The "specials" are always worth considering. The wine list is interesting and offers a good variety of choices. The service is friendly and... More

While visiting the Grand Junction area, we opted to "go into town" for a dinner. GJ has become somewhat of a metropolitan canter of Colorado's western slope...and we were pleasantly surprised by the extensive, traffic controlled downtown, abustle with folks shopping, eating (in and out) and enjoying entertainment. The Il Bistro Italiano, in the center of things, puts out decent... More

Reservations recommended, although we only had a 1/2 hour wait for a table on a Wednesday evening. Very yummy and the portions are huge. Three of us shared 2 entrees and a salad and were too full for dessert! We will definitely save room next time for dessert - those looked very yummy too!

Our waiter was excellent, and the food was good too. I had the Cabrese Pizza which was amazing. Salads were very good as well.

We were beat from a long drive but were craving a great supper. Well this place certainly delivered on that. We got to eat outside and had a great waiter, but he would bring things late. I ordered a Kettle One on the rocks with OLIVES. Got the K1, no olives. Asked him immediately for the olives, they came after... More

il Bistro Italiano opened in August 1998. Our focus is on bringing a combination of traditional Italian dishes together with some innovative ones created within the boundaries of modern Italian cuisine. The pastas, breads, sauces, and desserts are all made at the restaurant from fresh ingredients. Our wine list features a large selection of wines from Italy and Colorado, and whenever possible, we use local ingredients in our kitchen. There is always something going on at the Bistro, so look at the Events Section to learn of special wine nights, cooking classes or other featured events.
