Dio Mio: Denver’s Freewheeling, Inventive Pasta Restaurant

June 27, 2019
Dinner at Dio Mio

In my opinion, Dio Mio has only gotten better with time and has become one of my favorite Italian restaurants in Denver. Chef/owners Alex Figura and Spencer White opened their restaurant in the fall of 2016 and have since turned their debut dining experience into the ultimate punk rock pasta shop.

With a pay at the counter, find your own table service model, they appeal to a young and hip clientele looking for a casual hang with top-notch food. Diners who descend upon this spot can expect excellent handmade fettucinnis and agnolottis at affordable prices. (Pastas are generally in the $14-17 price range.)

Rigatoni at Dio Mio Pasta

The Rigatoni with fennel sausage, greens, and bread crumbs is a mainstay on the menu and one of my favorites. Weekly and seasonal specials make guest appearances, with patrons taking to Instagram to boast of catching the latest addition, fueling a gotta catch ’em all-type fervor among Dio Mio fans.

If regular visits aren’t enough of a display of devotion, don’t worry, you can pick up a $25 concert-style tee to let your allegiance be known wherever you go.
