Tossa will give Boulder another Italian restaurant

Boulder seems close to saturated with Italian restaurants, but someone in the market thinks there's room for another entrant: a new eatery called Tossa is currently being built in the Arapahoe Village Shopping Center.

The 56-seat space has just had its building permits approved and has applied for a hotel-restaurant liquor license, for which it will go before the city on September 21.

As we get more details on the new spot, we'll post them here.
