I was driving down Tennyson the other day and saw sidewalk tables and thought I saw a big white sign that read “Paris,” and underneath the sign, “Pizzeria.” I chortled and thought to myself: the French have joined in the *Denver Pizza Wars. Of course, the sign read: Parisi – the last i was obscured. Continue reading

The cheery atmosphere is perfect for an Italian sweet and cafe latte.

In Italy, Italians eat sweets every day: a brioche or biscotti with their cappuccino for breakfast and maybe an almond cookie with cheese and fruit following lunch or dinner. Cookies are just the light touch of sweet Italians like at almost any hour. Continue reading

3 Sons Italian Food Restaurant In Arvada

3 Sons had been serving fine Italian food on W 44th Ave in Denver for years. Susan and Michael Scarafiotti purchased 3 Sons in March of 2004. For over a year, the new owners have been serving fine Italian food at a new location in Arvada. The new 3 Sons Italian Restaurant and Bar opened at 14805 West 64th Avenue in Arvada, Colorado, in June 2009. And it’s a good thing. Not that they moved, but everything is good: the location, the bar, the dining room, the food, the happy-hours, the staff, and the spotless head(s). Continue reading

When Denver’s leading developer collaborates with the city’s top food man, you know they’ll do something amazing. That’s precisely what happened when Denver Tech Center Developer John Madden asked Larry DiPasquale, CEO and managing partner of Epicurean Culinary Group, to operate a restaurant and catering services for his newest project Palazzo Verdi in Greenwood Village.  

Madden built the office building named for Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi, and DePasquale opened a wonderfully warm Italian bistro named for, well, eating and drinking. Continue reading

When my Neopolitan father tasted genuine Italian food in Denver, he would make a little hand gesture as though tweaking his moustache that meant this is authentic! He would have done it at Marco’s where it’s all about authenticity.   From two dome ovens hand-made of volcanic stone from Sorrento to the flour, meats and cheeses imported from Italy, Marco’s Pizza is Neapolitan through and through, and owner Mark Dym has the documents to prove it. On the wall hangs the official certificate from L’Associazione Vera Pizza Napoletana with Marco’s world ranking of 285 and another from Associazione Pizzaiuoli Napoletani recognizing Dym’s hard work as a pizzaiuolo (pizza maker) “in the service of quality.” Continue reading
