Campo de Fiori Restaurant Review: This small, lively, rustic restaurant is always abuzz with Aspen’s scenesters. Even during the off seasons, the place is packed (maybe more so, given the discounts offered). The formula for success: its warm golden glow, evoking a Tuscan dusk; Della Robbia-style murals; the ever-present hospitality of the owners everyone just calls Luigi and Elizabeth; and the fine, earthy Northern Italian cuisine. Antipasti include everything from formaggi to frutti di mare. There’s a wide selection of soups and salads, pastas and risottos --- we recommend the spaghetti alla bottarga. As for entrées, try the chicken grilled under a brick with thyme pesto or the bouillabaisse-like cacciucco. Campo de Fiori has one of the most extensive selections of Italian wines in town, and a smattering of California bottles as well.
