Had dinner at Baita Fraina last night with a large group. The food and service were outstanding. The menu had so many interesting choices on it that several of us decided to share our plates. Among the delicious items were the mushroom filled ravioli, the pheasant salad, the tagliatelle (both with deer meat and lamb), and the veal cheeks --... More

Stumbled upon this place on a walk down from Mandres to Cortina after a trip up in the cable car. Stopped for a drink and to let the children play in the playground, looked at the menu, and took one of the last remaining tables for lunch outside! Good pasta, delicious lamb and the beef with funghi porcini was out... More

The food is always pretty consistent and the service too. Both are good. Try onion spaghetti and rack of lamb. The selection of steak tartare is good too. The prices are not bad considering you are in cortina. Have fun.

It is a nice place joinable by feet from Zuel in about 45 minutes. The food is excellent and the wine list is great (Italian and French wines).

Very nice restaurant, located out of town, 5 mnts by car. Tried tagliata manzo and cervo mirtillo accompanied with a nice bottle of Chianti classico riserva. Great food&atmosphere, just what you need after a good day at the slopes.

Separate small dining rooms within this restaurant give it a cosy feel. This was our most expensive meal in Cortina, although it was closest to the centre of town, so the lower taxi fare probably evened things out. Very traditional feel restaurant and we didn't think the cooking was entirely successful. The flavour of my venison loin was destroyed by... More

Friendly proprietors and excellent local cuisine in a warm, Tyrolese style chalet with great views over the valley where the Dolomites are Queen. A memorable lunch with fine service and generous hospitality, we will certainly return there if the opportunity presents itself.

Great food, relaxed atmosphere and friendly service. So good we went back 2 days later. I had 3 pasta dishes ravioli with pork, ravioli with beetroot and lamb tagliatella. All were really tasty and very well presented. Clientele were a nice mixture of locals and touristas. Wine could have been better, but we chose cheap.

If you don't know where to go and it's dinner time this is not a bad option: service is good and the food not bad at all. Obviously isn't the first option in town but it's a good alternative to the best restaurants around . During the summer it is very pleasant to seat outside enjoying the terrace! Inside it's... More
