Fantastic!

Wow! What a place! We ate here twice and although more costly than the hotel we were in it was really worth it - about £30pp for 4 courses with wine. The owner is a really nice chap who seems to really want to take care of you. OK, I would imagine if it were full the service might take... read more

A cheap tourist trap. Service unbelievably slow, a poor menu. We left without having what we ordered, since we couldn't wait any longer. Most of the clients were foreign tourists. Servizio inaccettabilmente lento, menu da ristorante medio di citta', cibo mediocre. Clienti per lo piu' stranieri.

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
