    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.

    Very cute place! And the food is five star! The service is also excellent! Not a place for a romantic dinner, however, as it is family friendly. So if there are kids in the house - well it's noisy. But overall a wonderful dinner

    We made a reservation but were seated outside in the sun, which was definitely not our preference. The poor seating environment really influenced our experience. The service was quick, and the servers were friendly. The food was ok but definitely not special. Children’s portions were huge - we wish we had known and could have ordered less, as they were expensive and as travelers, we didn’t really want to deal with the tons of leftovers that we ended up with. Overall, food was quite expensive for what we got, and the ambiance was not great.

    This was the second time we have eaten there. The food was good but better the first time, but we made a couple of chancy calls for our tastes on entrees this time which made the difference. Still very good though. Our server was excellent. Very attentive, knowledgeable, and cordial.

    We went to dinner to celebrate my husband's birthday. The hostess was very thoughtful in helping us decide where to sit so that the temperature would be okay and the noise not too loud. We sat just inside the patio where we had a great view of Pearl Street Mall. Our waitress Kendall was very personable and attentive. She kept the pace of service just right, so that we had a relaxing meal. The food was excellent and the kitchen did a great job of splitting both our salad and our entre. We would definitely go back.

    This is a solid Italian restaurant. I went with two friends who were in town for the evening. Our server was great - he checked on us frequently until things gone super busy. Then he apologized for not checking as often as he had before. I had the bolognese and it was ok. The sauce was a bit sweet for my liking. My friends had the spaghetti and meatballs (which was very good!) and the bucatini (which was also very good!). We also had salads that were underdressed but fresh and a good combo of ingredients. We had dessert - the chocolate fudge cake and tiramisu. Both were good - the only thing I would have left off was the Hershey’s syrup that was squirt all over everything. For me, that killed the desserts. So unless you like Hershey’s chocolate syrup, ask them to leave it off.

    The food is their saving grace. We were seated in decrepit patio furniture! We swapped chairs as soon as the table next to us left. Our waiter forgot about us several times, including forgetting to bring a glass of wine, missed clearing our table of appetizers, bread, and plates prior to trying to serve our entrees, and forgetting to bring us new silverware after taking our originals when he did clear our appetizer plates. At least the food was very good.

    The restaurant is in a good location on the Pearl Street Mall in Boulder, but this is the only good thing about this restaurant. The seating is uncomfortable, the dining areas are loud, the food is mediocre, and it is way overpriced given the quality of the dining. Avoid it if you can.

    Second time in. So happy we discovered.Food was excellent; I had the Gnocchi which some of the beat I’ve had and my wife really enjoyed her Shrimp Scampi (?). Nice wine program. The Livio Felluga Pinot Grigio that waiter James recommended with the yummy Fritto Misto was excellent. Service professional and personal. Sat on the patio! Ready to come back again!
