Great little spot in Denver. We loved our meal with excellent food options and wonderful deserts! Looking forward to visiting again!
While my girlfriend was running a "bit" late I used the time to call Shells and Sauce.
When we arrived it was almost as if they knew exactly who we were. As a chef myself,
I sometimes forget about this "gem" as it is in a small neighborhood group of stores.
Great variety on their menu, quick prompt service. ALL the portions are plentiful and they graciously pack your "doggie" box almost as good as a UPS store. While they were
busy and it is a small restaurant, we did not feel pressure to leave the minute we paid our
check. My girlfriend commented as we walked to the car, " we should make that a regular." We agreed on that,
Wonderful and the staff was beyond amazing!
Food was good, however the service for customers dining with the restaurant seem to come 2nd to the pick-up orders being called in. It took longer than usual for food to arrive to the table as we watched the staff rush to put to go orders in plastic bags. There were more to go boxes at the kitchen counter waiting to get packed than actual plates going out to the tables.
Service was great and the restaurant was very accommodating to our need to be seated outside. Thank you for offering outdoor seating.
We had a lovely time at Shells and Sauce. Food was delicious and customer service was fantastic. Thank you!
I had the caprice salad with extra grilled shrimp. It was delicious. I also had their signature martini which never fails to satisfy my thirst. I always enjoy eating here!!
We return to Shells and Sauce over and over for the consistently delicious food that is very fairly priced, well presented, and always fresh and good. The staff and management are lovely -- always service-minded and pleasant but not overbearing or fussy. Sitting outside on the patio is a wonderful, relaxing experience. This is a neighborhood gem and we are so happy to return to Shells and Sauce time after time !
Amazing food, sweet waitress, 10/10!
Great little Italian restaurant in Denver. Service was great and food was delicious.
Open air even indoors with the side garage door open. Always great service and food!
3 of us had a great Italian dinner outside. Beautiful evening and wonderful food.
Yummy and Cozy, Yummy and Cozy, Yummy and Cozy, Yummy and Cozy!
Friendly greeting and attentive service throughout by Logan and staff, food is always delicious and impressively large portions (read leftovers!!). A neighborhood gem that has done everything they can to make you feel comfortable and safe
Been going to Shells and Sauce since it opened. Always top shelf service and the food is outstanding all of the time. Never a bad meal. Great spot in a quiet location. A real jewel.
Amazing! We love shells and sauce and everything about it!
Amazing food, wonderful service, and we came at a time when it wasn't very loud. Such a great experience — we'll be back!
Incredibly knowledgeable staff and always amazing food! Also very COVID safe - staff taking precautions and everyone socially distance. We really enjoyed eating outside!
The service was amazing . They were so patient with my kiddos . And the food was even better!! Second time that I’ve been here and it did not disappoint
Just a great neighborhood place with consistent service great waiters and awesome food.
We ate early and reserved a patio spot, but I noticed lots of windows open inside and plenty of spacing out tables. They have added more outside tables also, if you're looking for outside dining. Been here many, many times, food is always great.
Incredible food and staff. Really went out of their way to make sure food and experience was top notch! Will definitely be going back!
The food was excellent and the staff was very friendly. The happy hour deals are also very good.
Great casual restaurant. Walked over after a day at the Denver Botanic Gardens, and was a perfect way to end the day. Wait staff was punctual, friendly and helpful. Entree selection was excellent and had a difficult time deciding on a meal. All looked so tempting! Both of our meals were OUTSTANDING! Don't let the casual neighborhood atmosphere fool you....they deliver top notch cuisine!
The patio is nice, but you are right on the busy street. Inside it gets loud, but I would say energetic is a better description.
The food was amazing!
This place is so beyond amazing. The gm and waitstaff make you feel like family, the food is such an amazing value and the quality of the food is .......top notch! Please help wonderful local owned gems like this through these tough times. I promise you ll be fed well !
Celebrate our anniversary here. Delicious food!
Awesome!! Great food!! Great drinks!! Great staff!!
First time here... loved it! Great food and friendly wait staff.
Amazing food and service! Cute atmosphere and great prices.
Fabulous. Everything we ordered was delicious. Noise was a little high just because we were outside, but it wasn't too bad.
Fun smaller restaurant. The food and wine are very good value. Good glass of wine for $9.00 and entree mid $20. The calamari was way over cooked which means tastes like rubber. The entrees were just ok. Probably need a new chef.
The sauce was a bit too spicy for us to enjoy our meal. I was surprised they made their tomato sauce with so much red pepper.
As always, wonderful food!
great service and great food. Would definitely recommend.
Delicious food and excellent service. I'd love to go again!
Great food, not a chain, sat outside. Have a wonderful evening
Fun place, good social distancing. Out of my favorite dinner, stroganoff, but my second choice was okay. Great friendly service !
Patio social distancing as good as was possible
