Not buying into this place... Go South Young Man, Go South – The service was not particularly bad but the food was entirely unspectacular. I have been there a couple of times, the pizza is poor, the pasta dish I tried was dry albeit large and the sauce was plain and flavorless. For pizza, go a few blocks south on Broadway to Rico's which is a hole in the wall but makes the absolute best pie in the Denver area! They, like Gennaro's, have been in business since Cinderella City was still a shopping mall in Englewood...
Best Pizza in Denver! – This place is incredible! Don't let the exterior fool you, once inside you will be amazed! It's got a funky retro bar along side an artsy, cozy little restaurant, pretty cool. I've been here several times and have enjoyed each and every one! The giant pizza has herbs baked into the crust and spicy sauce like nothing I've tasted before. I've enjoyed many of the entrees so far, they have all been fantastic not to mention about enough for 3 meals! Don't miss the House Specialty app Bruscheesee (not sure how to spell it, only how to eat it!), it's a special twist on bruschetta that you won't forget! As for staff, I have never had a bad experience here, they are always friendly and overly attentive. The prices in this place are rediculously reasonable to, I have to say this is one of my favorite eateries in this city!
Don't waste your time or money – Yuck! horrible servie and poor quality of food. If you enjoy your food tasting as if it came from a jar or undercooked this is the place for you! service was horrible, they were out of everything and the serve was slow and poor
Amazing! – Who are these people kidding! This place is amazing!!! What a gem!!! The service is impeccable, the staff is inviting and, most of all the food is absolutely 5 star ( and we've tried almost every thing on the menu!).
It seems like every time we go, there is some crazy fun event going on in the bar! I highly recommend this place to all my friends, and now to all of you. Enjoy!!!
bad – Horrible service...always understaffed. The owner was doing shots behind the bar when we needed refills. The food is always inconsistant. you might wait 60 min for a food order. The only reason we go back is that it's close and 1 time outta 10 you'll get a good pizza. boo
Really??!! – Seemed like a cool neighborhood place. When we arrived we were the only people in the restaurant & there were a couple of tables that had not been cleared, no big deal but they weren't cleared until 1 hour later. There was no staff around to seat us, we took 2 menus & seated ourselves, no big deal since this isn't a fancy place. The waitress came to take the order & we weren't ready. When we were ready she was nowhere to be found. We placed our order with the cook. Also the coffee I ordered was heated in the microwave. The food came & was surprised at the huge portions, I had the lasagna & my wife had a calzone. The lasagna, although cooked, was barely warm in the middle. While we were eating not once did the waitress come by the table, she was behind the counter with her back to us. When we were ready to leave we finally had to go to the counter to ask for the check. It was not even added up correctly plus she was going to charge me $2 for microwave coffee. I paid the bill & we left never to return again.
New crowd is younger, and funner...place looks nice. – The food is great, but the bar is even better. It's closer than downtown and it's always a blast. There's pinball, a jukebox, bowling game, and those bar electronic bar games, and late night bar food if the restaurant is closed. One of my favorites.
