Expectation was bigger than what we received. They have a short menu but didn't have several items, such as racklets and steak. We only found out they didn't have racklets when we ordered. They could, at least, let us know what they didn't have when the attendant gave us the menus. Anyway, we had... read more

We are visiting Copper Mountain for the third time, this time in the summer. Love the laid back atmosphere! We have eaten at Alpinista probably about 7 times and each time the service and food excellent. They make awesome French toast out of banana bread or cinnamon rolls. A must try when you go!

While at Copper Mt. I ran across a small little place that made me smile. I had had a bad experience at another eatery and was leery of going into another. Sure glad that I did. Service was great, very friendly, and quick. Price was well within reason. I'm very glad that I decided to stop in!

Very casual but fun dining. The service was excellent and the Raclette pretty good....as was our Pasta Marinara on a second visit. Portions were generous and we took home enough to enjoy the next night in our Condo.

The restaurant seems to have new owners and new items in the menu. There is a horrible smell in the restaurant but we stayed as my daughter wanted to have what used to be an excellent homemade Mac&Cheese (not anymore). Well bad decision to stay, the service was terrible (we waited over 1 hr for pasta dishes & salads). I... More

This is a very casual restaurant that served a nice breakfast. The food was good and there was plenty of it. I found the service to be very, very good. They were always ready to warm up my coffee and see if I needed anything else. Not a bad way to start the day on the slopes.

I couldn't believe how bad the smell was when I walked into the place. I left after 15 seconds so I cannot comment on anything else.

Ate here because the wait at the incline was 45 minutes. Bad decision. Took an hour to get our very mediocre and over priced meal. Prices are way too high, service very slow and food is average at best. $16 pasta was cold and bland. We won't go back. Spend your money elsewhere!!

4 of us went in for dinner on Saturday 1/10/14. We love food but aren't very picky eaters. We have also worked in the food service industry when we were younger so we are quite forgiving about mistakes. We seriously had the worst meal of our week long trip here. Our server had a lot of tables and was also... More
