A heavy snow day forced us in and we entered here though the menu nearly put us off for starters at 18 euros!!
A very welcoming entrance with all staff taking our costs and ski wear things were looking good!!
My friends choose the seasoned which came in a burger format - well presented yes but serious lack of flavour left them leaving half each!! I had the shredded veal which was nice but severely over priced - the best stater was the soup of the day asparagus soup which was lovely thick and creamy and was also the cheapest starter at 13 euros!! Before the starters where eaten a bottle of red wine was ordered which didn't get poured until just before our mains around 30 minutes and from here the service went severely down hill!! Beers where ordered and not received for the entire meal despite asking numerous members of staff!! The main meals where tasty but lacked size and depth we all had fillet steak though the meal was very well cooked!!
We continued with coffee with no milk being out on the table this was also asked for 3-4 times before it was given to us!!
The bill was then given to us during coffee without us asking for it and numerous mistakes with extra waters being added to the bill!!
Wouldn't head back in a hurry for an overpriced poorly waitored establishment

- A portrait of a bygone age framed by mountains, woods, fields and ponds, nestled between the ski slopes of the Cottian Alps, in the upper Val di Susa. In the midst of this, you'll find IL CAPRICORNO, a charming mountain hotel which was opened in 1966 by the Sacchi family. Since then it has been the jewel in the crown of Piedmontese hospitality, whose longstanding reputation is now in the hands of the Carezzana family of Turin, longterm devotees of the area. It's the perfect place for those who love old-style hospitality, where every detail and aspect has been carefully planned without ostentation. Here you'll experience that special Alpine ambiance, so unique and so inimitable, and a tangible sense of calm and tranquillity. Located 1,800 metres above sea level, it is the perfect destination for lovers of sport and winter activities, as well as those who love walking in the fragrant silence of forests in summer and enjoying the seasons as they come and go, transforming the colours of nature, nature that seems to reveal new secrets with every step. ... more less
