We found the hosting and service staff to be excellent - friendly, helpful, and knowledgable. My wine (orvietto) was delicious, and perfectly paired with the Pasta D'Inverno. Hubby loved his Rosetto. Everything was great and we'd go back again on our next visit to G.J.

This is the other good place to eat in downtown Grand Junction that starts with a "B." The host, while well-intentioned, gave us a 30 min. wait-time but then said we could sit in front, amongst other open tables, while we waited, then ended up...More

Hands down the best Italian food you will ever eat. The owners are straight from Italy. They make sure everything is fresh and made from scratch. They also try to get the freshest produce from local farmers which I love.

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.
