This restaurant is the main restaurant of the Hotel Adler, distant about 300 meters from the hotel itself. It is a typical restaurant of Südtirol and offers dishes wchich are also typical de Südtirol. You can have dinner and meal on a normal price-scale, but you also can eat very very good and pay the equivalent money.

We have been there for a dinner. As we arrived quite early, when the restaurant was almost empty, dark wooden furniture and silence have not inspired us at first. However, the staff was professional and friendly, the food was absolutely delicious, and so was the local pinot nero wine. I would absolutely return to this place if I am back... More

The Finsterwirt forms part of a family group, that includes the downstairs wine-bar, as well as the hotel Goldener Adler, a short stroll away. The restaurant is on the first floor and has the perfect balance of Tyrolean charm and formality. It isn’t stuffy by any means but it is a very elegant establishment. The restaurant is part of the...

We had been here for dinner about 30 years ago and wondered if we would find the same quality again. We did! The pleasure starts when you walk into the restaurant; great atmosphere and a feeling of almost being in a museum. The food is still top quality and the wine list just goes on and on. We ended up...

Der Finsterwirt is a very good restaurant, nested in a small alley (Domgasse) near the Domplatz. The vintage decor is particularly nice and transports you to an bygone era. Good service, traditional food with some modern touches, impressive wine selection. Prices are reasonable for the quality and overall experience. Highly recommended.

The Finsterwirt is a full restaurant, but at the time of day I visited, it was doing most of its business serving coffees and tasty pastries. It was a busy day, as a ceremony re the anniversary of the Republic of Italy had just finished - a good bit of the town came out for it, and as the ceremony... More
