Mazzola's is in the running for best Italian food in Steamboat. As any Italian food lover knows, it's all about the sauce, and Mazzola's has very good, made-from-scratch sauces complementing all of their meals. Watch the paper for their seafood night specials. Their eggplant Parmesan and pesto pie are my favorites. Great place to take the family.
I love Mazzolas! They have AMAZING spaghetti and meatballs and it's such great place to take the kids! Next time you go there, definitely ask for the dough to play with. They'll let your kids shape dough however they want and bake it for them when they're done! So great!
I like food. I especially covet Italian cuisine. The golden gem of Italian cuisine in Steamboat is, Mazzola's Magestic Italian Diner. It's tucked away underneath the Hotel Bristol. Do not be fooled by having to hang out underground. The staff is immensely friendly, and they go out of their way to make your experience enjoyable. Most staff have worked there for years, if not decades. They have some of the best appetizers; mussels, calamari, stuffed mushrooms and garlic shrimp. Whether you desire a designer pizza or some of the best lasagna on the planet, this the is place. Oh, by the way, order the bolognese sauce on the lasagna. More meat, more meat, more meat. For extra decadence, order an extra gigantic meatball. Great food, great wine list, great servers and bartenders. Can you tell I love this place? P.S.- They just added this new pizza with duck confit, I may be a quack, but I love it.....
We had another outstanding meal last night at Mazzola's. Great service and food at a reasonable price. Can't expect much more than that. However, we have one suggestion for improvement. Seems there was this young kid busing tables with his pants down around the middle of his butt, clearly revealing his butt crack to patrons when he wiped off tables. That was certainly unappetizing. Someone needs to stand-in for his parents and give him some stern guidance about right and wrong regardless of today's teenage fashion.
