This is a pleasant little
This is a pleasant little spot with outdoor seating ON the 16th Street walking mall that offers tasty Italian dishes with minimum fuss and attentive service. We have had several fine dinners there before shows at The Boulder Theater, which is about a block away. Good find.

Trattoria was a very good
Trattoria was a very good restaurant but I'm not sure how experienced the staff is. My wife and I went there and we were seated at the bar section although there were a lot of remaining tables in the dining area, but my wife chose to stay so she could watch the entertainment on Pearl St. If there was a special, we didn't know what it was nor was it offered or described. There is a daily fish plate that was never mentioned. The food was very good, but it was extremely saucy with side dishes that had little to offer to make use of the sauces.
I may be generous in stating "very good overall" but it certainly was above average. I would go back to give it another try.

Great food, wine, people watching
Trattoria on Pearl is a great restaurant for small to medium groups. The food is incredible, with cioppino as our favorite. It has a generous selection of seafood in a spicy tomato broth, served with a side of spaghetti alla olio. The have a very good wine list which includes tasting flights for the adventurous, three wines of a region in smaller portions for comparisons. The location is right on the Pearl Street mall, with an outdoor dining area for people watching. The noise level is moderate in the main room and low in the front room, allowing for good conversation during dinner.

We used a Living Social deal
We used a Living Social deal for lunch and were very pleased with the experience. Wish it would have been a warmer day and we could have sat outside! The appetizer menu is great and the salad choices were amazing. All in all it was a great experience. For a Sunday afternoon it was rather dead inside so I hope that is not a sign they are not doing well.

They had our table ready and we were a little early. The food was outstanding, we had a group of five and everyone was happy with their meal. Service was wonderful and the chef came out to greet us afterwards. They were all very gracious and we will definitely go back! Would recommend this restaurant to all my friends.

Homemade bread alone is worth it
Fantastic homemade bread, great authentic Italian dishes, and a location on the Pearl Street Mall.

Great food and great atmosphere.
Great food and great atmosphere. The service was decidedly lacking, the server didn't seem too thrilled to be serving two college age kids. She must have assumed we wouldn't tip. That was frustrating, but otherwise the experience was a good one.

Good food, slightly overpriced....
Great food, I think it's only slightly overpriced. Still great and totally worth it (boulder's always overpriced)....

Family in from out of town.
A cousin was in from out of town with his daughter that is going to be a freshman at CU. We sat outside, and not only was the service great and the food delicious, there was a group on the mall playing classical music. We had a wonderful dining experience.

We dined on the patio and enjoyed the music from the performers on the mall. A beautiful setting with excellent service from the hostess to our waiter (Anibal). The wine was perfect and the lasagna was very good.

Love this "true Italian" trattoria!
The closest taste of Italy in Boulder. I've been to Italy 3 times. Great food, great service, great ambience!

Great al fresco dining on the mall.
Try the Bruschetta al Salmone. It's very good. People watching from the outdoor patio brings back images from the old Zap comics. It's pretty entertaining.

Drinks, Dinner and Dessert it was all fantastic. The chef even came out to check on our dinners and see how we were enjoying ourselves. Our server was also fantastic, I would highly recommend this restaurant.

I've always loved eating at Trattoria on Pearl, though I didn't realize how authentic and fresh it really was until my husband and I spent three weeks in Italy in May 2013. How incredible to be able to relive our trip simply by eating at Trattoria on Pearl! This restaurant is also fabulous for group parties and the staff goes out of their way to be accommodating. We absolutely love this restaurant :)

We had a great experience
We had a great experience at Trattoria, the food was very tasty, the flavors delicate and exquisite. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. Everything in a relaxed sort of way, without being overpowering.

Great Restaurant overall
Great food and service. Great outdoor seating on pearl. Hostess and indoor seating smelled a bit off but hoping its not all the time.

Good for low budget
My boyfriend and I went here for a date night. We were looking for something a little inexpensive that we could enjoy. It was very quaint and the food was pretty good. We really enjoyed our time here and got all three courses for about $30/person
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good was pretty good and prices were great for happy hour. As with alot of boulder establishments in boulder waitstaff was subpar but i being in food service im probably over critical.

Great Date Place
My wife and I have been to Trattoria a few times, and every time we are astounded with how good the food is. The gnochi here is always unbelievably good, and the servers were able to suggest a wine that went extremely well with our meal. Overall, Trattoria has all the components for a good date. A relaxed atmosphere, good food, good service, and good wine if you want it.

The perfect Trattoria... plus!
We've been to Italy several times and this wonderful restaurant epitomizes the traditional trattoria. We look forward to dining at this terrific restaurant for that very reason. The owners and staff exude warmth and hospitality--- they welcome you like old friends into their home. The trattoria's freshly made delicious breads, pastas, tantalizing antipasti, delicious entrees and luscious desserts are expertly prepared and consistently great. Combine the delicious fare, fine wines, genuine warmth, smiles and attention to detail and you have a perfectly trattoria--- with gourmet food--- right here in Boulder, CO!

First Bite Gem
The special menu for First Bite is excellent. Lobster Diablo and Osso Bucco are a treat. Salad was excellent and the Gelato-Chocolate Dessert was dreamy!

Restaurant week success.
This was our first time at Trattoria. We went with friends to try it out during restaurant week. We loved it every course was great, and the wine pairings were spot on. We will definitely go again.

A group of four of us went
A group of four of us went for a First Bite Boulder dinner. We were all very happy with our food and service. It was a slow
night but we enjoyed the ambience and friendly and helpful staff. We will return.

Hadn't been to Trattoria for several years. Went for First Bite Boulder. Food was excellent. Choices were very nice. Told the waiter we had an event to attend and told him the time. It obviously didn't matter to him. He kept re-stocking glasses at the bar. Had to approach him to get our dessert as we needed to leave.

Boulder First Bites
Visited Trattoria on Pearl for first time. First Bites menu looked good.
Got the avocado soup and fondue to start. Both were delicious and at a good temperature which can make or break a soup.
The entrees were quite substantial portions. I got the shrimp & lobster fra Diavola and my husband got the oso bucco. The lobster was still in the shell, half a tail and claw. I didn't expect that much meat for a discounted dinner.
Desserts were also substantial and tasty. The coffee was singly made from expresso. It doesn't get any better than that!
The wait staff was very attentive and accommodating. Generously offering more bread even before we asked.
We were thus surprised that the place was so empty on a Saturday night,especially a First Bites.
