Yes since the early1900's there were 2 restaurants owned by this family, Calachis closed years ago. 50 years ago they were packed on the weekends, we went mid-week to get a table for 20. To this day I can see the home made noodles on the plate, extra sauce in a big bowl, excellent meatballs and sausage links. Our favorite... More

Growing up in the 50's in Boulder, a trip to Louisville to the Blue Parrot was very special! The first home made pasta I'd ever eaten! Tasty sauce! The best Shirley Temples! Excellent service! No more. Haven't been here in 10 years, and I now cannot recommend it to anyone! On a sunny Sat. when streets were filled with shoppers,... More

I lived in Louisville, CO, about 45 years ago. When i was just a kid, I watched them make noodles. I loved their spaghetti and Italian sausage. My Mom and Dad did too. It tastes the same as it did back then. Yum. It was a step back in time.

One of the best in Colorado. If it's Italian, then it's the best. Only in Louisville Colorado. Good family fun and food at a very reasonable price.

I've had meals at the Blue Parrot Restaurant more times than I can count, and I've never been disappointed in the food quality. It's simple Italian (Sicilian) fare, and emphasizes pasta in many of it's iterations. What sets it apart from all others is the fantastic sauce (which they sell in glass jars at many regional supermarkets, including Wal-Mart)! Their... More

My wife and I took out grandson's, ages 8 & 12 to Blue Parrot on October 8th. After horrible service and barely warm food, we were presented with a $70 tab, for lunch, and no alcoholic drinks were involved. This was for 4 spaghetti dinners.

This place is the real deal. Yummy, authentic Italian food. Its been here forever, and has always been good. Not the newest, cleanest, or trendiest, but a good old standby.

We have been going to the Blue Parrot for over forty years. Back in the day, it and another Italian restaurant were about the only "games in town" due to the influence of Italian coal miners who lived in the area. The other place is gone, but the Blue Parrot still proudly carries on despite significant competition from other places... More

We have been going to the Blue Parrot, founded by the Colacci family during the early 20th century, since our college days back in the 1950's. The traditional home cooked dishes feature a hand-made and hand-cut spaghetti, the same style that we found around Sienna, Italy. There it is called picci. I think the Colacci's were from southern Italy so... More
