Great place for wine and desert, but NOT for a date!
I am new to Denver, and was looking for a place to have a first date. One of my girlfriends suggested Cucina Colore, and I decided to take a chance on it. Now, while it seems like a very enjoyable place to dine, it is not the right place for a date.
Firstly, while the ambience is nice, it is VERY loud inside. Secondly, the tables are very close together, and it feels impersonal and akward when trying to hold 'romantic' conversation. Thirdly (and on a more silly note), there are just too many women on the staff, and very attractive women at that! From the haunting hostess to our vivaciously gorgeous waitress, my date (and even myself) could not help but have wandering eyes! The service was good though, and we were warmly taken care of. The wine list was also moderatly priced (a rare find these days), and the dessert (a delvilshly good peach bread pudding) was fun to share.
Cucina Colore is much better suited for a girls night-out where noise and a crowd won't be a problem, or possibly for lunch (where I am assuming it is less crowded).
