Description: Originally, in the middle of 800 centuries, the building was used as a stable for the changing over of horses for the Postal Service which went all the way from Turin to Briançon. On the main column there is a stone sculpture inscribed upon which is the year of construction of the building dating back to 1854, along with the name of the family who once lived there. During the Second World War, a regiment of the Scottish Army passed through and sought refuge in the stable. Probably the name Kilt came as a sign of friendship and remembrance of the Scottish visit. The building has since been used as a club and, after restoration in 1986 by the present owners as a restaurant, the name Kilt was kept. The bar top, the doors and all the wood in the building came from a wooden chalet in the town of Bardonecchia in the early 1900s and contributed to the preservation of the buildings appearance as an old mountain chalet.

“Excellent”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

Don't be put off by the name, this is an Italian Restaurant, The title goes back to WW2 when some Scottish Officers stayed there and the name stuck. The Host was very attentive and speaks French and English as well as native Italian and who knows what else. The food was very good at a reasonable price and I would recommend the house Carafe of wine. You could not find better

“Worth the trip!”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

Should you ever be in Briancon, please go up the mountain for 15 km to arrive at The Kilt and have a splendid lunch or dinner. Too bad that we couldn't sample everything, so we will have to go back.

“Almost perfect italian food.”
Reviewed April 13, 2012

Since we spend much time in Sicily it was a pleasure to try northitalian food. Service was very personal and friendly. The food very enyojable in all, the "carbonara" perfect. I think the restaurant is perfect for families with children. Reasonable prices in a warm hospitable atmosphere.
