“Lovely traditional restaurant”
Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

The quality of food was very good, service was fast, the atmosphere was relaxing.
A bit expensive if you like to drink good wine...

“Outstanding cuisine and delightful cuisine in quaint alpine setting”
Reviewed August 8, 2013


Outstanding cuisine and delightful service in quaint alpine setting.
Truly fantastic and imaginatively presented dishes, we had a simply delicious loin of deer with a great local red wine, a recommendation of the charming young female sommelier. Worth staying in cavalese just to go to El Molin.

“Nice pizza at the foot of the mountains”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

This may look like an unlikely area to have excellent pizza, but in fact they take very good care of their ingredients and their dough preparation (70 hours of rising...). Their 'caserecce' range is a little more expensive than average but the quality is very high indeed, with top ingredients: 'piennolo' tomatoes, local ricotta, and other cheeses, Cantabrico anchovies. The only negative is sometimes a slightly uneven cooking.
The secret to the consistently high quality (I've been here several times) is the supervision by the Michelin starred chef who runs the restaurant (El Molin) on the other side of the building.

“Yes, you can have great pizza in the north!”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Long gone are the days when you could not eat a decent pizza north of Rome: and the pizza at Excelsior is really and truly excellent. I am not sure whether the 70 hours of leavening are all necessary and not at all gimmicky, the slow leavened pizza is divine, with superb quality toppings like piennolo tomatoes, smoked ricotta and catabrico anchovies; or caramelised onions and val Averta goat cheese.
And this should be no surprise, as this pizzeria is a venture at least partly run by one Michelin star chef Alessandro Gilmozzi of El Molin fame, who conceived the "rustic" pizzas we had (sourdough pizza). Highly recommended. These pizzas go for €12 each, and are worth every penny. For a cheaper option, you can have standard pizzas for about €8. Ambiance is rustic, and definitely children friendly.
