We sat for almost 20 min before haven a drink order taken. When the drinks finally came the waiter tried to run off before we could order and I had to call him back and asked if he would mind if we ordered. He did become more attentive after that .

we always go to restaurant week at cucina colore for the excellent food and great value. We vist CC 3-4x a year or more usually . Our wait staff, Amanda and her associates were prompt , friendly and knowledgeable about the food and wine offerings. The food was delicious. We had the calamari and the tuna avocado appetizers which were excellent! Their romaine salad is excellent. The entrees were delicious as well. The peach bread pudding is so yummy. Our only concern was the noise level in the restaurant but the food was so great it was worth it

Felt like our waiter was on something? Served sour milk or cream with chocolate for our kids cold chocolate milk? Served us a standard pizza and we ordered a margarita pizza? He forgot we had ordered 5280 and asked if we wanted dessert when we had already ordered our dessert from the beginning?

Overall we love Cucina and will return but not loving that situation.

Been here a few times, food is always consistently good. We had a reservation for 7:30 normally I’m pretty patient but we had 2 small children with us, we arrived at 7:20 didn’t get seated till 8:10, so waited 40 minutes which is unexpectable when you’ve made a reservation. We weren’t offered a drink or anything to compensate for the wait time while we were sitting there and they told us 3 times a table was being cleared and that was clearly not the case.

Cucina Colore has been our go-to bar and restaurant for almost twenty years. On only our third trip back there in 1998, the bartender caught my eye when we came in . . . my martini beat us to our table. Their pastas are always just right and their seafood is outstanding. It's our most visited restaurant in Denver.

This review reflects our experience on Valentines Day. We had reservations for 6pm and we were promptly seated at that time.
We were each given a complimentary glass of champagne. We ordered our meal from a limited menu which consisted of items on their regular menu which was just fine. We dine at CUCINA Colore fairly frequently and have never complained about the quality of the food...it’s always terrific and this experience was no different. However the service was very slow even considering it was Valentine’s Day....otherwise, it was a pleasant experience \...
