At the time of this posting, I will be honest. We have not been over impressed with the Fort Collins restaurant scene. For an area that has access to the most local produce, the restaurants are just now catching up. And if you know me, I love food and restaurant food better be better than what I can cook up at home.

We tried Bissetti’s  with a couple who came for a visit on the Silver Plan. We were pleasantly surprised.  I think we all agreed the beet salad and burrata with honey appetizer were excellent.

All the pastas are made fresh. I will say the portion sizes were substantial. I had the salmon risotto and I had some to take home. The server and chef were both responsive to a couple of edits to our dishes. Mike’s gnocchi was very good!

The selling point of this restaurant is the Wine Down Thursday.  All bottles of wine less than $45 are half off. Our first bottle was a Super Venetian 2011 Masa Campofiorin. None of had ever heard of a Super Venetian. It was excellent. Needless to say, we shared a second bottle.

The atmosphere is not rushed. It is quiet enough to have a conversation so dinner can be leisurely, which is a plus when you are trying to catch up with friends!

Prices: reasonable $$
