    This was hands down one of the most incredible Italian meals I’ve ever had anywhere. It’s a hidden gem in Boulder and well worth the money and time. Everything is seasoned so deliciously and the service is impeccable. The vibe is warm, inviting, comfortable and encourages you to relax and stay a while. The garlic bread is the best I’ve ever had, the drinks are great and the food is so amazing you’ll be back for more!

    JT, the bartender, was really nice. I got good service even though I’m a younger guy and I was in a college town. This place made me feel respected. Came here after a long hike. It was just the fuel I needed to get my body feeling right after pushing it on a big hike.

    This place was amazing. When we arrived we were told there was a long wait. We waited an hour and it was SO worth it!!! Being our anniversary night we were anticipating something sepcial. When we sat at our table they included pillows. Several of them. This was so welcoming. Also I'm not a usual fan of lemon water but this lemon water was so refreshing! Cindy our server was absolutely amazing and gave us several detailed suggestions of her favorite dishes. With this being our first time in we were torn between all of the options which included many vegetarian options as well. We went with the cheese plate and were surprised to pair truffle cheese with grapes and fresh and warmly toasted raisin bread. We got the kale soup which was super flavorful. And the minestrone was vegetarian as well. Entrees: we ordered salmon margherita with fresh pasta the salmon was perfectly cooked moist and full of texture and flavor. All though this was fantastic we also ordered tri colored tortillini and added 4 scallops.the scallops complimented this pesto pasta in every perfect way. I would highly reccomend this pairing with the scallops. We paired our entrees with a white riesling that was very light and, sweet and fruity Desert: we tried the banana rum crepe and paired it with amaretto this was served very fancy and was a filling desert to finish the date night.

    Had an absolutely amazing anniversary dinner! The wine was excellent and the food was even better; We started with a carpaccio, then an arugula salad + tri-color tortellini, and then finished with risotto funghi and salmon margherita.

    I don’t know if we keep trying the wrong things… but we’ve been here twice and each time one of us hated our dish. The first time I got the parmesan chicken, it was fairly bland and just not what you’d expect for $20. The second time we were craving italian and apparently Boulder has Carelli’s and Noodles & Company for options regarding italian. We decided to give it another go, but let me just say, stay far far away from the gnocchi. We love gnocchi and this was the weirdest version we’ve ever had. They were hard, not crispy, just hardened on the outside and they were served in broth? Truly strange, and by no means good. We were so close to sending it back because of how bad it was. We got the calamari both times, and the calamari was consistent and probably the saving grace to our meals. The service is decent too, but on a busy night you can feel forgotten about. The ambiance is also nice, but the food is very hit or miss. We’ll probably not be returning for awhile and will drive the extra 20 minutes to go to Olive Garden if we want italian.
