“Best ski lunch in Sestiere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014 via mobile

Il Capricorno restaurant is the best gourmet ski lunch you can get in Sestiere. It is located just off the piste in a sunny location.

The menu has many varieties and the ones we tried were all excellent (but pricy). The deserts, especially Tiramisu, are also excellent. The wine selection is good and has many Piedmonte specialities (try Arneis variety).

Rhe restaurant is normally extremely busy, so it is worthwile to reserve table well in advance.

What a great little place, with proper ski in ski out facilities. After some amazing skiing on wide groomed slopes, it was off the skis and into the après-ski mood in under two minutes with ever-helpful staff hovering around discreetly. A lovely b'fast and great dinner and a bottle from their wine cellar for four great days, aided by exemplary staff. Not the cheapest, but it was worth every penny. Will definitely be back!

A heavy snow day forced us in and we entered here though the menu nearly put us off for starters at 18 euros!!
A very welcoming entrance with all staff taking our costs and ski wear things were looking good!!
My friends choose the seasoned which came in a burger format - well presented yes but serious lack of flavour left them leaving half each!! I had the shredded veal which was nice but severely over priced - the best stater was the soup of the day asparagus soup which was lovely thick and creamy and was also the cheapest starter at 13 euros!! Before the starters where eaten a bottle of red wine was ordered which didn't get poured until just before our mains around 30 minutes and from here the service went severely down hill!! Beers where ordered and not received for the entire meal despite asking numerous members of staff!! The main meals where tasty but lacked size and depth we all had fillet steak though the meal was very well cooked!!
We continued with coffee with no milk being out on the table this was also asked for 3-4 times before it was given to us!!
The bill was then given to us during coffee without us asking for it and numerous mistakes with extra waters being added to the bill!!
Wouldn't head back in a hurry for an overpriced poorly waitored establishment

Amazing hotel, a real home from home with great ski in and out facility. Staff were all lovely and attentive. One if the best hotels we have stayed in. We stayed In the 'Virgin' room which we found noisy due to it housing the main hotel security server in a cupboard within the room. Apart from that the room was more than adequate, warm, clean and well stocked with water. This place was a fantastic find and would totally recommend it.

Stayed inFeb 2013 with the wife. I wanted a hotel with a sauna, she wanted exclusivity. She won. Needless to say no relaxation facilities available. But food and service are outstanding. Chalet manager superb. Personally fou d it a little claustrophobic but wifey loved it. Probably wouldn't go again, but worth it as a one off. Guiseppe the manager made the stay supremely pleasant.

Had dinner twice in this wonderfully appointed restaurant on the slopes. In the summer try and get there early to enjoy drinks on the terrace with great mountain (and sunset) view. Staff is extremely friendly and makes sure all your needs are met. We went with 3 children and they were made feel at home from the start. Food is probably the best in the whole valley, service great and decor unique. Have booked a room for next winter as we can't wait to try breakfast and the ski in ski out facilities. Would definitely recommend this hotel/restaurant to anyone looking for a real treat!

My husband and I have just returned from a weeks skiing, staying at the chalet Capricorno Hotel. Perfect location for ski in ski out facilities, with the chairlift being only about 50 metres ski away, with very little queuing..!! It is situated roughly two km up in the mountain away from the main resort area where majority of restaurants and nightlife are. A skidoo "taxi" was always available if you wanted to visit. Roberto was a superb driver....:))
Food and wine good, rooms clean, cosy and always very warm. Beds were turned down every night, which was welcoming for a good nights sleep after a hard days skiing.
We arrived as total strangers yet left feeling we had made friends as the staff were very friendly and attentive from the minute we arrived and for the whole of our stay!!
Would definitely stay again if visiting the resort....

A portrait of a bygone age framed by mountains, woods, fields and ponds, nestled between the ski slopes of the Cottian Alps, in the upper Val di Susa. In the midst of this, you'll find IL CAPRICORNO, a charming mountain hotel which was opened in 1966 by the Sacchi family.
