Every restaurant in the Bacco family wants patrons who walk through the door to feel like family and leave with a fantastic Italian culinary experience under their belt - literally. We’d now like to introduce the newest addition to the restaurant family, featuring authentic, Roman Italian cuisine. Sforno, meaning ‘from the oven’, will tastefully reiterate the goodness of food that should come out of a kitchen...and this restaurant is built around our beloved oven.

We strive to give you the genuine tastes of Italy, right here in Boulder, with our local, natural ingredients. And with our famous mozzarella made in house, Happy Hour 7 days a week, and an original wood burning pizza oven, we have no doubt that you will love coming to Sforno. Join us for a little bit of Italian bliss right here in Colorado, and let us show you what ‘love from the oven’ means to us.

This is one of my favorite dining establishments. The location on Pearl Street is fantastic, the ambience is wonderful, the wait staff is awesome. I’ve eaten here about five times over the past year or two (I live in Westminster) and every time I’ve been there the food has been outstanding. I highly recommend it.

Service was great. Stopped in for dinner after the Ironman and it was fantastic. The old world feel was perfect. You have to try it. The Lasagna was perfect

Best ravioli I have had in a LONG time. All other meals at the table were spot on. I recommend Sforno Trattoria Romana and will return.
