RUDE – We have never been treated more rudely by a restaurant. We would never go there again. My husband was injured as a fireman in Los Angeles. His injury resulted in him being extremely allergic to many foods. He must always take is own food with him to avoid devastating reaction. He still enjoys taking his family and friends out to eat. ALL restaurants we go to are very understanding and allow him to eat with us. After asking permission at Parisi to do this we were rudely interrupted in the middle of our meal and he was told to put his food away. Later when he called the owner he was treated even more rudely.
WIde Selection of Imported Foods – Perfect Italian bread, just the right crunch and so soft inside :P Yum
The deli here offers so many things you just can not find anywhere else in Denver. KUDOS!
tennyson mainstay – Great wood baked pizza...really good! Take home a loaf of their fresh baked pugliese bread!
for the prices I would like some table service instead of taking a number to the table. Over all a good experience.
Service and food have gone downhill! – Parisi used to be a Highlands staple! I went for the first time in months last night, and the staff was unfriendly and rude. They acted like we were breaking the law for wanting a table for six people, and continued to be rude to us throughout dinner. The food used to be amazing, and last night left many things to be desired. The risotto was unflavorful, the pizza soggy, and the gnocci was obviously from a package and not the homemade it used to be. Parisi, you have gone downhill. Very dissapointed and will not be going back!
Gluten Free Pizza is HORRIBLE – I loved this place when it was small and when I was able to eat regular food. Now I am gluten free because of Celiac Disease.
I am thrilled that a lot of restaurants are trying to include gluten free items on their menus, however, most of them don't do it well.
The gluten free pizza here at Parisi is by far the worst I have had anywhere! Totinos $3 pizza is better. It appeared it was a frozen pizza that was then topped with a few pieces of mushroom. I sent it back once because it wasn't even warm when they served it. Plus this place is overcrowded, you are packed in like sardines, and the ordering process is just stupid. Wish it could go back to the original great place it was.
If you want truly exceptional GLUTEN FREE ITALIAN FOOD,
go to ABRUSCI'S Italian Restaurant 3244 Youngfield Wheat Ridge. Real GF bread! Pizza like reg pizza, Sandwiches are great too! Next time I will go the extra distance.
Horrible gluten free pizza – Before I became gluten free, Parisi was my favorite pizza. So, imagine my excitement when they have gluten free pizza crust that is advertised as "better than ever." Not only do you have to pay $5 more for gluten free, you are paying more for a substandard pizza that is like eating cardboard with sauce and stingy sprinkling of cheese and toppings. Only go to Parisi if you can enjoy their regular menu items.
Poor Service @ Parisi Italian Market!!! – Service staff was rude and lack common sence regarding an elderly lady with a O2 tank...she was seated at a table resting before ordering and a service staff girl make her leave! Even other guests asked to let her stay and they would go to another table, but the server insisted that she leave the table and go the the other side of the market to sit before waiting in line to order food and drink. With many other delis and eating out choices in that area, one would think that some common sence regarding elderly with a O2 tank could have a break at Parisi! Try Vinnola, Carbone, or Patrick Carrolls...
Best pizza in Denver – We've tried the pizza all over Denver, and keep coming back to Parisi. The Margarita pizza is as good as anything we had in Italy. The crust is thin and crisp, the mozzarella is just to-die-for, and everything is fresh and in all the right proportions. I love all of the food at Parisi, but the Margarita is so good, I don't often stray to another pizza. But don't be afraid of the very affordable daily specials. I've never been disappointed.
Firenze a Tavola-Over Priced/Pretentious Waitstaff – The combination of an arrogant waiter, noisy rooms, and small, over priced food portions that were nothing special made us angry that we'd even gone there. I just don't see the point of Firenze a Tavola's existence!
Certainly not in this tough economy.
As a huge fan of Italian food, this place was a "rip off."
One of the best pizzas in Denver – If you've ever been to Rome, you know that Parisi's pizza is a very authentic version. I especially recommend the margherita, with nothing but a kiss of tomato, fresh mozzarella and basil. Additionally, unlike other reviewers, I find the prices extremely affordable. I've stopped by after work for a take and bake pizza and salad and walked away having spent less than $20. The panini and salads are also extremely good and the service is generally quick and responsive. I love the neighborhood as well as the overall ambience of the space. In a town with lots of pizza places, Parisi certainly stands out among the best, and that list is very short. (The Oven, Enzo's and Proto's all come to mind as well)...
