We went for a simple dinner of antipasto and pasta. The place can be high end if you go for a several course meal with meat or fish entrée, not to mention the wine list which goes quickly to the stratospheric. But if you stick with your original game plan, you could not do better than this very attractive and... More

We had dinner here on March 15, and I had been concerned when I saw a review on Yelp that said the restaurant didn't take children. Our family of four was reassured after I called the restaurant and talked to them. Our experience was excellent. The server was very helpful and offered several options for our 11 and 7 year...

If it's Italian that your looking for L'Hostaria is your best choice. I found the food to be good, certainly worth a visit. It is on the lower level so you take stairs kind like going underground.

Fantastic restaurant with nice ambience. The salads are great but they are huge, so ask if you can split them. The tables are VERY close together, but the good is so excellent you won't notice!! Love the lamb chops, but miss the goat cheese on this years menu...

Consistently marvelous, from the friendly bartenders and staff, to the lively crowd -- there's always a crowd! -- and the excellent fare. Tip: snag a table in the bar and enjoy the less expensive bar menu for dinner.

We were in Aspen in February and ate here for Valentine's Day. Everything was wonderful! We loved the atmosphere and the food and service were superb! The sommelier suggested a wine that has to one of the best Pinot Noir I have had.

L'hostaria has a warm atmosphere, lively bar, and excellent food. In my opinion the best Italian food in Aspen. The seafood soup, veal, oso bucco, and all the pasta dishes are delicious. The bartender is attentive and generous with his pours. Make reservations as you'll need them most nights.

Bustling and a tad noisy, this restaurant embodies Aspen's youthful energy. The food is excellent and the service impeccable. Divided into a more formal seating area and a bar area with high top tables, L'Hostaria offers either a simple menu at the bar or a wonderfully complex set of Italian offerings. Bona sera!
