Re: “Borriello Brothers - Fontaine

This Pizza WAS awesome, But no longer is very good.

Borriello Brothers Pizza used to be my favorite. I moved to the Springs from Upstate NY where NY Style pizza abounds. It's just something about the crust and sauce that makes it so good.

When Borriello Brothers first arrived in town there was not a location near our home so I used to drive out of my way downtown to pick up pies at their only location. I would have driven just about anywhere for this pizza. That was back in 2009 I believe.

Unfortunately the last two times we have ordered pizza, the latest being Dec 3, 2011 it just wasn't the same. The crust is rubbery now. Not sure I'll ever go there again since it is not the great pizza it used to be. The last two pizzas that weren't very good came from the Centennial location. I'm not sure if it is the ovens or downgrade in ingredients but the pizza is no longer to die for. I may go... more ¬ĽNote the dates of the reviews. The older reviews are much better than the recent reviews. Used to be great but not worth the money any longer.

Similar to Amanda's Fonda that we used to love... until they increased the size of the restaurant and lost the specialness of the food. The homemade chips were to die for but now they are no different than low grade chips you can get at the grocery store. It just seems as restaurants grow quality declines unfortunately.

Poor Richards still has great pizza, which trumps Borriello Brothers now. And Il Vicino Wood-Oven Pizza are also very good but not NY style.

Re: “Ruffrano's Hell's Kitchen Pizza

I was perturbed that it took them 25 minutes to make a calzone. I got 2 slices of the macaroni & cheese pizza, which was tasty, but was surprised at how long it took them to bake the calzone. There was nobody ahead of me but I saw 2 take out pizzas (by that I mean I saw someone pick one up and another one that was being delivered). I was disappointed to find that there was a semi decent amount of toppings in it but there was more than 30% of just bread. I've been told it's hit or miss there and in my case, it was a miss.

Re: “Ruffrano's Hell's Kitchen Pizza

I'm sorry but I cannot rate this place very favorably. We were just there (Sat evening, July 30) and it was a disorganized mess. The pizza was not bad (although not the best I've ever had or anything), but they completely messed up our order as well as several other customer orders. If they can ever figure things out, they should be in good shape. I was frankly surprised they didn't offer us any sort of comp or anything, that was a little disappointing. Thumbs down at this point.

Re: “BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse

The menu is huge, which is usually a bad sign. The food was average - nothing special. Typical soul-less national chain.

Re: “Borriello Brothers - 8th

It's to bad, pizza started out great, but has gone steadly down hill since... the general attitude has never been good (thought they were going for that NY attitude)

Re: “Borriello Brothers - Platte

Over priced and really over priced. I have ordered their main selections, but in a gluten free crust. It really is a personal sized pizza AND they charge per item. So when you order that personal sized gluten-free crust, you are paying dearly. Be forwarned. You can make it much cheaper at home. The Caprese "salad" should be served as a salad to make it more hearty. Currently it is served traditionally a few slices of tomato, buffalo mozzarella and basil, drizzled with balsamic. Serve it over some lettuce and it will be more worth the price!
