Reviews / Restaurant

The Italian ski town of San Martino di Castrozza is not short of restaurants, but La Vecchia Fornace is one of the best known.

Housed inside an old furnace, which gives the restaurant its name, La Fornace, as it’s known to locals, serves crowd-pleasing pizza, pasta and bar snacks, like chicken wings and jalapeno poppers. The food is tasty, if unspectacular, but it’s the atmosphere that will make you want to come back night after night.

There is something about the place that seems to make people want to have a good time, and invariably they do. There are big tables for larger parties, and it’s a popular spot with young workers from the hotels in town. After dinner the large open space by the bar becomes a dance floor, and it is soon filled by dancing locals.

The beer and wine is cheap, another reason to explain why so much of it is drunk here, and the staff does a good job welcoming people to dance without being too pushy. If you are looking for a fun meal and a few drinks afterwards, look no further than Fornace.

Pizzas are around $11 and a large beer will set you back $5.
