We really wanted to like this quaint little place: it came highly recommended, the ambiance is warm (even if it suffers from the usual Italian restaurant's excess of in-your-face wattage) and staff was welcoming and attentive. Unfortunately that's where the positives stopped. We had two primi and two secondi and they went from bland, to bad to "WTH is this... More

It's the best restaurant around Sestrieri. The food is exceptional! It's a very rustic place, but have some of the beat food in town. It's a "must go" restaurant. Need reserve.

The restaurant's ceiling is a series of brick domes which adds to the atmosphere. The building must have served a different purpose years ago, as the brick work is old. Food was good quality and had a mid-range price. You will need to book on a Friday and Saturday night as 'locals' visit the resort for a weekend ski and... More

Visited the place with my family and friends. The restaurant was cozy but that is the only positive thing to say. Service was arrogant and food was not acceptable without any inspiration at all. I cannot believe the ratings it has been given.

Wow! What a place! We ate here twice and although more costly than the hotel we were in it was really worth it - about £30pp for 4 courses with wine. The owner is a really nice chap who seems to really want to take care of you. OK, I would imagine if it were full the service might take... More

A cheap tourist trap. Service unbelievably slow, a poor menu. We left without having what we ordered, since we couldn't wait any longer. Most of the clients were foreign tourists. Servizio inaccettabilmente lento, menu da ristorante medio di citta', cibo mediocre. Clienti per lo piu' stranieri.

Very nice and charming place, old cellar with stone vault, wooden floor covered by nice carpets...giving a very harvesting and intimate sensation. Food is great, at least what we tried....in particular I'd suggest the Tartare, which is simply amazing! 3 entries + 3 first courses + red wine + water + 3 dessert= 90€, which is a very fair price...

This is a nice little restaurant about 5 minutes out of Sestriere down in Borgata. Service and food were great.
