    This was our first time dining at Baronessa and we loved the experience! We'll definitely be back. The service was amazing, the food was very delicious, and the prices were reasonable. The restaurant has a elegant and homey feeling to it with the beautiful murals of Italy. Kudos to Owner/Chef Angel and his team on the wonderful culinary experience they've created.

    Although we usually order takeout from this restaurant once every month or so, today was the first time my family and I dined inside. The food was excellent, and we had quick service by the waiter who was very attentive and polite. I had the manicotti and my wife and daughter both had the pasta with vodka sauce. We will definitely be returning in the near future.

    I love a good story, it adds substance to everything and that includes places I go to eat. You need to take a little visit to this Italian restaurant(previously owned by a 70-year-old woman) now owned by two business partners with backgrounds from Honduras and the Czech Republic! Not only is the food fresh and flavorful; but the setting quaint, and service is fast and friendly. I admire the heart that has gone into this place - from insisting on having a brick oven for the pizza (plus meatballs and other menu items to add flavor from the burning oak); to having a former 2 Amy's and Red Rocks chef trained in making top shelf Neapolitan pizza (fyi takes just 90 seconds at 900F!) I haven't been to Italy yet, but I have a pretty good idea of what the food tastes like now. You won't be disappointed. Try the brussels sprouts, one of the fresh house made pastas dishes, the bruschetta, and or course, some pizza! I had the Gude Goody which is great for meat lovers. The bruschetta certainly deserves an honorable mention. If you are gluten free or looking for a lighter option with the pizza, they have cauliflower crust available. Wine is half off on bottles on Thursdays, and yes, they have brunch!

    Fantastic food and service! This was the first time here and it did not disappoint. We ordered the classic pepperoni pizza and, while it was cooking, the owner came out and asked me and my kids if we wanted to go see it cooked. It was a very cool behind-the-scenes look at the kitchen and that awesome wood-fired pizza oven. The chicken parmesan and penne con salcicia were also delicious. I cannot recommend this place enough!

    Great wait staff and host, good environment, good food. My wife and I had a pleasant experience here. The inside is bright and alive and reminds me of any other Italian restaurant. The wait staff was alternative, quick to take our order and give us refills. The host (I believe he is the owner but I never asked) actually came by and greeted us and chatted with us for a second. After tell him that we order a calzone, he actually invited us to the back to show us the wood burning oven (pictured here) and how our calzone was made. It was a nice touch. The pesto calzone we ordered was good, but I can't say it was the best I've ever had. The flavors were good and it was well seasoned, and the cheese combination was a good choice. However, when we cut into it a bit of oil leaked out quite a bit onto the plate; not too bad. The one thing that I did knock the calzone on was the center was definitely undercooked. It was warm, but not hot. It didn't take away from the flavors any since the middle was mostly mozzarella and ricotta, but it was an unpleasant surprise. The tomato sauce that it came with was excellent. I'd be happy to come back and try something in that tomato sauce. I want to give them the benefit of the doubt and think that since they were really busy when we came it's probably why they pulled our calzone early. It wasn't bad by any means, but the like warm center did make it hard to finish. Overall, we had a pleasant experience and will definitely come back.
