The food is out of this world. The chef is approachable and translated the whole menu to us, explaining each dish. We had the tasting menu and every dish was delicious. The view is amazing, ask for a seat outside even during the winter.

The best meal we had in a week of great dining in the rifugios of the Dolomites. Chef Gigi's degustation menu was exquisite- many herbs and edible wild flowers were sourced in the alpine meadow behind this beautiful retreat. Lovey amuse bouche of some cheese with caviar appeared before we even decided on the menu. The beef with porcini mushrooms... More

There are good meals and then there are meals that you remember long after. We knew within a few minutes of arriving that our dinner would be excellent. Wonderful setting, friendly staff, top quality food and great wine. Well worth the drive.

The restaurant is not only on top of the mountain , but is probably best in dolomites. It stands in the middle of nowhere ,trip there is rough and the road is sometimes closed of the snow . But the trip is 100 % worth to travel.

i went back to this resto after few years. The quality of the food, the ambience, etc are intact and always at top level. Difficult to find such consistency over the years. Driving there from Alta Badia is a bit long especially in january with snow everywhere. The meal is worth the trip though. The menu includes some local classics... More
