Shells and Sauce

2600 East 12th Avenue
Denver, CO
(303) 377-2091

Once you get past the awkward entrance, through the crowded tables, and around the surly looks of the staff, Shells and Sauce makes for a great dinning experience.

The room is warm, albeit crammed with tables and the food is great.
The kids menu has the usual suspects with a few additional pasta entries like raviolis. The lobster ravioli was a big favorite with a rich creamy sauce and the seafood cioppino was a good take on a classic. There is an ever changing menu of small plates written casually (and in Italian)on the chalkboard in back.

Truly a neighborhood place and like any good neighbor- gritty on the outside but worth knowing about underneath.
