We had the mushroom pizza and it was soooo good. I do think the place could use a good dusting on the pictures and light but I would return. We had the BBQ chicken pizza too, it was alright but that wasn't my selection anyway. There were a lot of other pizzas that looked good that I would like to try.

From Our Editors

Part of a large, Italian family, Jimmy Zamparelli grew up in a New Jersey, where he helped his grandmother craft ricotta ravioli, meatballs, and marinara sauce for family gatherings. His wife, Nancy, grew up in Houston, where her mother planned family meals around ingredients gathered at the local farmers market. The duo met at the Culinary Institute of America and the rest, as they say, is history.

Today, at Zamparelli's Italian Bistro, you'll find hints of both spouse's culinary roots in the cuisine, where recipes are often inspired by Jimmy's grandmother, but prepared using fresh, local ingredients,. Brick-oven pizzas are the house specialty—not to mention a favorite of Every Day with Rachel Ray magazine—and sprinkled with everything from clams and creamy garlic sauce to caramelized onion, gorgonzola, and smoked bacon. Elsewhere in the open kitchen, cooks pile house-made meatballs into sandwiches, layer meat sauce and mozzarella into gluten-free lasagnas, and toss roasted beets with shaved fennel, goat cheese, candied walnuts, and baby greens, which are surprisingly mature for their age. Wines by the glass and local beers complement feasts, which best end with a helping of gluten-free chocolate mousse, insists the Denver Post.
