    Good food, but service was lacking as well as ambiance. My husband did not even have a normal chair to sit in, was patio chair that was falling apart. For the price, I feel there are many more options that I would/will select with better service and atmosphere.

    I haven’t felt so much like I was back in Italy as eating here. Unique (in the U.S.) and delicious takes on Italian dishes, some of which are hard to find here. The only complaint is that the space is hard to navigate with a slightly larger body. But…it’s Boulder, after all.

    My wife and I had dinner at Sforno as part of Boulder's First Bite promotion. After reviewing a number of First Bite menus from various participating restaurants, Sforno's had one of the most impressive selections and value for our tastes. We chose the braised lamb shanks with linguine, sea scallops, and tiramisu. I was expecting bits of lamb combined with the linguine; instead we were delighted with the full shank being served with linguine on the side. It was more than we could eat, and delicious. The three course meal was a bargain at $40 per person. This was the third time that we had dined at Sfornos, and each experience has been rewarding. We are definitely going to be back soon!

    The ambiance was great with both indoor and outdoor seating. It was a busy night and the staff was scrambling but as a result service was a little slow. The food was great. I had the lamb shank and my wife had the trout. I definitely recommend the Brussels sprouts.

    Immediate, efficient service…but when food comes out too fast you wonder…and not surprisingly the pasta and lasagna were like freezer section microwaveable…fine, but forgettable. Many better options for food quality but if speed is your goal this is a good option.

    We stopped overnight in Boulder to take our two college grandchildren out to dinner. We picked and Italian restaurant, because fo their menu, because we were not sure what the young people liked to eat. Who does not like Italian food? Three of us picked meat dishes. All of them were tough, overcooked and overly seasoned. The Scampi dish was good. It was a Sunday night and they were extremely busy which probably accounted for the poor service. There were multiple tables of young women and what young male waiter wouldn’t pay more attention to them than to us? That was very understandable but disappointing. If the food hadn’t been so poor that would have been more acceptable. There was some sort of fall festival going on in town which is probably why the restaurant was so busy but the noise level inside made conversation difficult. We were not happy with our choice of restaurant.
