New favorite restaurant in downtown Denver. Absolutely fantastic, from the greeting at the door through scrumptious dessert and wonderful coffee. Maggie artfully guided us and was terrific 😀. Everything was seriously good - one standout was the bucatini with omg scallops... To kill or die for!! We came twice in as many days to this beautiful restaurant, and cannot wait... More

The wait staff was absolutely amazing and I can't say enough nice things about the host. Our reservation got lost, but everyone we encountered was incredibly apologetic and accommodating. No harm, no foul. Food was incredible and they have a separate gluten-free menu. Would go back for dinner (read "drinks") in a heartbeat.

If you want the best brussels sprouts this side of the Mississippi don't miss Panzano. Happy Hour is beyond fried food with booze. We are never dissappointed.

The menu was a little limited. Two out of six at the table tried the tasting menu and the chef was nice enough to have an amuse-bouche brought to all the others during the first course and then had sorbet (the best part of the tasting menu) for everyone. The tasting menu the night we went was ok. The first... More

Stopped in for a snack before heading to our hotel. They had an excellent variety of picks on the happy hour menu. We enjoyed local beer and had calamari and coconut shrimp. All excellent choices. Our server was great and attentive. Also great place to people watch being on the mall.

Before departing for the airport after a weekend board retreat, we popped in to attest firsthand why this Monaco Italian restaurant is award winning. We were not disappointed. Loved the margherita pizza, loved the chopped raw and roasted vegetables salad on the heels of bread dipped in a tapanade that should be bottled for take home. Chad may not have... More

Ate here on the recommendation of the concierge at the Magnolia hotel. I was pleasantly surprised to find a risotto with a wonderful blend of vegetables. It was very creamy and had a nice balance of sweet and bitter with the addition of wilted radicchio. As with most restaurants the dish was under seasoned but easily fixed with good ol... More

Panzano is always good, and today's lunch was no exception. We started with a squash soup that was a bit too sweet for our taste. My wife's next was a really good pizza; thin crust, fresh toppings. I had a vegetarian farro-based dish that was superb. Good selection of wines by the glass. The space is handsome. The service was... More
