pleasantly surprised

I was pleasantly surprised at the food and very pleased with the prices. So reasonable and the servings were huge. Tried the spumoni ice cream for dessert and was not disappointed. They were very busy but the service was excellent and friendly.

I always recommend this place for friends and family visiting the area. The food is excellent (and I'm and Italian food snob) and the atmosphere is great. I love the openness of the restaurant so you still get the fresh air from outside even when seated inside. Definitely a great stop for Italian food in Boulder.

i was in Boulder to move my daughter into college so I found myself with a few extra teenagers. I normally would not have picked this checkered tabled restaurant, even looking at the food gave me doubts. We ordered the bolognese which was VERY good, better than I've had at high end places. The cheese manicotti was also also a... More

My husband, myself and two teenage daughters loved this restaurant. We were there just a week or two ago and they had the glass front opened up so that it felt we were able to enjoy the amazing outdoors and watch the interesting people walk by. We all had pizza and pasta and loved our different dishes. Fun atmosphere and... More

I was visiting Broomfield, CO for work from the NYC office and a co worker drive us into Boulder for dinner. SO HAPPY WE CAME HERE!!! Delicious!!! I had the Diavolo, my two other coworkers had the Chix Pesto. We all had to push back from the table because the portions are so big but you do not want to... More

We didn't actually visit the restaurant but they catered my daughter's wedding in Estes Park, CO. They arrived on time, had to climb stairs to the deck where they set up. Food was great; chicken Parmesan, rosemary rolls, a tasty mixed salad of mixed greens, garbanzos, black olives, mozzarella, rigatoni marinara, roasted potatoes and roasted broccoli and cauliflower. They were... More

We stopped here for HH the other day, one reason was because it was at the starting line of a race. One drink ordered was an Italian cream soda. It's only $4 and is decadence in a glass. We had several comments and questions on it. Food looked good but we did not eat. Would return.

My wife and I had a enjoyed a late lunch today at Pasta Jay's. The service was excellent, and the food was very good. The open air atmosphere was very comfortable.
