 +Guardian calls the "​gastronomic star of the Dolomites",​ a delightful old ski town that, in this mainly German-speaking corner of the Sudtirol, is Italian to its voluptuous core. The local specialities are macaroni, bean soup, and casunziei - ravioli filled with beetroot.
 +
 +* **Rifugio Averau** Perched on a limestone ledge in the Cinque Torri ski area, the Rifugio is reached by a rope-tow. On sunny days the terrace is packed with happy Italian skiers and snowboarders and a smattering of adventurous foreigners. When the weather closes in, diners huddle around wooden tables inside, where the panelled walls are decorated with ski memorabilia. Different types of homemade pasta such as pappardelle con funghi (butterfly pasta with mushrooms) are the speciality. Don't confine your choice to one - on request three are served on a single plate.

Owner-chef Graziano Prest cooks while his wife Maridilia runs the restaurant. Guests include visiting Italian film stars, politicians and bankers. Try warm guineafowl salad with nuts and smoked bacon, or jugged pork in mustard sauce and served with radicchio.
