We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
1.) Bar Dough (Denver Highland)
It's no secret that Bar Dough knows a thing or two about wood-fired pizza, but did you know that they also serve up a mean selection of homemade pastas, like this beautiful Bucatini dish?
2.) Wooden Table (Greenwood Village)
Located in Greenwood Village, the Wooden Table is a true state gem that has garnered up a number of accolades including Thrillist's "11 Best Italian Restaurants in Denver" and Westword's "Ten Best Neighborhood Restaurants in Denver."
3.) Wholly Cannoli Cafe (Aurora)
I know that this is supposed to be about pasta dishes, but... I'm going to break the rules and recommend you save room for one of Wholly Cannoli's famous namesakes for dessert!
4.) Spuntino (Denver Highland)
Another Highland hotspot for perfect pasta is that of Spuntino; a husband and wife-owned restaurant with the apt slogan of "Global Mind, Colorado Body, Italian Soul."
5.) Osteria Marco (Denver Central)
While the iconic restaurant doesn't serve many pasta dishes, it does serve some unforgettably authentic chicken, pan-seared scallops, and rabbit dishes (pictured).
6.) Basta (Boulder)
If you think traditional lasagna is good, wait until you try it wood fired with bolognese, béchamel, and domestic parmesan cheese from Boulder's premiere Italian destination!
7.) Sano’s Italian Kitchen (Westminster)
Don't let the low-key exterior fool you; Sano's serves surprisingly affordable, yet tasty Italian fare in a "cozy, classic atmosphere."
8.) Odyssey Italian Restaurant (Denver Central)
Let's just say that you don't receive 4.5-star reviews on Google, Open Table, and TripAdvisor for serving mediocre cuisine...
9.) Mama Sannino's (Wheat Ridge)
If you are looking for the perfect place to bring the kids for a special dinner, don't settle for just any old place; bring them to the family-friendly and child approved Mama Sannino's Italian Restaurant in Wheat Ridge!
10.) Carmine's on Penn (Denver Central)
Since 1994. Carmine's has been serving large portions of their famous Italian fare in an effort to encourage sharing amongst families! (Pictured is a sampling of their veal parm and meatballs with a homemade vodka sauce.)
11.) Luca (Denver Capitol Hill)
Cavatelli with shrimp and sausage... enough said!
