Italian
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.

First time at Pizza Republica and the food was excellent! You never know how good the non-pizza items will be at a pizza place - I ordered GF pasta with shrimp and it was SO good. Pasta was perfectly cooked and I would have never known it was gluten free. Shrimp were fresh and delicious (I'm from the east coast so I'm picky) the dish was balanced and great!

We had a lovely server who made some fantastic wine recommendations. The only reason I am dinging the service a bit was because it was on the slow side - granted they were quite busy. Wouldn't keep me from coming back though!

Definitely, especially if they are attending an event at the DPAC. It was a pleasant place to grab dinner before seeing a show. We got there an hour before our reservation (they complimented us on beating traffic) and were promptly seated in spite of our early arrival.

Never disappoints. WE've been theire countless times for convenient and delicious pre-theater,-opers, or -concert supper at the nearby DCPA. Vistors to the Convention Center and nearby hotels will be equally well served, in every sense of served. Outstanding eclectic but all- Italian wine list.

We arrived quite a bit early, and had no trouble or wait being seated. It's such a great spot for people watching, if you can get by the window. We eat there pretty much every time we go to a show at the DCPA or the Symphony. The food is really good, the wait staff is friendly and helpful, and the space is very comfortable.

I love that my husband and I can enjoy a wonderful meal at Pizza Republica right before we head over to the theater. Our server, Jeff, was attentive without being intrusive. He made sure we were taken care of knowing we had tickets to Hello Dolly. We always have a wonderful time with great food, service that is always the best and we are thanked for coming every time.

Great food and perfect for a bite before a show at the DPAC, or really whenever! They were conscious to our show time, and everything was delicious. Order an Aperol Spritz was delicious. Big windows give plenty of natural light.

We have never been disappointed at Pizza Republica - Downtown. Reservations for peak times are a must and our table was waiting for us. Service was top notch, fast, efficient, and NOT snooty! Caesar Salad was excellent with a fresh anchovy and both meals arrived promptly, hot and perfectly prepared.

The food was delicious! For us, this is the best place to eat when you are planning to attend an event at the DCPA. It is close, convenient and delicious! What was the most amazing was our server, Jen. We dined there maybe 3 weeks ago, coincidentally we were seated at the same table, we also had the same server. My husband jokingly said to her, you recommended a wonderful wine when were here a few weeks ago, I'm sure you remember which one it was. She didn’t ask if it was red or white or what kind of wine it was, she immediately told him the exact wine he had ordered. She also provided outstanding service to our table! Great dinner!

Server did a very good job in all respects though my companion complained that he lacked warmth. I was satisfied. He was conscientious and timely. Order was accurate, served at the right temperature. He checked on our satisfaction.
Food was well-prepared and portion sizes were just right - enough to satisfy, nothing to take home or feel guilty about over eating. We had no problem finding appealing selections from the menu.

We ate here Valentine’s Day for dinner when so many other restaurants were serving over-priced fixed course menus. We were looking for somewhere we could eat relatively quickly before the theatre. So pleased with Pizza Republica! They offer so much more than pizza (we thought it was a pizza chain.) Great service from a knowledgeable server. Excellent wine selection. We enjoyed burrata as an appetizer. Then we had 1/2 portion salads served in cool oval bowls. The chicken served with the mushroom risotto was a bit under seasoned, but the shrimp fettuccini was excellent. We recommend Pizza Republica and will be back!

As always, the food is wonderful and the selection of delicious dishes is unrivaled. We travel from Colorado’s western slope several times a year for a dose of culture, and each and every time make a reservation at Pizza Republica before theater performances. Excellent service by a young man, lovely atmosphere, and great experience every time. I recommend Pizza Republica to all my friends from western Colorado all the time. Thanks for your excellent service!

Our waiter was gracious to bring us several wines to taste so we could determine which to order. Unfortunately, he seemed very unfamiliar with the wines and had to ask for help in explaining to us. The food was great and service good as well. Will return as we do enjoy this restaurant.
