Very romantic dinners and congratulation to Luca... More

The restaurant is barely outside the pedestrian area of downtown Livigno (1km). Great eating there both indoor and outdoor for lunch. The food's SUPERB! We were a large group and everyone was quite stunned by this culinary experience, all the way through dessert. Great price-quality ratio. A MUST in Livigno.

Came here for lunch with high expectations based on ratings. Did not come away disappointed. Were the only customers in the entire restaurant. Very friendly and attentive waiter suggested us non-meat dishes. We had schiatt for starters - delish!! Then we split their fantastic pizzoccheri and polenta with porcini. Extensive wine list worthy of fine dining places. Very homey atmosphere.

We were recommended this place by our guides. Definetely worth it. Great service and the pre-dishes were amazing. Only minus was the bread, which in general in my taste, needs some improvement in Livigno. The main dish was a little bit too much, but good taste. Worth a visit.
