Not impressed, especially because it is considered fine dining. Most dishes were bland. One we had to send back. At best, some dishes were good average Italian, but nowhere near the expectation set for the price and atmosphere.

Ate at L'Hostaria on the recommendation of someone met on the lift, coulda gone either way and in this case, it went in just the right direction. It was a Tuesday night, early February and we didn't have a reservation. We could have been seated in the main dining room right away but the bar looked like the place to... More

I've been here countless times (over 30) and this has been my overall experiece. -Terrible food -TERRIBLE service -terrible management -terrible pricing If you go here you're getting ripped off; especially if you don't eat at the bar. There are way better places in aspen to eat; I'd rather not be treated like dirt just because I decide not to... More

Quick service, good food, friendly waitstaff. The food was all good not great. We were a group of four people. Between us we had salads, carpaccio, fish and pasta. All the food was good but not good enough to bring us back.

My son and I enjoyed an excellent meal here. I'm very particular about pasta and this place did not disappoint me. The service was prompt and friendly and the ambiance was unique, in a good way. The crowd was lively as well but not too loud. I recommend this restaurant without reservation!

This is the second time we've eaten at L'Hostaria. This time we sat in the bar & ordered off the Bar Menu. I was expecting the courses to be small based on the inexpensive prices on the Bar Menu, and was pleasantly surprised to be served full portions of each course. The kale & beet salad was delicious as was... More

Very good food, fast service by efficient waiters, boss is always there to look after customers. It is not very expensive. Make sure to reserve a table. Bar menu is good but there are better choices in the main menu especially risotto with truffles and sea food soup were excellent. The only weak thing is the desert choices. There is... More

One of the better Italian restaurants in Aspen. Has a kind of old school rustic decor on the inside. Always great atmosphere as the place is quite full most nights as it's popular with the locals as well as the tourists. Great food and an excellent wine selection. The staff were always nice and the service is quite good and... More
