Charming and warm atmosphere, every detail is taken care of. Very nice service and excellent food, with an interesting menu that changes over time. Excellent wine selection, by the glass as well as bottle.

Local food, served special and a nuce loaction for warm evenings and a apperitivo The tartar is super tasty and there are a lot of other dishes for each taste.

This place seems to be busy from late morning continuosly until late at night. Each time we've gone, the small parking lot adjacent has been full, and forces a search of the surrounding area for parking. Once there you have the choice of a table in a pleasant outdoor courtyard or inside at one of the many tables or at... More

Absolutely My favorite spot when I am in Trentino/Alto Adige! The food is superb and there is an excellent selection of wine! The service is stellar! The menu is not extensive but every item on it is delicious so you don't even think about it!

the courtyard offered a casual garden setting, the midday menu offered a limited selection, but all sounded good. We ordered a mixed plate of meat and cheese to go with some different open wines. Not on the menu, but they were more than happy to arrange this. Great place for wine tasting with a good selection of many local wines.

we passed again at Pillhof, and, we have to say, it's always the best choice! sitting outside, under the umbrellas, eating rice and fish, having (great) wines.... it's really the perfect place to enjoy both, lunch or dinner. we will be back again.

What a great recommendation from our hotel Napura! Nice location with a inner courtyard. A heartly welcome from Kathrin Oberhofer, the hostess. Good choice of mostly mediterranean dishes and a huge choice of local and non local wines. Each wine is available also by the glass. Great atmosphere and service paired with excellent food and wine! A must...!

We have been going to Pilhof for more than 10 years and it has had its ups and downs but recently more downs than ups, at least in our experience. Today was another down: we went for lunch and ordered a bruschetta starter to share and then a salad and a soup. And water. That was it, nothing complicated as... More

We had a romantic and delicious dinner there sitting in the garden. The inside is also very nice but the garden is very special. The service was very friendly. We want to go back immediately!

I've had the pleasure of visiting the Pillhof on six separate occasions and I have always been pleased with their presentations and relaxing atmosphere. Nestled among the mountains surrounding Bolzano, the scenery is breathtaking. The restaurant or "wine house" is comprised on dining on three separate levels indoors and outdoor patio dining in warmer months. The chef usually takes advantage... More
