Fantastic food. Server Sarah was so helpful with wine and meal recommendations. It was lovely, and did get quite loud. Will definitely go back!

I really thought the foods was fair. We ordered an appetizer of 3 risotto balls that we had a few years ago. The risotto was mushy and overcooked. The outside was undercooked. The chicken pasta was ok, better the next day. The salad wasn't fresh. The lettuce was old.

Service was fantastic. Food no so much

Lasagna was not hot, lukewarm in the center, cheese not fully melted. Dirty walls near the table, dirty curtain near the table. Overall, poor experience with service and food. Not worth $20 for plate of lasagna. Only thing that was good was a Caesar salad and even that had an "up charge."

We’re new to town and heard great things about Paravicini’s. We decided to celebrate our anniversary there Saturday and they did not disappoint! Excellent bruschetta, probably the best we’ve had! Our dinners were delicious and the wine was perfect! Sara was our server and she was awesome!! Must try the pumpkin tiramisu! We’ll be back soon!!

So went to the Lunch as it has its own menu and got a few drinks. Frankly I was surprised by the panini as they don’t skimp on the meat and the side salad is delicious.

Very busy for a Tuesday night., so the service was pushed. Most of the food was good, one, was cold when delivered and that was disappointing. Management did take care of the meal, which we appreciated.

We have been to Paravicini's many times, and typically really enjoy our food there (hence going there again). The food was not up to their usual standards, or ours. Both of our dishes were warm at best, not hot at all, and my wife's drink was bland for lack of a better word. Server was great, even though she was busy, and the overall experience was still good. But I think we'll avoid the restaurant on a busy Saturday going forward.

My wife and I were vacationing in Manitou Springs and received a recommendation from the hotel staff for restaurants but only one was her “My favorite Restaurant”and that was Paravinis Italian Bistro”.

We decided to try it for dinner and made reservations for Wednesday evening. My wife and I are glad that we did. It was a fantastic dinning experience.

Starting with the welcoming Hostess seating us and followed by the warm ambience (eclectically decorated with a mixer of Traditional Italian with a modern twist, it worked). Our Server was attentive to our desires and dedicated to providing excellent service, catering too all our dinner needs.

The finale was the food (and the dessert) which, my wife and I both agree on this, was the best Italian we have ever had. We only have one complaint and that is: we live in Dallas and will only have an opportunity for another dinner on a future vacation visit. Wish we could clone it or better yet ask that they open a location in Dallas, it would be a hit there to!

Tidbit: my wife asked our waiter what the name of the restaurant meant in English, he said the rough translated meant “for the neighborhood”! Perfect!

Extremely slow service last night. Our server explained there was a large party causing the backup. Then they ran out of steak and i had to order something else. I understand but they could have let us know that sooner, by that time we had sat there for an hour before reordering. Maybe its the Covid effect…..not enough help. The food was good and we did have an enjoyable experience just super slow

Everything was good this visit except the tables are too close to each other. It felt like I was dining with 2 other groups. It was so loud that we couldn’t have a conversation at our own table. Service was spectacular and the food delicious. I do have to point out the glass lights have a ton of dust. I noticed the dust last visit which I felt was nasty. Strange that they haven’t noticed how dirty they are. Or maybe they just don’t care.

Food was great and the server was friendly enough, but we were celebrating our kids’ 25th anniversary and there wasn’t any acknowledgement of that. And she forgot to bring the chocolate cake we ordered (which was probably better for us anyway).
