Nestled in Denver’s River North District in a 3,700-square-foot space on the ground floor of The Current — a 12-story office development currently under construction...

Neighborhood joint, approachable food — that’s the message coming from Bret Springs and Zach Marten about The Wise Guy, their new Crossroads bar and restaurant. “Casual red-sauce Italian,” Springs said, “and a relatively aggressive happy hour.” “Pizza, pasta, martinis, cocktails,” Marten said. “You could do a date here, but the game’s on TV too.” T...

In many ways, opening Osteria Bianchi was all about a homecoming for Josh and Kelly Bianchi. For one, Kelly is a Kansas City native, so the return here seemed like the right fit for their family after the glitz of Las Vegas. The American Italian restaurant is also a return to some family roots: Josh’s grandmother is from Sicily, and the restaurant’...

When it comes to specialty food shops and restaurants that have stood the test of time, no St. Louis neighborhood does it better than the Hill. The south city neighborhood still wears its Italian roots proudly, with fire hydrants and even crosswalks proudly sporting the Tricolore, and naturally there are numerous Italian delis, bakeries, coffee sho...

At some point during the year, many of us will find ourselves dreaming of escaping to a faraway place: a white, sandy beach in Greece, a quaint café in Paris … but a European getaway doesn’t have to mean jet-setting overseas! Wyoming may not often get credit for its diverse and authentic array of international cuisines, but the Cowboy State has a p...

A lot has changed for Italian Kitchen, 540 W. McDaniel St., since it opened, but one thing has stayed the same: Chef Alessandro De Luca's commitment to sharing authentic Italian cuisine with Springfield. It started as a take-out, catering and reserved party venture, but has since grown to include classes and weekly dinners that showcase Italian cui...

Bacaro is in the same building as Noto at 5105 Westwood Drive in St. Peters, just downstairs and toward the back of the ma...

In northern Italy, along Lake Como, you’ll find Mandello del Lario, a city famous for manufacturing Moto Guzzi motorcycles since 1921 and less famous for some of the more interesting restaurants in the region. There, in the La Pizzeria-Trattoria Rosalba I had my first brush with handfuls of sage in Italian cooking and the enormous influence herbs l...

There are so many great restaurants in Denver’s RiNo neighborhood – I’m certainly making an effort to try them all. I love dining in this fun and happening part of town and so far, I’ve been impressed with almost every single place I’ve tried. One spot that’s especially worthwhile in this part of town is Dio Mio Handmade Pasta on Larimer. This coun...

Have you ever tried fresh pasta? No, I mean fresh pasta – the kind made in-house by the loving hands of a chef and/or someone’s nonna. If not, well, we’re in luck – I found a spot serving up what might be the most delicious, freshest pasta in South Dakota, and you’ll find it in Rapid City in an unassuming little restaurant that might otherwise be a...
