Our objectives are well-being, sustainability and a multi-sensorial cuisine: every dish is prepared with healthy and genuine ingredients that delight the senses of smell and taste as well-being pleasing to the eye. In line with the trend to eat lightly and consequently to consume more vegetables with the buffet we try to serve lots of vegetables prepared in various ways. Our menus are inspired by Italian cuisine with an emphasis on rediscovering traditional local dishes.
We purchase our ingredients as much as possible from local producers and farmers in the area and then use our common to sense to buy produce that is grown and produced as close as possible with an “intelligent” view of where things come from.
Excellent food is produced in the mountains: milk, butter, cheese, meat, mushrooms and salami, but there are specialities that Italy is famous for that must inevitably be bought elsewhere such as Parmigiano-Reggiano, Parma Ham, Angus beef, Barolo or Brunello wines, Pachino tomatoes, onions from Tropea and fresh fish to name just a few.
In short even in this field we avoid being too extreme and use our common sense.
Unlike almost all other hotels you can visit the kitchen at any time; chefs (just like the rest of us…) like to receive compliments for a job well-done; gratification is important!
Here at the Ciarnadoi Hotel we have always served gluten-free dishes in our restaurant and more: dishes for lactose intolerance, vegetarian dishes and dishes for every particular type of diet. The gluten-free cuisine at the Ciarnadoi includes a variety of delicious dishes that are not so different to those with gluten. We are happy to welcome all people with special dietary needs.
For those that do not eat meat or fish there is always at least one vegetarian dish on the menu every day. Without forgetting cheese, different kinds of vegetables, salads and other appetisers on the buffet…
The Wine Cellar
Did you know that the higher you go the better the wine tastes? Maybe this is the reason that a symposium on wine is held in the middle of October in Sass Pordoi to which all the best wineries in the area are invited. It is possible to take part in wine tastings by taking the shuttle to Passo Pordoi and then the cable car to Sass Pordoi (you can even go on foot: on the way down however we strongly recommend you take the cable car…)
Wine is kept in bottles, one of the few things that can be enjoyed far from where it is produced.
In our Restaurant, one of the best in the Dolomites, the wine list you can choose from to select the most suitable one to accompany your meal is extremely interesting. It includes labels from all over Italy but mainly focuses on those from Trentino- South Tyrol: red, white, rosé and spumante that can easily rival more famous Italian or French alternatives. To ensure that the wines can be enjoyed to accompany different dishes it is possible to order just a glass instead of the whole bottle for some labels.
