My daughter and I are here for a gymnastics meet and she picked Sweet Basilico. We both had pasta. Everything tasted super fresh and the service was great!

We walked in 30 minutes before closing. We were met by the owner. He was so sweet! We had a fabulous meal! The staff was very nice and the food was delicious! Loved everything about this place.

This place is amazing. What a find. Food was incredible and the service was even better. Our waitress was so attentive to our needs. We were there to celebrate our 33rd anniversary and when she found out she brought out this to die for chocolate cheese cake. It's not a cheap place to eat but it is worth every penny.

We had a delightful dinner with friends there. It has been a while since we have eaten there, but we found the food to be as good as ever, everyone was happy with their dinner, and our server was wonderful. It is definitely a favorite of ours when in Estes.

My husband and I visited for the Valentine's Day special and had a wonderful time! First of all, our server, Lora, was excellent - just the right amount of attention and she was very helpful. We started with the mozzarella sticks and homemade marinara sauce -- served piping hot and really yummy. A fresh crisp salad with homemade Ranch dressing... More

As we were still walking in the door the hostess said 'just 2?' (Vs. waiting until we were both actually in the door and then saying 'for 2'?), as she walked 10 steps ahead of us and literally dropped the menu's on the table and walked away as we got to the table (this was an early dinner hour, with...

We had great food but the waitress seemed to just put in her time. It could have been an off night for her. We each had a seafood pasta and each one had a good amount of seafood and tasted great. My salad wasn't too good though. It was a bit watery and tasteless.

We always come here every time we are in Estes. The ambiance is nothing fancy, but the food and service is great. We have met the owner/chef a few times and you can tell he puts his heart into the cooking. As a side note, my parents live in Estes Park and when my father was very ill, they sent... More

We've been coming to Estes for years and ran across this restaurant. Called ahead and got seated right away. Its nothing fancy, but cozy and comfortable. Staff was friendly, food was great and prices reasonable. We will definitely be back!
