Panzano – Denver, CO


I will always flock to a restaurant that claims house-made pasta on their menu.  Panzano holds up to the menu claims and is the best italian restaurant in Denver.  The atmosphere is energetic, some tables with a view of the kitchen or wood-fired oven, but the food coming out of that kitchen is enough to shut most people up.  A word of advise…come hungry!  This was not my first time at Panzano, and I admit I was disappointed when I saw a change to the menu considering that my favorite appetizer of zeppole and duck liver mousse was no longer available.  I was not left disappointed for long when I started with the Crescenza flatbread with prosciutto.  For an entree, the carbonara with pancetta is amazing and finishing off with a tiramisu is the perfect way to make sure you are sufficiently ready to roll out the door and head home to bed.
