Vero

Laura Shunk
Proprietor Andrea Frizzi finally ventured outside of the Mile High City in April 2018 to open his third restaurant, Vero, in Boulder. The longtime Denver chef had helmed just Il Posto, his high-end restaurant, until 2016, when Denver Central Market developer Ken Wolf asked Frizzi if he knew anyone who could do pizza. "I said, 'Dude. The fuck?'" recalls Frizzi. And thus the first Vero was born. Its northern outpost offers the same menu as the Denver sibling: Milanese-style pizza, which is thinner and crispier than its Napolitano cousin and topped considerably more creatively. Vero's crust is cracker-crisp, with a nice yeasty complexity; we like ours simply adorned with tangy tomato sauce, bubbling mozzarella and biting fresh basil, though pies here come loaded with everything from ricotta and egg to tuna and olives.
