Enjoyed our Italian meal with excellent wine in a small, intimate dining room. Just a short distance from our hotel. We were grateful for a quiet meal that wasn't a chain restaurant! Service was a little slow but gracious. If you're staying in the area, a definite dinner option.

My wife and I stayed at the Clarion Inn in Grand Junction CO for one night in late January. We had dinner at this restaurant which is located within the hotel complex. We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Pantuso's Ristorante. The food was excellent, the portions very large and the service was very good. I highly recommend here as... More

The decor was promising.....Unremarkable food. Nothing amazing in the presentation. No panache regarding the experience. Pricey! Server could not pronounce parmagiana... Really? In an Italian restaurant!?! WOW! Would NOT recommend this to anyone!

Had Dinner on Monday, February 13, 2017. The happy hour is great a good Chianti Wine at a half price. I had the Cheese Ravioli, excellent flavor with bread and soup. Soup can be substituted for a great italian salad. The Ravioli was home made at the restaurant for great flavor. I eat there every time I am in Great... More

Visited this wonderful eatery after not being able to dine at another favorite. What a stroke of luck and fate!! Upon entering this wonderful restaurant and meeting the hostess we found ourselves feeling as if we were in Italy. Luck was to have the owner/chef speaking to the hostess when he turned to us and greeted us warmly. His apron... More

What a pleasant surprise!! Walked across the parking lot from our hotel after a long day's drive from Nebraska to Grand Junction. Happy hour prices for adult beverages & excellent pizza watching the Super Bowl. (Could have chosen a wide variety of Italian meal choices). Our server, Matt, provided more than excellent service. Totally enjoyable evening.

Pantuso's has been in various locations in Grand Junction over the years, but no matter the location, the perfect recipes has traveled from one spot to another intact. This is an old school Italian "red sauce" eatery that seems to be a vanishing breed. The trends toward "upscale Italian" or "Tuscan" or "national-chain-quasi-Italian" are changing the Italian restaurant scene...sometimes for... More

Nice place without being a stuffed shirt place. Somewhat pricey, but decent portions. Not bad for a road trip date night

I stopped in for a drink and a quick bite to eat. I sat in the bar, and NOT in the restaurant. The drinks were reasonably priced and the bartender was friendly, but busy. I ordered a salad as a dinner. It came quickly and was large enough to be a meal. It was fresh and good. I would recommend... More
