Fresh fresh pasta! You can see them make it. I had the ragu and it was incredible. The shishito peppers are a must. It's finished with a brown butter that's delicious.

Il Bistro is always a favorite for family get-togethers, business or romantic dinners. Great professional European-style service, excellent food - especially the pasta with seafood - and good wines with recommendations from knowledgeable staff. Save room for amazing desserts!!

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.
