The menu here is traditional with a twist. The owner and chef seem dedicated to bringing patrons exciting menu choices with fresh ingredients. The gnocchi with ricotta, kalamata olives and basil is my favorite.

Barolo is a wonderful Italian restaurant with savory cuisine. We dined last evening and settled on the 'tasting menu.' Each and every course was delightful. The wait staff was superb and the ambience romantic.

We had a party of 8 in their private wine room.
Many apps were ordered including the cheese and meat tray, and pork cheeks. The pork was excellent. Cheese variety ok, however very small portions. The proscuitto tasted a bit rancid (fat portion).
Ordered the shimp, octopus, and lobster salad. Very good.
Primi, I ordered the king salmon and my wife ordered the gnocchi with castlemango cheese. The salmon portion was small (3 oz) with very little taste. The potato fries are not a good choice for this dish. All of the homemade pasta was excellent, including the pumpkin ravioli.
Our waiter started off great, but as the night progressed, got continually a bit more surly.
I would not return to eat at this establishment as there are much better options in and around Denver and Boulder.

Let me start this way. I know Italian food, was raised and grew up with it!! I tried this place , because friends kept telling me to go there for dinner.
Here is the menu I had with my comments!!
- Salad with duck, goat and toma cheese as an appetizer: I haven't even tasted the toma cheese!!!!
- First course "Risotto alla Milanese con Gamberetti": the worst risotto I ever had, basically no zafran, too much basil and onions, and over cooked rice. Even worst the rice was not an original Carnaroli Rice as listed in the menu, but a fake arborio rice instead.
- Main course "Maiale Arrosto ai Funghi, Spinaci, Formaggio e Cipolline": acceptable in taste and preparation, but nothing special.
- Dessert "Quartetto di Caramello": pretty good, but easy to prepare.
- Wine : White Chardonnay and Barbaresco... both very good.

In summary the food taste is way below average and not even close to real and good Italian food. I would not recommend this place to anyone, it is too expensive for the price they ask. Maybe for 30$/person including wine!!!!
The wine cart is impressive and good, but that is easy to do.

Cheers!!

We had a great server. Risotto and gnocchi were very good, strip steak tender but very salty. Great wine list. Food was good but not knock you sock off I need to go back soon great. Crowd seemed to be older and snooty. Owner was making the rounds but never bothered to talk to us.

Barolo is a very nice environment but way out of line for the quality. It is a great location and has nice ambiance, which is why they can get away with criminal prices. We took some dear friends there for dinner for their bi rthdays. What a disappointment. Trust me, I have dined at the some of the finest in the world from the UK, France, The Mesa Grill in NYC, Marie Elaine?s in Scottsdale and have never been so insulted as at the Barolo Grill. First the scallop appetizer (1 scallop) was average for $10.00. Then I had the blue marlin (over cooked on a bed of carrots). Come on, we spent over $500.00 for a dinner for four and I had to make something decent to eat when I got home. The wine list was a bit intimidating but we picked a nice Barolo at $100.00. I have tasted better wine at $24.00 a bottle. Please save your palette and go to Zengo, Vita, or The old neighborhood restaurant in Arvada for a better meal at a much better value.

Food was delicious and they always kept the water full which is seems to be rarer and rarer these days even at good restaurants. Our server was extremely knowledgeable about wines and unlike most didn't sound condescending about it all. Which is always a huge turn off. Just because I have never heard of some grape from Chile that is only grown in two vineyards doesn't make me an idiot. But I digress... the wine was good but I wish they would have had more moderately priced bottles on the menu. I think they had 5 bottles under $40 but 5 pages of bottles that were over $100. Also the server "recommended" that we order way, way more food than was necessary, and people in America have hard time understanding why they are fat. You can have a half order of a Insalate e Zuppa and a half order of Primi Piatti and that is plenty of food for any rational human being. My biggest complaint though and it may be a little thing to some but this really bothers me. The pasta I ordered was supposed to have heirloom tomatoes in it but it had those flavorless little grape tomatoes in it instead. I guess they can assume that 99% of their customers wouldn't notice, but for that reason alone I would be very reluctant to return.

