Parisi Italian Market & Deli

4401 Tennyson St. Denver, CO 80212 | Northwest Denver | 303-561-0234

Location Description:

The original Parisi Italian Market & Deli opened in 1998, in what's now the home of Cafe Brazil, and proved so popular that it soon moved to a bigger space on Tennyson Street. It changed more than locations; over the years, Simone and Christine Parisi shifted emphasis from a market that had prepared foods to more of a sit-down eatery. But one thing remained a constant: Simone wanted to serve the best, authentic Italian fare possible, based on places he'd frequented growing up in Florence: mozzarella made in-house; veal done five ways; homemade tagliatelle and tagliolini pasta; two dozen varieties of pizza. And now Parisi has the perfect setting for that fare. In early 2013, Parisi unveiled a completely redone space that's now a full-fledged restaurant. "It's the third generation of Parisi, and every five years or so, it's important to update it," Simone explained. "The best part about this space is that it's so open, and I can see every single face that's sitting down, and that's a very cool thing." And there are plenty of regulars fighting for those seats -- and Simone's incomparable cooking.
