Paravicini's Italian Bistro
Paravicini means "For the Neighborhood"
Located in Old Colorado City, just minutes from downtown Colorado Springs or the Broadmoor Hotel, owners Chef Franco Pisani and Ted Sexton created Paravicini's Italian Bistro "for the neighborhood!". The restaurant is close, easy to find, has private rooms for special events and has plenty of free parking.
Colorado Spring's Best Italian Food
Paravicini's offers the city's best Italian, bar none! Lofty claim, yes, but the award winning food and service backs it up! Named the Best New Restaurant when it opened, the independently owned (meaning NOT a chain) restaurant continues to win accolades! Paravicini's Italian Bistro has been named a Gold Medalist for Best Italian by the the Colorado Springs Independent reader's poll for 7 Years in a row and Best Italian by the Colorado Springs Gazette for 6 years running!
Delicious Food, Wine and Drink
Featuring family style menus, a carefully selected wine list designed to complement the outstanding food and a reasonably priced full bar, Parvicini's Italian Bistro is sure to please everyone in your party! Chef Franco's menu contains classic Italian favorites as well as "Paravicini Originals" that can only be found here.
The menu features delicious appetizers (the calamari is wonderful,) soups and salads and a range of pastas and seafood pastas. Spaghetti & Meatballs, Fettucini Alfredo, Penne alla Vodka, Scallops alla Pesto, or Shrimp Scampi Risotto are just a few of the pasta options.
Entrees include classic dishes, some amazing original creations and steak. Classic entrees include Chicken Marsala, Eggplant Parmigiana, or Veal Picatta, to name a few. "Paravicini Orignals" include Veal Tuscano, Salmon Jeanette, Tilapia Calabrese, and Chicken Marco, as well as many others. Chef Franco's take on the traditional NY Strip Steak includes the Capricosa, Gorgonzola, Steak Waterbury Style and Paravicini!