This was a great place to eat. The wait staff was fantastic. I tried 2 wines that the waiter suggested and they were fantastic. I guess to sum up this place was Fantastic. You should go and check it out.

Wow!!! There is not a single thing I would change about this restaurant. That is rare for me to say. Usually there is something that missed. This restaurant is PERFECT!! Let's start as we get there. Complimentary valet parking...as we were trying to find a spot, we saw this and were excited. Little things, you know. We get in and we were missing one of our party (who didn't make it) and without missing a beat, we got sat at an appropriately sized table. This was just last night.

Now for the server, Andrew: he is getting his own paragraph. Anyone who wants to be a professional waiter, should sit at one of his tables and just observe. It was all about the little things, helping with wine selection, meal choices, everything. He understood the little nuances. When I questioned the bottle of wine, he even brought me a glass of something else to see if I liked it more. It turned out, the bottle was very young and just needed to open up. So, basically, the best waiter in town.

As for the food: Here is what was ordered: roasted tuna appetizer (absolutely phenominal-although Randolph's wraps are more to my tastes), the gnocchi with crab (absolutely amazing), NY Strip Steak (amazing by all accounts), Halibut (simply perfect) and my meal the seafood plate. This was the best meal, I have ever had in Denver. I cook a lot, and I eat out a lot. This was the BEST meal I have had in Denver.

So, the long and short of it, phenomenal.

This is the best Northern Italian restaurant in Denver. The restaurant is absolutely beautiful on the inside other then the somewhat ugly sound proofing on the ceiling. Our waiter was very knowledgeable of the menu and the wine list and recommended two excellent wines that paired very nicely with my meal. He and the chef were accommodating when another member of my party asked to have an entree heavily modified. The bread-sticks on the table are pretty good but a bit dry. They serve them with an olive dipping sauce that is quite good, if you like olives. The rosemary focaccia bread is very good but they only give you one small piece for each diner and you have to ask for butter and/or olive oil. The Antipasti Assortiti appetizer is phenomenal, with a wonderful assortment of three perfect tasting meats. For a main course, the braised duckling is rightfully their specialty. The portion is actually quite large and a good value at the price. The duck is excellently seasoned and braised with a highly complimentary olive based sauce. The accompanying small square roast potatoes are divine. The creme brulee is an excellent desert and is enough for between 2-4 people to share, making it a good value. I will definitely recommend this to anyone seeking the best high end dining experience in Denver.

I took my girlfriend out for a romantic dinner just because we hadn't been out in a while. We sat right in front of the fireplace at my request. Every course was delicious. The wine list was HUGE, and they had several experts on hand to answer any questions you had concerning the the list and helping to guide you in the right direction.

I would go there again, and would recommend this place to anyone who wants to have a nice evening out and isn't afraid to pay a little more for it.

This is one of the most amazing Italian restaurants I have ever been to. The wine list is extensive and has been extremely well reviewed. The owner is do devoted to Italian food and wine that the restaurant closes for a month every year and the entire staff goes to Italy.

We gathered here on Friday night around 6:30 for a meal together with friends. I must say, the environment is to die for, and the staff is very bright and knowledgeable. Wonderful service. We took our time, stretching dinner for almost 2 hours. The appetizers, including homemade breadsticks and a rosemary roll, were so phenemenal, I'd go again just for drinks and appetizers. The salads and first courses were also superb. The entrees tended to be a bit too salty and were outdone by the previous courses, but what an event. I wouldn't say that the main meal was to die for as far as tastes go, but twas saved by the whole experience of the courses beforehand.

This is one of my favorite places to go with friends - the food is consistently good, the atmosphere is fun and the service is impeccable. HOWEVER, you must make a reservation early in the week as it is highly popular!! The duck entree is to die for....

