What an amazing menu. It was tough to make a decision. Great value across the board including the wine. There was a violinist that set the mood perfectly form out double date.

cannot recommend until I go 3 more times. First time was excellent however most recent visit (with a party of 6) was substandard. The food is decent to good and service is the same but the biggest problem is the restaurant is DARK (unless you're seated around the perimeter under ceiling lights which I loathe). Darkness (not as in romantic dimness but just plain dark) is as bad as dining under a kitchen ceiling light. One of our party ordered a veal dish, was delivered a chicken dish which he sent back but was billed for his meal! BTW he did not choose a substitute so it was obvious he was not eating.
Every restaurant has a bad day so we'll give it another chance but only for lunch. I won't take a chance being seated in the center of the room and unable to read the menu or see what I'm eating. This restaurant is friendly, right on 6th and has great potential -- I don't know how to fix the darkness but they need to do it or lose patronage to customers who come only one time and never return!

We love the "old school" atmosphere and vibe of the old Victorian that houses the Odyssey. Menu offers many classics from Italy and some perhaps less familiar but no less delicious items from Sicily, prepared with fresh ingredients and well executed. The service takes it's lead from the father/son duo from Palermo who own the restaurant and is always attentive and friendly. Italian spots come and go in Denver, some better than others, but Odyssey is timeless!

The pasta is great. I loved the fettuccine carbonara. They have a wonderful wine selection to pair with your meal. The atmosphere is lovely. The chef is very friendly and the staff serve to make your experience a great one. I highly recommend Odyssey to anyone who enjoys a homemade Italian meal.

It was just ok. I read the reviews and was really excited to try Odyssey but was a little let down. The calamari was outstanding and enough for 3 people. My husband sent his entree back and my eggplant stuffed with sun dried tomatoes, basil, and cheese just tasted like the red sauce that covered the plate.

From the start of walking in you knew that this was a charming place that puts a lot of love into their food. Our waiter we had was phenomenal, he knew the menu very well and all of his suggestions were lovely. We sat upstairs in the violin room, it was lovely. Everything from the meal to the service was wonderful and my whole family can't wait to go back when visiting again someday! Highly suggest the Pesto Gnocchi it was out of this world. All I can say is... just go you wont regret it! Thank you for the lovely meal Odyssey!
