Off Season Dining in Alta Badia

This blog post has been updated and improved here:  Dining Recommendations for Alta Badia in the Dolomites, South Tyrol (2018). Please go there for more information.

We write “off-season” because the summer high season hadn’t started yet so there is not that many places that are open. That said, you will definitely not starve. Some places we tried are listed below. We usually had sandwiches for lunch since we were hiking and ate dinner at the restaurants below. For details of the hikes, see the post Alta Badia – Eight Hikes in the Dolomites.

Mesoles Located close to our hotel at Str. Rönn 5, we ate at Mesoles for five different dinners. We got to know the owner, Hilda Alfreider, well and we often chatted until late in the evening. It’s a relaxed place that carries all the typical dishes of the region, especially “tutres”. Mesoles is located just outside of the downtown part of Colfosco as you are heading toward the Passo Gardena. There are several rooms that can be rented at Mesoles.

Il CianoIl Ciano is located in La Villa at Strada Boscdaplan 25. It has a wide selection of pizzas as well as pasta and seafood dishes. We were a little sceptical at first about the fish, but were assured that the seafood comes in fresh every day. So we tried pasta scoglia (with seafood) and pasta con vongole (with clams) and were not disappointed.

Maso Runch - Hof – Runch - Hof is in Pedraces and is a special dining treat. See this post for more details.

FornelloIl Fornello is located in Corvara. It’s a casual place to grab a pizza.

Peter’s Stube – Peter’s Stube is located in Colfosco on Str. Col Pradat 4 and has typical dishes of the region.

Albergo DasserDasser is located in San Martino in Badia. We ate at Dasser for lunch one day after visiting the nearby Ladin Museum.
