Benzina — a chic, Neapolitan pizzeria in a former gas station on East Colfax Avenue — has it all, from its sprawling patio and housemade pasta to its funky ambiance and clever name (which means "gasoline" in Italian).
- Rocky Mountain Diner founder Brad Anderson has been planning the restaurant for three years.
What Alayna ordered first: The smoked trout Caesar ($15), crispy squid ($15) and margherita pizza ($16).
- What she's getting next: Yep, a second trip is already planned — because it's that good — to try the clam pizza with clam cream, parsley, lemon and calabrian chili ($20).
The restaurant is located at 4839 E. Colfax Ave and open Wednesday – Thursday and Sunday from 5–10pm and Friday – Saturday from 5–11pm.
- Look out for lunch and brunch menus dropping soon.
