We stopped here for lunch after hiking around the meadows on the top of the hill. We took the Funicular to the top and meandered around taking breathtaking photos and hiking around the meadows. Lunch was superb - everyone had something different - soup, salad, pasta, sandwiches and beer, coffee, and tea!!! The service was excellent and each dish was... More

After taking the Rasciesa cable car you find yourself in beautiful scenery, with great viewes. Lovely walking possibilities, both very easy (on a wide, even path) and more adventurous. Get a walking map first at the tourist office. In Winter you can slide down to the middle station with a hired sledge; or walk up to a small chapel. Rest... More

If you want a short mountain hike, you should climb the mountain with the "Funicolare Rasciesa" from Ortisei and walk to Rifugio Rasciesa (and back). Sitting outside, you will have a lovely panorama of the Dolomites. The food is good and the head waitress is always in a great mood. You will know what I mean when you have been... More

We did not intend to have meal here. We went up to Rasciesa for the walk, it took about 2 km from the funicular station to this restaurant/cafe. Many people took rest in this cafe before continuing their walk. The view is superb, stunning. Weather was good too. Whichever angle we took picture, it will be nice picture. We stopped... More

Usual mountain restaurant, but with very beautiful view in very quiet place. You can rent a sledge at the station of funicular, take few rides and enjoy hot chocolate on the terrace or inside. There is a big wood stove inside, which is good for wet gloves

After getting the funicular railway from Ortisei to Reschesa, we stopped here for refreshments on the way up to visit the chapel and crucifix. The apple strudel was the best we ate during our week stay. Other meals looked home cooked and hearty. The large outside terrace gives fantastic views over the valley below.
