My server was great, but the restaurant's priority was a large private party dominating the bar. It was obvious they they didn't have the staff or resources for both the party and restaurant service. I stood at the host stand for 5 minutes before someone arrived and took me to my table. The bar was incredibly backed up; I waited nearly 20 minutes for a cocktail and my server stopped by to apologize 3 before it was finally delivered. I resorted to ordering wine in advance to ensure I received them in a timely manner. I was disappointed that the grilled radicchio salad was mostly romaine. They were out of my first choice wine and I got the last Steak Carpaccio pizza of the night. For such a limited menu, I was disappointed by the availability and quality. My server was the only exemplary aspect of an otherwise disappointing experience.

With the great reviews, expected a more hip, high level experience. It was VERY quiet and didn't feel had much ambience. Wine list was actually not bad, decent prices. Pizza was mildly tasteless, the meatballs were so dense and also a bit lacking. New to Denver so maybe should have done more research. Overall I don't want my money back but wouldn't go again.

Slow and overly casual service for the price. Pizza delicious and unique. Refrigerator Budino dry around edges- had been there awhile. Inside atmosphere lovely but sat outside in loud traffic d/t Covid. Probably would pass next time on this pizza place.

We liked our waiter and the salad was good but the pizza was dreadful--tasteless, soggy crust, and uninspired toppings. There is so much good wood-fired pizza in the world and this was disappointing to say the least

Not what you'd expect for a restaurant in a hotel. Stellar Italian food (we had some pizzas) and very kind, helpful servers. Burrata salad was especially delicious. Dessert was the only average part about it. Would definitely recommend this place.

I am so glad to see Gattara opening up again! My son and I had an early dinner on a Sunday afternoon. The pizza is elegant and excellent--such a treat. He had the fennel sausage and I had the prosciutto pizza. Paired with the house wine--delicious. There is also a nice selection of beer (and other wine) as well. The desert menu also not to be missed. My mother used to drink Brandy Alexander, which is on the list, and a lovely evening after dinner relaxer. We shared the oatmeal cookie ice cream sandwich--also a wonderful after dinner treat. By the way, the patio was redone just before the virus closed everything--stonework, spaced seating, a nice sound system, open air, and a couch/sitting area if one prefers. It is really nice to sit outside--peaceful, relaxing, a little park area across the street, private, and just chill. Not be forgotten--the staff always are so kind and attentive. Alicia and Brendon are amazing wait staff/bartenders. Thanks for such a lovely, and delicious afternoon.

Unfortunately everything we ordered that was not pizza was very over cooked: octopus, meatballs, salmon. The pizzas, however, were very good. The salads were also fine. I would not go back because the restaurant was virtually empty and the items I previously mentioned were completely overdone. Also the speaker above our head was blown out making the music unbearable, the staff was very nice to turn it down for us when we asked. We each had a margarita and they were good, but took a very long time.

The kitchen was understaffed and our food took a very long time. There is a possibility that our server lost the order because most other tables were served before us even while seated long after us.

The server broke the cork off in our wine.

The lighting was bright enough to be close to the surface of the sun.

The temperature was so cold inside that a most every single guest was wearing a full coat while dining.

Brendan, who was not our server, did his best to try and make it right and I appreciate that.

Due to COVID, the tables were extremely spaced out (like, overly spaced out), there was nothing on the tables, no decor. It felt like an empty cafeteria. We booked Valentine's and they put us in a back corner in the bar in plastic booths.. it was just a very odd ambiance. I'm sure it's must better during normal times. Menu looked good but unfortunately we didn't want to pay that price for an uncomfortable dining room.

This was our first time dining and we were very impressed. The service was great, food was delicious and the Somali cocktail alone is worth returning for. The only issues 1) Valet parking was backed up at the hotel so had to park and walk, 2) it was so cold outside (Valentine's weekend 2021) that we were shivering sitting by the windows. The host did adjust the temperature at our request but it did cool our meals quickly.

The pizza was great and made with good quality ingredients. The $14 meatball appetizer was a hug disappointment though. They were overcooked and tasted like they were just reheated frozen meatballs; if you’re gonna charge that much for meatballs you should make sure they are homemade. The staff were all extremely helpful, courteous and attentive. Overall it was a good experience.

I had a fantastic dinner at Gattara, the Braised Short Rib entree is rich, flavorful, and delicious, so much so, that I was looking forward to having my leftovers the next day. The service provided by our server Brent was great, he was attentive, cheerful and had great recommendations for us. I look forward to returning to try some of their other items.
