Compared to so many hot spots in Aspen, it's hard to give more than an average grade. Downstairs on a cool evening, the table seemed perfect right in the middle of the room with three couples. Drinks ordered, it took the waiter too long to fetch them. I thought he went down the street for our simple cocktails. Before dinner... More

Although we had been to this restaurant before, this experience was absolutely the worst. It started with one of us getting the lobster pasta- the piece of lobster in it was discolored and had to be sent back. For a $30 pasta dish, it came back with MAYBE 1-2 ozs of lobster Two of us ordered the eggplant and fresh... More

Order from the bar. The bolognese was some of the best in CO. Accompanied by what appeared to be hand made noodles. Great meal.

Our hotel concierge recommended L'Hostaria as her favorite Italian restaurant in town, and we can now see why. The bar scene is hopping and, we are told, as a different and more "value-packed" menu, but we were in the mood for a more quiet and romantic dinner, which we found in the main dining room. We started out splitting their... More

L'Hostaria still remains a local hotspot. Tuesday night is the most fun usually with a good band and a packed house...eating from the bar menu which will place you under the $$$ category...personal favorite the spaghetti carbonara! Buon appetito!

This restaurant has been open for almost 20 years, which is a testament to its excellence. They have a great bar menu for a very good value oa just a quick bite. Their full menu is delicious! The staff is great and this is a family run business that is very proud of their food. Go there!

This place was recommended by a few different friends to us. We didn't have reservations so we waited at the bar for about half an hour to get a table in the bar area. The food was so good we made reservations for the next night. The food in the restaurant was just as good but we found that the... More

We found this restaurant to be a bit "full of itself". I felt very rushed and especially with wine service. Amazing to think that some people - other than employees - actually do know their way around a wine list and know what they like to drink. I found the food bland - had a pork shank. For the $...

We had buffalo, veal, seafood and all was great! The wine selection was pretty good and we really enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere. Great food!
