There are so many Italian restaurants in the Denver area and I'm always surprised that the Cherry Tomato is ranked so poorly compared to some other places however this is simply based on the fact that the number of reviews is so small. Perhaps nobody...More

Well, it's authentic, unpretentious, and affordable so I'm sure some out of state developer is scheming to tear it down and put up ugly condos as we speak. It's an old school menu, so no pork belly but they do have GF pasta which is...More

The Cherry Tomato is located on a residential street, and sits quietly on a corner. It is a charming place to have dinner! The hostess was super friendly, our waitress obviously loved her job, and the food was splendid! We had a wide variety of...More

The $3.99 a slice 4 layer chocolate cake from Safeway is much more flavorful than the $6.95 chocolate cake served here. However, I know from past experience that the entrees are great.

Extensive menu, delicious food, and solid wine list. This is where the locals eat, and for good reason. It's off the beaten track, but that's a good thing, and means it's rarely crowded enough to require much of a wait. Great for kids, too, with...More

Very good Italian in a little old building in Denver. The menu had great options and everyone in my group of 4 loved their meal. Also great desserts. The kitchen is open to the dining room so it's neat to see them preparing your meal....More

No, it does not, however, the cocktails are always reasonably priced and well made, and the wine list is good with moderate prices. You won't be disappointed.
