Italian Done Right
By Carol Maybach
Trattoria on Pearl
(out of 4 stars)
1430 Pearl St., boulder

The Draw
Extensive wine list, excellent seafood dishes, and flavorful sauces. The Drawback
With the exception of the owner and one senior waiter, wine service is barely competent; the occasional undercooked pasta.
Don't Miss
Pollo arrosto alla Romana, zuppa di mare, pork chop, cozze di mare e terra.
Vegetarian Options
Bruschetta alla Romana, insalata caprese, margherita and vegetariana pizzas, penne alla vodka, and capellini alla checca.
