Carelli'se la famigilia

The place, the people
Happy Hour 3:30 – 6 pm daily


Carelli’s is the classic American success story. Twenty seven years ago Greg Carelli opened an Italian sub sandwich shop in the William’s Village Shopping Center. It was a surprisingly simple recipe that’s the Carelli’s trademark to this day: food made with the freshest and finest-quality ingredients, served with exceptional customer service. Carelli’s popularity has steadily burgeoned through three expansions and two remodels.

Today Carelli’s offers an outstanding and authentic  experience, in an unpretentious classic Italian atmosphere that is spacious and intimate as well as award winning decor.


Together with his father Gene Carelli, Greg created an unparalleled space cited for “Best Design” by the American Institute of Architects, featuring a beautiful 360-degree fireplace, natural Manitou slate, light birchwood appointments, an outdoor patio with a plush high-backed banquette.

Warmer months brings the opportunity to dine al fresco on Carelli’s patio. The restaurant’s stunning décor is matched by friendly, flawless service and a menu that combines the best from both traditional and contemporary cuisines of northern and southern Italy.

An extensive wine list beautifully complements the acclaimed menu. Perfectly suited for couples, families and festive gatherings, it’s no wonder that Carelli’s, after all these years, is still earning the attention of Boulder’s dining aficionados.

We now serve Gluten Free and Whole Wheat Pasta!
