Zino Ristorante has a long history in Edwards Colorado. Originally opened in the 90s as Edwards’ first upscale dining option, the restaurant took a 7 year reprieve before returning in 2010, to the delight of many longtime residents. When reopening Zino Ristorante, Vail restaurant pioneer Kevin Clair, of Sweet Basil and Mountain Standard, partnered with Giuseppe Bosco, whose restaurant life began in a dish pit in Naples, Italy, at age 15.
Soon after Zino opened, Nick Haley, a young, talented chef took over as executive chef and partner. Having lived and cooked in Northern Italy, Haley was the obvious choice.
Today, Zino has a reputation for its warm, lively atmosphere and delicious home cooking from the heart, known for both traditional Italian dishes and its evolving, creative combinations.
