Best Italian in aspen

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!

The place can get crowded, because it's a local favorite, but the food is excellent and very reasonably priced for Aspen.

We are at L'Hostaria twice during our stay inAspen after it was recommended by our concierge. A great bar and buzzing atmosphere creates a warm welcome. Good traditional Italian menus offered something for everyone in our group to enjoy.

Our waiting staff seemed completely indifferent to us from the moment we sat down at our table. Drinks came very late, etc. I received my pasta with lobster in the shell without any water bowl or extra napkins. When I asked for one, the first response was 'no'. After asking again and explaining I had lobster goo all over my... More
