This has got to be the best après ski bar in the world! Can't comment on the food as we didn't eat there, but 4-6pm each evening it is pumping! Great dance music and people dancing on the tables. A saxophonist and cheap drinks 4 till 5. We loved it as a bunch of 40 odd year olds, and it... More

Great location at the end of the pistes near to a ski lift, perfect lunch place for skiers. Compare to other restaurants, the food portions are huge - great value for money! The drinks, bombardino and vin brule in particular were excellent.

We stayed at Olympic Village 20-27 Dec 2015, visited this restaurant twice with My Husband and two Children, and both nights all meals were fantastic! The pizzas were probably the best we had throughout the resort, and on xmas day I ordered a 'spinach gnocchi' which was outstanding. Would highly recommend.

This was probably the lowlight of the trip. The location at the piste is pretty good and may that is part of the problems they seem to have. From the first visit it appeared that the a lot of cold air easily circulated making it rather uncomfortable sitting on a number of seats - mainly near the door. From the... More

We're staying at the Olympic village but decided to try this place instead. My partner had the pizza, said it was delicious, myself and nephew had the lasagne, couldn't fault it. Service was excellent, and they didn't mind our 4 year old.

We went there for a tipical 13:30 lunch. I had a lasagna, tasty, but then the rest of the day I felt like very heavy. My son ate a pizza, it was very good. Service wasn't quick, but we weren't in a hurry, so no problem. Good Genepy, prices are ok. Decent place.

Worst place we went while in Sestriere. We wait 40 mins for our food having to deal with rude waiters each time we felt the need to ask about our not coming pizza. Turned out to bet a nightmare. A place to avoid at all costs, not only you can find better you don't have to deal with rude employees... More
