We spent two days in Cortina and this was by far the best place we ate. The staff was very friendly, the restaurant was comfortable, and the food was delicious - all for a very reasonable price. We're definitely going back next time we're in Cortina!

A group or twenty friends had a fantastic four course lunch, with all-we-could-drink wine. The meal fulfilled my definition of the best: you have to put the fork down between bites so as to savor every separate flavor to the fullest. Besides the wonderful food our hostess was over the top friendly & accommodating. I wish I could return tomorrow!

Cute, local restaurant with good pizza and local dishes. Staff was super helpful and spoke good English. Would definitely go back. They're closed on Tuesdays.

Looked really nice, but the pasta was the worst we ever had after living in Italy over ten years. Gnocchi under cooked and like raw dough, the starters uneatable. If you go there order a pizza only.

This is a quiet and rather subdued place run by locals mostly for locals during off-season, which is when I visited. The chef owner is not on the must-try lists but he will manage to do a decent job on a mostly varied menu. The pizza I ate was a little soggy and non-descript, but we were with friends and... More

This place was a little off the main street through Cortina, and we had a little trouble finding it, so glad we did. Of the three restaurants we visited, this was easily the best. It feels very authentic, no nonsense, just great food in a very welcoming surroundings with warm hosts. It seemed to be ran by a mature couple,... More

This restaurant does not feel touristy. It seemed to have a lot of local customers and the Alpine cuisine was delicious. The staff was very friendly and helpful with our inability to speak Italian.

12" thin-crust individual pizzas with local cheeses, speck, and vegetables. I had the eggplant/gorgonzola, my husband had the speck. They were both fantastic and we ate them all, despite thinking, "Oh, this will be too much." Nope.
