Italian cuisine and wines. Service was attentive and good and the meals were of a high quality.
Overall the service felt rushed. This may be more of a US culture thing compared to what we are used to in Europe (and, bizarrely, particularly in Italy. We ordered an apritivo to enjoy whilst perusing the menu, but unfortunately we were pressed for our order before we had received our drinks. Our appetisers arrived before we had finished our drinks and our mains arrived before our appetisers had been cleared.
Bread was good being a light focaccia style.
The “rucola and gamberini” salad was not a typical Italian dish. Rather than very small prawns, and a number of them, there were 3 very large king/tiger prawns. That said it was still very good indeed. My wife and I had different veal dishes both of which were very good too. The mashed potato was incredibly smooth and light.
Even though there were many empty tables (so they clearly didn’t need ours) we felt harried to make decisions on dessert, coffee, getting the check etc, whilst we still had a significant amount of our red wine to drink (partly, of course as our appetisers arrived before we’d finished aperitivi).
The end result was what we had hoped to be an enjoyable dining event became a transactional meal.
However, as noted, the food was of very good quality and servers were friendly, polite and helpful.

Had some good ravioli and wine after a day of skiing. The ravioli was cooked well and the sauce had good flavor. Ambiance was nice as well.

Great food, attentive service, historic building, no wait. A great Telluride dining experience! Ask about the building’s history and the bullet holes in the ceiling!

This shop frontage is quite small but inside the restaurant is huge with 3 different areas. It was a busy night when we fronted without a reservation but they managed to fit us in. In a town where we found food & service average to say the least, this restaurant was exceptional. Attentive waiter who was friendly & welcoming. Food was great. Pizzas, pasta & also the veal. Drinks were served without delay whilst we perused the menu. Would highly recommend this restaurant
