Fratelli Ristorante Italiano
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.comWe 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.

The Egg & I
If you're looking for cold food, forgetful waitresses, and a rude manager, this is the place for you! I went there with my son hoping for a nice breakfast. The server was friendly, but slow. Our food came out in about 10 minutes. My son's food was hot & steaming, but mine was cold. The waitress was nice about it and had another one made. While I was waiting, I decided to pour some more coffee from the carafe. There was only enough coffee in there for 1/4 cup. Again, I called the waitress over and she said she was sorry she had forgotten to tell me they had to brew more. So why bring out an empty carafe? The remade food came out hot, but by the time it did my son was already done eating. The waitress brought a new carafe of coffee, but it was not the same kind that I had ordered originally. When I went to pay I asked for a discount on the food that was brought out cold. After waiting 7 minutes, the manager came out & said he would take a few dollars off, but really didn't understand how the food could be cold. He actually implied that I was lying about it. I told him I didn't know as I was not the one who had cooked it. He took a whopping 4 dollars off the total. My son had wanted to try that restaurant for a while, and was really looking forward to it. While the food itself tasted good, the rest of the experience was so poor I will not be returning there ever again.

Black Bear Diner
My sister and I have doctors in CO Springs. We were so thrilled to have found Black Bear Rest. We ate there every time we went to Springs. We began taking our families and friends. The food was great and the staff so friendly and nice. Then my sister became quite ill and we weren't able to go for awhile. Just today we got to eat there. After we ate and were about to pay the bill, my sister became ill, she could not make it to the rest room. The staff brought her a bucket and she tried to do this very discreately. Then the manager came over and was insensed and rude, can she go to the restroom. We said sorry no, but she want off saying very rudely I'll get your check for you. I did complain to the waitress saying how rude she wAS and she didn't know the story. All the other staff were kind and caring. With a manager like this it won't be long before you have no business which is a real shame. I know our families and friends will never eat there again. There are lots of other nice places in CO Springs.

Paravicini's Italian Bistro
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!!

The Hub Car Wash & Diner
Was looking for a mini detail for my truck and lunch. Had a great lunch while waiting for my truck to be cleaned and detailed. Extremely happy with the price, food and job that was done. Truck looks like new inside and out and I walked out full as well.

Zio's Italian Kitchen
Nice friendly place with good Italian food. It's not Biaggi's, but it does not try to be. The very nice young lady waiting on us did not mind going to the kitchen to get an answer to a question that I had that she did not know. We will go there again.

The Airplane Restaurant
overpriced, food was cold. We sat in the airplane and the sun reflecting off of the wing blinded me so we had to move. Service was ok, kind of slow for no one being there but one other couple. Probably will not go again.
