Once upon a time in Louisville..


For over half a century diners from all along the Front Range have flocked to the tiny ex-coal-mining town of Louisville to feast on great food served in a welcoming, community-centered environment. This location, 816 Main Street, was once home to the legendary Colacci's Italian Restaurant. While the Empire is a New American Restaurant, it has drawn both culinary and community inspiration from it's Italian predecessor. The Empire is proud to play a vital role in renaissance of Main Street and Old Town Louisville.
