I have lived here my entire life, in Lakewood. Our "best Italian" has always been Cafe Jordano, which has always been the best in my opinion. My husband said Cherry Tomato was better, so we went and unfortunately, he was correct. I have been here 8 times now, and I can honestly say that I have never had such good... More

My third trip here and all 3 visits were great. Our server was helpful and attentive without hovering. My ravioli was terrific and sauces are always great. Several red sauce choices ranging from tame to spicy. A very nice, quaint place with ambiance. Often full so might want to call ahead!

This is a popular place. We visited on a Sunday evening and every table was taken. There were couples, larger adult groups and families with young children. A tub of crayolas on the table indicates that families are welcome. The wine list here is quite extensive and they have some good wines, however the prices, I thought, were quite expensive.... More

The $3.99 a slice 4 layer chocolate cake from Safeway is much more flavorful than the $6.95 chocolate cake served here. However, I know from past experience that the entrees are great.

Extensive menu, delicious food, and solid wine list. This is where the locals eat, and for good reason. It's off the beaten track, but that's a good thing, and means it's rarely crowded enough to require much of a wait. Great for kids, too, with paper tablecloths they can color on. This is one of our go-tos. The only thing... More

Very good Italian in a little old building in Denver. The menu had great options and everyone in my group of 4 loved their meal. Also great desserts. The kitchen is open to the dining room so it's neat to see them preparing your meal. We found parking right across the street. Menu items very reasonably priced.

We really like the cherry tomato, live close by and it is a real gem. Treated well by the friendly staff, great prices and flavorful pasta - I love the seafood fettuccine - has a little kick and very fresh. Tried a few deserts as a family and all amazing - will be back for sure. Saw some negative reviews... More

We were staying at an Airbnb nearby and were starving when we were told about Cherry Tomato. We walked in and it felt like a perfect neighborhood, cozy restaurant. Our waitress was very sweet and kind and the food was amazing! It felt like a home cooked meal. The Puttanesca was just amazing as well as the Cherry Tomato salad... More

There's something magical about the vibe of a neighborhood restaurant. Cherry Tomato is a hidden gem nestled quietly in Park Hill and the food is fresh and simple and delicious. We were part of a birthday gathering of eight and loved Cherry Tomato. The family I was with has lived in the Park Hill neighborhood for 51 years. Our ages... More

Been back to eat here a few times when in Denver. Chef Tommy always cooks to perfection The pasta is always perfect and his lasagna is excellent. I feel like I'm home in Brooklyn at my favorite Italian restaurant. This is by far my favorite place to eat in Denver. The staff always does an amazing job of taking care... More
