We ate here on our second night in Cortina after getting the recommendation from our hotel and a last minute reservation. After making the dark, windy drive up we were concerned that Google maps was taking us to the wrong place until we turned the final corner and came upon this gem, perched on the hill, and glowing. The interior... More

We found this restaurant through TripAdvisor and came with reservation. The owner was very nice and gave us a table with very reasonable time to finish since he was fully booked. The staff was exceptionally nice and helpful and the courses we choose were great. If you go to Cortina Dampezzo don't miss this one.

This is a great restaurant with first class menu, wine list and delicious fare, all framed by a beautiful setting in the Ampezzo Valley. When you come here on a Saturday night in season as I did, you basically meet the world, the rich and beautiful world, God Bless! The staff is on level with the rest and service is... More

I recently went here with my wife. This was the best meal we had during our trip to the Dolomites. The staff were very friendly and warm. The food was very very good. The views were also amazing as we sat outside and looked at the mountains from our table. The restaurant is somewhat secluded which is nice as it... More

Beatiful setting, excellent food and service. The restaurant' specialty, the onion pasta, is indeed very good but it is a big portion; if you are not very hungry, consider taking it as the main dish. The maitre d' is fluent in Italian, English and French and is very patient and attentive to every request and question. Thank you!

Was here for lunch years ago and loved it. Returned last week for dinner and it was every bit as good as I remember! One of the best in Cortina d'Ampezzo!

Exceptional. The food was simply superb and the views from the terrace just added to the occasion. Dining on the terrace was quite comfortable as there were ample heaters to keep us warm. It is quite expensive but worth it and is accessible from the piste and the road. You’d be well advised to pre-book as it is very popular.

We ate at al Caminetto five times last week. Everyday it was packed, mainly with non skiers. The atmosphere is vibrant and the clientele interesting. The owner always puts us at our ease, remembering us from our previous visits. Unlike our visits last year when we ate on the terrace, this year we were inside and the experience was no... More
