DiCicco’s 6701 Tower Rd, Denver, Colorado, USA

DiCicco's foodMy husband and I had just arrived back in Denver. It is always good to be back in the mile high city. We were met at the airport by three close friends and there was no time like the present to go out to dinner and have a good old catch-up.

Our friends are local and they decided on DiCicco’s Italian Resturant near Denver International Airport. What a good choice! DiCicco’s has been Family owned and operated since 1956. They serve classic and contemporary Italian dishes of which many are handed down from generation to generation within the family.

DiCicco’s has traditionally decorated murals around the walls and a large screen showing scenes while relaxing music plays in the background. The serving staff are polite and attentive. If anything, slightly too attentive: two of the waiters had an argument in front of us about who was going to be our server. I did think that could have been better handled in private.Dicicco's inside 5

However, the food we ordered was excellent. The salads were fresh and the mains tasty and satisfying. We chose not to have alcohol: we were jet lagged and our friends were driving but we did check out the wine list and DiCicco’s seems to keep a good cellar. I had a vegetarian pasta as did one of our friends. My husband and another of our friends had a combination dish of spaghetti and meatballs, canneloni and ravioli and the last member of the group tucked into an egg plant (aubergine) parmasan.

Unfortunately none of us had room for a dessert because the cakes and puddings sounded fabulous. I was surprised that the bill was acceptably modest at just over $20.00 a head. DiCicco’s has easy access for those with mobility issues. I highly recommed this restaurant and will certainly visit here again.
