I just love the local food around Cortina. This restaurant offers rustic surroundings and rustic food along with a very impressing wine list. A warm welcome and excellent service is included. Try the spaghetti with onions.

This place was strongly recommended by our concierge. Great wine list (with every price range including half bottles and inexpensive options by the glass). It's 5 min from the village and worth it. The waiter recommended dishes and wine. Take the advice. We were thrilled with the quiet atmosphere. We found most restaurants in Cortina to be formal (the Italians dress up for dinner). Take your fur coat (do not wear a ski jacket, or you'll look like an American). In Cortina, do not wear your ski jacket unless you're actually skiing. The hotels can arrange for a taxi to/from the restaurant. Check my reviews for a hotel suggestion.

You have to drive a little bit up the mountain to reach this house. But it is worthwhile every single meter all the way up. The restaurant is situated in an old ancient mountain house. And the different rooms reflect the age of the building. The rooms are extremely beautiful reflecting the regions’ heritage.

The menu and the dishes we ordered all satisfied our high expectations and we will definitely come back. The wine list they have is absolutely exceptional for such a small place. You can choose wines between 25 and 2,500 EUR.

This restaurant is excellent. It was recommended to us by the concierge at the hotel. We were a large group of 7. We shared starters which included beetroot ravioli, onion pasta and pumpkin gnocchi. For a main course I had shoulder of pork. Just delicious. The restaurant is about a 10 minute taxi ride from town but well worth a visit
