Just take a look. Do not miss the last updating.
Hugo & Ursula Pizzinini
If you are in San Cassiano it takes just 30 minutes drive to reach this little town also called the “Pearl of the Dolomites”. The drive through lush woods and impressive mountains is already worth the excursion.
While in Cortina, the pedestrian road “Corso Italia” is where the city comes to live. A part from the branded shops there is a very interesting little bookshop called Libreria Sovilla where you may have a look after having had an espresso at the Bar Lovat, very close to the church. If it is “Aperitivo” time ask directions for the Enoteca Cortina, better known among locals as “Da Jerry”, have a glass of his favourite Riesling and after that drive up to the Baita Pié Tofana, a little family run restaurant with very tasty dishes.
Restaurant Schöneck – Falzes/Pfalzen
Charming family run restaurant in Pfalzen a little village above the city of Brunico. We both love this place and especially chef Karl’s fish dishes as he is a keen sailor. His wife, Mary, runs the service and Sigi his brother is in charge of the wines.
Locanda Margon - Trento
Just a few minutes drive off the highway, taking the exit „Trento Sud“ and driving towards „Ravina“ the signs of this exceptional restaurant appear just after the majestic building of the Ferrari Winery, owned by the Lunelli family, who also own this fantastic restaurant and the antique Villa Margon at a few minutes walk from the restaurant. The Chef Alfio Ghezzi takes his job very seriously and impresses already with his creative amuse bouches, may it be in the formal dining room or at the more casual veranda located in the gardens outside.
Make sure to visit the Villa Margon where part of the Italian history has been written and ask for a guide if available. www.locandamargon.it
Ursula’s Baby Walks… with the stroller
Both in summer and winter you can take your baby out for a walk with the stroller: the closest one to the hotel is the “Tru D’Artisc” across the river which takes you down to La Villa. If you take the cable car up to Piz Sorega in summer you can hike up to the Rifugio Bioch, a great place for food and a wonderful playground for kids… and there are more options for easy walks… the hotel provides strollers (for babies with more than 7 months).
Osteria al Castelletto
If you are in the Prosecco area (Valdobbiadene) it is a MUST to step by at the „Osteria al Castelletto” better known as “Da Clemi” for real local food. You will meet the soul of this little restaurant, Clemi, who will advise you on her daily menu. Look out for the other guests in the restaurant as you may meet famous Italian businessmen having their lunch.
