Zino Ristorante is a lively Italian restaurant from the creators of Sweet Basil. Located in the heart of the Vail Valley, Zino is perfectly situated on the Eagle River in Edwards Colorado. Chef Nick Haley serves contemporary Italian cuisine from an open kitchen, best known for wood fired pizzas, house made pastas and our famous mussels. The large bar and lounge area offers casual dining overlooking the restaurant, and is always buzzing with locals and visitors alike. The wine list features the best of Italian and American wine, created with passion by Owner Giuseppe Bosco. In the warmer months, dinner is also served on our riverside patio, where you can join or watch a game of bocce on the regulation-size court. Come visit us for a taste of Italy in the Rocky Mountains...Buon Appetito!

I ordered the Fritto Misto for the table. There were three of us and we didn't finish it because it was average, not too big. I had the Maiale for dinner. The oil drowned the pork, I ate two bits which was two too many. My daughter ordered the Pappardelle which was very good. My wife ordered a pizza, it was O.K. the Tiramisu was excellent.

The night we were there, the computer ordering/check system was down. We were made aware of this and anticipated some slight delays. Dinner was fine, but our dessert orders were taken, but never ordered in the kitchen. After waiting 30min we requested the check and departed. Not a favorite dining experience.

Our favorite Vail area restaurant!! There should be three choices to the question regarding recommending Zino: ABSOLUTELY YES should be one of them. I would absolutely recommend this favorite of the locals to anyone visiting our beautiful resorts of Vail and Beaver Creek or just moving to town. I spend a great deal of time in Italy and this is my go-to restaurant when I'm home in the valley. Consistency is no stranger to the high quality food, service, ambiance, and well-curated wine list that is definitely not the usual labels you see everywhere else. Most of what's on the list are artisanal wines from family-owned wineries. The menu features seasonal products with a huge emphasis on locally produced items. This winter is my favorite dish I've ever had there...braised lamb shank on polenta. It screams ITALY IN WINTER! And if you're not in the mood for a lot of food, then pop into the bar that's always buzzing and grab a pizza or some small plates (Happy hour is the best and cheapest time!). Buon appetito!

I enjoyed dining at Zino. However, the mussels were delivered to our table unfiinished and rather bland; whereas, the mussels were most delicious on my prior visits. The bread is delicious and graciously replenished by the waitstaff! Zino serves my favourite beer: Moretti la Ross’s, which is difficult to find in liquor stores much less restaurants and bars. Give this neighborhood gem a try!

Atmosphere is nice and service was excellent. However the food was just okay and for the price makes it all the more frustrating. Mussels appetizer and salad were good but entrees were very disappointing. Rigatoni - noodles were over cooked as was the sausage in the dish. The sauce just tasted very plain. I’ve had this dish previously and it was amazing. My wife also said her pork chop was also disappointing. Similarly she has ordered this before and was very pleased, so maybe this was just an off night in the kitchen. The prices here are not cheap so I expect the food to be good, especially since it has been great in the past.

We dine at Zinos each year on an annual ski trip. The atmosphere and service are always very good but our group of six felt this time that the food was ok but overpriced. My rigatoni with elk sausage was $28 and had little meat. Most pasta dishes are in the same price range and are not a good value.

We don’t frequent eat out because we are good cooks (husband former chef), and at home we use only whole, fresh, local high quality ingredients. But when we do, Zino is the place we go. This time we brought visiting relatives who love to eat out at very high end restaurants in the DC area. They loved Zino. Said they wanted to return rather than trying a different, “fancier” spot in Vail later this week. Our server more than accommodated the Vegan eater in our group by custom creating a pasta dish that she knew kitchen would make yummy. Thank you Zino for consistently modeling good service and delicious food prepared expertly. Try the Cioppino or Risotto. And the gluten free pizzas are a treat. All are super yummy!

This is a terrific restaurant to eat at when you are in the Vail area. It is about a 15-minute drive down the 70. So if the weather is not good it's not great to go there. We did! And we love everything about it. Atmosphere food service and value. Cannot recommend enough. Italian gentleman who is the manager of the restaurant was absolutely terrific and taking care of different situations. Food was delicious.. Don't hesitate go!
