This is our fourth visit to Chow Morso. This is not a "rock star" restaurant. It is consistently good or great at everything it does without the customers feeling overwhelmed. It occupies that enviable position of providing satisfaction at reasonable prices . I have enjoyed their soup sandwich combinations for lunch- very yummy, and My husband can't stay away from their pasta vongole. Friends that have visited Chow Morso report that they intend to return.

Went to before the Stones concert. Great food and service (and great playlist!). Not pretentious. Excellent all around. Pastas and steak were delicious. Good for all ages. Highly recommend.

We had 3 adult kids, 2 adults and one senior and across the board, the service and food was phenomenal. We ordered calamari and the charcuterie as apps, LOVED the arugula salad except for a little too much dressing and several different pasta dishes. The pesto, gnocci, airline chicken and pork were great. Would love to come again.

The dining room was beautiful, the service spot on, and all of us, including some very picky eaters, thought our dishes were delicious and amply portioned. We applaud the Chow Morso Team and are planning on making this a regular destination on our list of favorites!

The team at Chow Morso went out of there way to make our outdoor dining experience in the rain enjoyable - almost like being in Europe. Of course the sidewalk free entertainment is always interesting.

What a new fun restaurant in downtown Denver to go to and enjoy some yummy pasta. I am personally not a huge eater, but was glad to see that the portions were great. NOT to small like a lot of places do today. My husband and I split a salad and then we both had our own pasta dish. The owner was there and he was making the rounds making sure customers were enjoying their evening. Our server and other support were attentive. Great night.

Unfortunately we had to run off to the symphony so couldn't linger over our food. My companion and I shared a mixed green salad (their salads are large), and we each had a pasta dish. She had a gluten free puttanesca and I selected the funghi tagliatelle. Both were delicious. The prices are reasonable and the service is excellent. I am delighted that the people from Barola Grill are offering something different, but equally delicious, from the more formal Barola.

Excellent food, great service, warm atmosphere. The noise level was so high, however, we felt that we had to yell across the table to our guests and were eager to get outside to the relative quiet of a LoDo Friday night.

Wow! The restaurant is modern, comfortable and vibrant... the service from the staff was so warm and friendly. We had the calamari and the fried savory pastry with ham (both amazing!) to start. The arugula salad was the best I had ever had! We shared 3 pastas and the gnocchi and the linguine and clams were outstanding. We are going to be back! Again and again!

I knocked a point off for the not real clean restroom. The paper towels were on the counter (not in the dispenser). Just yuck seeing the wet from someone else on the paper. And the sink drained real slow. Again yuck. So a few minor things that shouldn't be at the prices they charge. But we love the food so will be back. Hopeful these things will be addressed.
