I love Francesca's! I buy the pasta often for a quick meal at home. The owners are wonderful and always pleasant. The atmosphere in the shop is lovely, and the prices are low for Aspen.

Stumbled on this treasure after a tiring travel day. The real deal. Homemade pasta and sauces from a true chef.

Great hand made pasta, get cooking instructions from martin, the proprietor, as fresh pasta is quite a different cooking process than dried pasta
