The food was good but way over priced. I had lasagna, which tasted good but was different from any I have had before and I have had a lot of lasagna. I think it was around $19 and not a very large portion. They spread a little sauce on the plate and set an un-sauced piece of lasagna on top. Very dry, I had to ask for a little cup of sauce to put on top. The lasagna was mostly macaroni and crumbled meat. The ricotta was not noticeable. There were 4 of us and everyone enjoyed their meal, just a bit overpriced. It was Sat. night and the place was dead, we got there around 7:45. When we left around 10, there was just 2 other people in the place. Again, this is Sat. night. Like I said the food tasted good but at their prices for what you get I would not go back.

We enjoyed dinner with friends. The restaurant was busy but it was easy to have a conversation. The cocktails, food (sea bass special and pasta dishes) and service was excellent. This was our first time dining here and we will be back.

We went for Valentine’s Day. The food was good. It very dark and hard to see, but this restraint is consistent good and a neighborhood gem.

Simply amazing Italian food done right. This is the best Italian restaurant in Denver by far.

VERY disappointed! Always been a favorite. Ordered double cut pork chop and was served single cut with gravy! Bad wine too. Was told chef is using new distributer. I suggested he changes back or change menu. Manager said they'd gotten a lot of complaints. Ummm. What to do? Will try once more and hope they got the message.

We take our family here when they visit, we love it. Staff has good knowledge of wine and very professional. Food is always really good, our vegetarians are happy there. Great experience. The gelato is amazing.

My husband and I like to go to Locanda Del Borgo and we always have a great meal and usually we meet someone that we know.

Locando is a favorite for a quick bite before an evening event.

A hidden jem right in our neighborhood...didn't even know was here. Open fire grill...need I say more. Everything here in made here...a must will return. Ask to sit in Taylor's section...she is one of the best servers we've had in some time.

Our first time there. Wait staff was friendly, but not very knowledgeable about the food or drinks. Had to make several trips to find the answers to our questions. Felt the food was just par to similar restaurants and a bit overpriced for the portions. Also $4 for a luke warm cup of regular coffee with no offer of a refill is also overpriced.

Went to the restaurant, but it was closed for cleaning. No call indicating the closing. The manager suggested their sister restaurant, Cafe Mercato which was not far. It was delicious and had one if my favorite dishes from Sicily. Would definitely go back. Different menu from Locanda del Borgo but the same quality.

Actual, real, authentic (southern) Italian cuisine in CO! It does not get better than this. Had frito misto, lobster risotto (special) and cioppino. All the seafood was beautifully cooked. First time I’ve had cioppino and not been disappointed. Best Italian and seafood I’ve had in CO. You should go. (Dishes were a tad spicy.)

Disappoints yet again. We've been here 3 times as a family. It seems that there is always some part of the evening that doesn't work out . Tonight was the final straw. We were a table of 6. The food took well over an hour to arrive. 2 of our party had reasonably-sized portions, 2 people barely had any food on their plates. The prices are really high for the portion size. It's too bad because the sauces for pasta are good and the pizza is good. The server was just ok tonight, in the past it's been sketchy. In the end, after 3 visits, there is always some part of the evening that makes you feel less than satisfied when you leave . I've moved this restaurant off my list. Too many other consistently good Italian restaurants in town that I'd rather go to than to return to this place. PS we've been to their sister restaurant in Lowry. Even more expensive. Not planning to return there either.
