DaGabi Cucina

Tucked behind Lucky's Market in a north Boulder parking lot, this typically quiet casual dinner spot has a warm dining room that invokes the Mediterranean, the region that also inspired the menu. There are dishes rooted in Spain -- including tapas such as Spanish tortilla, pancetta-wrapped shrimp and steamed clams -- and in Italy, with wood-fired pizzas and pastas rounding out the roster. The wine-and-beer list focuses on bottles from Spain and Italy, too, and it's supplemented by a full bar with a more classic international bent. Nightly specials include traditional Mediterranean dishes and a tapas happy hour. There's a Monday paella deal, too, and a broad, gluten-free menu is always available.
