620 E. Hyman Ave.

Speak Italian here and most of the staff will speak back in their native country's tongue. Owned and run by three Italian transplants, L'Hostaria is one of the newer restaurants on the Aspen scene and a popular one as well. Al fresco dining in the small patio makes for an intimate evening, but the food is the thing here. The classic vitello tonnato -- thinly sliced veal with tuna sauce and capers -- is an authentic representation, while the primi of ravioli di zucca, parmigiano e noci -- pumpkin ravioli, walnuts, and parmesan -- is a winner. All pasta at L'Hostaria is made daily in-house. The extensive menu also includes black truffle-flavored boneless quail with braised cabbage and tomatoes, veal Milanese with arugula and cherry tomatoes. A vegetarian entree includes Roman-style artichokes, eggplant and tomato pie, and other grilled vegetables. The classic tiramisu is offered under dolci, but there are also some interesting twists on classics like semifreddo which, here, is made of wild cherries and cassis, or the panna cotta which is served with a spiced red wine poached pear.
