During the Christmas week, my wife and I will be staying in Selva (Val di Gardena), which is between Bolzano and Cortina d'Ampezzo. I asked several weeks ago for restaurant recommendations in that area, but got no responses. I have reviewed the usual sources -Gambero Rosso, Plotkin, Willinger, etc. - but would be interested in hearing about real experiences. There seem to be a few good options in Bolzano and Corvara.
In the week after Christmas, we will be making our way to Milan by car, planning to stop in Venice and other places along the way. I have noted several promising recommendations on the board, but was curious if there are any other recent discoveries in or around Verona, Mantova, Padova, etc.
Many thanks in advance. I promise to report back.
