Every dish was delicious, including soup, salad, pastas, and dessert. A true Italian feast! The wine list is extensive, but even better are the “close-out sale” bottles that they are rotating off the menu; they’re a great deal. Service was friendly and competent.

This place is kind of iconic in Grand Junction. Right on Main Street, the location and atmosphere are good. I understand they are no longer open for lunch, though, so the patio is not as useful. I've been here a few times over several years....More

We found the hosting and service staff to be excellent - friendly, helpful, and knowledgable. My wine (orvietto) was delicious, and perfectly paired with the Pasta D'Inverno. Hubby loved his Rosetto. Everything was great and we'd go back again on our next visit to G.J.More

Description
il Bistro Italiano opened in August 1998. Our focus is on bringing a combination of traditional Italian dishes together with some innovative ones created within the boundaries of modern Italian cuisine. The pastas, breads, sauces, and desserts are all made at the restaurant from fresh ingredients. Our wine list features a large selection of wines from Italy and Colorado, and whenever possible, we use local ingredients in our kitchen. There is always something going on at the Bistro, so look at the Events Section to learn of special wine nights, cooking classes or other featured events.
