Open for lunch and dinner, Aqualino Aspen is a delicious Italian restaurant located in the center of Aspen. The word Aqualino means mouthwatering, and the term has never been more accurately applied. The atmosphere here is informal but still elegant, and it boasts a wide variety of different foods to eat. The authentic cuisine is to die for, and each bite will transport you to the best kitchens in Italy. Aqualino Aspen also offers an extensive wine list featuring some of the best Italian wines, aged to perfection. You, your friends, and your family will love eating here, and unwinding after a day on the slopes.
What They’re Known for: One of the local favorites is the homemade bruschetta. Made with the ripest cherry tomatoes and garlic, the last bite is every bit as good as the first. Another favorite is the classic spaghetti and meatballs. The meatballs are made from fresh meat and a delicious tomato sauce that has been simmering all day.
What to Watch for: The small dining area. Many locals have noted that the dining room area seems to be a bit crowded and cramped, and you may feel as though you are sitting in close quarters with other people. On the other hand, once the wine and food hit your table, you won’t want to leave the table, anyway.
