Visited on a weeknight. No reservation, but we were seated promptly. Food was outstanding, waiter was most gracious, and evening was wonderful. Suggest reservations.

il Bistro Italiano is absolutely one of our favorite restaurants! We have always had excellent meals and wine. Tapas nights and half price wine nights have made this restaurant a favorite.

We had a great lunch. I had the Proscuitto E Avocado and my wife had Gnocci Al Pesto. Both were excellent and went well with our Orieto wine. Nice ambiance and a friendly,knowledgeable waitress. A very good Italian wine list and nice selection by the glass at moderate pricing.

asked the host for a larger table than the one he seated me at. He refused even though the restaurant was 1/2 empty. Finally the server and owner acquiesced to my request. The Sangiovese wine was good, even though the pour was small, I estimate 4 oz. The main course Lasagna: was terrible. Dry, needed more sauce, all in all... More

I am really sorry that you did not enjoy your visit at our restaurant. We have already spoken to the host that worked that night - I honestly don't know why he wouldn't seat you at a larger table but I also know that my husband took care of helping you as soon as you mentioned you wanted to be...

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.

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.
