The place is situated closely to the ski lifts and the terrace is packed when the weather is good. We were also there when the terrace was full and the experience was average: the order was not complete, drinks were missing and the food was...average. Furthermore they use a lot of plastic and one way plates which generates lots of waste, waste they hardly manage to get rid ofMore

We visited Livigno on May this year which apparently is not the ideal time because its the low season and most places were closed for renovations. This restaurant was open though but only for lunch. They have a nice menu that caters to everyones needs...and the price is ok considering its in central. The food was freshly prepared unlike the other places we ate (it was pre-cooked). The host is extremely nice and friendly, she has a way of making everyone feel at home. I recommend the steak!!!! I went back again and again just for that.More

I would have loved to have given this place a higher rating but with the exception of the very friendly and warm service, there was nothing to be complimentary of. The atmosphere was lacking with the restaurant virtually empty and the food was well below...par for Livigno. The Sciatt, which I normally love so much were really underwhelming- barely warm and lacked that usual crunch on the outside with the cheese lacking flavour and tasting a bit like plastic. A real shame considering how great this dish can be! The fillet wasn’t too bad- the sauce was nice and rich but it needed to be to give the meat some flavour. Was unfortunately also a bit tough but nothing too bad. The chips were actually nice- crispy on the outside and soft in the centre. The crepe also didn’t blow us away- there are far better from the crepe food stand in the street 100m from the restaurant on the main drag. The fritters were also a real let down- dry and lacking flavour and texture variety, which was a shame as we had high hopes for this dish too. Overall really one of the very few poor dining experiences we had in Livigno, the service was excellent but with so many amazing restaurants near by, I don’t see us returning in the future.More

We were warmly welcomed and informera about the dishes we chose (from the local specialities section of the menu). The restaurant seems to be family run and the atmosphere was nice.

At the bottom of a number of blue slopes and next to the ski school this restaurant is in a great location. So it’s very convenient for families and the staff are very friendly. So far so good you think.... 8 of us(2 families) choose...to grab lunch here after a morning of skiing. Our paninis and hot drinks arrived after a bit of a wait. But the french fries and hot dogs were nowhere to be seen. We repeatedly asked as our posse of kids was getting hungrier and louder by the minute. 30 minutes later the dogs and fries arrived. Not good! We passed this off as an exception and went again 2 days later only to have the same thing happen again - the hot food was delayed by at least 20mins. Once is an exception, twice in 3 days is the norm. I’d say this place is ok for paninis but anything else will involve a significant delay! What a pity!!More

There are 2 carpe diems: the day time version is simple skiing food and drinks at the slope by the Central Ski School. A little bit pricey but the position is without parallel and the welcome is friendly. In the evening the restaurant becomes a...more sophisticated venue serving local cuisine. All presided over by the magnificent Sophia. We would recommend the risotto made with red wine and the local cheeses and meats, some of which are made by Sophia's family from their own animals. Our meal was finished by a 'grappa' flavoured with plants from the mountain and picked by Sophia. It is very easy to get basic Italian food in Livigno; it is usually good, But you can get lasagne all over the world. Eating a cheese made in the valley from cattle raised there is different experience and that is what makes carpe diem such a pleasure.More
