Nice atmosphere, better quality than the other restaurants in the area. I really do recommend this place, we went there twice with large parties and everyone enjoyed their food.

El Pael is a very popular restaurant in Canazei. We read about it prior to coming and made reservations. It was a good thing we did because it looked like it was fully booked the Thursday night we came. The food was good as I had the regional sampler as an app and a steak for entree. My girlfriend had... More

We had a three dishes tasting with recomended Italian wines. The food was delicius in a nice environment. Sound level was a bit high due to many people in the room. Recommended if you want extra good food. The owner is a wine conneisseur if one would like to discuss wine

They really try hard to leave an impression of being a gourmet restaurant with a fancy menu and attentive waiters (until you order), but fail completely when it comes to deliver. We ordered steaks and they were unevenly... More

We had a great evening at El Pael. The pizza was amazing and the service was good. The restaurant had old pots, books, and original coffee grinders used as decoration, which created a very nice atmosphere. Highly recommended 😀
