Angelo's Taverna

620 E. 6th Ave. Denver, CO 80203 | Central Denver | 303-744-3366

Location Description:

Now well into its third decade, this Italian eatery has real staying power. It's fueled by a quintessential red sauce, a thick gravy of tomatoes that goes well with Angelo's homemade pasta and meatballs. The pizza is good, too, with a medium-thick crust that holds up under the generous load of toppings.
