Self service lunch place top modern. Regular Italian dishes, pasta and also a great schnitzel. Well worth a visit when it is sunny you cannot find a better 'sun deck' with lots of seats and good music!

Lots of space and spacious seating areas on two levels. Serving food is little chaotic. It is on glacier so it has beautiful view on non foggy days

As you would expect for a slope-side restaurant it was very busy, I'd actually go so far as to say chaotic. They have a strange/crazy system where you have to prepay for your sandwich and drinks.

A lovely spot to enjoy fabulous views over the mountains and stop for a very tasty and good value lunch. We had lots of fun relaxing with a bottle of wine and watching much better skiers tackle the black run below us...before we set off for the more gentle post-lunch blue runs!

This is the only place to eat when you are up in Presena. Large, convenient seating area on 2 levels. Try to get a seat by window in order to enjoy the view over the valley. Food and prices - typical for the region.

Came up the glacier twice. One day beautiful views from the restaurant next very foggy! Still food nice, large portions and reasonable priced. Lots of seating but didn't feel squashed.

Great busy place at the end of your stay in Passo Del Tonale - on top of the glacier. The restaurant is located on the top of the glacier Prescena. Nice views and traditional food - rye bread, bacon and cheese. I recommend everyone who likes the beauty of the Dolomites and good skiing.
