“Lovely small Wine Bar with great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2012

Agree with most reviews below!
A relatively small place, tucked away just down the main street in Courmayeur, so be sure to make a reservation, for any night of the week.
Food is really good, simple, authentic, very Italian, very affordable, and large portions, for those of you with a big appetite! A simple decor, like a nice informal enoteca!
Great wine selection, also by the glass.
Service is very nice and friendly.
They also do take away (like a lot of restaurtants in Courmayeur), so don't be scared off by this.
Really a must do when in town.

“Very nice wines.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2012

Lovely couple who own it gave us a great local wine tasting with local cheeses and meats. Haven't eaten there for dinner, but would think it would be worth a go.

“Excellent value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2011

Excellent service, very good dessert and local wine (recommend the Torrette Supérieure at € 4.50 a glass). 2 courses, a glass of wine and coffee at € 19 per person. Strongly recommended.
There are some dishes (e.g., lasagne) that are only available on 24 hours' notice - so book ahead.

“BEST IN COURMAYEUR”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2011

I've always been in love with Italian food but I think I never truly knew what Italian food was about until I had 2 dinners in Al Vecchio Torchio...The food is DE-LI-CIOUS...Absolutely no words to describe Simone's lasagna (and carbonara) and Giorgia's desserts! You have to taste it to believe it! I just wish I could taste some of their famous wine selection-maybe next time! These people put as much heart and devotion in their food as they are in their guests. I was welcomed with an amazing hospitality and had few lovely chats. The locals tend to pop in for a glass of wine, cheese platter and a friendly conversation. If I ever will be in the area, I promise you guys to step in even to say "hello"! You made my holiday worthwhile! simply- THE BEST!
