I recently relocated to Vail, Colorado and by good fortune, found myself living near Chicago Pizza. I have eaten there three times. I have had their pizza, calzone and meatball sandwich. All were delicious! The food quality was exceptional. The presentation superb. The atmosphere was both attractive and comphy. I truly felt welcome there the first time I walked through their doors. The best part of the restaurant are the owners. Truly exceptional people who make your visit special. I highly recommend giving Chicago Pizza in Vail a try.

La Bottega

Reviewed By RJ1340

I have no complaints about my meal at La Bottega. I had a beet salad with anchovies and it was pretty good, maybe just a tad heavy on the dressingThe farmers vegetable soups was delicious. My wife said that it was one of the best soups she ever had. Her entree was a different story, though.She ordered lemon sole with a lemon caper sauce (NOTE: lemon sole is only a type of fish, has nothing to do with the yellow fruit). After one bite of the fish, my wife's whole face puckered, she said that there was so much lemon on the fish that it was inedible. She was so hungry though, that she ate all the mashed potatoes.When she finally got the chance to tell the waitress that the fish was too lemony to eat, the waitress said that she would tell the chef.When we got our check, the fish was on the bill. That's just bad business. If you're customer tells you that her dinner is inedible, you offer to bring her something else or, at the very least, you take it off the bill.On the way out, my wife asked the waitress if she told the chef. The waitress replied that no one ever said that about the fish before, as if she judged my wife's complaint as irrelevant and did nothing about it.Here's the thing: My wife said that this was the worst meal she ever had in Vail. We spend 60-70 days each year in Vail, so that is saying a lot. And it's not like she was just in a mood to complain, because she panned the fish right after raving about the soup.

La Nonna Ristorante

Reviewed By artbur

We went to La Nonna in December, February and April with different people. Each group had such an outstanding experience that we cancelled reservations at other restaurants to dine again at La Nonna. Mira was wonderful to work us in to an already full restaurant the 2nd visits.It's difficult to recommend specific dishes because everything is so wonderful. However, my wife and I order the Osso Buco whenever it's available. The homemade pasta is extraordinary! Chef Simone takes personal pride and great care to be certain that everything is fresh, delicious and served hot. We were sad to see Campo di Fiore close, but La Nonna is superior to it. The remodel of the restaurant is also a big improvement. We enjoy several Vail restaurants, but this is our new favorite.

Vendetta's Italian Restaurant

Reviewed By ROCtraveler30

We stopped for a weekday lunch while passing through the valley and were once again plesently suprised at the quality of the daily special. At about $11 I had a nice portion of homemade pasta, with chicken, prosciutto, peas and an alfredo sauce. My wife was able to get a version of the same dish with gluten-free pasta for just a little more $$$. You could tell that the sauce was made to order as there was a slight variation in it from dish to dish. Service was prompt and personable. What's not to like?

Pazzo's Pizzeria

Reviewed By Familyx06

We went to this restaurant, hoping to have a large family dinner together, however; the service, food and environment were disrespectful to us. The restaurant was extremely hot in temperature (no air conditioning), dirty tables and floors that were never cleaned before seating us and the service personnel were rude. The meal for 3/4 of our family came out and was luke warm and the remaining 1/4 of our food never came out before the rest of the family was done eating their meals. When asking to remove the food, that never arrived, the staff seemed annoyed that we asked to have it removed from our bill. They attempted to provide the food that never came out after most of our family was finished eating their semi-warm meals but we refused, as it had been sitting in the server counter to bring to our table for over 10 minutes because we had went up to view the status and the same food was still sitting there when the waiter was told to remove it from our bill and he grabbed it and said it was for our table. We will never eat here again and hope that others can avoid the same pitfall we endured for a $80+ meal. The staff never attempted to make the situation right by asking what they could do to make it better for us but instead smartly commented that they “had told us the status throughout the evening”. But to the opposite occurred and we had to find him several times to ask for drinks, silverware to eat our meals and what the status was of our food many times. Please do not waste your time or hard earned money. There are too many other family appreciative restaurants in the area that will make your experience respectful and enjoyable.

Excellent meal with exemplary customer service. From the host to the server and bussers the service experience was worked to perfection. Recommendations on chef specials, continued attentive service and even wheeling over a portable heater for our chilly outdoor experience. I can’t say enough great things and I haven’t even started talking about the food.....WOW!I ordered a couple of chef specials; the grilled peach palisades salad and the lingcod fish with white beans. Both were remarkable! The warm peach from the grill gently melted the point Reyes blue cheese into a heavenly combination with the bacon creating a magical moment to start our meal. The fish was cooked to perfection; crispy crust with a flaky and moist center. The white beans in amatriciana sauce absolutely sent me into a blissful moment. I could literally make a pot of those beans (wish I had the recipe) sit down to watch football and make a meal out of those unctuous freaking beans! I’m serious! My wife took 1 bite (I was feeling generous) and she replied, “wow..I want your meal”. Now that’s not taking anything away from her flat iron steak she ordered, she loved it, I’m just saying that those magical beans were ridiculous. Get the point? We loved the restaurant, the food, the staff and service along with the incredible Colorado atmosphere. Go have dinner here. You’ll be glad you did! Can I humbly beg for the bean recipe?
