The typical South Tyrolean is known as a welcoming but somewhat suspicious breed who tries to maintain his German identity. As regards cookery, however, he has fortunately failed to resist the Italian influence – hardly surprising given the fabulous ideas that Italian cuisine has to offer.
South Tyrol today can offer something to delight every gourmet’s palate: from typical Knödel (dumplings) and Schlutzkrapfen (stuffed pasta pockets) to polenta and sweet treats such as tiramisù or our local fritters.
In our restaurant in Bolzano and surroundings the aim is to rediscover local and traditional dishes, reworking and adapting them to contemporary tastes, while adding elements of Italian and international cuisine. The results of our efforts can not only be seen, but also relished with a glass of wine from our cellar in the ambience of our Restaurant Zum Löwen near Bolzano in Meltina.
What’s on offer at the Restaurant Zum Löwen in Bolzano and surroundings:
- Hearty breakfast buffet with Bio-corner and numerous homemade products such as bread and preserves
- Fresh salad buffet
- Gourmet evening meal with menu of choice
Various themed evenings, e.g.:
“miner’s fare”: a hearty cold buffet
“o sole mio”: an unforgettable Italian evening
“al dente”: various pasta dishes from the buffet
Or perhaps you would prefer a barbecue in the garden?
On request we can also host your event, from an aperitif in the village square to wine-tasting with our sommelier – your wish is our command.
Please highlight any special needs or dietary requirements (intolerances, diet regime, etc.) upon booking to allows us to prepare as soon as possible.
