The Restaurant of Pralongià Alpine Hut in Alta Badia

For all lovers of mountains and good food

Aperitif, lunch or an afternoon tea with a delicious cake – it's always worth taking some time to arrive at the expanses of Pralongià. And not only because this part of Alta Badia features breath-taking views and makes part of such spectacular routes, as Sellaronda... Another attraction is the cuisine of the Alpine Hut Pralongià, appreciated for the quality of ingredients and for the skilful cooking mastery. The combination of Ladin gastronomic traditions and Mediterranean recipes is balanced by the careful choice of local products. Meat, speck, cheeses, milk come exclusively from South Tyrolean farms, while game is sometimes provided by the owners themselves, who are fond of hunting in their free time. Even guests with special dietary requirements won't leave hungry, thanks to the competence and creativity of the cooking team, able to offer, upon request, tasty vegetarian solutions as well as gluten-free and lactose-free dishes.

All these delicacies are accompanied by a splendid 360-degree panorama, available both in the rustic main restaurant decorated with pieces of handicraft and in the graceful Zirmstube, entirely built with stone pine wood. In case of good weather, the ample outdoor terrace welcomes guests with lots of sun, boundless views and sometimes even with live music.

It’s lunchtime in the Dolomites

The restaurant of Pralongià Alpine Hut in Alta Badia is open for lunch every day during both summer and winter seasons and aims at the diversity of tastes. Simple and hearty recipes deriving from peasant and mountain traditions are combined here with lighter and more sophisticated proposals and even with gourmet dishes, created every year by Michelin-starred chefs for the projects "Peaks of Gastronomy" and "A Taste for Skiing". Equally rich is the wine list, containing the best wine labels of South Tyrol but also able to surprise with wonderful wines coming from other Italian regions and from abroad. Don't miss the opportunity to discover and taste them, for example, at the appropriate gastronomic events like "Sommelier on the slopes" and "Wine Skisafari".

Reserved for the guests of rooms and dorms

The guests of the rooms and dorms of the Alpine Hut Pralongià in Alta Badia can enjoy half board treatment in the graceful Zirmstube, a picturesque dining room where the key element is stone pine wood, famous for its aesthetic values and health benefits. Facing east and overlooking the Fanes Group, it's a great place to watch the sun rising behind the peaks of Conturines, Lavarella and Sasso di Santa Croce, but also to contemplate at dinnertime the magic performance of Enrosadira.

The buffet breakfast is rich and authentic, with home-made cakes and South Tyrolean cold cuts, cheeses and dairy products – an excellent energy charge to set off for mountain adventures. While in the evening, surrounded by the changing colours of nature, you can savour a 4-course menu, enriched with a buffet of salads and vegetables. Besides you can weekly enjoy Ladin dinners and welcome aperitifs in winter. Special care is given to guests with food allergies and intolerances. The rich wine list ensures ideal pairings for each dish. So another clinking of glasses bids adieu to the marvellous sunset, then spreads surreal silence and thousands of stars light up the night sky...
