Cugino’s Pizzeria & Italian Restaurant has a motto that some find egotistical, but that does not make it any less true. This pizzeria is “not the only pizza and Italian restaurant in town, just the best.” Regardless of whether you go for pasta, chicken, pizza—or some combination of the three–your mouth and your stomach are going to thank you.
The very smell of what is being cooked inside of this establishment from outside is enough to make your mouth water. This can be a dangerous spot for locals’ waistlines, but the good news is that, after a long day on the slopes, you’ve earned a big meal. You’ll need the room.
What They’re Known for: Cugino’s Pizzeria & Italian Restaurant has been in business for nearly 3 decades and they are known for making the sauces for their pastas and pizzas from scratch. They take pride in only using the freshest ingredients and making new, fresh sauces every day.
What to Watch for: Recognized as a restaurant that serves the best pizza and Italian food in town, it is no surprise that this place is frequently packed. Plan to wait a few minutes if you come in during peak times.
