“Not bad; not good.”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

Nice location and atmosphere, to be sure, but only average food at best. Kind of bland, we thought. Not especially imaginative we didn't think. Overall, we were a bit let down.

“Good service - food below average”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

We had the menu with local food and none of the four courses tasted well at all. It seemed like the chef had a very bad day, and the staff tried to compensate for it. The pasta was grey and tasteless, the meat was so dry you could use it a weapon, and the appetizer was just boring. Overrated here on TA.

“Refined and buzzy”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

A great wine list and lovely traditional food. The pancetta is to die for. You will love it on the first, second and third visit. My only niggle is that a restaurant who aspires, as this clearly does, should change the menu every no and then (the menu is the same as when I last visited 12 years ago).

“Must visit”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

The best restaurant in the area. Very comfortable, located in a few hundreds year old basement with old fashion design gives you very pleasant atmosphere. The chef is great specialist, having Michelin stars, cooking masterpieces. Really the prices are very competitive, there are 4 or 5 restaurants with the same price range but this one got the best value. The wine list is very good and with reasonable price too.
The only issue this one is always fully booked. Take reservation day or two before (it is for winter season).

“Well presented food in a comfortable setting”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

A comfortable resturant located in a cellar basement. The food was very nicely presented, though the portions were not especially generous after a serious day's skiing.
