Last summer Kitchen Nightmares came to metro Denver, and chef/host Gordon Ramsay gave makeovers to three long-time Colorado restaurants: The Old Neighborhood in Arvada, Mangia Mangia in Woodlawn Park and Pantaleone's New York Pizza. Before she caught last month's episode featuring Pantaleone's, Gretchen Kurtz visited the Fafalios family's almost-thirty-year-old pizzeria in southeast Denver, and tasted the results of that Ramsay's visit. And as she reports in this week's review of Pantaleone's, change can be good. See also: The twelve best pizzas in Denver Says Steven:
I'm glad to hear about this makeover. I don't watch TV, so I didn't see the Kitchen Nightmares makeover.
My first visits were when I was a kid and the lady who watched us after school was in this neighborhood. After two disappointing meals with friends, I couldn't ask people to come back here. Now I'm looking forward to it.
Thanks for this review, it really brightened my day for their entire family.
