Like George and Martha Washington or Sid and Nancy, food and wine go well together. For $9, today's Groupon gets you $20 worth of pizzas, salads, and wines at Lala's Wine Bar & Pizzeria. Listed as one of 2008's Best New Restaurants in Denver by 5280, the Governor's Park eatery features pours by the glass or bottle, critically acclaimed flatbread pizzas, and a creative menu of pairable plates.

Lala's imported-olive plate, served with roasted roma tomato and homemade crackers ($8), or the daily meat and cheese plate (3 for $14 or $6 each) are sociable starters to a wine-enhanced feast. Select from dozens of sips offered by the half glass and glass ($3.25–$20) or reserve bottle ($26+)—all organized according to types, tastes, and ability to withstand being thrown out of a fifth-floor window. Flatbread pizzas, served crispy, are Lala's standout dish. With an extra-virgin-olive-oil-and-roasted-garlic base, the Il David ($9.75) layers a blend of three cheeses, roasted garlic, oven-dried tomatoes, and Peppadew peppers with a generous smattering of herb-grilled chicken. The menu also includes salads and paninis ($7.75–$10.50). For dessert, the basil frolino ($5.50) sandwiches homemade basil gelato and fresh strawberries between lemon-hazelnut shortbread. Lala's also serves brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., featuring blood orange mimosas and Bloody Marys ($6.50 each), and a variety of crespelles, frittatas, and brunchy pizzas, such as the pizza Durango with chorizo, scrambled eggs, poblanos, and fontina cheese.

Open until 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and until midnight on every other night, Lala's late hours support lengthy second dates and thoughtful lingering. Saddle up to the year-round patio and enjoy complimentary WiFi, or cozy up to the bar and spy on cooks shuttling pizzas from in and out of the oven and playing large-scale role-playing games. Housed in the former Sparrow space, Lala's presents a laid-back, upscale setting for social snacks and sips.

Reviews

5280 placed Lala's Wine Bar & Pizzeria on its list for Best New Restaurants 2008, and the Denver Westword featured and awarded it Best Wine Bar 2009:

  • Thin-crust pizzas are everywhere you look, but that hardly matters because Lala's bakes its to perfection. Combos are inventive, but our fave is the Il David, a white pizza with three cheeses, herbed grilled chicken, artichoke hearts, oven-dried tomatoes, and roasted garlic and red peppers. – Amanda M. Faison, 5280
  • I've stopped by Lala's looking for nothing but a glass of Rioja and a long, narrow plate of lomo, prosciutto and cheese, meaning to eat only a bite of this or that, and ended up devouring half a pizza — Denver's best flatbread pie, hands-down, the only nearly-cracker-crust that interests me in this town...It's been a long time since there's been a restaurant in this space that I could say I liked without reservation. Like I like Lala's. – Jason Sheehan, Denver Westword

Yelpers give Lala's Wine Bar & Pizzeria four stars, and 77% of Urbanspooners like it:

  • It's a classic wine bar atmosphere with fun, ever-changing menu of pizzas and wine. They have some of my favorite wines that I have been unable to find anywhere else in Denver. Flavorful pizzas that change regularly. Tasty and light appetizers. Lala's manages to be upscale without the price tag and attitude… – Jess Lawton Nelson, Urbanspoon
  • I could easily turn into an Oenophile hanging out at Lala's, and I have no reservations about doing just that. – Michael S., Yelp
  • …Michaelangelo himself would be hard-pressed to prepared [sic] such a masterpiece. This is the kind of pizza where you want to savory [sic] every slice, absorb every flavor, not scarf down and wash back for the next helping. – John H., Yelp
