Big City Dining in Grand Junction—What? We hadn’t been to Grand Junction in a very long time. Years ago all you could find for dining was a steak house, some diners and some fast food places. Now Grand Junction has restaurants that make it feel all grown up! Il Bistro Italiano has delicious food, super servers and a nice setting.... More

My most favorite place in GJ. My husband likes because many offerings without pasta, but still great Italian. Group of 8 last nite. Still good service and personable wait staff. Recommend reservations, particularly weekend dinner.

This is probably some of the best Italian food you will get in Grand Junction. They make it from scratch there, very yummy. Nice restaurant in a fun location downtown.

This was our 5th time having dinner at the restaurant in the past 18 months. The first 4 times were great. Fifth time was terrible! We decided to take our out of town guests for a treat. Terrible experience, horrible food. Atmosphere great. Service was awful. We asked our waitress for things like water a fork to eat dinner -... More

We always make it a point to dine at il Bistro when we are in Grand Junction. The restaurant has an interesting menu, so there is always something special and pleasing for each member of our party. The "specials" are always worth considering. The wine list is interesting and offers a good variety of choices. The service is friendly and... More

While visiting the Grand Junction area, we opted to "go into town" for a dinner. GJ has become somewhat of a metropolitan canter of Colorado's western slope...and we were pleasantly surprised by the extensive, traffic controlled downtown, abustle with folks shopping, eating (in and out) and enjoying entertainment. The Il Bistro Italiano, in the center of things, puts out decent... More

il Bistro Italiano opened in August 1998. Our focus is on bringing a combination of traditional Italian dishes together with some innovative ones created within the boundaries of modern Italian cuisine. The pastas, breads, sauces, and desserts are all made at the restaurant from fresh ingredients. Our wine list features a large selection of wines from Italy and Colorado, and whenever possible, we use local ingredients in our kitchen. There is always something going on at the Bistro, so look at the Events Section to learn of special wine nights, cooking classes or other featured events.
