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.

“Fantastic food”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Great food. Fresh-baked bread is delicious. Service was great. Salmon on bed of avocado, mango and quinoa was the best meal that I had on my vacation.

“Fun, Fun, Fun”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

Mezzaluna is a great Apres Ski spot. But, I'm a local. So, I go there for lunch and dinner and happy hour. The food is consistently good. Great little bar menu that is different than what you get at the tables. Bartenders know what they are doing. And, sport tv's strategically placed for the fanatic. Does get loud and crowded, but that is part of the fun.

“Worth the wait!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

There is always a wait here, but we are always glad we waited!
We were there for a late day girls lunch and the place was packed. We hung at (near) the bar for a cocktail and then were seated after around 25 minutes. Our waiter was delightful and knowledgeable. We shared some salads and some pastas. Everything was very delicious. We saw Maria Shriver and Rob Lowe with there families at the next table. No one bothered them, which is nice. We will eat there again, always a buzzing spot in Aspen.

“Great restaurant and pizza”
Reviewed January 17, 2013 via mobile

We carried out pizza and salads. We had 2 different pizzas, both were excellent. The salads were typical side salads, but the house dressing was excellent. The bread that was sent with our dinner was very good as well.
The following day, we stopped in for a glass of wine and a bowl of the tomato basil soup. The soup was excellent. The restaurant is beautiful and the service at the bar was great as well.

“Good food, fast service”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Enjoyed an early Christmas eve dinner with a large group. Service was fast and friendly. Bread was brought and replenished freely. All food (pizzas, pasta, soup, salad) were good italian dishes. Better than chain Italian but nothing super special.
