Dined here in 2004 and we could only get in by our hotel booking for us it was excellent then.... Dined here again this September and am quite sure it's under different management and definitely not the same chef.... Was not impressed at all this time around...

Family of four enjoyed the stop over in Aosta and a well prepared meal. Get the beef in a red wine sauce. Chase down with a local red followed by the gelato with local crisp.
