Our Story

WHERE IT ALL BEGAN

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.

Come visit us for a taste of Italy in the mountains.

“Buon Appetito!”

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.

“What a Gem”

What a gem in Edwards, Colorado! We had back-to-back delightful dinners at this amazing restaurant. Each time we tried new dishes and no joke - every dish was beyond superb. The presentation of food and each dish’s quality was on-point. We will most definitely be back and will be happy to dine in this gem again!

“Highly Recommend"”

The food here always meets expectations. The staff is always super friendly but still professional. I have eaten here many many times. I will eat here many more times. Pizza is all about the crust and these guys do it BEST! If you need somewhere to eat and are staying in the Vail Valley, Avon, Edwards, Vail, Beaver Creek, Eagle, or anywhere I highly recommend Zino.
