The chef behind Boulder’s Sforno Trattoria Romana and Bacco Trattoria & Mozzarella Bar opened his latest Italian concept earlier this month in southwest Longmont. Caprese Trattoria replaced the fast-casual Mediterranean favorite Basil Flats at 1067 S. Hover Road. 

Fans of Monnanni’s Sforno and Bacco Trattoria & Mozzarella Bar in Boulder will likely find much to enjoy at Caprese Trattoria. The traditional Italian menu features Monnanni’s signature house-made mozzarellas, as well as a variety of traditional Italian antipasti and pasta. Many of which are available for discounted prices during the daily happy hour from 3 to 6 p.m. 

Caprese Trattoria also offers a full bar and two patios, providing diners a view of the new Village at the Peaks mall across Hover Road’s four lanes of traffic.

Marco Monnani is not the only Boulder-based restaurateur turning up the heat in Longmont this year. The Kitchen co-founders Hugo Matheson and Kimbal Musk are set to open one of their Next Door casual bistros at 1232 S. Hover Street later this summer.
