Romancing Ricotta in Denver, Colorado
If you like cheese, get thee to Luca D’Italia. The dining room is upscale-cozy, small enough to feel intimate but large enough for comfort. Service is attentive and accessible without a trace of snobbery. All of the food is noteworthy, perfectly portioned plates that put a local, light-hearted spin on classic Italian. But the cheese—all hand-crafted in house, along with the pasta, cured meats and breads... the goat cheese sings, the mozzarella hums, and the burrata is the creamiest, tastiest treat you’ve never had. It’s all good at Luca, but the cheese puts the romance in ricotta.
