there used to be a place in highlands ranch called bisettis. it was pretty good but got replaced by Romano's, which is garbage. i would not recommend it. i think there is still a bisettis in fort collins.

It comes from the Yiddish and means one who accumulates knowledge. To quote, "the critical thing about Mavens, though, is that they aren't passive collectors of information. It isn't just that they are obsessed with how to get the best deal on a can of coffee. What sets them apart is that once they figure out how to get that deal, they want to tell you about it too." I'm a weirdo basically, but I love finding where the best things are and sharing what I discover. I guess that's why I found this site!!!
If you want a social book that is similar, read Blink, if you haven't. Also by Malcom Gladwell. Like The Tipping Point, its a fast read and though provoking

One of the local news channels did a story about the history of Italians in Denver - 9NEWS - Article - RSS - Day 2: Italians of Denver (http://www.9news.com/rss/article.aspx?storyid=80858 - broken link)
There is a video in the link also. It was basically the Highlands in North Denver. Some of the old restaurants are still there but the neighborhood is now significantly mixed.

I was about to mention Romano's. The location on Windermere is the better of the two. Best pizza I've ever had, and I've had a lot of pizza.

There's Pasquini's in south metro Denver now, in DTC and Lonetree. I've only frequented the one at Uptown, which is good eating.

I've been to the one in Lone Tree for pizza. It was pretty good - say 7-8 out of 10 in my pizza book. Been meaning to go back and try the pasta but it's not one of the easier places to go with the twins to eat.

Brio's, Venice, Il Fornaio and Maggiano are the ones I go to often.

The bread in Brio's is hard to beat

My friends once took me to Via Bachi or something on Lincoln near target in Lone Tree. It was so ghetto I ran away as fast as I could.
