    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!

    First time here. Ordered the Bruschetta as a starter and was pleasantly surprised at how fluffy and crunchy the bread was, nor was it soggy. The bread basket was delicious as well. For the main course I ordered the Seafood Risotto, which comes with Jumbo shrimp. They were huge, 5 pieces for the whole dish though. I prefer more variety like clams and scallops as well, but it did the job. It was a little too cluttered- onions, tomatoes were too big, and mushrooms. It disrupted the soft texture I love in risotto but none the less was still delicious. My partner had the Lunch Eggplant Parmesan and let me try a bite and I much preferred that over my own dish! The marinara was light and delicious, and the eggplant was soft and not too oily with that satisfying breaded crunch. Can't wait to eat the leftovers at home.

    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!
