Absolutely the best authentic Italian food!! Made a reservation from YP half an hour before going for the first time. We were very impressed with getting seated immediately upon entering. Best bruschetta ever and the veal piccata was to die for. The service and atmosphere were wonderful. We will definitely be back!!! Thank you for turning my fiancé into an Italian food lover!!
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.

April 29, 2009 - Doesn't like it - I had a BAD experience at Paravicini's last summer. My family and I walked in to get dinner one night and we were approached by the owner(guy on TV) , and his mouth was full of food and crumbs on his face, and he was very arrogant( There were plenty of tables empty but when we said we need a table for 3, he said it would be an hour wait. I said why when there are empty tables and he said they were for reservations. So I said is there anything outside and he grumbled NO and nodded his head toward the small little bar that was full of papers and such and kind of smirked and blew us off. After being born and raised in Old Colorado City (Parents here for 60 years) and have been a good customer there over the years, we were completely turned off by his arrogant attitude. We did not matter to him AT ALL! So we decided to never go back especially because of that and also, when you get to-go orders of spaghetti, you are not allowed to have fresh parmesan cheese with your order. You pay the same price for the meal if you are sitting there or taking it to-go??? Hopefully in this economy, the owners of local restaurants will treat each customer with respect because word of mouth goes a long way , especially when you know half the town.