We first tried Barolo for wine and dessert a few years ago and were very happy. We just never made it back until it turned out to be an emergency stop last night after a bad experience at Luca. The staff were very friendly and accomodating, the food was fantastic (especially the quite interesting octopus terrine and their braised duckling), and the ambiance was nice, particularly the fact that even in a crowded restaurant, you don't necessarily feel on top of the other diners.

We'll be back to Barolo Grill and we'll be recommending it to our friends.

Just Googled Barolo and was amazed that the Google average was 3 and a hlaf stars. (Not so here on Citysearch). So I felt I had to comment. This is one of the finest restauants in Denver. My wife and I take out of town friends here all the time. We also dine there occasionaly, and sometimes stop without a reservation to have salads and appetizers at the bar (like many others do).

There have been a couple of times that the food was not superb, just fantastic, but I have NEVER had a bad experience here. Service is always exceptional. The wine - for Italian wines - cannot be matched in many restaurants in this country.

I just made a reservation for the wine room for my wife's 60th birthday (60 IS the new 40).

If you have never been, don't miss it. If you had a bad experience, it was one in a million.

Barolo is a Denver Landmark.

Barolo offers an exceptional dining experience for any occasion, but really can't be beat for a special romantic evening. The food is wonderful, the service outstanding, the wine list flawless, and the atmosphere unique, especially in this seemingly loud and raucous trend in so many establishments. Blair Taylor the owner is usually on hand and very approachable, in fact he'll probably check in with you first!

For a perfect romantic touch, ask for the table next to the fireplace...tale lussuria!

We just moved to Cherry Creek and noticed how busy it always was at Barolo's, so we thought we would try it. You definitely want to make a reservation, unless you go in after 9pm. We were seated promptly and had great service. Our waiter was extremely knowledgable about everything on the menu and every bottle of wine from their 20+ paged wine list. The menu is changed weekly and is set up with the typical Italian 3 course meal. The Gnocchi was delicious, they found the recipe in a small town in northern Italy. It is made with a cream cheese only found in that part of Italy. Could be the best Gnocchi I have had since I went to Italy 4 years ago. The staff of Barolo's actually travels to Italy every April for 2 weeks to discover new recipes and get the essence of the country. The atmosphere has a cute italian theme, we were seated in front of the fireplace which made for a very romantic evening. Go There!!! Check it out!!!! Ask for suggestions!!!!!

My fiance and I recently dined at Barolo Grill to celebrate my birthday. This was our first trip to the restaurant and we found that we were greated promptly upon arrival and seated immediately. Our waiter was very informative and had some very good recommendations. We recently returned from Italy, so we were anxious to compare our experiences. We were very impressed as they definitely tried to keep it as close to Italian dining as possible, with a slight deviation here and there. The only downfall to the dining experience is that at the booth we sat at, we felt very far apart and perhaps the table was a little too large and the atmosphere was not overly romatic, but rather peaceful. We will return.

My boyfriend and I went to Barolo Grill on Friday night--I had been there before (a long time ago) and he had never been. I remembered the place as romantic, with wonderful food and service, and I was not disappointed. Our server, Andrew, was attentive but not fussy, and although I didn't take his wine suggestion, was able to bring me exactly what I was looking for in a half bottle of Chardonnay. The mussels were perfect, and my date commented that he could've had a whole meal of the mushroom pasta. We were late to our 8pm reservation, but it was not a problem, and was handled extremely well. If you are looking for an absolutely smooth evening out, in a romantic room, THIS IS THE PLACE.

