Talking about restaurant, it's not only the higher I went to (10.000 feet), it's also provided with an excellent cooking, a very pleasant service, and reasoneable prices. The very arrival is an emotion, with the steepest cable car without pillars, and, once you get up...above, the surrounding peaks and mountains are monumental. Even though you are not a skiier, you can easely reach the restaurant parking your car at the cable car departing station, at the top of passo sella.More

Great location at the top of the Sass Pordoi cable-car. wonderful views and great food. we liked the excellent saladbar. Note you can leave your skis in lockers at the cable-car lower station. Note skiing down the sass pordoi is no longer recommended.

Good place to warm up with a Winter Lemon drink and an apple strudel ( 7euro ). They do provide full meals and snacks at reasonable prices. Plenty of free parking. Has a small gift shop. Overall average

With friendly staff, the foods were more delicious. The rib was top menu for my group. With the hot chocolate, everything was perfect with fog and snow.

The food is very good and enough, the pricing is fair and the stuff is friendly. Good choice for a rest!

Had lunch here on the recommendation of our tour guide. It was very much ship them in and ship them out - waiters were very curt, just wanted us to order, eat and pay. Having said that the food was nice - we had goulash...soup and spaghetti carbonara, mind you the portion size of the pasta was huge! Just felt we were another bunch of tourists that they had to deal with, when most restaurants in Italy make you feel like the most important people on earth.More

Very busy, much to busy for the few staff they had. Two of us ordered a main meal each plus 2 beers. One meal came and despite repeated attempts at getting the other meal served it took another 15 minutes. The beer never arrived, having...asked the waiter many times if we could have our drinks. No bread was served as you would expect in a restaurant in Italy, some tables got some bread, most like us didn't.More

Came to have a drink during the visit to Passo Podoi. Took glue wine, it was a bit more expemcie than usual but nice and the view and the service nice as well.

No one coming here could do less than rave about the views, but last year the food was completely forgettable. It seems now that they have gotten themselves a chef and the results are quite satisfactory. You may not come here specifically to eat but...now if you do you have no reason to be disappointed, if you like the food of this general area, that is...More
