Great pizzas - don't bother with anything else -maybe the sharing platter.
Friendly service, really nice buzzing atmosphere.

We always visit La Pignatta when in Tignes and this year it was really great. There was a problem with our booking (we had been double-booked) but the owner sorted it out very quickly. Service was fantastic and very friendly. Our food was outstanding. We had the homemade terrine, which was delicious, then I chose the pigs cheeks with creamy polenta. They were so gorgeous I have been trying to recreate the dish ever since I came home. Everyone in our party of ten thoroughly enjoyed their food. We had a variety of wines, which were all excellent, particularly the Chinon Bergeron. Food is reasonably priced and there is a children's menu, which is great. A must-visit restaurant in Val Claret!

Not just home made pizzas, but steak served with marrow bone, veal ribs, roasted veggies and oven baked potato wedges (no chips). Excellent service, we went early with the kids at 6.30pm and did not have to wait long for food to arrive. No particularly cheap, but very good value for the extra quality of the food and its presentation. Certainly recommended.

Anyone who visits alot of ski resorts will have the same complaint about the variety and quality of food- which is generally stodgy, bland and over- priced. Luckily for those in Tignes/Val Claret and Val D'Isere, LA PIGNATTA delivers incredible food, which is as tasty and healthy as it is reasonably priced and made with love ( it feels like!). The chefs truly care about what they serve, and you can see them preparing fresh dishes in the semi-open kitchen whilst nursing a glass of two from the restaurant's fine selection of wines. From mouth-watering pasta and pizzas to asian-inspired salads and the traditional savoyarde cuisine, there is enough here to keep you coming back for more. The staff are attentive and multi-lingual, (they were very good about catering for two of our group who were lactose intolerant and on a diet respectively), the only problem i found was being able to do my trousers up after the delicious feasts we enjoyed. Its a lively place at lunchtime and evening so try and book ahead, if not its worth the small wait in the bar for a table. Their desserts and cheese selection are also killers but very worthwhile!

We had a meal with our three boys. The kids meals were very good value which included and main, drink and desert for around E10, very cheap after prices on the ski slopes. The adult meals very all very good and the service was fantastic.
