Located at 3030 E. 6th Ave., Barolo Grill
is a restaurant that "prides itself on serving authentic northern Italian food while maintaining a comfortable, elegant ambiance," according to its website.
In order to deliver the best experience possible, Owner and Wine Director Ryan Fletter and Executive Chef Darrel Truett take annual trips to Italy, sourcing from various wine producers to fill their 14,000-bottle wine cellar. Barolo Grill also sources its ingredients from local farms and artisans.

is relatively new, it's already making a name for itself. Opened by the same folks that brought us Frasca Food & Wine in Boulder, Tavernetta can be found in the Union Station neighborhood at 1889 16th St. And, similar to Barolo Grill, its main focus is delivering authentic Italian and genuine hospitality. While there are plenty of Italian options featured on its menu, Tavernetta also offers a wide selection of "French bubbles," according to its website.
