Marvelous South Tirol tasting dishes and wines

Marvelous sommelier and wine pairing! I tried both creative and South Tirol tasting menus here. The creative menu was well done, but no excitement as it is somewhat the same as I could get in San Francisco in similar range of restaurants.

There are a number of places that can be either exciting or utterly exasperating in high season, and the region around Tesimo on the day of TÖRGGELEFEST may top the list. On this day, an incredible mass of traffic- and parking-jammed cars complicated by an enormous crowd of randomly-moving, street-occupying pedestrians made it virtually impossible to reach this restaurant. But... More

I had a good memory of the cuisine from a few years back, so I was well-disposed. Reception was unprofessional (we were left standing to wait for a while with zero acknowledgement), but we ignored this. No smile, no apology, but we decided to ignore this too - we're here for the food, not to make friends after all. Amuse... More

We have had the opportunity twice to have dinner at this wonderful restaurant which is so worth its michelin star. Their menu changes with the season and is REALLY creative. You will find dishes you can not even immagine and they will all taste delicious. The presentation is no less interesting: My soup plate was decorated with real flowers which... More

More is less.... Very nice restaurant in a rebuilt stable (11th century); stylish and pleasant atmosphere. Friendly service, very good food and good choice of wines.

Had dinner there with my wife on the Easter Weekend 2012. The expectations were tremendousely high given we read lots about the owner and they also were promoted by Lufthansa Business Class in October of 2011. The 1-star Michelin designation led us to have such high expectations. We were thinking this is to match a Gault-Millau 17 points restaurant. Our... More

I should start by saying that I am not at all the kind of person who loves very expensive, elegant restaurants. They tend to annoy me, I dislike the formalities of an overly attentive but distant service, and I often fail to see an honest relation quality-prize. Therefore I was very aprehensive when I went to zum löwen, but it... More
