Livigno has a tempting choice of more than fifty restaurants in addition to the dozens of bars that offer snacks as well as drinks. This is great news for skiers, who have legendary appetites after a day on the slopes.
When choosing a restaurant, the service is as important as the cooking and here Livigno scores very higly. Many of the restaurants are family owned,and have been so for generations,and you will receive a warm welcome and enjoy excellent service.
So, where to dine? For a start, you can’t go wrong with a pizza anywhere in Italy, and Livigno is no exception. Among our favourites are the Mirage, in the pedestrian zone as well as Bellavista and Mario’s on the road to San Rocco. Both of these can be walked to from the central area of Livigno.
If you ae the kind of person who likes to try regional cuisine – and Livigno has some very tasty mountain dishes – most of the restaurants will serve up their own local specialities. Rhaps the best known of these is pizzocheri – buckwheat pasta ribbons with potatoes, cabbage, garlic, butter and local cheese (one plate is never enough). Among the best restaurants where you would find such delicacies are the Camana Veglia, Paprika and Mario’s.
For fresh fish and seafood (delivered each day from Milan) try Da Dino or if you need a fix of sushi, head for the Ristorante Larice.
