We had dinner here while staying in Cortina. Little bit a discrepancy between scenery in front of the restaurant ( cows in the stables ) and fine dine dishes inside...I was expecting everything to be less formal and decorative. Food was delicious , very good cheese selection. Compliments to the chef, service was correct.

We had dinner here while staying in Cortina. It's a lovely restaurant in the mountains above Cortina. The service was exceptional and the food was very well done. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

This place was truly an experience!! We would have never found it without the Tripadvisor, luckily we had rental car during our stay so the location was not a problem for us. The place was beautiful old alpine house or inn in the middle of nowhere. We were the first customers at 8.pm, we reserved the table day earlier. We... More

Our latest visit to El Brite di Larieto was for lunch on the most spectacular sunny day I have seen in 16 years of visiting Cortina d'Ampezzo. We were given a deluxe table on the terrace facing a view that cannot be described. One could put up with almost anything just for the setting, and that's usually what one has... More

Wow. That's all I can say. This place was great. First, the restaurant is a little out of town, on the road to Cristalo and/or Faloria but before them so not too bad at all. The restaurant is literally in what appears to be an old farm house, with dogs on the porch and cows in the fields. However, do... More

When it comes down to it, this restaurant is just a set of tables in the front room of a farm house. But what a restaurant. The food is imaginatively composed and beautifully presented. What you see is not what you get. You see grated parmesan but it is actually dessicated chicken breast, enhancing an already deeply chickeny salad. And,... More

The driveway from the parking lot to the restaurant entrance was crowded with dairy cattle, so we walked through them to get to the door. It was our introduction to the aesthetic of this restaurant where all or most of the ingredients come from this farm. It is set at the base of the mountains, so the views are spectacular.... More

The menus of this place are stunningly sophisticated, an adaptation of modern cuisine blended with alpine traditions, using ingredients from their own farm and stables. Very whimsical food, great wines and friendly atmosphere, about 10 minutes (vertical) drive from Cortina, with breathtaking views of the surrounding Dolomites. Everything is home made, from bread to desserts.

I've lived in northern Italy for 7 years and have learned a great deal about regional Italian cuisine. The food in this restaurant was very good, but it was overpriced. The service was ok, but it could definitely have been better. It may simply have been an August thing. Perhaps I will give this place another go at a different... More
