New York Italians: Ya gotta love ’em!

Thanks to the Giampetro family who settled here from the Big Apple, the University Hills neighborhood now has a good Italian pizza joint. It’s been awhile.

Joe Giampetro and his brother-in-law Steve Cook opened The Garlic Knot across the street from the U-Hills Plaza. Under the watchful eyes of the entire family—mama Mary Lou, wives and kids—New York style pizza, pasta and panache has arrived. This is the real deal. The East Coast Giampetros meet the Colorado Carbones.

And we are impressed. Everything we tried meets our expectations—the salad is crisp and fresh, the sauce (“gravy” in NY) is red, rich and peppery, the spaghetti al dente, the meatballs light, and the pies thin, big and bendable, true to the NY style. Even the “knots”— little bite-size twisted bread treats—are baked to crunchy perfection with a subtle taste of garlic.

UPDATE NOVEMBER 13, 2010 by WC
I stopped by The Garlic Knot, this night, November 13, 2010 for a slice to go. The Garlic Knot HIT IT OUT OF THE PARK. If you’re in Denver – breath a sigh of relief – If you’re not, get the envy wheels in motion.
