Took my family there just before my daughter moved to Denver. Eat in or dine outside - the food is wonderful. Homemade pasta! BYOB. What more can you ask for? Good service and priced right. Would definitely go there again.

Entrees run about $22-33. The real expense is in wine, it isn't a BYtO. But it is worth it. Tax is 8% and wine has its own tax.
