This is not only about the food but it's about the experience. You take a gondola and a little chair lift up and there is an mountain paradise right there. No need to walk but for the hiker there is miles/kilometers of paths.
But back to the Refugio. The service was hospitable, the food was good and the beer was great.
After enjoying all of it you can place yourself into the lounge chair and just stare into the space. And what a space there is! Don't hesitate, just go!

A fantastically beautiful lake surrounded by equally impressive mountains. In an area inundated by lakes, Lake Moveno stands out. The village of Molveno at the shores of the lake is a quaint village with cobbled streets going up and down the side of a mountain. Shops sell handcrafts and typical herbs, oils and preserves of the region. Near the lake there is a large recreational area where families can enjoy picnics on the grass, different sports and water sport to while away the time or just relax or sunbathe.
From the centre of the village of Molveno you can go up to the Pradel Plateau. You can walk up the slopes of the mountain through the Forest Park or take a cable car to the first level where there is a Refugio which has a very good restaurant, cafe’ and a really fabulous view of the green lake. The cable car hugs the steep side of the mountain. It’s very fast so it only takes a short time to go up. From this height you can see Lake Molveno spread out before you in all its splendour.
If you want to walk up the rest of the way you can stop at the educational farm of Malva Tovre where children would love the animals and you can also taste typical products.
If the walk up the mountain is too hard for you there are the chair lifts. It’s a slow and comfortable trip to the top. Be sure to bring a cardigan or a rain jacket as it can be cold up there! When you reach the top you are on The Pradel Plateau. There is another Refugio with a restaurant and rest rooms. But you go up there for the fantastic views. You are surrounded by the bare crags of the Brenta Dolomites. Even at that height which is over 1500 mtrs The Dolomites tower over you! It is a breath taking view and you can also see the drop to the valley on one side. It’s a fantastic view, which if you are in the area you shouldn’t miss!

An extraordinary mountain refuge at the end of the Pradel chairlift where you will be served fantastic home made pasta and other dishes by friendly and attentive staff. Eat inside or out and absorb sights of the Brenta Dolomites towering above you
