Description: Mezzaluna, meaning “half-moon” in Italian, is an independent, locally owned and operated restaurant serving modern Italian cuisine in Aspen. Our large Italian marble bar and our beautiful patio are key features of our restaurant, and our wood-burning pizza oven helps create an authentic atmosphere. We serve lunch, après ski and dinner, with daily food and wine specials. Aspen's favorite Italian for over twernty years and with Aspen's only wood-burning pizza oven. Fresh salads, tasty appetizers, pastas, fresh seafood daily and classic favorites like chicken marsala, veal piccata and pepper-seared beef tenderloin. Our horseshoe-shaped Italian marble bar is right in the center of the action. Our walls are adorned with over 100 pieces of original Italian art, and our patio is open for outdoor dining in the Fall, Spring and Summer.

“Very Good Aspen Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

Good food and great service. Soups were very good. My husband had the Caesar salad which was not as good as would have been expected in an Italian restaurant and it was small for the price. Liked the spaghettini and chicken parmesan.

Brenda,

Thanks for your review. I'll share your compliments with the staff. While I'm sorry the Caesar salad wasn't more to your liking, I'm happy everything else tasted good during your meal! We'd love to welcome you in again anytime you're back in the area.

Sincerely,
Grant Sutherland - Managing Partner

“Whole wheat pasta”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

As part of a business dinner we selected from a limited menu so I cannot comment on everything available. The cheese stuffed eggplant and bread delivered before the meal were quite good and I enjoyed the whole wheat fettucini with goat cheese. The salad and dessert were average and other people in the group were not terribly impressed by their steaks. It is very nice though to find a restaurant that offers a whole grain pasta!

“Don't ask the Bartender if you can watch TV!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012

We went in and there were 3 TV's on. The restaurant was empty and we asked the bartender if he could switch the TV nearest our table to the Michigan State football game. He said not until he was done watching the soccer game in 30 minutes!!! WOW! Who is paying his paycheck!
