"We return every year on our visit to the Manitou Springs area to the Craftwood Inn. We are never disappointed in the food nor the service. Of course the setting is the part that we look forward to. The preparations are innovative and very good quality. My steak was "melt in your mouth" variety, with a great sauce. The other option was the wild boar plate that had a flavorful sausage and tender meat on the bone. They are very knowlegable with dietary needs and do not delete the flavorful part of the preparations. We will return again next year."

Located in a historic 1895 building this casual Italian eatery brings a bit of "little Italy" to Colorado Springs. We offer many classic Italian dishes such as lasagna, veal marsala and Tutto di Mare as well as Chef Franco’s original fare.

"We went to Paravicinis due to online reviews, as we were visitors to Colorado Springs. We were not disappointed. The food was well prepared, flavors wonderful and great presentation. They were so busy in the kitchen, yet we didn't feel like they slighted the quality. Evidently they are used to this most of the time. The options were vast as the menu included preparations for pasta, orzo and polenta with varied sauces. Also there were full meat dishes.
They are knowledgable in dietary needs also - a big plus for Italian restaurants. My salmon orzo was "to die for", as it was dairy free and gluten free with a lot of flavor.. .We are tempted to drive from Denver to Colo. Spgs. just to dine here, in the future.

Visit our Mediterranean Bistro featuring cuisine from Italy, France and Spain by Chef and Owner Maurice Couturier and Piano Bar with Ricardo nightly. Visit our beautiful patio in Golden CO overlooking Clear Creek. We are open 7 days a week for Lunch and Dinner. Happy Hour Specials and Tapas are available every afternoon. Facilities for Private Parties are available, so are our extensive wine list and exclusive dishes. You will not believe it until you try it! Dining in Grappa deserves a trip!

"We returned to Golden's nicest dining experience. We weren't sure if the same quality would be found, since the opening of the second Grappas in Belmar. But it is still great food and service. The only glitch was my dietary needs of gluten and dairy free. I experienced the results of dairy hidden in the food. So the remainder of the evening was unpleasant at our play because I had no idea to take my remedy pill. It doesn't work as well when taken at that late stage. But I've eatern there before and not had that problem. I had the shrimp brochette. But the others in my party had pasta, veal and lamb dishes and enjoyed them."

"We returned to Maggianos due to a coupon, but wanted to also enjoy the Christmas atmosphere and night downtown. They are always so good to accommodate special allergies and still have an enjoyable meal. We can always count on the consistency of this restaurant.. The amount of food is amazing, but enjoy our take home food. The servers are always very professional and attentive."
