The first time I have ordered from Grub Hub and received my food in a timely manner! Delicious and the delivery guy found our ridiculously hard to find apartment :) more

Great food. My caprese salad was delicious and fresh, and the spaghetti carbonara was a large portion of goodness. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 11/29/2012

This is a delightful place to dine.\r We had a wonderful meal -a Filet mignon with pesto potatoes, and the Lobster with shrimp over pasta was a treat. Desserts were fantastic especially the gelato-filled pastry with chocolate sauce. The owner is one of most amiable and talented in Boulder. more

Awful, don't go 6/27/2009

We each paid a three dollar cover to get in for salsa and approached to bar to order drinks - and get some water. The bartender REFUSED TO SERVE WATER. Trattoria will NOT GIVE YOU WATER. They will try, instead, to SELL you bottled Boulder Water which, incidentally, is just bottled tap water out of Golden. The money-grubbing nature of this astounds me. I also think it's morally unsupportable to serve alcohol and refuse water, not to mention the environmental impact of requiring people to buy bottled water in a bar/ restaurant. We had people in our party who had recently flown in from sea level, some on long haul flights out of Europe. Dehydration is a bad thing, and I also can't believe the bartender wouldn't just stick a glass under the visible tap. I eventually asked for a glass of ice so we could wait for it to melt, and she slammed it down in front of me. Why not just stick the glass under the visible water tap? Nothing could inspire me to go to this awful place again. Pros: None. Cons: Refuses to serve water, rude service more

A dining experience we'd like to forget 4/11/2009

Not good. Appetizer and entree were abysmal. The service was even worse... perhaps our worst experience ever. We hate to admit it, but it was bad. Given all the other reviews on this place, it looks like this is the general consensus. Shame, shame. more

Go Elsewhere 2/28/2009

Small portions are fine when the food is great, the ingredients are fresh, and the taste is impressive. That was not the case here; the portions were small but did not pack much taste, imagination, or flavor. The presentation was not impressive either. Overpriced food. Pros: Wine. Dessert. Cons: Food more

If you're a party of two, stay away from this place!! 7/5/2008

When we first moved to Boulder, Colorado in December 2006, we explored a lot of new restaurants in Boulder and we wanted to share our experience at Trattoria on Pearl Street Mall so that nobody has to suffer through the same nightmare. If you come as a small party (party of two), you can expect a very slow and terrible service. My husband and I got there about 10 minutes before a big party came in, and since then we seemed to be invisible to the waiter. We didn't order any wine so the waiter probably figured out that his tip from us wouldn't be as much as the bigger party, who ordered wine and all kind of food. The waiter was obviously all over the big party and totally ignored us. Their bread came out before ours even though they arrived after us. And we had to 'ask' for our bread!! The service was very slow and every time the waiter came around, he went straight pass us to the bigger party. My husband and I eat out all the time because we appreciate food and good service, and we're big tippers!! However, we only left less than 10% tip at this place even thought the waiter deserved no tip!! If you want great Italian food with much better service (and better food!!), go to Antica Roma a couple blocks down the road. We go there all the time and never set foot in Trattoria again!! Pros: Good for big party that orders lots of wine and expensive food (the waiter will be all over you!!) Cons: Horrible service for party of two (especially if you don't order any wine) more

Editorial review from GrubHub 4/29/2008

Gnocci is ok but way overpriced! That all it was when I opened the box- just gnocci and sauce nothing fancy. For $15.00 work on presentation. Should have been $8.00 at most. Took almost 2 hrs to get delivered. Guy handed it to me and walked away too fast for me to say anything. This place will probably go out of business soon with these business practices and overpriced food. more

Nice patio 10/19/2007

Below average food. Poor service. We were expecting an Italian restaurant, but in reality it is a mix of american/ italian recepies. I will not return. The server was slow to get to our table, even though the restaurant only had 3 tables.\r Pros: patio Cons: service and food more

Faux Restaurant 8/11/2005

This place tries to be something its not. With nice dishware and fancy decorations around your food, surprisingly the food is pretty average. The service was just ok, and a simple request to the management proved they were totally unaccomodating. It's fun to sit on a patio on Pearl Street, but there is certainly better, friendly, and less expensive places to do it. Not recommended. Pros: on pearl street, not crowded Cons: average food, below avg. service more
