We went there because on the recommendation from the hotel. I would probably not visit a place like this otherwise. The food was quite strong: meat, cheese. And lots of it. I couldn’t eat the whole fondue meal. It was fun watching the locals.

This authentic place is focusing on what they know the best - the meat. Charcuterie, grilled meats, tartars and many more. Dishes were delicious and generous accompanied by a great variety of local wines. The staff is welcoming and professionel.

I was recommended this really unusual (decorwise and staffwise) restaurant by locals and I didn't get disappointed as food was pretty good and the atmosphere unique. Pricewise it was ok too.Very ugly location not far from tiny Aosta city centre,though

The food is really excellent and the staff is wonderful. Try the absinthe experience - it is really unique. The decor is quintessentially alpine. If you are thinking about a cozy mountain atmosphere, though, forget about it: the inside of the restaurant is wonderful, but...More
