Cucina Colore

Cucina Colore has had an enviable run. As other restaurants in Cherry Creek North have come and gone, this beloved Italian bistro, with its big windows and landscaped patios, has quietly done its thing for nearly thirty years. Founded by Venanzio Momo, who once owned a coterie of Colore-branded outfits, the restaurant fits its well-heeled neighborhood as well as any neighborhood restaurant ever could, and it does so for good reason: Momo has given people what they wanted. That includes veal Bolognese, lasagna made with paper-thin slices of breaded eggplant in place of noodles, peach bread pudding with housemade caramel, and an array of salads – including imported bufala mozzarella and grana-Padano-crusted artichokes with arugula -- that appeal to the lunchtime crowd.
