Description: Il ristorante pizzeria Kilt e situato nel comune di Claviere nel cuore delle valli olimpiche, sede dei giochi olimpici di Torino 2006. La casa, che ospita il locale, e una delle prime costruite a Claviere verso la meta del 1800. Il locale si presenta accogliente e luminoso. Il soffitto e caratterizzato da volte a crociera confluenti su una colonna centrale sita nel mezzo della sala. Soffermandoci sulla colonna, possiamo intravedere scolpito sulla pietra l'anno di costruzione 1854, e il cognome della famiglia che vi abitava. Originariamente, il locale era adibito a una stalla che serviva al cambio dei cavalli della diligenza postale che da Torino si spingeva fino a Briancon. Durante la seconda guerra mondiale, vi fu un passaggio di militari scozzesi i quali vi trovarono rifugio. Probabilmente forse in segno di amicizia o di gratitudine, il futuro locale che sarebbe sorto avrebbe assunto il nome Kilt. All'origine fu un night club e dopo la ristrutturazione avvenuta nel 1986 dagli attuali proprietari, il nome venne mantenuto. Il bancone del bar, come le porte e tutto il legno presenti in loco, provenne da una baita di Bardonecchia dei primi del 900 e contribui al rinnovo dei locali all'insegna del rispetto e preservamento dell'aspetto montano-naturalistico

“A great place to eat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

We first visited Kilt about ten years ago as a large group of family and friends. We received a wonderful, warm and friendly welcome from Roberto. The food was excellent Italian fare and the service matched the food. My wife and I returned twice this year to the same warm and friendly welcome from Roberto; he even remembered us from our visit all those years ago! The food was, as before excellent; Roberto even went to the fish market to get a sea bass specially for my wife. Now that is service and always with a smile. Go there!

“Excellent Italian pizza during our ski holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

We stayed in Montgenevre to ski a few weeks ago but decided to walk to Claviere for the day (takes 25 mins) and ended up at this restaurant.

The food was excellent, the staff very friendly and accommodating of the fact we speak zero Italian and the price was good for what you get.

Very enjoyable pizza, I would recommend the pizza "atomica"
