Italian Craft

IS OUR SPECIALTY

“Famiglia.” That wonderful Italian word meaning “family” is a key component of the Zino Ristorante dining experience. Although technically a restaurant, Zino has all the delightful hallmarks of a small, family-owned and operated Italian trattoria: a locals favorite that’s perfect for enjoying a warm, family-like atmosphere, delicious home cooking from the heart and an imaginative wine list.

The Zino Experience

QUALITY IN EVERYTHING WE DO

The Zino Experience

QUALITY IN EVERYTHING WE DO

At family owned and operated Zino Ristorante in Edwards, the food is Italian inspired, but the dynamism and warmth are pure Italian. Given our Mediterranean influences, the menu is never boring and always delicious. Biannual menu changes pay homage to the seasons freshest ingredients. Mainstays include the always-popular house made burrata, but executive chef Nick Haley’s creative streak of his grandmother and mom inspired dishes come alive as seasonal menus take shape.

Whether for drinks in the vibrant upstairs bar or vinous libations to pair with Haley’s menu, Naples-born partner Giuseppe Bosco’s well-curated wine list has something for all palates and budgets. Most of the wines are Italian – primarily Tuscan and Piemontese – but guests can also find excellent choices from American wineries.

Bosco’s infectious energy in the front of the house and the inventive cuisine of well-traveled, Piemontese-trained Chef Haley combine to make Zino a locals favorite that Vail Valley guests can enjoy year-round.

Nick Haley

EXECUTIVE CHEF / CO-OWNER

Nick Haley

EXECUTIVE CHEF

CO-OWNER

Haley, born in Saskatchewan and raised in Denver, trained in Paris and Piemonte, Italy before settling in Vail. His passion for cooking is rooted in his childhood, cooking rhubarb, strawberries and East European dishes with his mother and grandmother.

In July 2011, Haley became both Zino’s executive chef and co-owner. Before becoming executive chef Haley often states the value of how “Everything else up to that point was practice.” Prior experience defined how he wanted to run the kitchen, treat his staff and, just as importantly, be treated by them. His culinary style, born of his love of Italian cuisine, would now be Zino’s style.

Giuseppe Bosco

GENERAL MANAGER / CO-OWNER

Passion for the art of hospitality defines Zino Ristorante partner and general manager Giuseppe Bosco. His restaurant life began at age 15 in a dish pit while he was in high school in his childhood hometown of Naples, Italy. From there, steppingstones on his arduous career path to Zino included jobs on Mediterranean cruise ships and at the iconic luxury hotel Suvretta House in St. Moritz, Switzerland.

In 1999, Giuseppe crossed the Atlantic after landing a coveted job at L’ Originale Alfredo di Roma Ristorante in Disney’s Epcot. His westward career path continued to Colorado where, in 2004, Giuseppe joined Campo di Fiori. He spent a short time with the restaurant in Aspen, but settled in Vail as Campo’s general manager where his path crossed Alisha Quinn’s. In 2007, the couple married.

The couple took a leap of faith and joined veteran Vailrestaurateur Kevin Clair when he reopened Zino in June 2010 after a nearly 10 year hiatus.

With partner and talented executive chef, Nick Haley, Giuseppe successfully crafted a warm, hospitable year-round Italian dining experience that has become a favorite of locals and guests.
