The linguine with clam sauce was as good as, if not the best, that I’ve ever had! The service was great, too! Overall, a wonderful experience dining on the iconic Pearl Street Mall!

Great music, relaxing patio, friendly & attentive service. The mussels, Brussel sprouts & buffalo osso bucco were excellent. Octopus very good although parts were tough.

The food and ambiance was outstanding! However, it was extremely loud at the time we were there. The service was very good... in fact, it was almost too good. We felt very rushed with our high spirited waiter.
I would recommend Sforno Trattoria every time when in Boulder!

Everything from entering the restaurant to leaving was excellent!!
Our server Frederico was amazing in all aspects of a good server.

The ambience, music and the decor made it seem like we were in Italy.

The appetizer was delicious and the entrees were fabulous, the pinot grigio excellent and the deserts were yummy!!

My son said his lasagna was very good and the service was great!
The GF options and wide variety of greens was a good draw for my son's mom, she loved it!

Overall very impressed with our entire dinning experience!
We will definitely come back and we will certainly be recommending Sforno Trattoria with our friends & family.

We thank Frederico and the chef for a wonderful evening!

Food was good. Service was very poor. Waiter never checked back on us, we had to call out for service every time we needed something. In the reservation I said that we were celebrating a birthday, but they did nothing to acknowledge it. Will not go back again.

The menu was very routine Italian; without any imagination. If that's what you want (and many do!) go for it. The wine list was very limited. My carpaccio was not fresh like it had been on the plate in the fridge a for long time.

Unfortunately the veal was tough and bland and the dessert creme brûlée was like warm pudding soup. The other pasta entrees were very good. Overall was a very disappointing experience for the price and I would not recommend this restaurant.

Enjoyed my first meal here with my husband and good friends. I requested a quiet table, which we got, in the room up front, but it was chilly as it was near the door. I thought our chairs were kind of hard and uncomfortable. Food was really good! We enjoyed cheese/meat plate and the avocado bruschetta, which was very flavorful. All seemed to enjoy their entrees. I thought our waiter was a little too perfunctory and brusque -- at times, it seemed like he barked at me when inquiring about the number of glasses we wanted with our bottle of wine, and when asking us where to put things on the small table -- as if it was our responsibility to figure out how to make room. Overall, we had a nice evening, and nearby diners chimed in on a happy birthday for my husband, which was celebratory. Thanks for a nice evening.
