Description: My husband Ron and I opened il Bistro Italiano in 1998 with the idea of bringing traditional food from my area of Italy to Grand Junction. I come from a small village in Northern Italy and what we serve at the Bistro reflects my heritage, but it is also the results of years of experimentations in using local ingredients in an "Italian" way. Part of our menu is deeply traditional and part is more "innovative Italian cuisine". This philosophy in food is also reflected in our focused wine list which features an extensive selection of Italian and Colorado wines only. Our full service bar also presents several Italian liquors including a variety of grappas.
We offer different seating options: a main dining room which seats about 50 people, a smaller dining room that seats about 25 and that is available for private functions, a few tables in the front of the restaurant with a good view of our open kitchen, and a covered and heated patio available from March through November.
