If you're crossing the mont-blanc tunnel during lunch time, this place could be a great stop. I would highly recommend their specialty, pizza with porcini mushrooms! Not only for the pizza's which were tasty but definately worth the magic view of the highest mountain peaks of the Alps! Also the lunch menu was very reasonably priced although we did not... More

We had lunch here on our way to our holiday in Italy. The Pizzas were excellent (and certainly not "soggy" as described in another review) and huge. So, if you are hungry you will certainly be satisfied. Service was also quite fast despite the restaurant being quite full. But beware - read the small print on the menu because you... More

We arrived for lunch to a full house on the deck so we were seated inside. Service was a bit slow but they were extremely crowded. Food was mouth-watering. My husband had a steak that was delicious. I had the best potato gnocchi I've ever eaten. Dessert was to die for but portion size too big for us. Definitely worth... More

need I say more? For a pizzeria in Italy to serve such poor quality pizza is shocking. There are much better pizzerias up the mountain.

I travel 2/week between Milan and Geneve, I have eaten in many restaurants during the trip but I have to say that since I tried pizza in La Palud, I always stop there. The variety of cheese is incredible and desserts are also delicious. Also fish on friday is really good and better than what you can eat in many... More

Dined here during ski trip to courmayeur. Very poor service. Waiter put me at table next to condiments which he then stood by while I dined. I was dining alone and simply wanted to enjoy my meal and read my book and not have home standing within two feet of me watching. I had less then 1 minute to read... More

A very busy restaurant, but well equipped with staff. Vast menu. Our choice was for risotto porcini and pappardelle cinghiale. Well portioned, the pasta and the risotto were delicious.

The restaurant is very well located close to Funivie Monte Bianco, just outside the Mont Blanc tunnel and with a great view on the glacier. I was with a colleague coming from Switzerland and we decided to stop here for dinner. My Arnad lardo and Pappardelle with Wild Boar Ragout and Porcini Mushrooms were abundant and very tasty; the waiters... More
