Salty overpriced food. Waiter was flip and uninterested in us. Noisy and chaotic. Won’t be back.
Crowded. Next table practically touching us.
great patio for watching the people on the mall, enjoyed the appetizers and meals as well.
Our waiter hurried us through our meal. Yes, it was a busy night but we had a reservation and deserved ample time to enjoy our meal. He made it clear we needed to dine quickly so they could turn our table.
Do not get the grilled artichoke appetizer. 3 people sent it back twice. Way too hard!
The food was fair and very salty!
Excellent food and service. Definitely a place worth visiting multiple times.
The food was delicious and our waitress was excellent. My only complaint was that it was very warm in the restaurant.
Out to dinner with my wife. We had a great time, food was awesome. The buffalo shank was amazing.
We are big fans of garlic, but not when it hits you like a ton of bricks, as it did in the bruschetta. It was really all we could taste and was so overpowering we could only tolerate a few bites before we had to stop eating it. Similarly, the rotolo was one-note as well, tasting predominantly of oregano. The lasagna was mediocre - might as well heat up a Stouffers. Disappointing, as we had taken our college-age daughter and her housemate out for dinner with the hopes that they would bring leftovers back to eat during the week, but we did not take anything with us. It’s a shame too, because ambience and service were good. We will not be returning.
Great food! Charcuterie appetizer for 4 people was great! Lobster ravioli was the best that I have had. We definitely will be going back again!
There was no air conditioning and it was stifling hot. The kitchen was slammed so food took way too long.
Everything but Italian!!!
We think the waiter was over worked. Our food came out cold, he kept forgetting our drinks and to bring a napkin out. We love this place overall thiugh
Brought my family here because I had come once before when I was touring Boulder for school and they loved it just as much as I did. Great food, nice employees, and a good ambiance. right on pearl street!
Low quality. Sat next to a fountain that splattered on us all dinner.
It was an authentic Italian experience! The staff were knowledgeable and engaging to ensure we all had an unforgettable experience. The original Italian dishes were fresh, creative , delicious, and authentic. The wine selection was exquisite. We were visiting from out of town and were absolutely enchanted by Sforno Trattoria!
A Disneyland view of what Rome might look like for someone who has never left America. Decent but not great food. Boulder has better to offer.
Food was good, service was excellent. When I’m back out west I will be visiting again.
I told the waitress I was allergic to dairy and she helped me choose a dish with no dairy listed. The dish came out covered in cheese... By the time my next meal came out (without cheese) my friend's meal was cold.
The restaurant was lovely. I loved the true Italian feel to the decor. The servers were very attentive and the food was amazing!! It is hard to get eggplant right and it was cooked to perfection. We are visiting from Florida or this would become my new favorite restaurant!
Food was fantastic. We actually left an Italian restaurant down the street because we didn’t like anything on the menu. The garlic chicken pasta I had was soooo good and the outdoor patio during Wednesday night music was great. My only complaint would be that the seating was pretty tight.
The restaurant was a little warm.
But it did not affect our overall experience. Service was great, food delicious, and brought out quickly! Will definitely return!
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 😋
What a wonderful place to enjoy passersby and delicious, unique dishes. Happy hour is fantastic! Definitely going back!
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..
