Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Pila, places to eat on the mountain

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi, we're planning to do a coupe of days in Pila later this year, I've skied there for 1 day previously, nearly 20 years ago. I'd welcome any recommendationss for food and coffee ( plus a cake of course) breaks, preferably up the mountain rather than back at base, we will have our 14yr old with us, so good pizza, pasta and local dishes work for us, happy with self service if it's good food. Thanks

@geoffknight, lots of nice places to eat and cheap. Around the Pila village there’s dozens the only one I’ve eaten in is the one near the bottom of the Chamole chair which was ok. At the top of the chair is a very nice cosy place to eat and if it’s sunny, sun bathe. Near the bottom of the nouva chair is the huge and busy Hermitage, it’s self service, cheap and decent food.

"Masion Jean"(?) is a good option for both Pizza and Cake. I like the place at the bottom of the Grimod for it's coffee while 'Societe' off Nouva is also a fave. Oh, the place on the side of the Nouva is good too.

@geoffknight, the Montanara pizzeria has a wood-fired oven and does (well, it did a few years back) brilliant pizza. It's at the very top of the resort, attached to Plan Bois hotel - veer left off pistes 14/15, a couple of hundred yards above the cable car base station.

Thanks for the replies, will,try and sample all of them, love a wood fired pizza oven so Montanara sounds particularly good.

Just come back from our trip there.
Never do Pizza for lunch personally but the La Piazzetta, just off the village run is brilliant pizza.
Also Maision de Jean and Trattoria Dei Maestri - on the flat bit in village are very good and have Pizza.

Evening best Pizza is either above or as mentioned Plan Bois (long walk) or Grimod (by the ice rink in centre of old village)

Societe brilliant food - tricky to find as it is tucked away off run 6. The back is off the natural half pipe valley or carry on down 7 and then take a sharp right to get to the front. Best sun bathing spot. Not to mention €3 for a Prosecco which comes with a plate very interesting nibbles - you have to try it.

Chateleine (off 5) is great for huge sarnis and soup - if you can't fill them here there is something wrong.

Toasted sarnies and huge salads at Della Nouva - bottom of Baby Goraza carpet lift. Next door to La Piazzetta.

Yeti (opposite Gondola station from Aosta) brilliant food and no kids in there now as they have stopped doing Interski at lunch.

Its Italy no where is bad and all reasonable - Other Maison de Jean & Trattoria Dei Maestri which are expensive. Interesting Maison de Jean is under new management and open in the evenings now.

Have fun
