Ristorante La Tor in La Villa is a good restaurant with a cosy bar – just what we wanted after a tiring day out walking in the Dolomites. The restaurant is part of the Dolomit B&B, a friendly rustic bed & breakfast that I highly recommend staying in especially if you don’t feel like coughing up cash for the nearby 5-star hotels. La Villa is a town in Alta Badia, which is west of Cortina, the area’s best known town. It’s a convenient location for visiting nearby sites such as Cinque Torri and Rifugio Lagazuoi as well as Passo Giau. We stayed here for two nights in early October when many of the region’s other hotels were shut for the season. Besides the convenience, the food here was great value. Both our dinner and our breakfasts were remarkably generous – not just in portion size but also in the freshness and quality of the ingredients. In addition, the hosts were very helpful and great with suggestions on where to go on a rainy day. I booked through booking.com for my room. As for the restaurant, I didn’t need to make bookings as it was offseason but I imagine things can get pretty busy during skiing season or the height of the summer holidays. But it’s easy enough to make reservations on La Tor’s website.
