“Cute, cheerful spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Chose it for it's funky look, and sat in the sun overlooking the window flower boxes. Would return again for the hearty lasagna loaded with meat & spinach. Service a bit uneven, but friendly.

“Cute and okay.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

The good thing is, we ate outside and it is dog friendly. Other than that, the food was okay but not outstanding. Our waitress had a health issue and disappeared shortly after we got there. I don't blame her but, nobody seemed to notice she was gone! I picked at my salad with my fingers and finally got silverware by myself! I would give it another try as it was obviously a bad day.

“Don't miss if you are in Leadville.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

Had dinner here this past weekend during a quick fall weekend trip. Very nice menu of fresh and sometimes unique items. The chicken and artichoke soup was very good, my lasagna was wonderful. The atmosphere is uniquely Leadville as are the regulars that frequent the place. Don't plan on a nice glass or bottle of wine...the wine selection is lacking but they do have an extensive list of nice micro brews, several on tap.

“Whatever you want to eat, it's probably here...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Zicchitellas is closed on Mondays, so I went looking for another interesting place to have lunch. Just a block or two further down the street, Tennessee Pass has one of the most varied menus I've seen: Salmon Eggs Benedict, Blueberry Crèpes, Denver Omelette, Teriyaki Buffalo Steak Melt, Pizza, Peanut Stirfry, Pizza.. you get the idea! Breakfast is 7-11, the rest available all day. Service was attentive. It may not be obvious but they have an outdoor patio where you can be served if you prefer the outdoors.

“A Must!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Situated on Main Street in this little mining town, just south of Aspen, is this adorable littlIe restaurant that serves freshly prepared food for a very, very good price!!

I created my breakfast of 2 sides of bacon, 1 side of pork sausage, & three eggs w/black coffee and my bill came to $8.55 w/tax!!!! No fillers, nothing to make my drive uncomfortable.. Just a healthy array of protein at a very reasonable price!

I couldn't have been happier.
They are accommodating, eager to please, service is fast and efficient and the bathrooms are clean..
Great experience while wandering through the Rocky Mountains.
