“Nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

Due to the location we were expecting a lot more, especially the friendliness of the staff. Cafe desperate (We did not eat) ! Going local will definitely another! a renovation of the building would not be bad there.
Nothing special for Cortina d'Ampezzo (classy place)

“Eh”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

Food was very good--service was not. Waitstaff was cold and rude. Atmosphere loud and busy. I would not go back here!

“Just OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

My wife and I were staying in Cortina, and the hotel recommended the Croda for dinner. It was a short walk on the pedestrian walkway, and the food was just fine. Nothing spectacular, but certainly OK. Service was timely but very stiff; the wait staff looked and acted as though they had things they'd rather be doing. Also, there is a "service fee" of 3 euro/person added to the bill. No wonder no one tips!

“cibo buono e di qualità/ good quality food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel(B&B) nearby.
It has a varied choice of dishes to satisfy all palates. I ordered the Casunzei Ampezzani which were a lovely thin homemade pasta containing abeetroot stuffing They were then doused in melted butter, freshly grated parmesan cheese and a sprinkling of poppyseeds on top. DIVINE!
The same (local specialty dish) was also tried up in the mtns at another restaurant that paled in comparison.....
My husband ordered the spaghetti with speck, red radicchio and parmesan cheese also EXCELLENT.
Pizza's have a large selection to choose from as do their large salads.
Desserts not to be missed were the vanilla icecream with a warm fresh raspberry sauce on top, and KAISERSCHWARM- a sort of omelette with jam, raisins and pine nuts- really delicious.
One sour note was the service which was difficult to catch our waiter/any waiters' eye! They seem to ably ignore you for whatever reason, and that can be annoying.
Regardless of that minor detail, the food is certainly worth the visit there.

“Money over quality”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

This restaurant is on the main street of this charming town, and its large menu attracted our family of six adults. It was very disappointing. It is crowded and the service is abysmal, not only slow, but inaccurate. The food was disappointing. My spaghetti was probably the worst I have ever had at a restaurant—undercooked, thin flavorless sauce, no meat evident.

It obviously caters to tourists, and like similar restaurants (try finding good food at Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco) it depends on its location. Were it not for the town, this restaurant would not last. Who would return twice? Only tourists like us are suckered in, only to pay exaggerated prices for poor food.
