We've eaten here before and enjoyed the meals. This visit was a different experience. The food was a bit bland, veal was dry and 2 dinners were Luke warm. One tip I would offer is not to serve ravioli (very good by the way) in a bowl. It is difficult to cut and gets messy. We would go back but a repeat performance will force us to search for alternative Italian in the Springs.
Great food and service
Made a special stop here as we were in town for my wife's birthday & Mother's Day from Florida & daughter from LA.
This is a local favorite and it lives up to every expectation. We had 3 different entres' and 2 were vegetarian.
Old family history & recipes make THIS a MUST to eat and truly a 5 Star experience.
Thanks Shaun and Jennifer Webb
Went for Mother’s Day! Food was amazing!!
We ate there for Mother’s Day. It wasn’t as busy as I expected - just a normal busyness. There are definitely okay,better and best tables. It’s interesting to look into a very busy kitchen, but if you are looking for a romantic dinner ask to be away from the kitchen. Our server was efficient if not friendly, and the food was very good,
Food was good, service was decent. However the noise level was over the top! If you want to have a conversation with out yelling then I would suggest going elsewhere.
Always great food, wine, and service. You can’t go wrong!
The food was delicious! It was Mother’s Day so the restaurant was very busy but the
waitress Jen did a great job!
My family went for Mother's Day and we had such a wonderful time celebrating mom. Our server was very friendly and kind. The food was amazing. The pasta dishes were just the right size . We had the calamari that didn't disappoint and don't even get me started on the dessert's that they offered for the day. My family left completely stuffed and satisfied and even my kids asked if we could come back sometime. I highly recommend if you want some great Italian dishes. You will not be disappointed.
We were hoping for a more quiet place to celebrate our anniversary. Outstanding service and food!
Excellent food and menu. Relaxed atmosphere and a great place we come to whenever we are in Colorado Springs.
Our. Favorite Italian Restaurant in Colo Springs. We go weekly. Franco, Owner is a generous man. He takes care of manof us in such a special way. Thank you Franco.
Had friends travelling in, and was a great opportunity to show off Old Colorado City and Franco's place. He has done so much to revitalize the area, along with all the other small businesses. My friends were equally impressed. You can't go wrong here, or his upstairs establishment, Sopra
very nice! My brother came to visit me- last saw him a year ago. He really enjoyed it as well.
VERY GOOD FOOD AND AN EXCELLENT WAITRESS . A LITTLE NOISY BUT THAT SEEMS TO BE THE NORM IN TODAYS RESTAURANTS.DOESN'T BOTHER THE SILENT TEXTERS
Great food, everything you would expect. Would go back!
We started with mussels and fried calamari, I could have made a meal out of just that and the wonderful salad. I ordered Veal scalopini in a cream sauce with artichoke hearts, mushrooms and bowtie pasta. It cut like butter and would melt in your mouth. We ordered chocolate cake and tiramisu. So good! Also had a glass of Sangria. Would recommend anytime!
We generally stop in for lunch. The prices are reasonable and the food is plentiful. While we were there the atmosphere was pleasant (quiet) allowing for conversation. However, with all of the hard surfaces in the room, it could get quite energetic if the room is filled.
If you like good Italian, then this is the place for you.
Great food. Outstanding service!
Our server, Katy, was awesome. The food was good, too. We always enjoy eating at Paravincis.
Wonderful food and a great atmosphere. We loved it for a special celebration dinner - casual, delicious, fun time!
Delicious all around as per usual. Love it there!
We went for prom and I was a super great time. Good food and great service.
This restaurant was rated as romantic when I googled it and a coworker also recommended it. We were seated right near all the kitchen traffic, the place was extremely noisy, everything was rushed. The food was ok, the wine was good. Don't think we'll be back.
The staff were great. The place reminded us of a dozen Italian places in NYC (our hometown) so our hopes were high about the food. It was just OK but maybe they had an off night. In particular the bolognese sauce was not bolognese sauce. It was red sauce with meat and not tasty. The gnocchi was heaven the sauce well not good. I also had the wedding soup and it was soup (good) with enough raw spinach on top of it to make a salad. Weird.
That said, we will go back as I think they had an off night.
Sorry except for the bolognese sauce that was a very sad red sauce with ground beef. I wouldn’t order until the cook reads a recipe.
Had a lovely birthday celebration - wait staff was very accommodating and helpful.
Great food and great atmosphere every time!
Great food and fast service. Everything on the menu is great! Best Italian in Colorado Springs
Very accommodating wait staff. So friendly! Food was delicious as always. So happy we picked Paravicinis for our get-together!
It was fun to have dinner at a restaurant that serves delicious old school Italian comfort food that was easy to get to (plus parking) and had such great service. We were sad to hear that a table left around the same time we did stiffed our wonderful waitress on her tip -- not cool! Definitely would go back again when we are visiting the Springs!
Always amazing food! Made to order, NOT pre-made!
Always a favorite. Great food and wine. Went for birthday but is wonderful for everyday get together.
Amazing food and service. Best Italian food I've ever had in colorado. Highly recommended
Would definitely recommend. We are in town visiting family and had a wonderful dinner. Food , wine , and service were all excellent. Great dining experience.
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.
Fantastic food choices and great staff. This small gem is worth the drive and has become my favorite place to commune with friends. Celebrate special occasions & go on a great date.
Awesome came for our honeymoon it’s was very lovely
Excellent food! Had foods I had before (wedding soup, arancini) but with unique touches that put them over the top delicious! Main courses were excellent, prepared perfectly and uniquely! Will definitely be back next time we’re in town!!
Excellent food and very good service. The Chef’s Specials were excellent. We had two different veal dishes that were both very good.
