    We walked in and were seated immediately in the almost empty restaurant. About 5 minutes later another couple walked in and were seated elbow to elbow with us despite the restaurant being almost completely empty. The service was poor at best. The couple that were next to us that came in after us were served their appetizer first and there salads first. We ordered the Arancini that was advertised as being on the food network. It was mediocre at best. The sauce was cold, there wasn’t enough sauce for the 3 balls, and the balls themselves needed salt. We also ordered the fettuccine Gabrielle and upgraded to Caesar salads. The salad was the worst I’ve ever had. The croutons were soggy and the salad was watery. We had high hopes for the fettuccine Gabrielle but it was also mediocre. It needed salt, the sauce was too thin and didn’t “stick” to the noodles, and the scallops were a joke. The scallops were the size of a small marble. I had to hunt for them on my plate to see if there were any. The waitress offered us “fresh grated cheese” as she held a bowl of Parmesan that looked like she dumped it out of the Kraft bottle you get at Walmart. I feel ripped off. That meal cost $115.00 after an appetizer, 3 drinks total, and entrees. The couple next to us was even offered a loaf of bread when they asked for boxes for their meal. Our waitress didn’t bother. Very poor experience and definitely a waste of money.

    The manager was more interested in his “higher paying customers” than us, which was really disappointing. He didn’t even come over to our table until telling us “goodbye,” but our sever Paige was amazing. I/10 Recommend.

    Food was pretty good, not outstanding. We were seated very close to the door so anytime someone came in we felt a cold blast of air. Someone has to sit there I guess just wish it hadn't been us. Was a little loud and seating was pretty tight as were about 2 feet from the next party. Overall not bad but not as good as we had heard it was.

    Entrees were delicious and the service was great. Enjoyable atmosphere, but dining area could be a lot cleaner. The free bread is light and fluffy in the center, but the crust is so hard your gums end up paying for it.

    Seating was okay. I would have preferred a more private table that was not situated between two others but it was good because we got there early and the tables by us did not begin to fill until the end of our dinner. Our waitress, Amy, was excellent. She checked back on us and was thoughtful about food allergens. The entrees were excellent and so was the bruschetta. My husband had Shrimp Puttanesca and I had the Manicotti. My husband had the pancetta dessert which he really liked. I was very disappointed in the cheesecake. The layer of chocolate on the top was so hard, I had to turn the cheesecake over to cut it with my fork. The chocolate was overkill. I think the cherries on top would have been enough as I really think the chocolate ruins it. So, everything was great except the cheesecake.

    We met friends who had never been to this restaurant so it was fun for us to share such a great experience. The service, especially Lanette our server, was superb! The food is always amazing and each of us had a different entree. It is a busy place and can get loud at times but it is a popular place and we are glad that business is so good.

    This restaurant in the past put time and effort into their dishes, wasn’t the best Italian food, but for Colo Sprgs it was better than most. Our meal last night looked like it was thrown together in a rush, undercooked and presented poorly on the plates. Wine by the glass was sour/oxidized. Not sure if we will return again. I think they got away from quality and now are trying to get as many people thru and out the doors as possible. Just this late summer we had a great meal, not sure how it can go down hill so fast.

    Ambience: Our table was near the door during a busy time, so had to keep our coats on during dinner due to winter cold. All else: Taylor, our server, was exceptional; the food was simply the best (veal Tuscano); service was quick but not rushed.

    Very cute little place. The service was paced correctly, drinks were fabulous. The pink squirrel was a delicious surprise. Appetizer was quick and very tasty. The meals themselves were by far the best part. Everyone chose something different and all were excellent. Chicken Marco was fantastic with plenty to take home

    Hadn't been here in at least 10 years. Pleased to find the quality stood up over time. Had the fettuccine Gabrielle, husband had the manicotti. The red sauce was a but too acidic/sour for my taste, but the overall food experience was good. Service was adequate.

    This is a place we go for special occasions. The food and service is always great. Last night, however, we were seated in an area that got a huge blast of cold air every time the front door opened. Not much they can do but enclose the porch and make a vestibule. It would be worth it since Colorado is cold much of the year. Also, the tables are quite close together which is a little unnerving just because Americans like our personal space. Again, not much they can do except remove tables which would make it harder to get a reservation! We’ll be back of course!
