Boulder is a college town, and a lot of the patrons are students, so the portions are more than generous, and the food itself is not special, more like comfort food, but tasty enough. I think I would have preferred to have the option of small or even a 1/2 portions. Lunch this afternoon was unhurried, and not crowded, server... More

Went visiting and was recommended here. I was thoroughly pleased, the food was amazing the wait staff was excellent even when I spilled my water everywhere. The view was my favorite part looking out to the mountains which are a spectacular.

We have eaten dinner here many times, always very good. We ate lunch here on Easter Sunday and it was somewhat disappointing. This place is usually packed, but today it was mostly empty (other joints on Pearl St. were quite busy). We shared a Caesar's salad, the dressing on which was hardly discernible. We shared a sausage pizza. The sausage... More

We've always enjoyed pasta jays the only real problem is the wait. They won't seat incomplete parties and are prone to underestimating the wait times. I enjoyed the lobster Mac and cheese last time and would go back for it

For a place being completely packed on a cold monday night it left me perplexed. Service was horrible, seating is cramped they had a bar but did not have a knowledgeable bar tender. The food I was served (Pasta Madeline) had absolutely NO seasoning. The chicken was way over cooked and had the appearance of being boiled. It also had... More

Fun Italian restaurant. The owner has taken pride in the staff and they are all super friendly. Expect them ALL to say goodbye as you leave:) The Italian food is terrific. My husband's favorite place in the neighborhood. He kept telling about the eggplant dish he had two weeks in a row. I finally had a chance to go on... More
