We dined twice at El Molin in our 9-day stay in Cavalese. Each night the food, wine and service were wonderful. Wait staff were very knowledgeable and pleasant. Atmosphere comfortable and warm. I highly recommend El Molin.

Dear guests, our restaurant is a gourmet restaurant which aims to offer a complete culinary tour. If you will come over again we will welcome you at the El Molin Wine Bar, exactly nearby, where the courses are more substantial. Thank you, Best regards.

This may look like an unlikely area to have excellent pizza, but in fact they take very good care of their ingredients and their dough preparation (70 hours of rising...). Their 'caserecce' range is a little more expensive than average but the quality is very...More

Long gone are the days when you could not eat a decent pizza north of Rome: and the pizza at Excelsior is really and truly excellent. I am not sure whether the 70 hours of leavening are all necessary and not at all gimmicky, the...More
