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. Quite simply, we don’t cook for us or our ego, we cook for and serve you. 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 Dining Room is 10 people.

For larger groups we have a Private Dining Room for up to 36 people.

For all large groups, 8 or more, please make a reservation. There will be times when we cannot seat large parties on a walk-in basis.

The food and service were great. It can get a little excessively noisy when busy but not to bad. The pizza's are delicious!

The setting is lovely - relaxed elegance. Perfect for a date or evening with friends. We shared the barata and the olive and almonds appetizers. They were both fantastic.
We also had the kale and beet salad and caesar salad, both excellent. I really enjoyed the gluten free margarita pizza. But my husband and one of our friends had the short rib with polenta and found it disappointing compared to the same dish at Humboldt Farm, Fish, and Wine.

The food was great but poor service. Our waiter pretty much ignored us once he took our order. Fortunately another waitress helped us when we needed something and our waiter wouldn’t even look at us.

Great pizza - especially gluten free pizza! The pizza's could have used a bit more cheese though.

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.

Our waitress was excellent - friendly, attentive, knowledgeable, fun and helpful. The food was served very quickly and was all very good. The room was a little cold, but not too bad. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves.

Meal was delicious. Wait staff was generally attentive and noise level was good for a full restaurant. Conveniently located for a night at DCPA.

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.

We always eat here when we go to the theater. The servers always ask if we are going to a show and pay attention to timing. The fresh Burrata is out of this world. Very nice wine list.

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.
