Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

After Gretchen Kurtz's review of Mas Kaos (where pasta and pizza share equal billing with tacos and guacamole), and with Columbus Day just around the corner, we have Italian cuisine on our minds. Looking back over our coverage of the local restaurant scene over the past few months, we noticed just how many new Italian spots have come to Denver — and how much Denverites also love our old classics. Here are our ten best Italian restaurant stories of the past three months:

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
