We were recommended to Ristorante Da Aurelio by a very helpful service professional at the Rosapetra Spa Resort (also fabulous!) The chefs know each other and it was wonderful to have one great chef recommend another chef...who also turned out to be great! The restaurant is a drive out of Cortina but well, well, worth it. This was a fine culinary experience from beginning to end with Chef Luigi table side to explain the night's offerings and to help us make our selections. The restaurant has recently been renovated (with more experiences to come) and is beautiful. The environment is casual and comfortable and the staff is eager, helpful and accommodating. The food is locally sourced, much from Chef Luigi's garden - he and his family live upstairs. A dining experience at Ristorante Da Aurelio is the direct result of Chef Luigi's labor of love and really...should not be missed!
