I studied abroad in Florence (basic I know), but that means I know good Italian food. Many call me crazy but I am not huge on pizza, I would rather have a big bowl of pasta. But, don't worry I still know good pizza. Although Denver may be lacking in the Italian department compared to other cities, there are still a few good spots I recommend.
