Chalet Mattias is definitely a nice place to eat in Livigno. However, do not overestimate it. We were not fully convinced it deserved its michelin star during our lunch. We went for 2 types of degustation menus, the local one and the modern one. I really enjoyed my starter, foie gras variation, but that was about it. The next dish, salmon variation was quite tasteless just like the main tuna dish. I tasted the other main dish as well, lamb, which was better, but it still was not at michelin star level, in my opinion.

We have visited quite a few michelin starred restaurants in Suedtirol, most of them being way above Chalet Mattias in terms of food quality. But it still might be the best choice around Livigno for fine dining.

We couldn't wait for a 200 euro dinner to end... The choices are only 4 set menus, the cheapest is 54 euros and the other three are 78 each. For a change of one of courses from the fixed menu you pay 8 euros. The rest is extra. Every course was very disappointing, but what was more disappointing than that - the service. No happy faces... no explanation about food and long long waits between the courses. Basically very little afford from the personnel. We couldn't wait to get out.....

Matthias definitly belongs to the Champions League of cooks in Italy.

After some years with experiments in molecular and french haut cuisine cooking (both on an excellent level and very interesting) he now reached the top level in improving the traditional meals of Livigno and Italian alps to absolute perfectness. Paired with an high level of creativity he creates innovative meals and tastes which have their roots in the local tradition.

The taste is very fine tuned without big show elements. The wine cellar is excellent. You always get for every meal a wine suggestion with perfect fit (by glas! They even had the Solaia from Antinori on a "by glas" basis).

This January Matthias had even an excellent menu fitting to Whisky! Creativity and tasting experience at the highest level!

We know the meals of Matthias since 2005 and had every time the perfect consistence and taste. That even makes the very positive difference to big restaurants with 2 or 3 Michelin stars, where the quality sometimes fluctuates.

The service is allways perfect and friendly. The atmosphere relaxed for enjoying the excellent meals. No "chi chi" or overdone "Silver" show like in some Michelin star restaurants.

Chalet Matthias is worth a long trip to Livigno (nice town for tax free shoping by the way!). Do not miss it!

We have been here second time and both visits were great. It was about us, food and nice wines. Not poshy, not loud. Just great food. Nice creations not too much, just enough to still feel nice.
