This place is outstanding. We got 7 dishes, with som very good wine. The style is proper and nice, but it would be okay to visit this place in a par of jeans.
Price and level of food is fair.
I will go back to this place.

Another excellent dinner at this temple of the Val di Fassa gastronomy. Some of the creations by Paolo Donei in my opinion stand comparison with those of more famous multistarred chefs. The signature dish egg in polenta crust with truffle, cream of cheese and spinach, for example, behind its apparent simplicity hides much preparation work, uses great produce, and it embraces you with a memorable subtlety of flavours and textures.

A primo of spatzle with herbs, girolles and a speck infusion summarises what this cuisine is about: strong, traditional flavours elevated to delicacies of high refinement and elegance.

Two mains, a venison and a duck, both had at their core a fantastic, chunky, tender and perfectly cooked piece of meat, with clever and tasty garnishes around them: the braised red chicory giving moisture to the duck, with almond and smoked oil flavours; and the Jerusalem artichokes (coming in different ways) with a Pinot nero reduction.

My only small reservation is just a tendency to saltiness, but this is personal taste.

You can't skip desserts at Malga panna: a parfait was just good, but a 'cappuccino ice cream' with liquorice and milk was fun, creative, beautiful, deliciously balanced, hovering between the bitterness of the liquorice and the sweetness of the rest.

You get so much more during a meal here, amuse bouche, breads, pre-dessert and petit fours. The prices are very, very fair such abundance and quality. The wine lover will also find satisfaction, gently guided by the always informative maitre Michele and the rest of his team. And the setting...well, that is magical (a little upholstering of all the benches would make it even more comfortable).

I only manage to visit the Malga once a year, but every time I'm looking forward to returning.

We turned up without a booking but as we were only 2 they fitted us in. All the staff were attentive and friendly without being stuffy. Yes it is expensive but at lunchtime there are cheaper plates. We did a mix and match and had all courses and lots to drink and it was €150. BUT it is exciting food worthy of a Michelin star. They showed us the morning's haul of foraged fungi and then did amazing things with them. We tried things we had never had before like mustard ice cream and hazelnut custard. The unexpected amuse bouche and post prandial tisane with homemade chocolates were beautifully presented and all our courses were exciting and delicious.

Pleasant location, elegant but at the same time characteristic of the area. Dishes that recall the tradition but still very sought after in detail, flavors and even the eye wants its part.
