Pizza Republica - Denver Downtown Ratings and Reviews
It was just meh. Pizza choices look good in writing but fail to deliver on taste. One kind of Italian beer, Moretti on tap and mine was totally flat. The asparagus appetizer wasn’t tender but it did have a lovely flavor. The salad was overdressed, I only ate a few bites.
I would go back for the convenience to the Buell, otherwise it wouldn’t be even a thought.
We had Caesar salads that were way over dressed and bad lettuce((brown). They took charge off menu so that was good. Just felt like food was over done—too much Dressing, too much garlic, etc. our waiter was efficient and I did appreciate them taking off salads. We just wanted a nice experience on Christmas Eve and it was a bit disappointing.
I came here with six girlfriends last night for my birthday and before a show at 6:30. I asked for a table for six when I arrived at 4:30 and was told no, despite the restaurant being empty. When the six guests showed up, we were told by the host we had to leave because we were a fire hazard at the table they’d seated us at.
In the time we were ordered several rounds of drinks and appetizers which came out quickly and tasted fine, but then when we ordered the pizza it took nearly 40 minutes, so we asked for it to be put in a box. When the host told us a second time we had to leave, we grabbed our pizza to go and ate it standing in the bar area - to which we were told we were not allowed to eat our Pizza Republica pizza out of a Pizza Republica box because it “was bad for their image.”
Given that all of the problems were their fault, it was pretty frustrating that we got blamed for everything. I’m surprised they don’t have more experience serving people who have to make it to a 6:30 show, given that they are the restaurant next door. Will not be back.
Pizza Republica is a fabulous place to enjoy pizza and a little wine before going to productions at the DCPA. The location is just a block or two from the theatre. Pizza Republica has an extensive menu with some usual and unusual items to enhance your pizza. Very good and tasty.
The staff provided great service with just the right touch of attention. Because of traffic in Denver, we arrived late for our reservations. I did call them and they were very accommodating to push our reservation later as needed.
This is our favorite place to go before a show at the Denver Center for Performing Arts. The are fast and the food is delicious. They also have a wonderful wine list. Unfortunately they've gone with American sodas and dropped the Italian sodas, but that is the only complaint.
There were 8 in our party and we were able to enjoy time with everyone as our table was in a back room. Our server was helpful and prompt and when the dessert we ordered took too long, they took care of it and still brought it out. Great dinner and experience!
Food was all delicious and the service was amazing. Our washer was very attentive and made sure to check on us often but not so much that it became bothersome. He also did a fantastic job answering all our questions and describing every facet of the meal in detail.
Hats off to the Sangria, it is now a new favorite... AMAZING!
Went to meet a friend that I havent seen in 8 years.
I suggested this place since its close to convention center and have been here before and was good but NOT THIS TIME.
We showed up on Thursday evening, bar empty with 1 other couple.
**Bartender ( female) basically talked to couple for 10-15 min b4 we were waited on and told us to "hold on"...
**She was semi quiet, snooty and a tad rude like we were inconveniencing her. Bar was empty 90% of the time until the plays were out.
**Food was so disappointing. Caprese salad- ( mozzarella was old, sour and bad), had a dirty plate to take back. Although the basic Italian salad with balsamic dressing was very good! Pizza was good.
**Overall, this dinner should of been a slam dunk, but we just overall felt like the waitress was a dud and was just kinda getting through her evening with energy nor care. Just going through motion I guess.
** This restaurant gets a ton of out of state customers so this is perfect place to shine.
Bartender usually ROCK! We Just had a dud night with service.
Best part of dinner was the service. We had an absolutely awesome Core Cori(?). I had margarita pizza. It was ok..served on the cool side, not piping hot. Chicken and pear salad, amazingly delicious. Rigatoni Bolognase was my hasband’s Choice...he loved it.duck and fig pizza also got a thum’s up. Nona’s stuffed shells...Yummy. Chianti 🍷 delicious. I would return often if I lived in Denver.
Our only complaint was the length of time it took to get our entrees after we ordered. We informed our server from the outset that we needed to be out at a certain time for the theater. Our drinks and salads came quickly, but it was at least another 20 minutes afterwards that we got our pizzas and then had to eat fairly quickly.
Everything was top notch. Quality ingredients combined with wood fired oven and our spicy Diablo pizza as good as ones we had in Italy. The beet and kale salad with candied walnuts, goat cheese was perfect taste combo. Our waiter Chris very attentive and made some great suggestions including fab tiramisu to end our meal.
We chose Pizza Republic due to being so close to the theatre, and the reviews were good. We loved it! The burratta appetizer is fantastic, and they have an extensive wine list. Our waitress was friendly, timely and had good suggestions. Will definitely go again!
The food was prompt, tasty and plentiful. I really appreciated our great service though. I've been getting more and more disenchanted with the service I seem to encounter in so many Denver restaurants lately, but that was not the case at Pizza Republica. Our server was so pleasant, made great recommendations, attentive and friendly. We will be back!
Great meal pre-theatre. Elvie was a very busy but attentive and personable wait person. We started out with sharing a tasty brushetta (note: the olive tapenade is very LIGHTLY spread throughout the tomatoes, but if you want to taste the goodness of it full out please ask your wait staff for a little extra) I had their Chicken Caesar salad which was AWESOME and there were 2 incredibly moist and delicious breaded chicken breasts on top of a very nice caesar dressing.(I'd LOVE to find out how they managed to flatten the chicken breasts and STILL stay o moist? Buttermilk marinade?)...but unfortunately there were just two halves of an anchovy on the salad. :(
Then my husband and I shared a Giacomo pizza (YUM!) but after the 2 entree sized salads (we were warned!) we were both too stuffed to finish it and had to bring it home (but it was just as delicious for lunch the next day.)
The atmosphere was great and the food was delicious! You could taste the homemade, love put into the food. The meatball was so good! Our server Chris was very helpful, knowledgeable and overall great in helping us to have a wonderful experience for the moment we sat down! Will definitely recommend!
We love going here - before going to the ballet at The Ellie or other shows! So close by!Plus the food is excellent! It is NOT just a pizza place! They a good selection of other choices, but their pizza is EXCELLENT! I especially love the Crisp Wild Mushroom Ravioli with Arugula! And also the Beet and Kale salad is another favorite! You shouldn't be disappointed!
We were very happy with our meal. But when our waiter learned we were splitting a salad and a pizza (me and my husband) it was obvious that he felt we wouldn't be a money-making table and the service was mediocre at best. Would definitely not recommend for a cost with so many other places to go
