We had an excellent lunch here in June. The food was just lovely. Antipasto de la casa followed by Fillet Steak, perfectly cooked and presented. Most helpful staff. A high spot of my visit to the Dolomites. THANKS.

Called late in the evening to this small, atmospheric restaurant. The chamois carpaccio was delicious and our pasta dishes both excellent as were our desserts. Wine list is pricy so we had the mediocre house wine.

I went with my family and friends last week, the manager overcharged all the extras we order. Prices are not clear. Total bill was very expensive and food quality isn't worth it. I won't recomend this place at all.More
