Very nice and charming place, old cellar with stone vault, wooden floor covered by nice carpets...giving a very harvesting and intimate sensation. Food is great, at least what we tried....in particular I'd suggest the Tartare, which is simply amazing! 3 entries + 3 first courses + red wine + water + 3 dessert= 90€, which is a very fair price...

This is a nice little restaurant about 5 minutes out of Sestriere down in Borgata. Service and food were great.

The place is really beautiful and charming but the food is terrible. We were very disappointed. We expected better dishes. The steak tartar was absolutely not eatable, the potatoes with cheese were a catastrophe. I really do not understand how this restaurant could get such a good rating. The waiter was arrogant. Price for the dinner for 2 adults and... More

Reading all the enthusiastic reviews, we decided to give it a try. Well, we had a nice experience, but there is definitely room for improvement. The place is nice, an old cellar with stone vaults, quite romantic if the tables wouldn't be so crammed in - at the end of August there were almost no customers, so fortunately there was... More

Wonderful location with stone vaults, very nice, comfortable and romantic. The waiter was quite unprepared for both the cooking and the wines. The grilled toma was not well cooked and cold inside. The goose was not so tasty while the deer was definitly too salty. The onion soup and the pork shin were alright. We were also not lucky with... More

The restaurant is located in a old village house wich gives it reall nice atmosphere. They offer tasty local Piemont food; we had some really good fresh pasta and meat and more. We also had some great house wine and probably the best thing were the home made desserts (one of the best tiramisu I've ever had - and I... More

The restaurant is set in an amazing vaulted cellar which is very cosy. It doesnt seat many and was full on the night we visited so i would recommend booking in advance to be sure of a table. We ordered 3 antipasti and 3 primi to share and each one was fantastic. The wild boar salumi was particularly good and... More
