This time, I had the opportunity to try the various menus available here. Starting from the a la carte menu, business lunch package and lunch party menu.

1. Business Lunch Package 
For this package, customer can get 1 set lunch with 3 courses in several choices, starting from Antipasti (Appetizer), Primi Piatti (Main Course) and Dolce (Dessert). For this menu can be ordered from 1 to 10 pax.

2. Lunch Party Menu
For groups of more than 10 pax, recommended to choose this package. Where customers can get 1 lunch set with 5 courses menu. Starting from Antipasti (Insalata Di Bormio), Soup (Zuppa al Funghi Porcini), Pasta (Linguini Aglio Olio Al Frutti Di Mare), Pesce (Salmone al Pepe Rosa) and Dolce (Panna Cotta).
In terms of value, Business Lunch and Lunch Party Menu I think best suited to be an option. Especially want to enjoy several types of food at once. But if you want dinner or eat a la carte, there are some menu options that i think splendid to try.

1. Antipasti
There are 2 Appetizers to start. The first is Insalata in Bormio. Traditional salads from Northern Italy are served with apple, pine nuts, walnuts, black olives and cipolini. It taste very fresh, perfect as a starter and increase appetite, this menu is also a Vegetarian menu. Another option, Affettati Misti, Cold Cut platter of soprasatta, salami, pancetta and mortadella ham. This starter with a more savory taste and also contains pork taste really good.
2. Pizza & Pasta
Bismark Pizza, a classic Italian pizza with Crispy Pork Bacon & Soft Half-Cooked Egg. It's tasty, with a crunchy pizza edge and a sweet delicious aroma. Favorite pasta choices fall to Linguini Al Nero In Seppia, pasta linguini with squid ink sauce and chopped squid. It is al dente paste coupled with the right squid cooked, is a perfect combination.

3. Main Course
Again my choice on the menu with pork, Braciola Di Maiale. The Iberico pork chop is marinated with mustard and served with an arugula salad and baby potato. The level of doneness that fits with the texture of pork is still very tender and taste delicious. Halal menu choice is Tagliata Di Manzo, wagyu steak cooked with medium rare level yields a very juicy and melted meat texture in the mouth.

4. Dessert
Panna Cotta, a must-try dessert. Her amazingly beautiful presentation makes it a precious to eat. The texture of Vanilla cream & Milk curd moist with a sweet taste that fits, served with a sweet and sour raspberry sauce. Overall, the experience of dining here is very satisfying. Starting from a very nice and comfortable place, the food is a beautiful presentation and good taste, the attention and good service will certainly be part of this restaurant.
