If you ever find yourself in the Windy City, we've got a great list of Italian restaurants in Chicago, too.
Enjoy the best of both worlds with a full menu and small-plate bar menu at L'Hostaria. Try executive chef Ruben Bonomi’s calamari fritti with a wine pairing from in-house sommelier Giovanni Favella.

Rustic meets sophisticated at Casa Tua’s luxurious dining experience. Stick to tradition with the kitchen’s creamy bucatini cacio e pepe, or be bold and try the alpine cheese fondue with white truffle and grilled focaccia–need we say more? 403 S. Galena, 970.920.7277, casatualife.com
Campo De Fiori
Italy meets Colorado mountains at Campo De Fiori. Try one of Campo’s seasonal offerings, such as the homemade gnocchi spinaci or the resto’s brick chicken smothered in pesto available on the winter menu. Pair with a blood orange martini for extra flavor fusion. 205 S. Mill St., 970.920.7717, campodefiori.net/aspen/
