“Personal touch, good local wines”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2010

Most of the restaurants in Val Gardena serve some variation on South Tyrolean cooking. Which is perfectly eatable, often even quite enjoyable. But if you're looking for something slightly more personal, it's difficult to find reliable advice on the web. And when we asked at our hotel they did not really get what we were looking for but directed us to another rather formal hotel restaurant with bland but expensive dishes.

So even though the Costabella is not in any way Michelin material, we quickly found it a favourite. Basically the same South Tyrolean food - but with a little more variation and personality. Plus an attentive, charming and knowledgable hostess. And a long list of selected local wines where they, as they say deliberately, have not fallen for the temptation to add wines from other districts. And we agree - Alto Adige is one of the hidden gems of the world's wine districts and deserves to be explored in depth.

So if you keep your expectations on a reasonable level - after all, Val Gardena is no gourmet capital - chances are that you will enjoy this restaurant as much as we did.
