We heard this was a wonderful upscale restaurant in Telluride. We were seated outside with heaters. It had white tablecloths and nice glassware. Our waitress was very sweet, nice and accommodating. We each ordered something different. Two people ordered rigatoni montanero with sausage and my husband said it was just “OK”. I ordered the veal masala not knowing how VERY SALTY the procuitto would be. It was so bad I could hardly eat it. The dish came with spinach and mashed potatoes and the potatoes tasted to me like they came out of a box. I also ordered a side dish of vegetables and they seemed like they had been frozen before they sautéed them. Very disappointing. Too bad as I would have liked to have given this restaurant a high rating, but the food just was not that good. There were three of us; we ordered a $32 bottle of wine and the bill still came to $168 including tip. It was definitely NOT WORTH the price and we feel we are pretty sophisticated diners.

When they were seating us, they just kept walking out to a tent that I thought a wedding or private party was taking place. It was alive and vibrant. I highly recommend the organic filet from the Double RL Ranch. My husband and I split it and a Cesar salad, and were happy with that. The waiters sing the birthday song quite well. You feel like you've immersed yourself in Italy for a short while.

My husband and I had lunch on the outdoor patio. The service was impeccable. The atmosphere was unhurried, relaxing. It was difficult to choose from all the wonderful menu options. Our wines were nice. I had the special, which was a crab stuffed manicotti with a light sauce. It was excellent , as was the gellato. I don't see this has a family restaurant - our school aged grandchildren would not want to be still that long. As another reviewer commented, the food was pricey, but worth it.

I was looking for a nice outdoor patio with some appetizers and a glass of wine. We got just that. The patio was beautiful, the champagne was nice and the calamari and caprese salad were delightful. 2 drinks each, a small salad and 2 appetizers and we dropped $90 for tip and all. Service was great and atmosphere made up for the price. I would recommend if you have the $$$

We ate here on our 1 night stay. Risotto was excellent and so was husbands pizza. Service was good and it became very busy so popular with adults and families alike.
