We enjoyed a beer in the courtyard one evening, and the bartender was so nice we decided to try it the next night for dinner. Great choice! We both had pasta - shrimp carbonara and spicy lamb bolognese. Both were outstanding. The service was great...More

It's NOT an Italian restaurant. It's a noisy bar with some tables in the back for people who were led to believe it was an Italian restaurant. It's more like a pizzeria with bad music. Looking up at the TV didn't add to the ambiance.

Very nice outdoor seating. Not a great wine selection and a bit expensive. $18 for glass of Chardonnay. Pizza was delicious, and my husband's fish entree was excellent.

We chose this restaurant based on its appealing architecture and awesome patio. Service was not awful but I expected better in Aspen. Food came quickly and the Italian Pizza we ordered was above par but I wouldn't travel out of my way to visit again.

We were in town for a wedding and just stumbled on this place. Great location, was a sunny day and the square was full of people. Food was very good, service good too. Reasonably priced for Aspen. Great outdoor seating.

Food was excellent - albeit pricey - highly recommend the brocollini and scallops. Service was not very good - had to wait VERY long for our food (I think the waiter forgot about us).

We ate here last night for the first time, and really enjoyed it. Since food in Aspen is generally good, we look for a lovely ambiance (preferably outdoors) and interesting, but not weird, food combinations. The pizza & pasta (homemade) were really good, as were...More

The service was horrible. Waited for 45 minutes for apps and found out that our waiter forgot to order them. Asked for bread and butter got 4 pieces of bread and we were 5 at the table. Never got the butter. Waited for our drinks...More

It was a hot day and the setting for Above the Salt was perfect. Trees for shade and then umbrellas over the tables. I'm sure the restaurant pays a fortune for this location so it is a little pricey. We had the scallops (4 large),...More
