I Will never eat here again. i got a greek salad to go and it was $14, half the lettuce was bad, there were barely any toppings. i paid $14 for a box of rotten lettuce. i eat lunch in aspen everyday and i will never go there again. a single calzone with no meat is $21??? way way overpriced, even for aspen

The pizza was ok, very thin paste, but not very good. But the price for my regular cheese pizza with one additional topping in form of arugula was much too high: 21$! Given the fact that they offered a special pizza of the day with bacon, arugula, parmesan and truffle for 21$! Conclusion: nice place where kids can do pizza topping themselves, but prices are much too high for the given quality.

The chicken panini was hot, fresh and well seasoned. The ahi panini was excellent, fresh and well seasoned. Our waitress polite, efficient and checked on our table numerous times. Prices represented a great value for the Aspen dining scene. Friendly staff who truly welcomed us to their restaurant.

Brunelleschi's is a great place to have lunch in Aspen. It has reasonable prices in a great cozy atmosphere. If you have kids, they would love it since they get a chef hat and can make their own pizza. I split a pizza and the jalapeno macaroni and cheese with my boyfriend but the pizza was enough for the two of us.
The service was very friendly and all the food was great. I'd recommend visiting Brunelleschi's while you are in Aspen.

Best Quality in Aspen. The price is very reasonable especially for the quality of food. Everyone was so welcoming and nice from the time we walked in the door until we left. I had the Paisano Pizza, Awesome! my husband tried the veal special. Every thing was sooo good.

HORRIBLE. Ordered a pizza that should have been great if the ingredients weren't drenched in oil and the pizza didn't cost $20 DOLLARS!!!!???? Wow, guess that place will be in Merlin's Pizza land soon...

We stumbled upon Brunelleschi's by accident, having a hankering for some simple and unpretentious Italian food....and we found it here! We sat on the outside patio which isn't picturesque or located on main street, but after all we were looking for good food and not a people watching experience like so many restaurants in Aspen seem to confuse. The service was quick and flawless, and the food was incredible. The portion sizes were perfect for us - we shared an appetizer of the bruschetta and ordered two of the thin crust pizzas. The food is simple, flavorful and delicious. They are not trying to be complicated or hip - this is great Italian fare. The bruschetta was a tomato-pesto-bococcini mixture served with hot and perfectly seasoned garlic bread. My pizza - the special of the day - had truffle oil arugula over proscuitto and shards of parmesan over a very delicious thin crust. Yum! Go here if you want *real* Italian food and value for your money.

I dropped into Brunelleschi's again last week to enjoy one of their great, light pizzas. We crashed the scene with half the MP2's (that's Mother Puckers for short) hockey team, following a Saturday night win - desirous of beer and some great fare. The place was jammed at 9 p.m. The hostess was very accommodating in squeezing us in and adjoining tables as they became available.
The pizzas here are thin crusted and a meal for one. Though a tad pricey at $15, it's worth it. My favorite pizza is the Basil Pesto, which comes with spinach, pine nuts and a tangy Gorgonzola cheese. Yum! I also hear the Paisano, ordered by several of my mates is very tasty. If you want a salad, I highly recommend the Portobello - grilled with roasted red peppers and goat cheese on greens. There's a lively local bar scene here as well. If you're a basketball fan visiting town, beware! The owner Gil is a hockey player, and this is a hockey bar. Chill out, catch an AVs game and meet some Aspen locals who are into more than just skiing.
