Pizzicato Gourmet Pizza calls it quits in Capitol Hill
"Thank you for calling Pizzicato Gourmet Pizza in Capitol Hill, Denver. Due to the economic times, we have decided to close this location."
That's the message I got when I called the only Colorado outpost of the Oregon-based pizzeria earlier this afternoon to check on a rumor that the joint was shuttered. The sleek pizzeria, which opened just under a year ago at 1300 Pennsylvania Avenue, still has 22 operating locations in California, Oregon and Washington, but it seems that the Denver pie hole couldn't rise above the local crust.