My wife and I just went to Barolo for dinner. We went on a Wednesday night, so we arrived at the time of our reservation and were seated immediately. We had a great waitress who made us feel like we were the only customers there. We did the four course dinner which was incredible. This is one of Denver's best restaurants and it really makes it nice that it isn't part of a nationwide chain. I've seen the wait on the weekends and it looks like a mess, so just avoid it and go on a week night. Once again, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Reading other reviews on citysearch about Barolo from a few years back, I can hardly believe people are writing about the same restaurant. I've been to Barolo on a few different occasions, my birthday, when family was in town, etc, and each time it has been superb. The waitstaff has been friendly, prompt and knowledgable, and the food amazing. The tasting menu (5 courses of food with wine) is a great way to go to sample lots of great things. I would absolutely recommend Barolo to anyone looking for a great meal with all the bells and whistles.

My wife and I celebrated our 4th anniversary here. Upon arriving here with our 6PM reservations we were treated like royalty. Good fortune smiled on us when we were give table #20 (fireside) without even asking! This was our second visit to Barolo's and the great times started as soon as we took our seats. Waiter was promt and VERY knowledgeable with wines. Our delicacies arrived and were spectacular in presentation and taste. A great balance of texture and flavor contrasts. My wine was paired wonderfully with the chef's selection of my food. Highly recommended for any occasion or even just if your hungry for AUTHENTIC Italian food with an upscale and comfortable ambiance.

The Chef and his staff create dishes as close to Piemonte as one can get highlighting fresh seasonal dishes featuring the truth of the food. Hot things are served hot and cold dishes are served cold. The Italian wine list is superb, and the wait staff is very knowledgeable regarding the food and wine menus with their passion for both enhanced by trips to Italy. The tasting menu with matching wines is one of the best values at any Denver restaurant.

The Italian wine list is superb, and the wait staff is very knowledgeable regarding the food and wine menus with their passion for both enhanced by trips to Italy. The tasting menu with matching wines is one of the best values at any Denver restaurant.

Pros: seasonal menu, superb chef, great wine list

Cons: closed two nights

.

These people LIVE Italian wine and food. Did you know they take the entire staff (including the valet) to Italy every year for 2 weeks? If you love Italy, this is as close as you're going to get in Denver!

Very expensive with a long wait. If you have a lot of time, carry a lot of cash and like a combination of "Casual" and "Fine Dinning" for an evening dinning experience, it's worth the long wait on the weekends for a table. There are however other choices for Italian Cuisine that offer better value.

Have seen reviews go both ways on Barolo.

As for us, we had a wonderful evening. Selected their fixed price dinner that included salad, appetizers, entree selections and desert. It also included a small glass of wine paired for the selection.

If you've ever had difficulty selecting a bottle of wine with different entrees and appetizers, etc. this is a great way to go. The food was wonderful as was the wine selections.

Ambience was fine...we were seated in one of the booths and that was certainly a preference. Observed a wide variety of patrons outfitted in everthing from shorts to dresses and jackets and kids in tow.(Colorado is still Colorado).

After all of the hoopla about Barolo's, I was extremely, EXTREMELY disappointed in the overall quality of food for the price, service, and ambiance. Customers are packed in like cows waiting to be slaughtered so the entire place was extremely noisy. Waitstaff took 20 minutes to refresh drink orders, food orders were slow to arrive, and friendliness was absent. Food was mediocre for the price - go to Pagliacci's for some REAL Italian in a REAL Italian atmosphere for local flare, and Maggianos or Buca de Beppo for the chain fare.

We arrived at 7:30 and the manager was very friendly and nice. However, the server was unusually slow. The server left our dinner plates in front of us fro 40 minutes while we watched him walk aound the restaurant. AND, he didn't even bother to give us bread. Needless to say, I was very disappointed in the service and feel that for the cost of the food, you should get not only a good meal, but a great server.

We went to Barolo Grill for my birthday and had the fixed price menu with wines. It was phenomenal. Although the wrong entree was brought out for me, they made up for this by serving me an extra glass of wine and serving us both some palate-cleansing sorbet while we were waiting. Overall the service, food and atmosphere were excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant for any special occasion.

We had an outstanding meal at Barolo last night with friends from the Denver Art Museum. The restaurant setting is nice - comfortable / casual but upscale, with great light from the wall of windows facing the street. We had a large table
