"What a great little find!" cry Boulderites who stumble on this "reasonably priced" strip-mall throwback "to the old country" run by a "delightful" family that dishes up "authentic Italian food with lots of love" , including "excellent pasta" "made fresh on the premises" ; dining is cafeteria-style by day with table service at night, and while the interior may "need an upgrade" , the food "will keep you coming back again and again" ; P.S. closed weekends.

Best pasta in Boulder! I had no idea such a place existed, but I'm so happy to have found it now. The atmosphere is cozy and friendly and the food selection is wonderful. They really love what they do here, and it shows. Would highly recommend to anyone with a pasta craving!

This place is out of this world good. I'm from OH and every time I visit Boulder this is my favorite place to eat. Authentic Italian by far! The chicken parmigiana is the best I've ever had. The pesto cream sauce it super delicious as well.

The atmosphere is intimate and welcoming. The family servers remember you face and your last visit. The food this time was a little disappointing. The scallop "special" included tiny scallops with a very heavy and unpleasant odor. My meal had so much red sauce that the usually lovely pasta was soggy. Maybe just a bad night. I'll try it again.
