    One of our favorites and for good reason! The Waterbury steak was tender and delicious and, yes, it was spicy. My husband loved it! I had Chicken Pizzaiola which is at the bottom of the menu in the gluten-free section. It's served with risotto instead of pasta. But it should really be in both places; it's that good. Two chicken breasts are covered with a deep, dark, herby, delicious tomato sauce. The sauce does drown out the risotto a bit, but it's so good you won't care. We drank it with a very good Super Tuscan wine that's on the current specials list. Terrific service was the cherry on top.

    Great service and great food! We had spaghetti and meatballs, pesto pasta with shrimp added, Arincini, and Limoncello Lemon Drop; all delicious. We’d like to request our favorite dessert to be reinstated: the Bomba!!

    The food in the past has always been delicious, this visit, I was presented with my lasagna that was burnt on the bottom. I couldn't even cut through it with my knife. More than likely I won't order this again. My past visits have always been excellent..hopefully the manager will see that the cooks are more careful.

    We went to Pavarcini’s after it was recommended by several others & it did not disappoint. Service was great, including to our kids. Our server was Amber, but everyone we interacted with was very polite & helpful. We had mozz fritti app, chicken parm & chicken with garlic sauce (& artichoke and sun dried tomatoes…can’t remember name). It was all very good, but the tiramisu was exceptional. Highly recommend you save room for the tiramisu!!

    We came for the hype, having heard that this restaurant was the go to for Italian in Colorado Springs. We were led to a wet corner table in a tight space. My wife had to sit on here coat. Our server explained to we first timers that entrees include a side salad and pasta. Nice value statement. My wife ordered the Chicken Saltimbocca and I ordered the Steak Tenderloin based on the server’s recommendation. Honestly, the meal lacked flavor. Chicken Saltimbocca at Buca di Beppo far outclassed what we experienced. A Food Network recommendation got pummeled by a chain restaurant. Was surprised. The steak was cooked properly but the broth was thin and weak. The Angel Hair pasta could have been box purchased from a Safeway. Filling, yes. Amazing, no. The search for great Italian will continue.

    This is our favorite Italian restaurant. Our server, I don't remember her name, was very attentive and friendly. This visit wasn't up to their usual standard. The calamari appetizer was slightly overcooked which made the tentacles dry and the rings rubbery. For my entree I had the Fettuccine Gabriella. The pasta, shrimp and scallops were swimming in a thin white sauce that just overwhelmed the dish. Not the greatest meal I've had there but I will teturn.

    Would prefer to sit in a cozy booth next to my date versus a little tiny wooden 2-top table squished in a corner or sandwiched between others. Food was tasty and service quick. Would definitely return.
