Aspen loves their Italian and this is another local favorite for lunch or dinner. It has a very casual atmosphere and more kid friendly than other restaurants in town. On their walls hang a multitude of pictures depicting half moons, which is the literal translation of Mezzaluna. Everything is made from scratch and their pizza’s are baked in an bona fide wood burning pizza oven. They even have gluten free pizzas which is such a rarity. Munch on the loaf of bread with hard bread sticks poking out of the top that they provide every table while you are deciding what Italian classic to choose from on the menu. There are some random selections, like Pad Thai, that break from tradition but still an excellent choice. The bar area is also known as a fun hang out for happy hour with extended hours till 6:30 pm.
