The pizzas are the reason to visit this eatery owned by two Denver Italian families since the 1970s. The service is friendly and efficient, and while the red-sauce dishes can be serviceable but not particularly inventive, they satisfy if you're in the mood for classic Italian-American comfort food. The pizzas, though, benefit from a sweeter tomato sauce concoction and a thin, sturdy, crackly-edged crust. Our favorite? The over-the-top stuffed ricotta pizza.
