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.

“The Restaurant has improved since my last visit.”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

I was here a couple of years ago and this time with the four of us dining, the service has noticably improved. Whilst we had relatively simple dishes, they were prepared and presented nicely. The wine was more expensive than it ought to have been though, but this is extra profit for them.

“Better choices in Aspen”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

This is a good place to go early, maybe bring the kids, and leave satisfied without spending a ton. But for a nice evening out, the food just isn't up to what you can find elsewhere. The patio is a good alternative as well and is comfortable and there is a nice enough bar to enjoy before dinner. Mixed bag - maybe look elsewhere.

“Happy hour stop”
Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

My friends and I stopped by for happy hour at the bar. There was cheap beer and pizza. The pizza was pretty good and came out fast! The bartender was friendly and pretty attentive. We only stayed for one round and took most of our pizza to go - but I would definitely stop by again.

“Great carbonara, Server focused on Locals”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

Sat at the bar and ordered from bar menu, the carbonara was perfect except for the lack of traditional poached egg on top. Service was flawless in nature but the bartender seemed only interested in talking to the locals and almost refused to interact with us on a personal level. I even tried to spark up a conversation and she threw a response over her shoulder as she walked towards her friends. As a restaurant manager and bartender myself, I felt she shot herself in the foot on this one, since we are visitors from a neighboring town and looking for a welcoming experience. If you're going to be a bartender you need to interact a little bit. Oh well, drinks are pretty expensive, but a good experience in all.
