Are you looking for the best restaurants in Villnöss? Here you can find our gastronomic tips.
Our Residence Hotel does not have its own restaurant. However, Villnöss is one of the culinary highlights of South Tyrol – you will find tempting culinary offers in the region.

Our good gastronomy from Villnöss
There are also a number of recommended restaurants in St. Peter, St. Magdalena, Teis and the Zanser Alm region. Here you can find an overview. Especially on the alpine pastures, you can taste regional delicacies, especially the cuisine around the Eisack valley. The ingredients come mostly from our own production, while recipes have a long family tradition. To name just a few of the classics: Greaschtl – cooked potatoes cooked with onions and beef and spices in the pan. Schlutzer – alternatively stuffed and cooked dumplings with spinach or passed potatoes. Schöpsans – roast of young sheep. Schworzplentina Knedl – Buckwheat flour dumplings. Selchkaree – smoked and cured pork rib. This is, of course, only a small selection. There are guests, whose mouth is watering only by hearing the ancient dialect names of these dishes! But try it by yourself!
Only the best quality meat
The gastronomy of our region is traditionally very hearty, solid and firmly rooted in the country and its animal husbandry. In a good restaurant in Villnöss you will find the spectacle sheep in the menu. The grazer with the dark-edged eyes is known as a delicacy not only among our mountain farmers and is experiencing a culinary renaissance. The beef on your plate, however, often comes from the gray Geisler rind. It receives its special quality by the fact that the animals feed solely on the succulent grass and the spicy herbs of the pastures of Villnöss. As officially established, this can be actually eaten only by gray cows. You will taste the difference immediately.
When the snack station becomes a gourmet snack
Perhaps will you spend a holiday during one of our culinary events? About Törggelen you have certainly heard. This autumnal custom around chestnut (keschtn), bacon, sausage and wine is typical for the Eisack valley and is always a welcome occasion to indulge in the pleasures of our good cuisine in company and music. In the farm taverns, inns and almost every snack station you are richly cared during the period of the wine harvest. Also the “Villnösser lamb weeks” take place in autumn, and then in October our popular “South Tyrolean Speck festival“. Every self-respecting restaurant in Villnöss takes part in such festivities or in its own way joins the delicious hustle and bustle.
Get ready for a culinary journey through the Villnöss/Funes Valley, where you can discover a delicious blend of traditional and modern cuisine. Perhaps you’d care to acquaint yourself with the local autumn tradition of “Törggelen” — when guests stop by to sample the hearty snacks and rustic refreshments offered by informal pubs and country inns.
