Food quality is very good, the restaurant very traditional and cozy. It is not cheap and service should be adequate to the price level. However highly recommended

Mainly underground hotel-attached restaurant that reminds me of pre-1989 Eastern Europe: terrible decor, lots of staff, awfully low food quality. Just had one meal there which was overwhelmingly awful (sitting at a table of six friends - we all agreed). Carefully read the other tripadvisor reviews to understand what's going on. And ignore the management responses to bad reviews. It's... More

We dined with friends during a ski weekend this month and loved this restaurant. The food was outstanding. The lamb chops and lasagna were excellent. The ambiance is intimate and conducive to small or large groups, with individual, cottage-style dining rooms that make guests feel as it they are the only ones the staff is catering to. Service was outstanding,... More

The decor (lauded in previous reviews) is just weird. Plastic tourist tat and hunting memorabilia. The main course was tough meat, but the cheese fondue pretty tasty, made with truffles. Not the best, but ok.

Through Trip advisor we found this restaurant located in the hart of San Martino Di Castrozza.. It was incredible be dining in such a rebuild old house surrounded by original pieces of tools and furnitures which made the history of this area! Delicious food from the starters till the desserts! Very welcoming and knowledgeable staff! Must comeback!

We dined at this restaurant on the advice of the owners of the hotel where we were staying. Environment amazing. Plates of high standard, with unique flavors. The wine really good. Gianluca owner, made us feel at home. Definitely to be recommended. Smoking room available. Good restaurant for your evening in San Martino di Castrozza.

Caratteristico locale la cui ambientazione è l'originale trasposizione di una vecchia casa del Primiero.

Il ristorante consta di 4 salette in stile rustico: Il Volt (dove si riponevano gli attrezzi da lavoro); La Stube (originale del 1835) con una vecchia stufa a "musat" (il locale dove si viveva); Il Tabià dove veniva riposto il foraggio per il mantenimento invernale del bestiame; Il Canevin dove venivano conservate le provviste:
formaggi, salami, carni affumicate..

I posti a sedere sono circa 50 ripartiti appunto nelle varie salette; la cucina vanta il merito di combinare sapientemente i prodotti della zona alla continua ricerca di nuovi sapori comunque legati alla tradizione.
La cantina ha inoltre un centinaio di etichette atte a soddisfare anche i palati più esigenti.
