From eighth-generation restaurateur, Alessandro Polo, Lo Stella Ristorante presents a slice of the Italian coast in Denver. This family-run endeavor skimps over Americanized Italian (looking at you Fettucine Alfredo) for traditional fare straight from nonna’s recipe book including the Tagliatelle with Bolognese sauce and the Pappardelle al Pesto. The restaurant is a block away from the Denver Art Museum, making date night that much easier.

Fish N Beer {3510 Larimer Street, Denver, 303.248.3497}

If wood-fired whole fish and grilled oysters tickle your fancy, then set your sights on Fish N Beer. Centered around an oak-burning grill, this quaint spot focuses on the fresh fish selections including Whole Grilled Colorado Bass and Wild Sea Bass Jambalaya. Don’t forget to slurp up and oyster or two.
