We had an excellent dinner here -- they seated and served our party of 13 (!) efficiently and professionally, with few flaws. The food was beautiful, and almost all was impeccable and deserved a "fine dining" label. We were very impressed by the service and the food both, and the cost was quite reasonable. It's a good option for an exceptional meal in Pozza.

I had one dinner, each meal was superb and properly presented.
From the wine, from the appetisers to the dessert, everything was delicious.

The cuisine is interesting but not excellent. The restaurant tries to be “Michelin like” but the dishes are not very tasty. There is a lot of ideas in food composition but it is not always exactly what should we expect. The dishes are very small so I suggest to take more of them not to be hungry at the end of a meal, but we should remember that the cost per person, who wouldn’t like to be hungry should be around 50 to 60 EUR. Waiters are very polite and helpful, which is big plus of this place. The worst is the balance between the price and quality, because for me the restaurant is overpriced.

The best restaurant in Vigo Di Fassa. The chief is a genius! The best risotto we ever tried! Thank you so much!
P.s. thanks to Kate which found a place for us for these fully booked days.

Quite a few refined dishes in this cute restaurant.

The complimentary bead basket offers several appealing options to go with the very good olive oil and whipped butter. A couple of varieties of bread were a little under-baked.

Tagliolini with truffle featured perfectly elastic, high quality pasta, cooked just right. The truffle shavings were few but intense. In the other primo, canederli were elegant and soft, and the accompanying beetroot mousse/espuma was intense - but the star of this dish was the cheese (I think Trentingrana)!

A main of venison was good, the meat tender,. But it was not well trimmed, with some gristle remaining, and also it was forming a pool of bloody fluid since it had not been well rested. The advertised pine-nuts were not in evidence, but there was an excellent pumpkin puree and spinach as garnish. The other main was vegetarian, a very tender cabbage leaf filled with creamy (goat) cheese, and some delicious panfried ceps.

Desserts were modern, captivating versions of the old classics, tiramisu and pannacotta. All good, balanced and light, though the pannacotta was on the heavy side.

Prices tend to be a little high for the region, but on the other hand the quality was very good. What was a little annoying was that they were higher than what was advertised on the website, not a good practice I think. On the other hand I appreciated that wines are very fairly priced. Service was cheerful, energetic and efficient.

On my experience this is one of the best choices in the area in its price category.
