We visited the restaurant that was recommended by our hotel.
The atmosphere in the restaurant was very warm and welcoming.
We ate homemade pasta and great Polenta with beef souce.
All was very good.
But most of all , the owner,Elizabeth, was helpfull,kind ,spoke fluid English and explained about all the good things you can eat.

We enjoyed the place and recommend.

I was introduced to this place some years ago by a local. Starting from then, I kept visiting the restaurant once/twice a year.
The food is always delicious. Plates are linked to the territory, as you normally expect in a restaurant located in the mountains. At the same time, you have the clear perception that every preparation is very well cared by the chef's own hand, as you may expect in a renowned city restaurant.
The wine list contains a long, extensive list of wines from the Valley, plus some more options.
The service is truly helpful and all waiters are more than available.
The ambience is a mountain one, well arranged and very comfortable.
During my last visit, today, we had few plates that were absolutely remarkable:
The local risotto, made with bread and cheese, absolutely suggested.
Then Lamb saddle, duck, veal medallions (out of the standard menu, amazing).
Panna cotta was good as well.
The grilled options (didn't try this time) are normally very well prepared.
Definitively suggested

We arrived after lunch service, but were given a meal. Wonderful reception, excellent valdostan food topped with a fine gamay. Great way to finish a walk to the waterfall at lillaz.

Our first dinner was so flawlessly excellent, we went a second time in 4 days and were not disappointed. Also known as Arturo's, this restaurant serves local specialties. Everything we ordered (both times) was superb. Prices are not excessive and the service is beyond compare. We also liked the local regional wines.

I want to thank other reviewers, because of their reviews we checked out the restaurant and found that they also have a B&B upstairs. We thought it was ideal: after a day of hiking we could just go down and have dinner in the restaurant (Elisabetta, one of the 2 owners, will keep a table for you). Great local food: I had a salmerino (salmon trout) caught at the lake of Lillaz (just south of Cogne) that the waiter filleted for me at the table which gave me one of those Michel Roux's service magic moments! The pasta is made fresh by the kitchen crew, run by Elisabetta's brother and son of the original founder, Davide, really a family-run place. Service was friendly and helpful. It was packed every night with locals when we were there, clearly a very popular place. It is almost impossible to not have a primi platti, a secondi platti and a dessert, just because all the food sounds so nice, and it's regional. And the best thing of all..after we left we bought a copy of the Slow Food Osterias of Italy book 2010..and Lou Ressignon was in it plus the risotto we had was in the Osteria Slow Food cookbook as well. A culinary experience and joy! When we left I was close to hugging the chef!
