Just dined again at Carelli's, a favorite place in Boulder for Italian food. Although it doesn't top the best spots in Chicago and New York, the food is pretty darn good and the service is wonderful. This "ristorante" is good enough that a group of...More

The hostess was extremely nice as was the server and that is why the three starts. The food is high priced for tomato sauce on pasta. There was not much flavor and the chicken was rubbery. We won't be returning

Friends and I ate at this restaurant and were so impressed with the service as well as the food. I enjoyed the shrimp scampi over angel hair instead of fettuccine; friends enjoyed the chicken piccata. For dessert, we could not resist the creme brûlée. The...More
