Pizza >Proto's Pizza
Hot, from the Crust Up.. My roommate and I have been going to Proto's every Wednesday night for the last 6 months. We go for the great pizza, the great beer, and the incredible service that we get from a fantastic group of people. Go to Proto's becuase you want to have a good time...hang out with a group of eclectic people from all over the Denver area. It has a chill vibe and a welcoming environment. If you are in hurry for pizza...call one of those chains for delivery. But If you want a one of a kind pie, check this place out. I can honestly say this is one of my favorite spots in Denver.
Fabulous Customer Service. Coming from a small town I had my doubts that I could find a similar experience in the big city. I have to say that Protos has proven to me that no matter were you are in the world that a small town feel can be experienced anywhere. Every time I walk into Protos on wednesday nights I feel like I am a welcome friend. Not only do they have great food but they also have fabulous customer service; the greeting I receive by the Hostess, the positive attitudes and smiles seen in the Kitchen crew and Support staff, as well as great conversations with the Bartender, Waiters/Waitresses, and Manager, I feel that this little place called Protos is food for the soul...
I'm torn.... Proto's has incredable pizza...if it was not for there awesome pizza I would never go back. On multiple occasions it would take close to 10 minutes before anyone greeted us and another 45 minutes to seat us. Then once we did get seated it has taken close to another 15 minutes before our waiter even stopped by the table to get our drink order. There service is terrable and the resturant is so small your lucky to even get a table. If your willing to deal with waiting and terrable service for good pizza then this is the place for you.
Looking for disappointment?. We tried Proto's because of the great reviews. There were 3 tables seated in the restaurant, but it took 15 minutes for our waiter to greet us with his "I don't want to be here" attitude. It took another 20 minutes for him to return with our drinks and take our order. We didn't see him again until our burned pizza arrived. Then, after we had finished eating our charred dinner, he decided to smile when he dropped off the check--nice last-ditch effort for a tip. The place was empty, and this is the service we had. I can't imagine what it's like when the place is packed. We will never return to this restaurant.
This place is great. The review below me is ridiculous.. This place has great pizza, wine, martinis and desert. The pizza is the best I have had in a long time. The seating is tight but it works just fine. The entire staff was very nice. We tried two different types of pizza and the gelato cookies and cream and it was all amazing! Great neighborhood also.
DO NOT EAT HERE. We were seated promptly but people from the bar had their jackets and scarfs on the table and the hostess did not have them moved and expected us to sit on their personal items. Once seated we went unnoticed for about 12 minutes, while those that arrived after us were greeted and had their orders taken. Our table was mashed between a busy walkway and the bar, quite uncomfortable. The portion size of the tomato and mozzarella salad was really small for the high price tag. My boyfriend had a fork and food dropped into his lap by a waiter passing by. We were delivered the wrong pizzas twice, before our pizzas arrived. When they finally arrived 45 minutes after ordering, there was no apology. Overall, we could never get the attention of our waiter. The restaurant has lots of staff, but they seem to not coordinate together at all. This place was a miserable experience!!!!
Good pizza, wine and staff. This is a place where you want to sit down, split a fresh green salad and have a thin crust (not too heavy) pie. Finish it with either a crisp white or a flavorful red and you have a good start to your evening. On occasion, they have wine tastings that are unpretentious and low cost. Try something new and show up on one of those nights, the staff will help you match your pizza with your wine. When's Domino's ever done that for you?
Best pizza in town!. The pizza is light with excellent flavor. The atmosphere is young & urban & neighborhoody. My only complaint is that sometimes the staff is standoff-ish. But it's usually because they are so busy. There are only a couple of tables outside, but it's fun to sit out front on a sunny summer day.
I Love this Pizza in downtown Denver. This is a great occasion to treat yourselves with the best pizza in Denver. The food is great along with the atmosphere and service. Proto's is not your typical pizza restaurant we see here in this part of the country. This is how pizza should be everywhere and makes me appreciate where pizza really came from and what it's really meant to be. Thank you Proto's for your awesome restaurant and hope to see you this winter comming from Oklahoma City.
Great vegetarian pizza. Today for lunch I had a vegetarian pizza to go (i think it's called the "Key" something) with artichoke hearts, kalamata olives, and pesto. It really was fantastic. They are a little pricey for the size ($10 including tax for the smallest pizza with 4 slices), but I will definitely come back. This is my second time there and was not disappointed.
