Description: Featuring classic and contemporary Italian cuisine from executive chef Sakima Isaac. We use the highest quality local-organic ingredients, as well as exciting and unique Italian imports. At The L, we demonstrate our commitment to culinary excellence and responsible sourcing by using whole local grass-fed cows from Saw Hill Farm, Long Farm pigs, and Wisdom Farm chickens. We pride ourselves not only on using day boat fish, but on our use of sustainably caught wild fish, and only the very best quality farmed fish. Our bakery produces breads, pastas, and desserts in-house, by hand, using organic ingredients. Compliment your meal with one of over 350 unique wines from our award wining list. Join us tonight for dinner, and enjoy a remarkable dining experience. Boulder's best Happy Hour is available in the wine bar everyday from 3 pm until close.

We loved Laudisio's at the previous location and went often. This site is noisy and tables are too close together. I could be a part of the entire converstaion from the table next to us. Just is not the same, atmosphere is not as cozy.... we don't go but every few years now. :-(

the food is ok, the furniture is cramped and uncomfortable. basically you are squatting on a barstool and bumping into the person behind you. But some out of towners from Ohio loved it, so I guess it depends on your point of reference.

We walked into the restaurant, and the hostess stared at us, not saying a word. "Two, for Lunch...please?" I said. Still without saying a word, she grabbed two menus and walked off. We followed, sat down, and did not see any wait staff for ten minutes, When our waitress did come, my wife tried, politely, to order drinks. The waitress replied that she was just there to tell us about the specials. She the paused, and snipped, "Well, what do you want to drink then?" I told her we'd been waiting for ten minutes, and would like to see a wine list. She snipped "It has NOT been ten minutes, sorry if YOU felt like it was." At that time we got up to leave, with her swearing behind us. Really, in a town with as many good restaurants as Boulder has....

Knowing we'll be able to order some live cells, freshly prepared from their sparkling kitchen, makes it easy to resist yielding to the aroma of hot popcorn in the nearby movie lobby.

From 3 to 10 are happy hour prices. Plus our handsome waiter was smart and chipper.
