Fratelli Ristorante Italiano downtown Colorado Springs. This Colorado Springs independently owned restaurant is a real gem and has quickly become our very favorite Italian. The owner, Kym, is there to welcome you almost every night and she takes pride in making sure that all of her guests are welcomed and delighted. Chef Armando has been there for 18 years and was classicly trained in Naples. All of the dishes are fresh and made from scratch with Armando’s fabulous sauces. Live musicians and local artists are at Fratelli’s nearly every week. The atmosphere is clean and classy. If you are looking for a romantic evening or a classy place for a business meeting, this is it. They even offer an early bird special-you can download a coupon at www.FoodieClicks.com We started our meal with the “La Caprese”-Real Buffalo Mozzarella, Balsamic and basil. A perfect compliment to Chef Armando’s homemade white and wheat bread. The Mozzarella was soft and tender. Chef Armando surprised us with a crostini of smoked white fish. Each bite was tender and addictive, leaving us wanting more! We had to try the “Gnocchi Fatti in Casa” with the Pesto Pine Nut Creme. It is so silky delicious, the cream is light and compliments the potato dumplings perfectly. It paired well with a glass of crisp Riesling. It is truly the best gnocchi we have ever found, and we’ve had gnocchi throughout the world, including in Italy. If you love gnocchi, you’ve got to try it. We also had a special of pork pounded thinly and breaded on a bed of pasta with a spicy red sauce. The meat was tender and cut with a fork, the sauce had just enough spice to impart flavor yet not overwhelm. The dish was perfectly balanced and perfectly delicious with a glass of red wine. The meal was complete with a homemade cannoli topped with chocolate, cream and berries. Yes, it was decadent, but oh so good. We truly enjoyed every bit of our time at Fratelli and highly recommend it.

My husband and I have eaten at Paravicini's numerous times and the food has always been delicious. We have taken many groups of people there and they have all loved it. The speciality dishes are unique and very, very tasty. They will accomodate just about anything you would like to adjust (different types of pasta, adding ingredients, substituting one item for another), It is a bit noisy at times if you are in the main dining room but the littke rooms are much better. Just request a table in one of those. I highly recommend reservations as it is generally packed. Absolutely will return again and again.
I love this place. It's not your everyday italian place. There's the huge open kitchen that you can see and hear the entire time you're there. It's very exciting to see the flames and hear the sounds as you sit and eat. Aside from the ambience the food is very good. I personally enjoy the stuffed chops. But they have traditional favorites as well. However, if you want my personal fave it's the Pasta Weesie (sp) Lovely fetuccine alfredo topped with lemon butter shrimp. SOOO GOOD! There is usually a wait in the early evening but after the initial rush I've never had to wait.
