Rosa Alpina‘s St. Hubertus Restaurant, located in the charming town of San Cassiano, in the heart of the Italian Dolomites, has been included in The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2022, sponsored by San Pellegrino & Acqua Panna, ranking at number 29.
St. Hubertus is one of only 11 Italian restaurants in Italy awarded with three Michelin Stars and was one of the first restaurants in the world to have been given a Green Michelin Star.
The 2022 ranking was revealed yesterday in London with an event at the legendary Old Billingsgate, based in the Victorian building that was originally Billingsgate Fish Market, the world’s largest fish market in the 19th century. The event was attended by Rosa Alpina’s owners, Hugo and Ursula Pizzinini, along with Executive Chef Norbert Niederkofler and Lukas Gerges, Maître & Head Sommelier at St. Hubertus.
Rosa Alpina, an Aman-partner hotel, opened St. Hubertus in 1996 with just two tables dedicated to gourmet cuisine. Over the last 20 years, Chef Norbert has been leading a ‘foodie revolution’, offering ethically sourced and seasonal dishes with a zero-waste kitchen and menus inspired by the mountains, encouraging chefs around the world to run more sustainable kitchens. He is credited with bringing together international chefs with his ‘Cook the Mountain’ philosophy, which includes cooperation, sustainability, seasonality, use of locally sourced produce and periodical events called Care’s, which focus on debating the future of ethical cooking.
As of today, over 20 former members of Norbert’s St. Hubertus brigade have run their own Michelin Starred restaurants around the world.
Dinner at St. Hubertus starts from approx. £271 (€320) per person for the Cook The Mountain Tasting Menu, excluding wine pairings.
