Benzina has become our favorite restaurant! The bread is made in-house and absolutely delicious! My husband’s favorite is the spicy soppressata pizza and I favor the Cauliflower. For dessert, the Affogato and the Panna Cotta are beyond scrumptious! MANGIA The service is also top-notch! We give it ten out of ten stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Five of us, ranging in age 16-80, all thoroughly enjoyed our meals, which consisted of the special, sea bass over linguine, fettuccine Alfredo, chicken piccata and shrimp scampi. Restaurant took extra pains to ensure proper preparation of gluten free dishes for our daughter and granddaughter. Place is not fancy, but food is yummy and people are friendly and accommodating. Huge thumbs up!

About the restaurant

We have been to Italy and studied it's masters. We have tasted (a lot) of wine. We have searched for the best ingredients, and learned and perfected the best recipes. Why wouldn't we be the best Italian experience in the Vail Valley!
The idea of growing fresh fruits and vegetables in the Rocky Mountains might seem crazy to some, but for us it is just another step in perfecting our craft. Our Chefs and Gardeners labor tirelessly to bring you the best produce and ingredients available seasonally
We try each day to live and work with a purpose. Each step of your evening has been pondered. We try hard to bring you the food you crave and anticipate your every need while you are dining with us. From the stuzzichino when you step in our door to the parting sips of limoncello.
