Great place to go with a date, friends, or family. Nice outdoor dining option and the food is really awesome! Good all-around value on trendy Pearl St.
We had a very nice time. The restaurant is very nice. Cozy and romantic. We shared a Arugula Salad and then each had the Spaghetti Frutti Di Mare, a mix of salmon, scallops and shrimp in a spicy tomato wine sauce. Delicious 😋
We had a great dinner after a long day. They have a good wine selection and we loved the basil pesto! We will be back for sure:)
Our waiter and food were excellent!
They did not have our table for 5 and tried to make shift with 2 tables together that did not work, then with another wait finally moved us to really nice table outdoors part.
The inside was very noisy but fun and great atmosphere 👍
We had a wonderful lunch at Sforna and we felt transported to Italy. The food was wonderful and our waiter was excellent!
I love Sforno and eat there regularly. My favorite Italian restaurant in Boulder.
Met a girlfriend for happy hour. The waitstaff was excellent, food was amazing, and the restaurant itself is rustic and charming. Will definitely be back!
Loved the ambiance. Food was fantastic. Will definitely go again the next trip to Colorado.
Table was located at the edge of the inside allowing great people watching on the PearlStreet mall. Service was mixed - quick attention with menus and bread and bottles of water then mostly absent after meal was served. Bread was toasted and tasty. Roasted artichoke was good, although still 'choky' at the heart. Pasta Sforna was enjoyed by husband who had also added some fried pancetta. My Eggplant (mezaluna) parm was mushy and really greasy - I left most of it. So mixed review. Like many places in Boulder It depends.
We made a reservation on OpenTable for lunch this past Saturday. We requested an outdoor table. When we arrived, we were told that the last outdoor table was just given away? I asked, why ask for special requests when it seemed to us like no one read it? I was offered an apology. "We should have a table for 2 shortly. Why not walk around a bit and come back in 15 to 20 min and one should then be available. If one becomes free, sooner, I'll call you." Fine. We left, walked around and then. came back 20 min later to discover that several tables outdoors were given away. No one called. Very, very poor service!!!
This restaurant is our go to place on the Pearl Street Mall in Boulder. Homemade pasta and other flavorful dishes are simply divine. We took a friend there who had lived in a small Italian village for a year and she commented that Sforno's food was very similar to what she experienced in Italy. Worth trying!
loved the trout and the appetizers are great. they’re happy to change any dish or add protein to pasta dishes.
Excellent service and ambiance. Food average, especially for price. Would go again.
Go somewhere else. Pasta Sforno (signature dish) was a joke. A small bowl of cheesy pasta for $19? Wife tried the Pizza Aglio E Olio and it was pizza dough with olive oil smeared on top, cooked, with arugula on top - $18. Puny glasses of wine... get me out of here! Leave this to the unsuspecting tourists on the Pearl Street Mall.
Great place for day before BOLDERBoulder
Appetizers were just the right size, the shrimp scampi was awesome in the spicy olive oil.
All the pasta were good size portion (if you order the full portion).
Best of all, everything tasted amazing..
Great service from wait staff and terrific entrees and overall experience
Perhaps the best Veal Saltimbocca I've ever had - and a generous portion!
There is plenty of competition among restaurants in the Boulder, and several excellent Italian spots to choose from. Sforno Trattoria is our favorite. We have been there twice in the last month and both times the food and service were great. Our last visit was Mothers Day and the specials for that occasion were particularly enjoyable. We had the sea bass and halibut dishes and shared them. They were both so tasty neither of us could decide which was better - they both tied for first place. In thpast we've more traditional Italian dishes like chicken parm, marsala, and shrimp scampi. You can't go wrong. Highly recommended.
We had an early Mother's Day dinner at Sforno. The service was top rate, courteous, and quick. It felt like we were in another country (Italy). Everything was fresh, hot, and served promptly. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
I would call the noise level too noisy to talk rather than energetic (it was graduation, but it was the same last time we were there). We had a group of 13 which I think was too much for our waiter. He carded my son 4 times before he served him any drink I think. The food was very good and came out quickly. We will always make your restaurant one of our stops each visit. Overall very good. I like the calls I got to confirm our rsv.
Charming, cozy, extensive menu, great service. This was our choice for college graduation celebration and it could not have been better. Even filled with a dozen large family groups, staff was attentive, personal and calm. Ranging from panini to specialty pastas the food was perfectly prepared, generous portions, arrived quickly. Prices are reasonable. The restaurant made us remember our favorite in Venice. A delight to which we'll return.
The food, service an entire experience was wonderful. It is an intimate and pleasant place.
Ordered the fish special and the fish was bad!
Excellent dining experience
Delicious food and ambience .i recommend it highly .
In town for CU Boulder Admitted Student Day and looked on Open Table for a place to eat. So glad we found Sforno. The restaurant is beautiful, the service was excellent and the food was amazing. We will be back in the fall.
Pasta was fresh & flavorful. The bread was delicious. Not one complaint.
Gnocchi dish pictured - added chicken. A++
Love the homemade dishes! Great caprese salad and delicious bread.
The space and ambiance is amazing! Feels like you're dining al fresco in Rome or something. The food was excellent as well- we had burrata, margherita pizza, and a wide pasta, and all were incredible. Service was a bit slow but good. Definitely would return!
The service and ambiance were very nice. And everyone at my table loved their dish except me. I had the eggplant Parmesan and unfortunately it was very soggy and overly salty. My minestrone soup was also extremely salty and had no pasta in it - which is required for minestrone. Maybe I just choose poorly. I may give them another try and order something different. My "special drink" was excellent.
Need to work on the cream brûlée. Otherwise, the food was great!
Excellent date night, family dinner, group dinner restaurant! Seriously, perfect for all occasions. Lighting is a little low, but contributes to the overall atmosphere of the place. Amazing lobster ravioli and pebble chicken pasta! Best canolli in town! Fast service and attentive waiter. Go try this local restaurant out !
We had a lovely experience! Our server was wonderful and very professional. The food was delicious! We love the ambiance there. It is a special place for us in that my husband and I actually met in that location almost 29 years ago when out to dinner with some friends when the restaurant was Morgan's. I don't remember much about Morgan's food but we were delighted when it became Antica Roma and we are thrilled that Sforno is so wonderful so that it continues to provide us with a great celebratory and delicious dining experience!!
Great food. Great service. I’ll be back!
Lobster was bad in the dish, waiter never came by to ask us how meal was and when we told him lobster was bad he took it away and never replaced it with a new one. They seated us in a crammed corner with no space to move and we could not hear a thing! 10/10 DO NOT RECOMMEND this restaurant there are many better ones in Boulder.
While service was very good, the pace was faster than I generally prefer. I like to have a little time between each course to relax and enjoy my wine.
This place was fantastic! The food presentation to the delicious combination of flavors. We will return. I highly recommend.
Lobster Ravioli is very good
If you like Italian food, this should be on your list. Recommend reservations, although when we arrived on-time, were told to wait in the bar. Took about 10 minutes to get seated. Bartender with the Mohawk needs to go back to bartending school. Doesn't acknowledge you when you arrive at the bar (there only were 2 other people at the bar who had already been served), he was surprisingly unfriendly, and not helpful. Recommend ordering via your server vs. the bar.
We were seated next to the fountain and the spray was... 'refreshing,' for lack of a better term, but I highly recommend Sforno. Our waitress was busy but overall, she did terrific managing our needs. Enjoy!
