Iconic Dino’s Italian Food in Lakewood set to close in September
LAKEWOOD, Colo. — Dino’s Italian Food, a staple along West Colfax Avenue in Lakewood, will close its doors for good next month. The popular restaurant has been around since 1961. “It’s an emotional rollercoaster in a lot of ways,” said Judy Duren, the restaurant’s owner. Duren’s father, Dino DiPaolo, founded the eatery. The initial menu he created featured pizza, pasta and sandwiches — and pretty much has remained the same since.
