Indifferent staff and 'death stare' hostess!

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... read more

L'Hostaria was great from the minute we walked through the door - a warm welcome, great atmosphere (even at 6.30pm) & food to die for! We asked our waiter to recommend a couple of starters to share & he suggested a Parma ham & cerignola olive platter and a mozzarella salad. The Parma ham was the best any of us... More

This restaurant clearly has a great local following. The bar was packed and it seemed like everybody knew one another. Bartenders were very friendly and were chatting up all the guests. We started with the fried calamari and the flatbread with burruta. Both were good, but needed salt. We had the breaded chicken and the grilled salmon for our main... More

Wine and food were excellent. Every dish looked and tasted great and the brunello was the tops. Well done even at a time when the restaurant was packed. Keep up the good work.

We were looking forward to a great meal but found the experience to be very average with the service to be about the same level. I'm not sure if we would go beck.

This dinner was by far one of our best since arriving in Aspen. From the moment we were seated the waitstaff could not have been more attentive. The restaurant seems to employ a large staff; everyone was knowledgable about the menu, drinks included. After ordering we received a bread basket with two kinds of bread- dense onion bread and light... More
