The restaurant's relatively recent expansion and decor updating have created an attractive atmosphere and jovial bar and good wine selection. The drinks are generous and delicious. However, despite its claim to offer Italian cuisine, each such dish seems to miss the mark. The restaurant badly needs an offering of simple cuisine of the "neighborhood Italian" pasta variety to finish out... More

Great atmosphere and we had a wonderful dinner together with a large group that was very raucous. The food was solid but didn't blow me way. Italian in Denver does not seem to be particularly inspired based on my recent experience with a few places.

Great location in Cherry Creek. Design is clean and bright, modern. Menu is predictable light Italian. Nice service. Perfect for a quick lunch if you are in the area. Will definitely return for the Brussel sprouts alone!

We stopped in here for lunch after shopping in Cherry Creek and found just what we wanted -- the delicious Pollo e Orzo salad for me and a great pizza for my husband. We had a pleasant meal at the expansive white stone bar, assisted by a bartender who had a very pleasant manner. The food was good, refills were... More

When you're in the mood for Italian there are many places you can go to but one of those on top of your list should be Cucina Colore! A nice lunch on the patio (or inside) or a dinner, you can't loose either way. Highly recommend it!

Great location in Cherry Creek, we dined outside, and we had a great server (Michael) but the food was just average. Granted, we didn't order a lot of food but the food we did order was prepared properly but nothing fancy. We walked away unimpressed, however, we'd go back again with more of an appetite and to try more on... More

I went to Cucina Colore on .sunday evening with my friends who had been there two weeks previously and raved about it. They couldn't wait to eat another "fabulous" pizza, We first ordered a beer and a chocolate martini. The wait person got so involved in the martini that he forgot about the beer, but finally brought it as well,... More

Went to CC on a recommendation from a friend. While there was nothing wrong with our meal, it just wasn't very memorable or outstanding in any way. Given the location in Cherry Creek, I am sure that there are better Italian dining options in the area. Two glasses of wine, a cup of soup, two entrees came out to just... More

Just got back from Italy-last month and was looking for authentic Italian Margarita pizza. This place has it. Simple but all so tasty.

We love this restaurant! The food is consistently really good, the wait staff is friendly and professional, and we can sit outside on nice days. It is right in the heart of Cherry Creek Shopping, so it is super convenient. Try the grilled salmon and peach bread pudding ! OMG! You will not be disappointed! Enjoy!
