Good pizza, free parking
We were looking for somewhere to eat in Estes Park outside of the downtown area (we didn't have time to find parking), and there didn't appear to be many choices. We saw Village Pizza and I recognized that we had eaten there in the year 2000 and that we had liked it at our last visit 13 years ago.
The dining room is decorated with sports memorabilia, mostly pennants and pictures. The restaurant was relatively busy on the Sunday afternoon that we were there. The room was in serviceable condition and the atmosphere definitely called out "pizza place."
Katherine was disappointed that they didn't offer decaffeinated coffee. The waitress was very busy but she seemed to be keeping up well and was very efficient. Katherine ordered their salad bar ($4.29) which was a little high considering that she only got a small side salad. She felt that the bleu cheese offered on the salad bar really tasted more like ranch dressing. We both ordered water to drink.
We ordered a medium Florentino Pizza ($19.99) which had green olives (stuffed with pimiento), Kalamata olives, spinach, chicken, diced tomato and red onion, garlic, tomato sauce and cheese. We ordered it with the deep dish pan crust, which our server said was their best--and I think she was right.
The pizza was nice and cheesy and very flavorful. We both recommend it and would order it again. If we return, I'd like to try out some of their other specialty pizza flavors if they are as good as the Florentino.
Dinner came to $24.28 before tax and after adding tax and tip we spent $30.15.
