    Had been here many times before but not recently. The food has gone way down. The 3 item appetizer was embarrassingly small; the supposed tiger shrimp were these tiny salad shrimp from the freezer. Pizza was not good and that was after we waited forever to get it. Hardly saw our waiter. It's a shame but won't be back. I brought 2 people from out of town and they could not understand why I had thought this was a good place to dine. Oops

    Most recently had a late lunch with a friend, all of our food was delicious. Service keeps a close eye but doesn't hover. Menu has seasonal changes but stays reasonably the same over many years. That said, it still is never boring! I have enjoyed dinners here with spouse, dinner with other couples, group of 30 for Sunday lunch birthday celebration and am alway pleased. BYO with limited but interestiong drinks offered.

    When you go to Trat Bolu, you can't go wrong. Their food is fresh and imaginative, and obviously prepared with great pride. Regardless of reason, be it a quick dinner or a celebration, I highly recommend this place.

    I am in love with this place! the atmosphere is wonderful, very unique menus (on clipboards) and glasses are repurposed mason jars! the food is AMAZING, especially the almogrote that is served with the bread before your meal. I swear I could eat it alone as a meal. You can go all out with a full Italian dish, or if you're feeling simple, a salad or brick oven pizza. They have a variety of options to satisfy your taste buds!! Plus, all the servers are super friendly and helpful!!

    We all enjoyed our meals but hated waiting an hour for an appetizer and 90 minutes for pizza. The restaurant was not packed so there was really no excuse. The staff did apologize a few times and gave us free dessert, but at that stage all we wanted to do was go home.

    Food selections are always delicious. Some disappointments when the specials are gone or the figs are not on the menu- the figs are by far a high note. Great music vibe, fit for the age of the diners. The value in the food options does not translate to drinks. $3.00 soda and $4.00 iced tea is just wrong, so Byob, and spend on the excellent salads and breads.

    After all the years we have been going here we are never disappointed. The creative pizza special this past weekend was awesome. Check out the Facebook page. My wife had the arugula pizza which is always on the menu but this turns out to be a new favorite of ours. We can not say enough about the friendly service. We always feel right at home. You can't go wrong wit Bolu!

    The word is getting out fast. Trattoria Bolu is one of the best kept secrets in town. The food and service is great. We can never pass up one of their brick oven pizzas not to mention the tuna arugula salad. Specials are always something not to miss. So many really good choices. Check out what's on the special Friday nights on their Facebook page! You just can't go wrong!

    You can have a great 3 course meal for well under 50$ a person. Excellent brick oven pizzas and crisp and over sized salads. It's casual and well priced.
