We walked by and we're tempted by the lovely outdoor seating and happy faces of those whowere dining there. Happened to sit near some locals who raved about all of the dishes. We ordered the specials, mushroom soup ahi nicoise salad. Sipped mimosas. A truly delightful lunch, very generous portions.

Sergio is a pasta genius! We discovered the Bistro last summer, and now it's a go to place for us each visit to Telluride (4 or so times per year). This year, my very picky 12 year old son declared it was the best meal he's EVER had... The outdoor seating is very romantic and whimsical. The setting is very... More

We walked by this restaurant on the main road of Telluride and decided to have dinner there. Although they have an outdoor patio, we decided to dine indoors due to the evening chill. We read the two menus, wine and food, but did not find any wine by the glass listed. We asked the waitress who told us they did... More

Outdoor ambiance is great, seating comfortable and noise moderate. Service was average and I was disappointed they would not add an egg to my wife's salad even though they offer an egg on another dish. The carpaccio was exceptional, calamari very good, arugula salad very good, and an overall very nice experience. Would highly recommend especially for a summertime lunch.

We had a wonderful dinner. All ingredients were organic and many were bought locally. Sitting outside we were surrounded by several hummingbirds. They only added to the atmosphere.

Bustling and obviously popular with local, the Telluride Bistro did not disappoint. Our food was served by a gracious waiter, and although the restaurant was crowded, we never felt rushed in the service. The food was delicious and left no room for the tempting desserts.

Just ate there and food was very cheap and very overpriced. All I got was a sandwich and the bread was stale, the avocado was brown and mushy! Yuck. Better food at a fast food place. The sandwich cost $17. Don't go there, plenty of better places to go.

This place serves Italian food, which we enjoyed on the patio one evening in early July. Beautiful view, and a perfect spot for people watching and relaxing after a day in town. They even provide blankets for when it gets a bit cool! Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. The food was tasty, but we were disappointed with the wine... More

Their tagline is "Fine Italian Cuisine." It is very tasty and well prepared and presented. The catch is the price. We have just returned from a two week holiday in Italy. So we kinda had a recent taste bud tuning for fine Italian cuisine. These guys got that part correct. Good Italian food. As in Italy, these folks give you... More

First, this place has excellent atmosphere. We ate on the patio and couldn't have asked for a nicer setting. The house wine was excellent although a glass cost as much as a bottle at most wine stores. The food was pricey and the appetizer portion was very small. I had lasagna figuring it was a safe bet and my wife... More
