Denver Restaurant Week ~ Firenze a Tavola

Firenze a Tavola is the sister restaurant to Parisi. Both of these restaurants are owned and operated by native Italians, and I’ve found them to be one of the most authentic restaurants in the area for Italian food.

This is Denver restaurant week, so they have a set menu for us to choose from. See menu below. The cost of the dinner is $30 (not including tax, tips, or drinks). We will have separate checks.

Since this is Restaurant Week, they will be very busy, and normally they require a deposit for large groups. I was able to book our group without making that deposit, but only because I guaranteed them I would do everything I can to make sure that everyone who signs up for this event, is committed to being there. We don’t want them to reserve spots for us, that then are not used when they could have taken in other business. Please only sign up for this event if you are 100% committed to attending this event. If you realize your plans have changed, then update your RSVP status right away. If you are signed up the day of the event, you are expected to be there. DO NOT CANCEL THE DAY OF THE EVENT! That will count as a no-show!

    Having lived in Italy I usually never ever ever eat at an Italian restaraunt in the states (I'd rather make it myself), but this seems intersting. Florence btw has the best pastas in the world.

      Now days I do fusion dishes like Tandoori Pasta or Fettucine Sausage crumble (I do the nooodles in a wok), but if I am going to make an authentic italian dish I make rigattoni ai quattro formaggi. Looking forward to this, thank you very much.

      I think Parisi/Firenze a Tavola food is much better than food from any chain Italian restaurant or even small family Italian restaurants in the Denver area. When I was new in Denver I asked to a friend where to eat good Italian food, he told me that he had called the Italian American Business Association for advice and they recommended Parisi.
