This place is a waste of time and money if you are looking for a culinary experience beyond the classic italian pizzas. They really try hard to leave an impression of being a gourmet restaurant with a fancy menu and attentive waiters (until you order), but fail completely when it comes to deliver. We ordered steaks and they were unevenly... More

Dear Sir, thank you for your review. First, we are not, and we don't aspire to be, a gourmet restaurant. We are a restaurant with typical, honest, home made cuisine from the area and grilled meats. Please inform us wether and where you've found us to describe our place as a gourmet restaurant. We are sorry if you did receive... More

We had a great evening at El Pael. The pizza was amazing and the service was good. The restaurant had old pots, books, and original coffee grinders used as decoration, which created a very nice atmosphere. Highly recommended 😀

We were at the El Pael and got a very nice dining experience thanks to the owner Roberto Anesi. He suggested our dishes and the wines to drink with. Every wine was really good especially the 1979 Mosel Riesling he opened for us. I recommend this Restaurant to everyone and if you want to try some great wines don't hesitate... More

This was our second visit to Canazei, and our second visit to El Pael. This year we chose to visit on New Years eve, where the Restaurant offered a special 5 course menu with separate wine menu. Although the dinner stretched to almost midnight, which can be tricky with three tired kids, it was a beautiful menu of both light... More

Italien food is better than what you get here. And this reataurant is very much overrated. The pasta was tasteless and service lousy. When asking for tap water the waitor was rude without reason. We were ignored when we wanted to pay and had to go ourselves to the front desk.

Dear guest, I honestly find your review quite ridiculous. When you say "italian food is better" let me say that you haven't tasted any italian food but the typical mountain's cuisine. Spätzle and Schüttelbrot ravioli are two of the most sold dishes of our restaurant and, let me say with no doubt, ravioli is the most appreciated pasta among our... More
