Welcome to Pizza Republica! The word republic is derived from the Latin phrase res publica, which can be translated as a public affair. In our eyes it helps define our hospitality and passionate culinary style. We strive to bring the rustic ambiance and fresh ingredient farm to table philosophy found throughout Italy, home to Colorado. We use the finest imported ingredients and century old artisan traditions to bring the definitive Neapolitan pizza experience to our guests.

The largest group we can accomodate in our Main Dining Room is 6 people.

For larger groups we have a Private Dining Room for up to 36 people. This is the only area we have for groups 7 or Larger. All large groups will have to book through Mr, Lindsey Strudwick at banquets@pizzarepublica.com,

For all large groups, 6 or more, please make a reservation. There will be times when we cannot seat large parties on a walk-in basis.

Dinner last night was rushed. Hadn’t finished salad and pizza was served. It was cool as though previously mad. Most of the crust had no topping on it about and inch into the pizza.very skimpy on duck, figs, and chicken. Not the kind of experience I would expect from this price range restaurant

This was our second visit and we were very pleased with the food and staff. We had different pizzas each time and both were excellent. I look forward to trying them all. They have a large menu and the beverage selection is great. It's my favorite place close to the Performing Arts Complex.

The service was great...and the food was moderately good. My ten year old granddaughter finished her child portion of pizza, and the Caesar salad with salmon was a full-size portion. While good, it was. It a big portion. And, I drank water and she had a soda pop. The bill came to over $40 for this salad, pizza and one drink. I personally that is over-priced.

Contrary to what they say, this is not authentic Italian pizza.
And it's very greasy.
The salad did not seem fresh.

Service was wonderful, the food was just okay. We had Brussel sprouts as an appetizer and they were terrible. Pizza was a little soggy.

It was not a busy evening and yet our server was distracted and disinterested. Our Caesar salads didn’t come out until after our dinner was served and consumed. She was unapologetic, which seemed rude.

We went here for a pre-DCPA show lunch and it was perfect. We were able to sit on the patio where even though you are in the busy downtown it was still quiet and lovely. Our server was perfectly attentive and the pizzas we ordered were delicious. And make sure to try dessert they are amazing!

Was not impressed with the pizza this time around. Flavorless, not enough sauce. Not good for the price.

We had a great meal at Pizza Republica and loved our server (Nick). The most surprising part was how empty it was on a Friday night. More people should be coming here! We especially loved the flatbread appetizer.

Terrible service. Took forever to receive first course. Then pizzas and pasta delivered 30 sec later. I made several comments to the food deliverer. He blatantly ignored me. I shared my frustration with the server. He sheepishly said, sorry. No action to try and make amends. Eating $20 cold, mediocre pizza? Never again.

Went here for lunch with the family after the chalk art festival. The service was great and everyone enjoyed their pizza, which was all we ordered. We sat outside so I can’t really attest to the inside ambiance but it seemed like it might be loud if crowded (lots of hard surfaces). The patio was nice and the majority of it was covered which we may have needed if we were a half hour later. I love a good wood-fired pizza and this did not disappoint. I just wish such a simple dish wasn’t $18. Compared to elsewhere in Denver that’s probably considered reasonable. Their wine list is enormous! And there menu looked really appealing. Our waiter was great. I’d definitely go back.

The food and service were good. I'd recommend this restaurant, and it's especially convenient if you're using light rail and/or attending a theater performance. We had an unusual issue with our seating though. We had a reservation, and were seated on the patio at our request. Within 15 minutes it became too windy/stormy to sit outside, so we requested to be re-seated inside. However, we were told we could not be accommodated. We had already ordered drinks and an appetizer, so it seemed odd to hear there were no options. After some discussion, our waiter was able to get us pizza counter seating. That was acceptable, but I never understood the issue with being re-seated. The manner in which it was handled by management was unpleasant.

Great service, wonderful food - Our waiter was attentive without hovering and the pizza was delish. GF is tricky and my daughter needs vegan also.

Atmosphere was great, a bit loud since it is popular.

The food is good. However, the host/greeter needs to learn how to accommodate paying guests. He was rude and not at all accommodating. We were meeting a group of four and asked to for them to be seated close to us....there were plenty of open tables. When the group arrived, and the table next to us was still available, he started seating them as far away as possible. When we asked him to seat them next to us, he grumbled all the way. Does he not realize that the customers are who is paying his salary?
