Delicious Tirolean food and pasta dishes! Good prices. Nice view. Eight minute ride outside of Castelrotto. Comfortable seating. Reservation may be needed.

We loved this place. I think we were the only English-speaking people there that night. There were mostly locals--people playing cards in the bar, families, couples. They offer both Italian and German/Austrian food. Both were good.

Spent a few days in San Michele, trekking a lot in the neighbouring S Tyrolean valleys and hills - and by a lucky chance found this restaurant on the first evening of our stay - so we returned nearly each evening for more :) Really liked the warm atmosphere, cosy, friendly staff, and whatever we ordered was really great.

Easy to find on the road between castelrotto and passo pinei. Very good local food, do not miss the tagliatelle ai finferli (mushrooms), the costolette di agnello (lamb with spinach and roesti) and enyoy the ice cream with warm strawberry. Price extremely correct. You may have a nice walk from castelrotto .. you are there in 90 minuts - return... More

Huge portions of good food.. Mostly alpine cuisine. The pork shank was fabulous. Ten minute drive out of Castelrotto on an easy road. They don't speak much English but there is an English menu. Good service and nice view

My wife and I enjoyed this restaurant during a week of hiking in the Dolomites. Food is delicious, prices are reasonable. We had a variety of local dishes and they were all terrific. Get there early; the restaurant fills up quickly.

Place is really good: typical atmosphere, typical dishes (extremely abundant), quality is good and the prices are fair enough. During the busy season the place gets filled up easily

We were looking for something other than pizza and pasta, and wow, was this place delicious. We had white asparagus soup (one bowl big enough to share). Pork with mushroom sauce was divine as was the goulash. Portions are huge, so keep in mind. Service was amazing...our young waiter was really great answering all of our questions about the food...

This restaurant does not take reservations. In fact, people line up at the door to be seated, perhaps due to the #1 TA rating. There is a bar area and the main restaurant, but you can be seated in the bear area. Families with young children were welcome. The menu was in German and Italian, but the servers spoke English....
