This is one of the best little secrets in Boulder. Define toy give it a try! A true small trattoria with 10 tables. Food is great, atmosphere is friendly, house wine is decent and prices are fair. Boulder has many "chic wannabe" Italian restaurants but...More

One of the best Italian places in Boulder, if not the best. Don't be fooled by the modest outside, the food and service is excellent. I love the lasagna, chicken parm, chicken piccata, and their salad. Great lunch buffet too if you get there during...More
