I frequented Mezzaluna in Aspen for its Happy Hour (Pizza & Wine), and was glad to see the new restaurant in Willits offer the same deal. Reasonable prices, good pizza, and decent wine.

The space at Willits is beautiful. Service has been good each time I've been there. And there's parking!

Basalt's restaurant scene is definitely on the upswing again!

I'm here on business for the month of September and what a treat to find this place just one block from my hotel. It's simple, unpretentious, delicious, great price point and has a good vibe. Wood fired pizza including gluten free options for crust and pastas too. I'll be visiting a few more times before I depart.

One would think that the new restaurant in Willits, Mezzaluna, which is affiliated with the one in Aspen, would be able to prepare a decent pizza. Well, you’re wrong, very wrong. Most importantly, the dough that is used is terrible, prefabricated somewhere offsite, maybe in China. It is definitely the worst pizza I have had in the Roaring Fork Valley, worse than Domino’s and even Pizza Hut’s. Furthermore, the pricing is cockeyed: a Sausage pizza with roasted tomato sauce and fresh mozzarella is $15.50, but a Margherita pizza with roasted tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella, sliced tomatoes, and sweet basil is $16.50, but if one adds some slices of sausage (not bulk), the price is $20.50. One is paying an extra $5.00 for a few slices of non-local tomatoes and basil. Please. Another person ordered a simple greens salad with a free-range chicken breast add-on. That might have been acceptable if the chicken accompanied the salad but as it was, it came after everyone had finished their meal in spite of our repeatedly asking “Where’s the chicken?” Maybe someone had to run over to Whole Foods to buy some chicken. The one entrée that looked appealing was the Pappardelle Bolognese.
The service was quite good except for the failure to serve the chicken and the ambiance pleasant, although the sound-absorbing panels on the ceiling were not very effective.

Wood fired pizzas are awesome. The rest of the menu is great too if you want to go a little fancier. Friendly family atmosphere. Great cocktails featuring locally made spirits.
