We went with friends,theirs and our kids, for dinner to Il Meloncino. All of us, with no exception, really enjoyed our meals. The service from the waiters and the owner was outstanding. We spend a week in Cortina and visited various restaurants. This was by miles the best one. A visit is a must, if you are in Cortina.

Absolutely worth the trouble to get there. We intended to arrive at sunset because we had heard that the views from the top were outstanding, however we spent so much time trying to actually find the place that it was dark when we got there. When we finally arrived we were worried because there were hardly any cars in the parking lot and the place looked empty, typically not a good sign. But once we sat down and the food started coming we were ecstatic. The best meal I had in Italy, hands down. Definitely go, but be sure to get REALLY good directions first!!

We found this restaurant again, they changed their location many years ago, and we did not find it anymore, then we forgot about it. This year we found it on a restaurant guide, we had lunch there, and it was WOW!! I was very happy. When I told this to the owner, she was so happy, too and we hugged!

This was our best meal in Cortina. It is expensive and worth it. The Porcini and chanterelle mushrooms were served several ways. We started with the steak tartar topped with chanterelles then had a lovely salad of Porcini and chanterelle mushrooms with parmesan salad. My main course was the ribs with chanterelle mushrooms. You can tell I love mushrooms and this was the best mushrooms ever. The waiter new we loved our meal so much he severed us an extra side of mushroom risotto just before desert which was also fabulous. The owner at the hotel where we are staying at said this was his favorite restaurant in Cortina. But he said next time we must get the specialty which is spaghetti with onions. We will be back. Thanks for the AWESOME SERVICE. There was a small local wedding in the next room so it must be a great place to have a wedding too.

Owners are very nice.
