The staff here are so friendly - it made our night! Half of our group had raclette, it was superb. The rest of the group had food envy when it arrived.

This restaurant was recommended for raclette and fondue. The five of us tried several different types, with meat, vegetables, mushrooms. All were very good. The menu includes only these dishes, but they know how to cook them. The quality of the cheese, of the meat, and of about everything else was very high. Also the chocolate fondue, our dessert, was...

How L’orto is ranked so low in the list of Sauze Restaurants is totally beyond me. It must be due to the sparse number of reviews…. If so come on you TA’s get reviewing!!! Mrs. HJ is veggie and so she had a cheese fondue and I had a full blooded ‘cook it yourself cow’. The portion was ample for... More

We found this little gem late in our recent trip to sauze and unfortunately the family who own it had a bereavement so they were closed for a couple of the days in our stay. We had the meat grill and cheese raclette the first time and the second time we had 1 cheese fondue and 1 meat fondue. Both... More

If you are a fan of either cheese or meat fondues, this is the place to be! High quality food and much variety in the kind of fondues. Also you can grill at your own table. Very friendly ambiance, nice wines to go with the dishes.

My partner and I visited especially for the raclette that was advertised outside. First impressions weren't great as the restaurant was empty and very dimly lit... Empty probably because people tend to eat later than us in Italy however the food was great and two other groups came in whilst we were sat down which added to the atmosphere. The... More

Visted this restaurant during our stay in sauze d'oulx. We Were after an authentic cheese fondue as experienced in other ski resorts and we were not let down. Lovely little restaurant with a nice atmosphere. We ordered the cheese fondue for 2 and a bottle of wine. The fondue was amazing accompanied by a fantastic meat board. The wine was... More

Went here on Friday 24th February, the menu had a great selection, but if you are after traditional alpine food then this is the place to be, especially if you enjoy cooking your own meat!!! Mixed crowd of people in there and a group of 4 came in fairly late but were still given a table. Overall, a great experience.
