Went with my two friends for a late night dinner after traveling. Service was great, drinks and food were everything we wanted and needed. I’d definitely go back here anytime.

Waited 10 minutes to talk to hostess.
Dining room was way too hot. Please air conditioning!!!
Nobody wants to eat pasta when they’re too hot.

Had not been to Sforno in many years, yet see it highly rated online so we were intrigued. Sadly, while the food was “good” and would possibly be considered “very good” elsewhere, Boulder is competitive and Sforno just misses the mark. Especially at it’s prices.

From the ridiculously small soup spoon, the lovely pomodoro laid in soggy oily bread, the scantly covered, (but gorgeous looking) pizza that was either a bit too thick or slightly under baked, everything is in place to work, but it doesn’t, quite. Caesar salad dressing was delish, the romaine a bit weathered. Kind of a cool indoor Roman courtyard feel to the room with fountain and rustic ambience, but you’re sitting on rock hard wooden seats, not conducive to lingering. You get the picture.

We had meat entrees and it wasn't very good. The meat was tough and flavor muddy. I would have pasta there if I were to try again. Wine was drinkable but not memorable. We felt rushed.

Our sunburned server was an absolute delight. The four of us ate outside under a roof and enjoyed the appetizers and pizza. Great people watching and many passersby envied our selections.

Sat on the patio under the canopy, with heaters on just enough to calm the chill. Food was great and arrived fairly quickly after ordering.

4 out of 5 of our party all got sick after dinner. This was not only horrible because all of our nights ended in such a sad way, but it was the first time my parents had gone out in over a year because of COVID and this was their experience. The staff responded to me letting them know by saying it couldn’t be them since our symptoms would have started 4-5 days later. I went to dinner with my parents, boyfriend and brother, we all come from different households and met for dinner so there is no way we all could have gotten it from something else. I just wish they would have cared more especially since our tab was so big.

Our family of seven got together for Mother’s Day lunch. We had a reservation. They seated us at a table that my parents were not happy with so the manager went ahead and accommodated our request to be seated at a different table. My parents are high risk and we are very grateful that we could be moved to a different location. The food was excellent. I haven’t had this authentic of Italian food since visiting Boston’s north end. I am very happy with the food, service and ambiance! I will definitely visit them again.

Our server was outstanding, he was attentive, fast and courteous. The food was great we ordered salads and chicken parmigiana to share, it was really rich, but well-prepared. My issue is with the lack of mask wearing. The owner/manager repeatedly had his mask around his chin while yelling directions at his staff. There was another server who all frequently had his mask under his nose. I get it, they're probably vaccinated but if they don't care enough to wear masks properly in front of guests, then what is going on behind the scenes. Is it clean? Are they doing things to keep their guests safe?

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.
