Overall: a very nice dining experience.
My dish of ricci de castagne was perfectly prepared and seasoned (it's chesnut flour past served with some sort of DELICIOUS lardy mountain prosciutto - not too salty and I love salt). I would have this dish again tonight actually. I then ordered the bocconcino de cervo (dear stew & porcini), which needed a bit of seasoning but was quite good.
My husband ordered menu speciale de porcini (23E): crostini (disappointing appetizer), risotto (good, small portion) and salsicia, porcini and polenta (very good especially the local juicy but not fatty sausage).
Wine: excellent choice selected from the 2 options on the table. For once, I wanted to order a half bottle of wine, which is never really enough for the meal but allows you to drive home safely up the mountain road since we'd already had apero in town [bar de Tinder!!]. The owner offered to cork the remaining wine of the 0.75 bottle, which is a modern custom I am familiar with in France. This allows you to drink just the right amount and we will gladly have the last 2 glasses this evening. It was a vielles vignes de donnas 2009.
No dessert and our tab was euro 79. Honestly not bad for a cute restaurant in a mountain village near a ski resort.
