Santeramo's Pizza House & Italian Food

Established in 1962. Santeramo's Pizza House & Italian Food is named in honor of the Santeramo family. Michael Santeramo and his wife Cathrine emigrated from Italy. They had 5 children. Lawrence, the oldest of the five, married June in 1942. In 1962, Santeramo's Pizza in Greeley, Colorado was established. Lawrence and June ran a successful restaurant for many years, until Lawrence's untimely death in 1968. June continued operating the restaurant and made numerous friends and loyal customers, until her retirement in 1987. In 2008, Mike Santeramo (youngest child of Lawrence and June) and his son, Jorden Santeramo re-opened the doors to Santeramo's Pizza House & Italian Food, a family restaurant of generations and have been able to do so because of their famous family recipes. At Santeramo's Pizza House & Italian Food, you're the guest, you'll feel right at home!

We order Santeramo's through OrderUp, and LOVE to get their bucket of spaghetti with meatballs. It is LITERALLY a bucket (think 1/2 gallon of ice cream size) and the meatballs are homemade and the size of your hand. All of this would not be worth it though, if it was not ALSO DELICIOUS!

when we are choosing where to dine. We have eaten here three or four times and have always been disappointed. My husband ordered clam chowder on our last visit and it was the runniest/thinnest clam chowder we had ever seen. We asked our server about it and she said it was from the bottom of the pot. Yuck. She offered to bring us a fresh bowl from the fresh pot but we declined.

Texas Roadhouse

Reviewed By pulsefire - Mechanicsburg

One thing about the Texas Roadhouse chain...you can always count on getting a meal that would be considered, at worst, pretty darn good. This one seems to be a bit better than the average. Had to order takeout because the place was jammed, but that's no big deal. Ribs were falling off the bone tender, flavor was definitely there, side dishes were excellent, portion size was great, and all this at a reasonable price. Can't say anything about the service because it was a take out order but the dining room and kitchen crew were definitely hustling. The young lady I dealt with at the takeout desk was friendly, courteous, knowledgeable and prompt. Would definitely recommend it.

Cranford Cove Tea Tavern

Now serving coffee and espresso! Giving one of the world's oldest and most popular beverages a new voice in Weld County, Cranford Cove Tea Tavern introduces it's take on the tea house with its downtown Greeley location, which opened to the public on November 29th, 2013 at 823 10th St., Greeley. The concept's name is derived from the owner's love of the sea, the historic Greeley neighborhood of Cranford, and the fact that the establishment is a tea house, an acoustic music venue, AND a full bar. With 80 to 90 varieties of loose leaf, owners Aaron and Sarah Wooten focus on a unique and thoughtful selection of teas spanning the globe, ranging from loose cured leaf varieties, iced teas on tap, and fruit and herb-infused custom creations. Tea is served in the tavern and sold retail by the ounce for steeping at home. We also sell tea cups, pots, and other steepware. Cranford Cove offers various tea services for individuals or groups, complete with paninis, scones and pastries. The design for Cranford Cove can best be described as Art Deco meets plantation, where old-school tea has a modern edge. The space has high ceilings and features multiple seating options from table seating to bar seating. In the summer we provide a few tables for outdoor patio seating. "This is definitely not your grandmother's tea house - after water, tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world and we intend to present the best quality and most interesting single varietals and blends available," explained Aaron Wooten. "We also serve unique tea-infused cocktails, local crafted beer, and have an ever-expanding wine list designed to fit any palate. We also support the local music scene," he continued, "on almost any night you can experience local jazz from the world-renowed UNC program, local singer-songwriters, blues or salsa from artists up and done the front range playing live in the tea tavern." With almost 90 varieties, Cranford Cove offers an extensive selection of teas meant to deliver a rich and varied experience.

Today my husband and I ate here.I was highly recommended on trip advisor. Hummm,
I feel I was misled. The sandwich was good, however the portions were small. You don't get much for your money. Everything seemed to be an additive, : (
Service was good. However don't think I will come back They had to email the receipt so we didn't get to see the charges till we got home.

This used to be our favorite restaurant in Northern Colorado. After changing chefs and recipes the place has declined. One of the outstanding items that used to be on the menu was collard greens - these have been eliminated. Also, one of the items that received very favorable comments, the cedar planked salmon with bourbon glaze, has been replaced with some kind of poorly cooked salmon served over a strange tasting risotto. The new brussel sprouts that I think replaced the collards were undercooked and swimming in some kind of Chile sauce that completely overwhelmed the flavor. They are obviously trying for some kind of new, infused menu but it isn't working. The heavy vinegar taste in the blue cheese dressing doesn't work! The most disappointing decline is in the quality of the crème brulee! It may be the same recipe (I don't know) but it is certainly NOT the same taste and texture as it used to be.
The owner used to be there most of the times we were and the place ran like a swiss watch. The last 2 times we were that he was not present and it was not the same place.
It has gone from our favorite place to eat (at least once a month) to just another restaurant. The beef is still good but not worth it with the decline in everything else. I doubt that we will go back.

Pellegrini Ristorante Italiano

Reviewed By Matt S

My wife and I have ate here several times and have always enjoyed the food. My usual go to appetizer and entree is the calamari and the gnocchi. Again, always good. The only reason I am not giving Pellegrini's a excellent rating is because of the service. Sometimes it is okay, and other times it is not. I get that the waiters and waitresses are college kids, but they still have a job to do. I would say that about every other time we go there, we have an issue with the service for one reason or an other. The other times the service will be good. We will however continue to eat there on an occasional basis because we love the food. If they could get some consistency in the service department I would definitely bump my rating up to excellent.

Though the Pie, ANY Pie, still 'Knocks It Outta The Park' here.... Sadly, from our point of view... the rest of the experience seems to have waned over the years. Service, while energetic and sufficient, is young and untrained, requiring numerous requests (and re-requests), and causing missing and omitted items. The 'Signature' Monte Cristo seems a little pedestrian now....Four globs of fried bread with meat & cheese.. gone is the classic presentation, the fine dusting of powdered sugar, and we had to request the jam. This night also brought us Chef's Salad that had no personality, color, or presentation. And our order of (once famous) potato skins, was assembled with the charm and grace of an anxious juggler.... We just hope that "Fat's" hasn't given up.

We love a good steakhouse. This one was okay. Portions were small. Flavor was okay, and cooked well, but not high quality. Old fashioned wood paneling and booths - like an upscale Dennys. Want table cloths and candles? Not here. Big and delicious steaks? Not here. But otherwise a decent a steak place with reasonable prices and good service.

This restaurant is next to the Fairfield Inn, a convenient walk. Plenty of TV's if you want to watch (not interested) and the place was very busy on a Thursday night.

My ice tea glass was kept full by my server Alex and I ordered the Mediterranean Farmer pizza without onions. When it came to my table: no onions! Perfect. Very tasty beer ale crust and lots of veggies. Happy to return.

Visited here with a friend and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a proper, authentic American diner, staffed by friendly, attentive people who love interacting with diners. The food is standard diner fare and is excellent at that. A must-visit if you're in Greeley and you want a taste of America.
