    Delicious, creatively prepared food, using fresh ingredients. The handmade pastas are incredible and so are the other entrees. I've only been here once, but my brother has been several times and says each meal he's had here has been great. They also serve a fantastic and slightly off beat selection of breads (I had a slice of lavendar sourdough, for example).

    This is our absolute favorite restaurant in town. Everything on the menu is delicious. The owner/chef was a finalist on Top Chef Masters in 2013.

    I took my friend who is a sommelier for the Four Seasons here, nervous that the food and drink wouldn't live up to his high standards. How wrong I was. He was even impressed by the wine list. Try the avocado citrus salad and the pan-roasted Petaluma chicken.

    Had a great dinner in historic Larimer Square. Great for a Saturday night out and before or after a show at the Denver center for Performing Arts. Tuna tartare, calamari, salmon (don't normally eat this out, but it was great and unusual) and chocolate dessert.

    Great place on historic Larimer Square. Go early after a show at the DCPA.
