I've had better lasagna back in seventh grade. Seriously the worst lasagna I've ever eaten - overly sweet marinara sauce, couldn't find any meat and void of Parmesan and very sparse with the Ricotta - this lasagna makes Chef Boyardee look like Mario Batali.

Ate here 9/24/16 and was disappointed in the food, though not in the quantity of the dish. The ravioli itself was good, but the sauce was apparently "out of a can" as it had no complexity--just tomato sauce. Not a hint of herbs or even garlic! The salad was fair, but no more, and the antipasto was pathetic--just slices of... More

My husband and daughter dined here in early June and enjoyed their meal. Last night, a group of 5 of us arrived at 6 pm. Seating was ample, as the dining room was virtually empty. I believe our waitress was new, as she appeared to be shadowed by another server. Drinks arrived promptly and our order was taken. Our entrees... More

HUGE servings for the price a lunch cannoli for $4.95 made with Clyde's Italian sausage you can't go wrong. And the little Devils and mild's it don't get any better. Come here everything I come back to Denver. Go here and see how food is supposed to be made.

And tasty! My husband is a homemade pasta starved Italian and he loved it. The place has been a Denver fixture for decades and has been recently updated. The menu is not huge and the salads are the type that you'd find in a roadside diner, replete with 3 or 4 croutons, pale lettuce and some tomato but the pasta... More

Arrived a little after 11:30am on a Thursday and got the last remaining table. Surprised at how packed the restaurant was at that time of day and figured it out after we got the menu. The price is very low and the food is tasty. I had the luncheon special which was a good sized salad and what they call... More

If you want lots of yummy food for just a few bucks, Lechuga's the place. They specialize in cannolis. These are not the dessert pastries most folks are familiar with. Lechuga's cannolis are sausages wrapped in dough, baked, and then served smothered in cheese and marinara sauce. They reminded me more of calzones or pig-in-a-blankets. They are very filling and...

This place has the best cannoli. We stopped in be for going down town and had there special of the day. Two cannolis with green chili in side. You can get them plain or smothered and have lettuce and tomatoes on them as well. The place has great service and great food. We will be back.

Never! Delicious Italian (of course) sausage, encased in a warm crust, topped with a hearty tomato sauce, I can truly say I've never had a treat like this! Served with a side of PERFECT, home made pasta with more sauce, I'm getting hungry again just thinking about it. In fact, after I finished my meal, I ordered the equivalent of... More

I went there to pick up a bucket o'spaghetti for my family and I had a corona while I waited. The waitress was very friendly and helpful, but I guess I should have expected this from a bucket of spaghetti - it was pretty bland and underwhelming. It came with a salad, which was decent, and some cheesy garlic bread,... More
