Pantaleone's survived Kitchen Nightmares -- but is that pizza now dreamy?
Our recent list of the twelve best pizza spots in Denver raised a ruckus. In an outpouring on the Cafe Society blog, people took sides as if their dough -- not the floury white stuff -- depended on it. Interestingly, no reader gave a shout-out to Pantaleone's, even though the nearly thirty-year-old pizzeria was profiled earlier this month on Kitchen Nightmares.

Pantaleone's reports an uptick in business since the episode aired, with people who caught the show making the trek to the aging shopping center in Holly Hills.
