We discovered this place when it was Carbone’s in the mid 70’s. When it changed hands it went way down hill. Enter the Lechuga’s era. Lechuga’s brought back the service and food we so loved from Carbone’s. But the magic is gone. The pizza crust used to be fantastic and it is now just excellent. The toppings and sauce, just as good as the old days. Friendly service. It is still our favorite pizza restaurant. As we live miles away we get here only a few times a year so it’s always pizza and we never try anything else. O yes good cheese bread.

We have been eating here for a good dozen years. As we live miles away it is only a few times a year. We ordered calzones on our first visit and have mostly stuck with them. We tried pizza one time and found it very good but the square pizza at Lechuga's is our preference. Now back to the calzone. For our taste, the best we have found so far. Not quite as large as the old days and on occasion the calzone bread is a little flat. We never had a service issue worth mentioning. Whenever we are in the area, its Carl’s for lunch.
I often choose Panzano's for a special lunch meeting with clients and have never been disappointed. The menu changes according to the seasons, the service is fast and thoughtful, and the atmosphere is quiet enough to have a meaningful conversation without being too quiet. Their roasted brussel sprouts appetizer is to-die for, and I nearly always order their grilled eggplant and goat cheese panini and leave with leftovers. Although I've never been there for dinner, I imagine it'd make a nice date-night destination.
So impressed with this place! The interior is warm, creative, and welcoming. The food itself is tasty, well-made, authentic, and fresh. Mostly, though, I'm impressed with the smiling service from the whole staff, but specifically from Zack. He's well-presented, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, quick, happy, and overall professional. Management, if you're reading this, promote this young star quick before someone else (like me) hires him haha. Keep up the great work!
I've lived in North Denver all my life, even worked at Carl's for a while. They have the best sausage sandwiches around and if you like a Lil kick ask for U & H chili on top. Wish they would go back to Pepsi® instead of coke but I'll always love Carl's pizza... for those that are worried that it changed because of Carl's passing, John has been there since he was 16 and has been making everything for years... no worries same great taste!
I was hoping for a good hole in the wall place, but I got a mediocre every other type of place. The prices aren't bad, but the fact you get stale cold cheese pizza with a few toppings you wanted tossed on to be heated for a few minutes in an oven makes you want to stay clear. Perhaps if it were fresh or they cared about what was served it would be worth the return. For now, there are so many other places, better places.
The pizza was a bit greasy, but as close to NY style pizza I have found in Denver. It is thin and sloppy and super cheesy, which is how I like my pizza. If you are looking for a thick crust or hearty pizza this is not for you. The Anthony's on Wads in Arvada even has a kids play area with toys, tables, and a vcr with kid movies.They always have good lunch specials too.
I think this is pretty good pizza right in downtown Denver. We are always pretty happy with our choices every time we go. It is also the Best place for pizza at 2 am too! It is packed when the Market St. bars close, but well worth the wait and highly entertaining as well!
Having twice visited Italy I admit to being spoiled great to have a restaurant here in Denver serving authentic Italian food. While upstairs is casual, downstairs is more formal .
I have had wonderful experiences with Pizza and Grill's customer service and food. The food is always fast and fresh and in my opinion way better then certain pizza chains.
