Excellent dinner and service. A little bit Italy, a little bit Western. Added bonus...it was a chilly evening to eat outside, but they have fleece blankets to wrap around yourself to stay warm. We'll be back on our next trip to Telluride.

It took 45 minutes for our lunch to be served from the time we ordered. But that wasn't the horrible part. My husband has a severe gluten/wheat allergy...the kind of allergy that closes his airways. We made the staff aware of this several times when...More
