The entire menu is very well written with plates which surround all flavours and tastes. Good selection of local wines.
Very good "pizzoccheri" as well as pasta with venison ragù. Good "polenta traragna" Buona polenta traragna but low quality salamella. Brasato without taste, more like a carrot puré, with hard meat.
A real pity due to ingredients: in a place like this all ingredients must be local, considering it is few meters far from the best butchers and dairy of the valley. Instead when I asked where the meat come from, after tasting the untasted brasato meat, the answer was "a distributor in the plains"!!
Very good service: very young girl but well experienced to manage some issues during the service (she apologize because one dish of the same course comes 5 minutes one after the other one)
Prices correctly fit the place.
The potential is great! Suggestion is to move on with the excellent local producers and take time to recreate with genuine and the best local ingredients the best receipt of the valley. It´s not a place where to work in hurry, it´s a beautiful environment with an amazing view, so treat food as is it deserves.
