Beautiful Setting

Beautiful setting. Fantastic food (ravioli della nonna e risotto alla Valsostana ). Only accessible by ski's for lunch and with a snow cat in the evenings. Beautiful setting, wonderful food, expensive and terrible service. Given the cost of the snow cat a better deal at lunch than for... read more

Sage ravioli and beef carpacio not to be missed. But all polenta dishes are a treat too. If you can, order mushrooms in advance in season.

This place has one of the most fantastic views on the Mont Blanc. This, together with a good service, a family owned restaurant, makes it a 5 stars in my view. Truly a great and relaxing place. To visit!

I've been skiing in Courmayeur for 10 years or so and honestly I don't think there is a better slope side restaurant in the resort. Huge terrace overlooking Mont Blanc. Unbeatable on a sunny day. The staff are delightful, chatty and attentive. The food was excellent. I have not had better gnocchi anywhere else....it literally melted in your mouth.

There is no finer place to sit and have a long lunch than the balcony of La Grolla on a sunny winters day. The views are spectacular: the whole of Mont Blanc / Monte Bianco provides a backdrop. The food is a clever mix of local specialities and international favourites, and is well prepared and presented. The friendly staff are... More

We visited while skiing. Our guide had reccomended that we try this place, and we did on our last day. V. quiet, us and 3 others. Food fine, service a little slow. We could imagine that it might be a good place for a 'long lunch', but not a quick one - would we go back? - I think yes....

The trip uphill on the small winding road is definitely worth it already just for the breathtaking view that you have from this place. Monte Bianco glacier is almost a stone throw from here and once you'll look at it you are going to feel quite small ...... no matter how much you just ate in the restaurant.... We had... More

This is an institution. Have been to it multiple times, and it is a really great place. Very hard to keep the standard at this level for so long. Downstairs is quite interesting. Had the smoked trout, and an infinite variety of pasta's. Has to be experienced if you are driving through to France and/or skiing in winter.
