Great venue at top of chair lift. Lots of seating inside and out and service was quick. We only stopped for drinks but could have stayed longer as the views are fantastic and I particularly liked the 'owl tree'. There's even a wooden carved lady statue downstairs by the WCs! Clearly a well established busy hot spot.

Tired after a morning skiing between Corvara and Arraba, check out this mountain restaurant. You will not be disappointed . Check out the spare ribs and Nebraska steak, grilled to perfection. Best to make a reservation, this place is very popular and trendy because of the quality and atmosphere. A must in Sella Ronda

fortunately they take resrevations at Punta Trieste, otherwise I would not have had lunch there. This place gets so busy!!! but the food and atmoshere are so good that people are prepared to wait for a table. Great dishes are spare ribs (served with chips) and Sinco di Maiale. This is an Alta Badia specialty, which is a pig's leg... More

Owner Petra just keeps her fathers tradition. Very good quality food in a tradition of service for plenty of people at rhe same time. Rush but nice. A good stop for a day ski

This is the place to be after your long day on skis. It's great view over the Sella Group and the short distance swings back to Corvara makes its visit a happy end of the day! Cheers!

A great restaurant with good food. The staff are friendly but at busy times it can be chaotic. We booked a table for 12.30 an order was not taken for 20 minutes and when we finished our main course we waited another 20 minutes before we could order a coffee we were advised that the table was booked for the...

We came upon the Trieste by chance and were lucky to get a seat as it was full and this was at 1. 30 pm. Many had booked tables and probably advised to be sure of a table. There didn't seem to be menus inside but just outside on a board. The joint was jumping; music, frivolity and great ribs.... More

They've toned down the music, there are fewer patrons dancing in their ski boots now and the owls have not multiplied...but for quick, excellent food Punta Trieste is terrific. The lamb chops are outstanding...the ribs likewise and the tiramisu in the top 5 on the Sellaronda. Always worth the stop: watch for the signs on the way up the Pralongia... More

great atmosphere, great food, great staff. I wish I had a bigger party as the wine list was interesting and well priced, particularly on wines from the region.
