Default Collacchi Restaurant in NW Denver?

Growing up in Aurora my folks used to take us kids out to a restaurant in either Louisville or Lafayette called Collacchi's. I have tried looking on the web but can't find anything about if it is still around or what happened to it. I remember we used to go out for spaghetti dinner and they used to have great spumoni ice cream for dessert.

These are memories from back in mid 60's so I imagine much has changed since then. Just wondering if anyone might have information on it.

Thanks
Jim

Too bad... delicious hand made pasta and hand made Italian sausage. Sucks they had to shut down. Another casualty of the previous bad economy?

Use to love the Blue Parrot! I still use their sauce to this date, we get it at King Soopers. Costco use to carry it but can't find it there anymore. Right now Amici's on 44th & Wads is our favorite Italian place, been eating there since they were over on Sheridan years ago.

Collacchi's and The Blue Parrot...
Used to make the short run from Boulder to Louisville back in the day when I was a Student.
Being from Chicago, The Italian food here is (still) lacking in flavor compared to the dishes I grew up on back home...
I have never found a comparable restaurant since My Chi town days...
AND, I've tried most of them.
Oh!! for the use of GARLIC and FENNEL..... which is lacking here abouts...
NOW, Mexican Food, on the other hand....
WOW !!

I love Amiciís. 3 Sons in Arvada is good.

The original owners of 3 sons have a restaurant on 88th & Independence.

Did you get sick from the food or an over-abundance of Chianti, lol.

Was too young to drink, not sure what was in that sauce but thought I was allergic to spaghetti after that. The sausage was so good it was almost worth it.

Sounds like you might have been sensitive to something in the sauce... too bad 'cause it was great!
