Denver’s newest farm-to-table restaurant, like many of the others, has a local focus. This one, though, is local to a region half a world away.
Palizo Italiano is now serving regional northern Italian food, including house-made pastas, in Platt Park.
The restaurant replaced southern joint Fourteen Seventytwo at 1472 S. Pearl St., next door to Stella’s Gourmet Coffee.
The lunch menu includes a variety of antipasti, salads and main courses like a bacon Caesar burger and the San Marzano capellini pasta with San Marzano tomatoes and roasted garlic. The dinner menu features dishes including the Insalata di Granchio di Aspargi (crab salad, asparagus, with lemon zabaione), Basso a Strisce (whole Colorado striped bass, green beans, herbs, with a fig vincotto vinaigrette) and Entrecote for Two (dry-rubbed 48-ounce rib eye in a veal demi-glace).

Palizo Italiano is open for lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and for dinner from 5 to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 5 to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
