Pantuso's has been in various locations in Grand Junction over the years, but no matter the location, the perfect recipes has traveled from one spot to another intact. This is an old school Italian "red sauce" eatery that seems to be a vanishing breed. The trends toward "upscale Italian" or "Tuscan" or "national-chain-quasi-Italian" are changing the Italian restaurant scene...sometimes for... More

We have eaten there twice with a group of 3-5 and the food was great. Portions were substantial, taste was superb. Had the Fruita Gamberetti, shrimp and sausage penne, 1/2 and 1/2 ,and chicken parma - all excellent. You need to know this restaurant was well in place prior to being associated with the Clarion.

Pantuso's has been a staple inn Grand Junction for many years and has been opened in several different locations with several different family members. Now the restaurant has a new owner who is a great chef, and the fool has become excellent again. I ordered one of the two daily specials, Duck and Ricotta cheese Canelloni, and it was delicious....

Enjoyed appetizer of sausage and peppers. Lightly grilled Cesar salad was terrific. Loved calamari special dinner. Service was a bit slow, but we were there Thanksgiving eve. Local Two Rivers red bend wine was very good.

We stayed the Clarion an this restaurant was connected to the hotel. We had pizza an it was fabulous. The staff was wonderful. The only thing we didn't know til later was they could make the pizza with a thinner crust, which is what we like.

I don't eat here often, but every time I do, I get something different and wonderful. Pantuso's has been here ever since I moved to Grand Junction two decades ago and my wife and I have enjoyed it from day one. It's an excellent dining experience.
