“Warm and cosy, great simple italian food after a days skiing”
Reviewed 28 March 2010

We went to The Cow three times during our stay. It caters for families and doesn't take bookings. You need to get there early. Ski gear is fine. A great atmosphere with the lovely stone buildings and big fireplaces. You can have a drink at the bar while you wait for a table. Pizzas and pasta is the menu. Reasonably priced and large serves. Wine list is simple and quite pricey, all local wine.

“OK pizza”
Reviewed 24 February 2010

I expected more, The pizza was pricy and just OK. Perhaps we should have had another Turkish Kabob.

“great pizza”
Reviewed 27 January 2010

We had a take away pizza which was really excellent. I'm sure it is a nice place to eat in but have no experience of that.

“the most delicious spagetthi i've ever tried :P”
Reviewed 21 December 2009

There's only two persons (1 waiter and 1cook) working when we went because it was during day time but the service is so fast, friendly and the taste is awesome. It's a small restaurant that you must try to find it like the gem and order as many menus as possible because all of them is so amazing!

However, since the restaurant is quite small, if you happen to sit inside, it's not so good because it's so dark there. To sit outdoor is the best choice.

“Yum!”
Reviewed 22 September 2009

We go here a lot... it's great pizza and a very cool environment. I find it a bit squished up sometimes with the booth seating being a bit small for groups... but the pizza is ace, the staff friendly, the fireplace warm! Perhaps a bit pricy for pizza, but then I never feel ripped off. Forgot to mention the garlic bread... FANTASTIC, do not neglect to order a loaf!
