Pantaleone's survived Kitchen Nightmares -- but is that pizza now dreamy?

Our recent list of the twelve best pizza spots in Denver raised a ruckus. In an outpouring on the Cafe Society blog, people took sides as if their dough -- not the floury white stuff -- depended on it.

Pantaleone's reports an uptick in business since the episode aired, with people who caught the show making the trek to the aging shopping center in Holly Hills.
