Dinner last night was delicious. Four of us, two adults and two kids, arrived at 6:30 without reservations. Fortunately for us there were still seats available outdoors. Indoors was very pretty as well and the doors were wide open with big picture windows looking out but we enjoyed sitting outside under a shaded patio. They gave us a nice selection... More

Went here for lunch. Lunch pizzas are large enough to share but are delicious. Our service was terrible, as the wait staff was milling around the bar and not particularly friendly. This was very disappointing considering the price we paid to eat here and the quality of the food.

We were here during the off season so we felt like we had the place to ourselves. We ordered the giant calamari & tomato soup for appetizers. The calamari was the biggest we'd ever seen. The spinach & apple salad was the perfect size & not too filling. The mix of the apples, brie, & macrona almonds was delicious. My... More

This is a great little place with a really light and airy feel. Woodburner for the pizzas central to the restaurant and a nice central bar that is always lively and makes for a great atmosphere. The menu can be a little pricey but this is Aspen. They do regularly have specials on the menu and if you can get... More

This busy Italian restaurant is set in the heart of Aspen with tables inside and out. We sat in the sun and enjoyed top quality pizza served by friendly staff. Prosciuttio, wild mushroom and rocket with white truffle oil on a beautifully light crust was simply delicious. A favourite of the locals it can get very busy. Good wine list... More

We always go there for lunch at least once when in Aspen. Their pizza is quite good, gluten free is available for those who care, and this is a great spot to see and be seen. It attracts both locals and tourists. Staff is both friendly and professional.

Mezzaluna is a great place for lunch, dinner or a Happy Hour cocktail and nibble. Delicious pizza from their brick oven, gluten free available, small plates with healthy options and an extensive wine list. They can accommodate large parties if you call ahead and are very friendly. You can rub elbows with the locals who are seated at the bar... More

Loved the gluten free pasta option, but it was the topping that made this meal, fresh light with nothing overpowering but every taste complimentary. My family agreed with this for their choices. Great to enjoy food for everyone's intolerance's in such a fun atmosphere

Microwave pasta, tasteless and with undercooked vegetables. Being familiar with Italy and Italian food, this was an utter disappointment. Or we were just totally unlucky..
