Overall great! Tables are too close together for an intimate dining experience.
The food and Serv here are top notch! I always get the lasagna and fresh mozzarella and my husband gets the New York strip. This is basically the only place we eat at these days!
Food quality was excellent, we prepared, good presentation. It took a while to get our food though.
Food was absolutely fabulous! Everything we ate exceeded expectations.
The food was mediocre for the price. I would’ve expected more from them. The ambiance was quite cute...just felt like it should’ve been much higher quality.
Way too noisy. Food was OK but overpriced.
We enjoyed everything about our meal however the service is what stood out as exceptional. Michelle was professional and friendly, knowledgeable about both the food and wines. Highly recommended.
The food was very good, all meals great, calamari overcooked, service very lethargic and not real attentive. asked for bread, asked for parmigiana, asked for the things that should have come by a proactive server, we did the asking...
Our waiter never refilled our drinks nor offered to. We were a younger couple there for a date night and all our waiter cared about was his older customers, who he assumed would tip better. They were out of what I originally ordered and the service was very poor for the price you pay.
Pasta sauce tasted like it was out of a can. Steak was expensive but not tender or juicy. Fried calamari had a strange breading in it.
Had a nice dinner; tenderloin and other entree very good; service excellent; antipasto especially good; highly recommend
It would have been great but they lost our order. Told me food was coming but everyone around us was getting their food but we didn’t. We even had to ask for bread after waiting a half hour. We flagged down the manager because couldn’t get our waiter. The manager found the error (was not our waiter’s fault). Got our order prioritized and covered the bill. The waiter did come by after we talked to the manager realizing we didn’t even have our appetizer yet and was ready to escalate the issue. He was not very attentive initially but definitely stepped up after he realized. The food was all very good. From the looks we were the only ones that had the issue so I believe it was a fluke. Would definitely go back. They definitely took ownership of the mistake and made it right. No one is perfect, it is how you handle it that makes the difference and they did very well there.
Good food, great service and ambiance. Rare Italian also has a great Happy Hour.
Great Italian pasta and inspired dishes. Wonderful wine list and half off bottles Sunday, can't beat it!
The service and food were exceptionally good. The only negative for us was the noise level, but that is a condition we have found at most restaurants in Fort Collins and elsewhere. We loved the 50% off bottles of wine and will make a point of returning to the restaurant on a Sunday.
Excellent food! Can’t wait to go back! Quattro pizzeta was so good.
"I love the attention to detail and authenticity of service. The environment is very classy without being pretentious , and the food is always fabulous.
Food was good. Though expensive for portion size. We ordered the risotto without the Pancetta because my daughter is vegetarian, it came with the Pancetta. The server was indifferent about it. Luckily, I had ordered something without meat as well so we could trade
We love going to Rare. Love the feel of the restaurant our service every time has been impeccable. Wine choices great, steaks great, other dishes can be so, so sometimes. Ragu and Pasta, always delicious as well as charcuterie and salami platters. Rare is always a stop when we visit.
Requested a table for two in the rear. Ended up by the waiters station by the front side door. Ordered a glass of cab, a substitute was brought without my knowledge. Sent it back and got something else. Waiter forgot about us.
Apathetic waiters everywhere. Food is average but prices are high.
This was our second time at RARE. The first time seemed like the food and service was better. But it was still good, just not 5-star like I recalled it. Maybe an off night.
Great food. Loved it!
Some of the best Italian food we’ve had in a long time. Similar quality to food in Italy which is hard to find in the United States. Who would have thought we found it in Ft Collins!!
The food is consistently very good. Since opening their service has been very erratic, occasionally consistent with the quality of the food, but generally very slow.
My lady and I came here for our anniversary and had a wonderful experience. We both shared the truffle fries as a side dish. For entree’s, she had pasta and I had the trout! Great atmosphere, good food for a surprisingly low price.
Great food and enjoyed sitting outside. Great wine special on Sundays.
One hr to wait for food
2 steaks were 5*
Poor chop was blood rare, sent back
Kitchen took 15 mins to redo, by that time, waiter never showed up to assist
The steak eaters were done so mgr comped the chop to take home
MUCH better choices witin 2 blocks of Rare ITalian
Food is great every time we go. Service can be spotty depending on who your server is.
The food was delicious. The sodas were flat.
Always a treat to dine at Rare! Food and service always exceptional! Our favorite FoCo spot!
Lots of attention from wait staff, great food and recommendations and love the half off bottle of wine! Delicious food!!
Highly recommend Rare Italian to anyone who loves quality food. Service is always great and the atmosphere is pleasant. Please know that reservations are best if you are truly wanting an experience to remember!
Fabulous spot for a lovely meal - get the anti pasta, it’s a wonderful way to start the evening
Food was fantastic. Great looking place. A little loud had to try hard to hear across the table.
We were there during happy hour and 2ith the special prices during happy hour the value was Great!
We were so happy to see Sherry back at Rare, she is our favorite waitress!
I strongly suggest the risotto!!! One of the best dishes I had while in Fort Collins. Everything was amazing!!!!
Hostess and manager were rude. Server told us the kitchen didn’t know what they were doing. Server forgot to put in the order for our salads. We were pretty much ignored by the staff. The restaurant was extremely loud and the manager rolled his eyes at us when we requested to sit in a quieter area outside. The food was actually good but it couldn’t make up for the abysmal service.
Our wait person, Dan, was very good. He paid attention to detail and answered all our questions and made great suggestions. Very professional. Made our visit very enjoyable.
