Colorado Lamb Meatball Sandwich

Colorado Lamb Meatball Sandwich

As promised, I made a 2nd lunch trip to Pesce Fresco in Greenwood Village.  Again, let me tell you that I LOVE that restaurant.  The atmosphere is elegant and cozy, the wait staff accomplished and attentive and the food excellently crafted.

Bob and I made the anticipated lunch date, studied the menu, and then odered nothing we had pre-planned!  HA   Doesn’t matter, I’m convinced everything is good. 

Bob ordered the Ricotta Gnocchi

Artichokes, asparagus, ricotta gnocchi in a “loaded with flavor” broth which we think was lemon based with basil and a distinct garlic feel.  YUM

I ordered the Colorado Lamb Meatball Sandwich.  I don’t even know where to begin on what was the best part about that open-faced sandwich.  The menu describes the bread as a “hoagie”.  I’ve never had that good a “hoagie”.  The bread was fab.  Pomodora Sauce:  some sort of Aoili?  What ever it was, it was delicious.  I’m pretty picky about my lamb; those meatballs were savory.  Topped with melted mozarella cheese and sweet cherry tomatoes, a side of Caprese salad, and pickled olives, peppers and carrot. 

My plate was so clean, I hope the dishwasher knew it had been used. 

Love Pesce Fresco.  Make plans and go.

  1. I am fantasizing about the lamb meatballs and caprese and now know what I’m picking up at the grocery today. YUMMY!

  2. It was really really good. I’ve searched for a Pomodora Sauce and found a couple. They also had aioli as a dressing on the bread. Not sure I could duplicate it exactly, but I’m sure gonna try! 😉

  3. Great review, I’ve been meaning to try this place for a while, now I have some real motivation! Thanks!

    • It can be a little pricey – be prepared.
