Friday night date night

Excellent food in a nice atmosphere. You definitely need a reservation on Friday night or you are looking at an hour wait. Staff was friendly and attentive. We had Chicken Saltimbocca and Veal Parmigiana. Both were large servings and well prepared.

Good experience, very nice upscale Italian restaurant. We make a point of going to local restaurants when we travel and this was a great choice. The interior is very clean and modern, the food and service was first rate. My wife had the Carelli Bianco which was delicious. I had Chicken Parmigiana and both dishes were well prepared and flavorful.... More

We went here on a Monday night and the place was very busy and lively. Outside seating was not available because of the rain but the inside was very nice. Good wait staff and the meals were excellent. I had vegetable risotto and it was so delicious! Good wine and beer list. It's in a some-what unattractive strip mall but... More

We could not pass up the coupon in the Daily Camera celebrating 25 yrs in business. Buy 1 entree.....get 1 free, lunch only Monday-Friday until 7/17/15. The dining room was hopping......(did everyone else have a coupon)?. Ryan, our server brought homemade garlic bread. Because we don't eat bread at home, we went through the basket in no time and Ryan... More

Very nice restaurant on Baseline with good interior & patio dining. The chichen parm is very good, but everything was. Good size bar. I can see why the locals return time after time. And service was very good!

We eat here several times a year. Every menu item we have tried is first rate. The ambiance is very nice, quite upscale despite it's strip mall location. Very good service and fair prices for what you get. Good wine selection. Only minor issues might be the high noise levels and the fact that the tables are kind of close... More

I made a reservation for three on this evening, June 5. I have eaten here about a dozen times over a decade. Although the location is unassuming [corner of a strip mall], the service and food have always been uniformly excellent. The only reason I didn't award five stars is that sometimes the restaurant can be crowded and lively, and... More

Excellent food, good service, good price. This is one of my favorite places to eat in Boulder. I take my mom there often and a great place to go after games. The food is really good, the service is great.

I returned to this restaurant after several years. It still has some of the best food. The roasted olives were especially good as well as the garlic bread. We had the Fettuccine Alfredo and the Chicken Parmesan. The only thing I would not rank high was their salad. We especially enjoyed being in the back room. The music was playing... More
