Colorado may not be as known for its pizza as places like Chicago and New York, so out-of-towners are often surprised to learn that the Centennial State is home to some mouthwatering pizzerias of its own! That being said, the next time you are craving a pie, skip the generic chains and opt for REAL pizza from someplace like Amici’s in Colorado.
Located in Wheat Ridge, Amici’s Pizzeria & Italian (or Fanelli’s Amici’s) is a family-owned-and-operated restaurant that has been delighting Denver’s tastebuds since the 1970s.
Boasting a warm Italian ambiance, Amici’s will make you think you have left the Mile High City for a charming cafe, thanks to both its decor and treat-you-like-family staff.
While the atmosphere is reason enough to visit Amici’s, the food may just steal the show, beginning with rich options like authentic sandwiches and calzones, gigantic plates of homemade pasta, and desserts as good as nonna used to make.
Now let’s talk about everyone’s favorite food: Pizza!
As we previously mentioned, the pizza pies from Amici’s are something to write home about, as they come complete with a homemade, buttery crust and all of the fresh and flavorful toppings you crave.
Can’t you just smell (and taste) this deliciousness through your screen?
Amici’s Pizzeria & Italian is open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
