1. Start Spreadin' the News
By Lori Midson
Big Bill's New York Pizza
(out of 4 stars)
8243 S. Holly St., Littleton 303-741-9245
The Draw
Perfect place for families, a friendly and energetic staff, good pizza.
The Drawback
The waits can stretch up to an hour on weekend nights, which is a bad thing if you’ve got a fussy child. If you want to get away from kids, this probably isn’t the place for you.
Don't Miss
Calzone, white pizza, ravioli, meatballs. Vegetarian Options
Vegetarian Options
Vegetarian salad, veggie pizza, white pizza, calzone, veggie hero, numerous pastas.

2. Veg Out
By Lori Midson
Masalaa
(out of 4 stars)
3140 S. Parker Road, Aurora 303-755-6272
The Draw
Delicious and captivating vegetarian food.
The Drawback
This kind of food goes best with beer, but you’ll have to settle for a lassi (a chilled yogurt drink) because there are no libations here. The location, tucked inside a strip mall, is difficult to find.
Don't Miss
Dosas, thali, aloo masalaa, paneer tikka masalaa.
Vegetarian Options
You got it, it’s all vegetarian.

3. My Fair Lady
By K. Courtney DeWinter
Emiliana Dessert House and Restaurant

The Draw
Awesome food, more desserts than you can count, a kitchen that stays open until 1 a.m.
The Drawback
Pricey entrées, less-than-stellar decor.
Don't Miss
Mushroom strudel appetizer, smoked salmon salad, sweet potato bisque, Châteaubriand, molten German chocolate cake.

4. David and Goliath
By K. Courtney DeWinter
Carmine's on Penn
(out of 4 stars)
92 S. Pennslvania St. 303-777-6443

Hearty Italian food in a warm environment.
The Drawback
Portions tha tare overkill and demand a group or family visit; a reputation that out-weighs reality.

Bruschetta appetizer, chicken Marsala, tiramisu.
Vegetarian Options
Various salads and pasta options.
