We had a family get together of 25 people at this remote rifugio. The food and service are great. This is a rare family-owned "rifugio" that has been for generations. The petting zoo and small lake is great for kids. We sunbathed in the presence of the majestic Brenta Dolomites. Truly a stunning and unique experience. Only accessible by cable... More

I silent a couple of great days based here and trekking the neighboring trails. Wonderful wooden rooms with private bathroom. Excellent food. Incredible peace in the evening. Manuela is a warm and friendly hostess. They have a few pets (donkey, pony, goats) that children and my dog love. Incredible view. Reasonable prices. A great experience.

We absolutely loved this place. Hiking up two different routes from town we ended up at the Rifugio Viviani for lunch on both occasions. It's an interesting mix of Italian and Germanic cuisine. Views are stunning and for those less able to walk, the restaurant is only a couple of minutes walk from the main Pradalago lift I had the... More

If you have trekked from Lago Nambino to Pradalago, this Rifugo is a nice stop for lunch. We sat outside on the terrace and ordered Gulash soup. Nice ambiente and good service. Recommendable.

Great food-great service. The staff went to great lengths to make us feel welcome. Go a little early to avoid the ski lunch crowd (before 1pm).

It is a quite difficult to understand that you can find such a proper restaurant in the middle of ski runs. There are very good food and wines, everyday different pastas which are heavenly but also semi-ordinary ski food Schnitzel from turkey. Service is great. We visited twice and found out only one minor issue; it took a quite long... More

This is the meeting point for one of the ski schools so it is always busy and the food is very good for self-service. Most of the lunch spots also have 'proper' restaurants and so does the Viviani - next time I come to Madonna I am going to book some of these and lunch in style!

Stopped at Viviani twice during our ski holiday. The restaurant was always extremely busy, and while the first time we managed to get a table quite fast, the second time we had to wait for 25 minutes - try to book in advance if possible. Friendly and efficient service, interesting menu at decent prices - and don't forget the excellent... More

The self service side is like any other lunch establishement in the mountains but the restaurant side is beyond anything I've experienced before. They serve hearty well cooked meals and have a great selection of wines to accompany any 3 course meal. We celebrated a relatives birthday here and it was just perfect for that purpose and vetween the runs... More
