Italian Restaurants in Arapaho

At Aboca's Italian Grill, the cuisine is as artfully prepared as the paintings on the wall and the flower arrangements on the tables. The cylindrical noodles of the baked penne come blanketed with a square of mozzarella cheese, while the pasta primavera bursts with morsels of color: forest green broccoli, bright yellow squash, and flame-red tomatoes. For drinks, the restaurant invites its patrons to bring their own wine, even offering to uncork bottles for a small fee so diners can leave their jackhammers at home.

The warm pumpkin-colored walls of Art Nails & Hair set a relaxing tone as clientele walk in, seeking a haven away from stress and relaxing in styling chairs or leather pedicure stations. Mirrors face each of the salon’s styling stations, allowing guests to watch as new ’dos unfold under cut, coloring, and perm treatments. The salon’s spa counterpart reworks appearances with skin-clearing facials, waxing treatments, and eyelash extensions that add drama to glances much like challenging a Tony Award winner to a staring contest. The spa also offers a range of manicures and pedicures, which can be augmented by long-lasting Shellac polish, nail enhancements, and miniaturized nail art that adds individual style to digits.

With its weathered wooden bar, smattering of flat-screen televisions, and many tables and booths, Rocky's Bar & Grill exudes a thoroughly laid-back atmosphere where people can feel comfortable lingering over a drink with friends. The cooks embrace this same spirit as they prepare a menu of American and Tex-Mex finger foods as well as heartier meals. The selection includes shareable orders of cheese fries, nachos with chicken, and fried pickles, as well as burgers topped with everything from mushrooms and swiss cheese to bacon and jalapeño. Although the grill features two pool tables and four bouncy castles in the back room, it also keeps guests entertained by hosting special events throughout the week, such as poker nights, pub trivia, karaoke, and live bands.

Behind the counter at Top That! Pizza, a colorful collection of more than 30 toppings, 10 cheeses, and 8 sauces await each pizza-lover’s creativity. They first pick from three crusts, including honey wheat, then choose sauces such as Thai peanut and basil pesto to adorn their personal-sized pies. Lastly, they select from locally sourced toppings such as marinated ribeye, Polish sausage, and applewood bacon, as well as regional cheeses including asiago and gorgonzola, before their creation is baked to a golden crisp in just three minutes. Customers can then sit down to enjoy their customized pie at the restaurant, or take it home. It’s the concept of combining choice, quality, and speed come to fruition that Top That’s creators envisioned years ago. Today, locations stretch across Oklahoma, Texas, and Colorado, and menus make room for baked dishes such as chicken alfredo and meatball marinara.
