Carelli’s is an excellent Italian restaurant in Boulder. From the appetizers, fried mozzarella and bruschetta, to the main courses, shrimp scampi and salmon margherita, the food was delicious. It was quite busy on a Friday night so make reservations. Great for lunch or dinner.

Carelli's can be hit and miss sometimes great and other times not so much, this time it was good. I had a nice veal dish and the sisters with me had fish. Nice fireplace on a cold night and good drinks.
