Description: The all-new Bacchanale is a modest Italian restaurant from the team that launched django’s restaurant at the base of Mt. Crested Butte in 2008. Our fresh and light menu will re-introduce you to simple flavors, colorful salads, artisan flatbreads and handmade specialties. Our comfortable atmosphere will entice you to come every day. Join us nightly for dinner from 5-10pm, and pick your favorite spot: at the bar, the community tables, along the banquette benches, in our private dining rooms, or on the balcony overlooking it all. During the summer, bistro seating on Elk Avenue let's you watch the action, enjoy the sunshine and surf the web, all while enjoying a Campari & soda. At 7am every morning, we're up again to serve you organic coffee, fresh house-made pastries, and specialty breakfast items.

“Tremendous fare - tapas style”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Small and expensive plates were outdone by the pure high end quality of the food, from the bruschetta to the superb selection of salads, and finally antipasta plates and then the entrees. We had four wonderful courses, with attentive service from a well trained staff, and the bar service was exceptional to boot. And getting a hug from the owner on the way out simply sealed the deal!

“Innovative menu, excellent cooking, great dishes for sharing.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

A good restaurant from years ago has been transformed into an excellent restaurant with a new chef. Menu is innovative Italian with many dishes amenable to sharing. Good value for level of quality in an isolated Colorado ski town. Veggie dishes like the baby turnips and eggplant pillows are outstanding.

“Disappointing CO Meat”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Perhaps it was too early in the season, but the greens were not very fresh, the lamb chops much too fatty, and the steak ordinary. The wine list choices were overpriced. Service was ok and the owner was attentive.

“Memorable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Unique menu. Blending of flavors we had never experienced but worked extremely well. Friendly and helpful service. Our after dinner drink was created especially for us by the bartender. Ask for the "3 ladies". Our best dining experience in Crested Butte.

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

There can´t be more warmth and friendship expressed, than the people that greet you, lead you to your table and make sure through out the whole dinner experience that everything is just fine.
There is an awesome and selective variety of dishes, starting with the appetizers, entrees and main dishes. The cuisine is delicious creative and elegant. It is a must, while visiting downtown Crested Butte.
