While staying in Cortina, we wanted a better meal better than found at most trattorias in down town. We had a very nice evening meal at this restaurant, with a few EXCELLENT dishes, a lot of AVERAGE dishes, along with attentive staff. Especially good were the Beet ravioli and some of the Venison dishes. I highly recommend getting a variety... More

We were a group of 8 so we when we arrived in for dinner on a quiet evening the locals dining downstairs were quite happy when we were escorted up to a private room upstairs. Our waitress, Georgia, made valuable wine recommendations. It turns out she was a member of the Italian National Curling Team that twice almost made it... More

A very nice place with friendly staff and quick service. The food was very average though including parmigiana, pasta and ravioli. The meat was probably the best part.

We concur with all of the positive reviews. In September, 2014 we enjoyed another terrific meal and our best bottle of wine during our 8 day stay in Cortina. The wine pairing was perfect, done by our delightful server Georgia. She also told of a two hour walk to an incredible lake (white/blue water). We will always return when we... More

I recently dined here with 2 friends and I must say I was extremely impressed! The setting is really beautiful and the layout and design of the restaurant doesn't disappoint! I love the way the restaurant is laid out in lots of small sections as it makes for a fantastic, cosy atmosphere. The house Prosecco was beautiful. The food was... More

This is our favourite place for dinner in the winter or lunch in the summer in Cortina. The food is delicious, but for Italy that isn't always so difficult. What tips this for us is the lakeside location and the amazing wines we drink always on her recommendation. Book now!

This is the 2nd time we dined at this gorgeous little restaurant set on a small lake, hidden away in the forests and close to Cortina. Near to the town but you feel miles away. The service is wonderful with the ladies dressed in traditional costume, the mountain food delicious. We sat outside as the weather was good but inside... More

There are lots of good restaurants in Cortina to choose from but one of my favourites for a special night out or lunch is Lago Pianozes. I have been taking hiking groups for our farewell dinners there for many years and Fabrizio is always the charming host. The restaurant has a wonderful setting by its very own lake with spectacular... More
