Eat – Restaurant Finsterwirt

After all the mountain food I had the first two days of the South Tyrol trip I was now eating in town at restaurant Finsterwirt. This restaurant was located in a several centuries-old inn in the city centre. On entering the restaurant I noticed the unique ambiance in the antique wood-paneled Stube rooms. I also liked the open glass kitchen where you could see the chefs at work.

It was a balmy night and my food was served at a balcony overlooking the cosy inner courtyard terrace. Luckily it was covered as it was poring down with rain later in the evening. The food here was very much South Tyrolean mixed with Italian. I had speck as a starter and goat cheese ravioli with dumplings as the second dish. The main course was deer and the dessert was mixed cakes which of course had to have the strudel, this one was made of apricots. The execution of the food was brilliant and the portions where perfect not to feel bloated at the end of the dinner. This was a popular restaurant in the summer so make sure you reserve.
