When the owner says "Don't eat here" and he repeats it TWO MORE TIMES, how welcome would you feel? I've eaten here perhaps one HUNDRED times. I just had the most inattentive service there I've ever had, and I made the unforgivable mistake of sharing...More

My daughter, her boyfriend and I visited the Cherry Tomato on Memorial Day Sunday and found them to be very busy; yet we were seated within about ten minutes (the owner's daughter greeted us as the front door and, when I asked about business, she...More

Best Italian we’ve had in Denver. The pasta felese and carbonara were simply outstanding. If you’re looking for good Italian and willing to pay a slightly more expensive rate, this is the place for you.

Love eating at this restaurant. Every time I pass through Denver a stop here is a must. Always great service and amazing Italian food. If I lived in the neighborhood I would be a regular. Don't miss this hidden gem!

There are so many Italian restaurants in the Denver area and I'm always surprised that the Cherry Tomato is ranked so poorly compared to some other places however this is simply based on the fact that the number of reviews is so small. Perhaps nobody...More

Well, it's authentic, unpretentious, and affordable so I'm sure some out of state developer is scheming to tear it down and put up ugly condos as we speak. It's an old school menu, so no pork belly but they do have GF pasta which is...More

No, it does not, however, the cocktails are always reasonably priced and well made, and the wine list is good with moderate prices. You won't be disappointed.
