We got there and only two other couples were in the restaurant. It took them forever to even come to our table, as they were too focused on the two other guests. Chicken Alfredo wasn’t good at all. The Alfredo was watery and the chicken wasn’t seasoned. The noodles were strange, some weren’t cooked, some were cooked good, and some were burned. We also drank all of our soda and never got asked if we wanted a refill. Our bread also came after our entrees, making it hard to enjoy the 10 dollar bread.

The food was dried out. Not enough sauce on any of our meals. Our waiter Only had two tables and did not check in on us often. The owner on the other hand was very friendly and nice. Hoping it was just an off night.

We come here often and always enjoy our time. The food is great. There is a solid wine selection. Staff is nice and fun. It is never fast so just plan for a good food at a slower pace you can enjoy.

Fabulous dining experience! Wonderful Brooklyn natives Dennis & JoAnn share family traditions in a cozy family atmosphere. Tremendous 7-cheese lasagne, “special” garlic bread, fresh and delicious Italian salad and dressing, and the most delicious cannoli we’ve eaten ANYWHERE!
Check this place out and enjoy!

Sunday afternoon lunch was incredible. Our server got a little backlogged because he was by himself when we came in, but he did his best and more and more people came in.
We enjoyed the garlic bread appetizer that was well worth the price. It had the perfect flavor of the garlic and butter that I just couldn't help but finish them off.
The lasagna was delicious, full of various cheeses and sweet Italian sausage. Even though I had skipped breakfast to leave room for the lasagna, I still ended up taking some back to the hotel room.
It is fairly small, well, not a very wide building but it is deep; so a middle isle and four person tables to each side, all the way to the back where it opens a bit more.
Dennis is great and met us at the door on our first try, but a Friday night is not a good time to try and fine an empty seat or two. I highly recommend getting reservations at least a few days in advance.
We will definitely make it a point to eat here on our next trip to the area.

We've eaten here at least ten times and always love it; however the set menu we didn't care for. Food was mediocre and we felt rushed. We'll definitely be back for the regular menu but not a set menu.

Ambience would have easily been a 5; except, we were the only couple in restaurant and when another couple came in they were sat right beside us.

Some of the best Italian food in Springs. Cannolis make the trip worth it alone, but the chicken parm and truffle pasta were phenomenal. Highly recommend.

Amazing food, couldn’t believe I’d never been there before. My aunt is a real cheese aficionado and said the fires mozzarella was the best she ever had. The amount of ingredients made in house is amazing too. Don’t sleep on this place, it’s worth the trip!

Delicious food!
Best Italian I've had in colorado springs. I highly recommend the Caprese antipasta as a starter. Everything on their menu sounds delicious. I went with a chicken dish. So good!
And for dessert, GET A CANNOLI!
Wonderful staff. Beautiful atmosphere

We tried Dat’s Italian under less than ideal circumstances - arriving after a full day swim meet with 15 hungry people on a Saturday night with a reservation for 11. 😬. The staff handled it expertly - helping us move a table and chairs to squeeze everyone in. From there, they did everything to make the meal stress free, replenishing water glasses and bringing out water pitchers, immediately placing appetizer orders, taking orders for each group by check to simplify breaking up the check at the end, and checking on everyone throughout the meal to be sure everyone had what they needed, etc.

The food at Dat’s Italian was great. In particular, the fried mozzarella was so delicious, as was the lasagna, pasta w chicken and truffle, sausage and pepper pasta as well as the pesto pasta. We skipped dessert,but with regret, as the taramisu and cannolis looked very very good.

Overall good experience, but I think we caught the chef’s on an off night. Ambience was nice and laid back. Place smelled amazing. Service was stellar, but the food is where it counts. That was the most lacking area and it’s also the primary reason you go out to eat. If we go back we’re ordering different plates.

Really great food. :) The service was ... well...not so great, but it seemed that there were only 2 people waiting tables, so that would explain that. The kitchen is tiny (also seemed to only be 2 people), but the food is seriously amazing.

We were in a little corner with no light. They provided a small book lamp light that was so bright we couldn't have it on. That is probably a good thing since we were tucked in a dirty corner where the floor wasn't even so I kept tilting backwards. Haha! The food was horrible. The mozzarella came out cold, the breading was greasy and mushy. My pasta was overcooked. My husband enjoyed the taste of his food but sent it back to get microwaved. Service was slow but they were nice at least. This place has gone down tremendously in the last 2 years. I was so disappointed!
