    Interesting Italian (Sicilian). Penne Rustica was spicy/hot (not typical of Italian or Sicilian). Fettucini Alfredo was good except they forgot the chicken (brought later separately). "bread" was just Hawaiian Rolls covered with cheese. But it was OK for an American/Italian restaurant.

    Delicious food and excellent service. We waited several (about 15) minutes for our table even with a reservation, but it’s understandable considering that the food and wine are so good that people just really want to stay and enjoy a great meal and fantastic service…you feel at home and don’t want to leave! Thank you for a delightful evening.

    We were very excited to try this restaurant as many of our friends told us about it. We made a reservation, were seated then the terrible experience began. If Mario is your server- RUN. He brought us the wrong drinks, then we ordered an appetizer and bread. We never got either. Then he came to take our order. We reminded him about our appetizer and bread, and it still never came. We sat RIGHT next to the kitchen so we saw all the orders being placed in the tray and servers running around like crazy delivering them etc. for us, still no sign of Mario, no appetizer, never came back so we could order more drinks (hopefully the right ones) then we thought we saw our food sitting on the tray. It sat there for a very long time and that’s when John stepped in. He grabbed the food and brought it to our table. We asked if we could order drinks with him. Mario came by eventually and asked if everything was ok, we told him we didn’t get our appetizers, we needed more drinks but ordered with John and he said ok and walked away. I’m not sure what was going on with Mario but it’s absolutely insane how someone could just not care and make the dining experience for someone so terrible. The worst part is was that he wasn’t running around crazy busy. We watched him just stand at the end of the steps the whole entire time. This completely ruined the experience and restaurant for us as we had a $100+ dinner and had to beg our waiter to do his job and then pull in another. We are sad as we live close and thought this would be a go too. Thanks John for stepping in and serving us!!

    We had a marvelous evening! Mario is always delightful. The food s ridiculously good!! Only complaint is that dishes aren’t bused. We ended up just stacking plates and glasses. We understand everyone is short staffed. But please pick up dishes when you walk by! We didn’t have space for the food that kept coming. This is one of our favorite spots to take friends. Everyone is always amazed at how delicious everything is!

    This was our first time at Odyssey, been driving by it for years and always wanted to check out. The staff our friendly, cheerful, efficient and accommodating. The food is gob-smackingly good with Gigantic portions. I thought the prices were a little high but then the food came, pretty amazing! It's a funky old-time Italian place, the kind people find, fall in love with, and then return again and again. My husband had the salmon, I had the Pesce Fresco with a very nice prosecco, and limoncello cake for dessert which was out of this world! Great date night spot! Caiti

    Can always count on an enjoyable meal. Parking nearby is a challenge. Restaurant is not very handicap friendly because of the uneven sidewalk in front of it. Would recommend as a place for an excellent Italian meal. This is reflected in it being consistently full of customers.

    I took my son to Odyssey for his birthday. He had been there before with friends, but I had not. We ordered the Caprese Insalata (very good), the Sicillian Fried Calamari (good, a little chewy), and my son ordered the Capellini Pomodoro & Basil with chicken (he loved it), and I ordered the Shrimp Palermo (Delicious)! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves authentic Italian dishes. Yummy! Thank you

    I love this homey Italian restaurant so much. The food is simply delicious and the taste is authentic. The wine selection was lovely, and the suggestions given by Prianna were on point. The risotto balls were splendid, the endless bread was something I could never say no to, and the Penne Rustica and Carbonara were just right. I always suggest this place to anyone visiting Denver because Odyssey always delivers. Every time.

    The new owners have maintained the same delicious food that the former owners provided. Our server was friendly, attentive and efficient despite the restaurant being short staffed and the temperature in the place well over 80 degrees. The environment in summer is unbearable! We dined in an upstairs dining room that appeared to have a small, filthy, 1970's window unit air conditioner. The temperature in the room was likely around 90 degrees making for a horrible evening and unpleasant experience. We certainly won't be back until the winter. Who wants to spend $`100 for dinner and go home dripping in sweat?

    Very disappointed in the food. My lamb shank was bland and the service was slow. The grated cheese bowl was passed from table to table and we were crammed at a table near a metal shelf for pick up orders. The food came out very fast so it was pretty evident that it was reheated. Would not recommend.

    As for the food, this is one of the best places in town. Everything was fresh and delicious. The restaurant itself is incredibly, dirty, cramped, and run down; all of which could be addressed if they chose to do so.

    We were super excited about our first visit here. We have heard nothing great things about The Odyssey since we moved here and had been dying to try. Sadly, so many things happened during our visit that made it less than enjoyable. First, we had a reservation and we arrived the hostess said the table wasn’t ready and we could have a drink at the bar. We didn’t care but it ended up taking over 30 minutes to get our table which was disappointing. Overall, all service with waitstaff was slow but we thought maybe it’s supposed to be a relaxing experience or something so we tried ignoring it. While we were waiting for our table we had purchased a bottle of wine and the hostess said she would make sure to bring our bottle to table. We had been sitting forever and our bottle never showed up. We told our waiter we had purchased one and still nothing. My husband ended up leaving his seat to go ask the bartender for the remaining bottle so we could actually refill our glasses. The waiter said he drank at all which didn’t add up. We had one glass of wine each and he gave us a small top off before we sat down. This didn’t make any sense. After that we just gave up and were very frustrated. I ordered my entree and 10 min later the waiter came.

    Not good, salad brought out was wrong, food was wrong (ordered shrimp and they brought out chicken). We finished the one meal while we waited for them to bring the shrimp meal out, water never got refilled even once, told us he was going to bring bread and never brought the bread. Overall very poor service.
