Pizzicato Denver

Pizzicato Gourmet Pizza
The corner of 13th and Pennsylvania is the new location of the first Colorado outpost of Oregon-based Pizzicato. After Chipotle exited the Penn Garage building, we were left wondering what would happen to this great spot; we couldn't be happier!

They make a beautiful, hand-tossed, thin crust pizza. Brushed with olive oil and garlic, these pies are just right. Their selection of high-quality toppings are creative, to say the least. For the vegetarians, your choices are quite amazing. Case-in-point, the "Wild Mushroom": Shitake, Portobello, Oyster, Crimini, other seasonal mushrooms, Chevre, roasted peppers, red onions, thyme, Mozzeralla, roasted garlic and olive oil. Wow! $21 for a large pizza of this caliber, I'd say that's worth it.

A friend and I had the "Molto Carne" and were very impressed by the crust and the freshness of the ingredients. Other friends from the neighborhood have raved about the Hummus Plate ($7.50); great selection of marinated Italian tomatoes, Feta, pepperoncini, flat bread, hummus, and olives.

Check out this great addition to the Capitol Hill neighborhood. You can eat in, take-out, and they'll even "half-bake" it for you, so that you can finish baking at home. Their hours are: Sunday thru Thursday 11am - 9pm; Friday/Saturday 11am - 10pm.
