3651 Navajo St. Denver, CO 80211 | Northwest Denver | 303-477-8910

Location Description:

After more than ninty years in northwest Denver, Patsy's continues to make history -- and great pasta. The traditions in this kitchen are strong. The spaghetti is thick, the red sauce mercifully free of unwarranted spiciness and the mussels in white wine and garlic an absolute must whenever you sit down at one of the house's wobbly old tables. If traditional, street-corner ristorante Italian has a champion in Denver, it's Patsy's.
