The seating for reservations was disappointing, right by the door on a cold day. One could feel the cold wind very time a customer came thru the door. However, the hostess was very accommodating and found us a table away from the front door. We just had to wait 15 minutes.

We ordered clams Posilipo and antipasto to start, both excellent. Family style salad served next, very fresh and tasty. Entrees chosen were swordfish (from chef specials menu), and veal porcini. The swordfish was fantastic, perfect seasoning and portion, prepared perfectly, and very aesthetically pleasing. The veal was a bit overdone and chewy, but my partner didn't want to return it and finished every last bite. Our server, Amy, timed the courses perfectly. The only thing that would make this a better experience would be if a server or busser would clean table in between course after they remove the used dishes. Crumbs and water spots make for an unattractive table. Otherwise, this is our second time here, and definitely won't be our last.

Service was below average. We got our cocktail and beer AFTER our appetizer. The salad I had stayed on the table the entire meal instead of being taken off once I was finished. My husbands veal chef special was cold in the middle of the meat so he was only able to eat 1/2 of a $25 dish. We were very disappointed.

This was our second visit and it did not disappoint. The hostess was very accommodating when we asked to be seated in another location. Our server, Rachel was friendly, attentive and knew the menu. We had the tortellini with prosciutto and the Veal Toscana. Both came out perfectly seasoned and flavorful. The entrees come with a salad bowl to share. The portions are ample and you will likely have plenty left to take home. Be sure to make reservations because this place is very popular and you will have to wait for a table without one.

It was my wife’s birthday. Everything was great; seated within 5 min of reservation, greeted by wait staff right away, ordered appetizers right away. The food has great flavor; the calamari is exceptional and I also enjoyed the Cod Florentine!

The only negative, if you wanna call it that, is that we couldn’t get the waIt staff’s attention for the bill right away.

Overall, great experience.

Our server was very attentive! He even gave me a Happy Anniversary card with a 15% off of my next visit and complimentary dessert! Everything was wonderful and we were seated in a back smaller dining room which I preferred. The main dining room I feel is very loud, tables are a little too close together 😏.(the only negative item)
All in all we will come back!!

Ordered the swordfish special and was disappointed with its preparation- the fish was over cooked and tough, and the hot peppers tasted like something out of a jar instead of being fresh. I expected more creativity from this establishment but assume that it was just an anomaly.

The place is in an old building on the west side of Colo Springs, which has a great ambiance, and easy access. The appetizer we had, arrenchinni was good and the pesto cream sauce was to die for. The lobster bisque was good, but the lobster was crumbly, instead of chunks and a little fishy, not quite as fresh as it could have been. We both had a veal dish and they were both excellent, but my veal was over-cooked, with the edges curling up, and the meat was not fork tender, as you should expect veal to be. I must say they timed the meal to give you time to eat, and enjoy each course, and the service was spot on.

A little disappointed in the food. The broccoli was ice cold, which tells me it was not freshly steamed. The whole night felt dialed in.

As with every other visit, this was no exception. My sister is out of town, so my brother in law and my niece's fiance made reservations for Easter evening for dinner. Everything was SO delicious and the service was great! Even our picky eater was impressed and LOVED his meal. This is one of my favorite places in the Springs. Old Colorado City is fun to visit with all the gift shops so, if you're in the area, take time to stop in for a delicious Italian meal at Paravicini's!

This food was over priced, bland, and over cooked. The sauce tasted like it was from a jar, the wine tasted expired, and the bruschetta we ordered had hot cheese and cold tomatoes on it (strange combo). I would not recommend this place if visiting the springs.

I really do appreciate Paravicini's being able to reserve a table by the window, as requested. Noise level was a bit loud for casual conversation as there is hardly any room in between tables -- you have to turn sideways to get in-between tables. Meal was delicious! Service was exceptional! Sunday dinner is very busy / restaurant was packed full, so would highly recommend making a reservation. I have recommended this place to numerous friends and co-workers. Well worth the visit!

The food was excellent, we will keep coming back for this reason and this reason only. The service, on the other hand, left something to be desired. I'm not sure if I would blame the wait staff though. The owner made them uncomfortable (it was obvious), with her constant pouring of her own mixed drinks from the bar. Also, this one really bothered me, the manager always had his hands (inappropriately) on the wait staff. Around their waists and other spots, made me uncomfortable.

The Tenderloin Gorgonzola e bellisima. Wonderfully rich and tender. Colorado Springs has a dearth of Italian restaurants that are not chains. This one would stand out anywhere.

The food is always very good here. The noise level is extremely loud. If you plan on conversation between friends, get ready to talk loud and hope you can hear what is being said. Server was very slow when we were there. She took a long time to get to our table, and a very long time to bring my glass of wine and take our order. That being said, I will definitely return to the restaurant because their food is definitely worth the inconveniences.
