Good place but way overpriced. Very little meat in the lasagna and more would balance out the excessive pasta. Ricotta cheese was absent from all indications. Maybe you guys don't use that stuff. Nice salad and enjoyable afternoon meal.

Birthday dinner with friends .
Service and food are always consistent. Sometimes very loud and annoying for older diners .
Social distancing was taken into consideration and tables were far apart .

So been twice in less than 4 weeks. Lia, first server, excellent, food, excellent, everything? Excellent!
Last time, Grace was server, excellent again, food, excellent again. Everything, excellet again.
The only disappointment that has absolutely nothing to do with the restaurant per se, that their servers wear the cutest masks. I discovered that (Sharon, I think) made them for the staff. So cute! We (my group) are healthcare providers and wanted to order some, but no can do. Understand, but SO disappointed. Our "patients" would love to see is in something fun and cute instead of sterile and serious.
Good job to you all. Love every minute every time.
My only, not totally positive comment is, it gets a little stuffy and warm inside, not really a complaint just a comment.

The food was bland and unremarkable.
This was a good restaurant but the quality of the food has degraded.
We used to regularly visit this restaurant but we will not return.

This has been and always will be one of my favorite restaurants. I will find any excuse that I can to dine here between their delicious authentic Italian food, great wine selection, amazing staff, and great ambiance - why shouldn’t you come here?

We recently had dinner at Paravicinis Italian Bistro. The food and service was very good and we really enjoyed ourselves. It was a little noisy but not so loud you couldn't have a conversation. Will be back for sure.

Food got cold while waiting for additional topping/ sauce, which we had to ask for twice. The Charcuterie platter needed more vegs (carrots, celery, grapes) and maybe a little more bread/ crackers. Had a wonderful time with my friends, until our waitress 'casually mentioned' that she had a large group coming in which was to be seated where we were.... really?!?! But no rush....

We were vacationing from Florida. After watching this restaurant on Diners Drive-in and Dives we knew we wanted to eat there. Needed a reservation! Our food was excellent but a little pricey. Service was excellent.

Family was in town visiting and my sister has severe food allergies. Waitress was cognizant of what was used to make all the dishes and able to make suggestions and recommendations. She was able to catch the kitchen on some prep errors for her dish. A real life saver.

Food was excellent all around, as usual. I have never had any complaints with the food or service.

I took my Mom and Dad to this restaurant on Thursday, July 23rd at 5:00pm (they are both 80 years old) I thought it would be safe during COVID-19. At first everything was fine. Tables were spread out. Then a party of at least 16 came in and they sat them near us. I didn't feel comfortable. We had to move to another table away from the big group/party. We then received our salads. My waiter brought my caesar salad to me without any dressing on it. I thought maybe this was a fluke and the rest of our meals would be fantastic......I was wrong. My father order the veal piccata. The veal was very tough. I was shocked!! He had to ask for a different meal. He ordered the veal parmigiana. he finally received his meal after my mom and I were done with our meal. Very disappointing!! I thought at this point that they would at least comp my father's meal. That did not happen. When I told them that we would not come back they offered us a dessert to share...WHAT!!!....CRAZY!!! We spent $170. It's one thing to have a bad meal, but to also have management to not care is a wow factor. We asked if the owner was in and they said he was in but not available. I can't believe this restaurant got a gold star in the best of Colorado Springs magazine.

We really enjoy dining here. Service is always excellent. Although we like patio dining, yours is a tad too loud. But that will not stop us from eating there, inside. Because your food is delicious

We couldn’t have had a better server, and our food was outstanding. I was pleased to discover that many of the recipes can be adapted for gluten intolerance! That opened up the menu to me considerably. It was my mom’s last day in Colorado Springs for a visit, so it was the perfect meal to celebrate. I can’t wait to return.

One of our first times out during the re-opening phase of the pandemic.
We sat outside where the tables were spaced apart. Staff all had masks. They did a great job making the dining experience a pleasure, especially under the circumstances.
Food and service was excellent!
We will be back!

Fabulous local Italian restaurant, amazing food. Spicy calamari, shrimp risotto, chicken Marsala are all great options. Chef Marco is very generous to the community, a local hero. Have dinner here, you will be glad you did.

Disappointed in the calamari, which in the past was great. It was a small portion and over fried and skimpy hard pieces. The bartender did not know how to make an Old Fashioned, used cherry juice instead of simple syrup. The entree (Tutti de Mare with red sauce) was good but the sauce was watery and bland. The bread was warm and crusty and very good. Service was great, a very attentive server. We have eaten there a number of times over the years and this was our first disappointment. Perhaps kitchen staff has changed, but it'll be a while before we try it again. Sorry! Will give mixed reviews to friends when asked.

Great service! Graeme is simply the best.
The veal was inconsistent. Some portions very tender and succulent and some, very rubbery. I left it on the plate because it was not able to be chewed up.

I've lived in Colorado Springs for 35 years now and I recently ventured out and found this little gem. Paravicini's is hands down the best Italian food available in Colorado Springs. If you haven't tried Paravicini's it's a must. We are headed back for round two and its only been a week since our first visit. Can't wait.

Decent food, cute environment but nothing special, and adequate service. The kitchen staff was extremely loud and we could over hear them talking about their weekend excursions. Our server was kind, but did not clear our plates from appetizers as she brought entrees. Two out of three entrees I'd call mediocre and one I'd consider good. The prices were quite steep for the quality, but that is to be expected in Old Colorado City which is geared toward tourists. Ok experience overall, but we are not in a rush to go back.

Three of us had veal entrees, all cooked differently but all delicious. Yummy cannolis for dessert. Wish they would have had the stuffed squash blossoms.
