Eat (and Sing) Like an Italian AlpsmanAt "The Lair of the Wolf" you can eat and sing like an authentic old Italian living in the Alps.
When you walk into La Tana del Lupo, you quite literally feel as if you are entering into an old cabin high in the Italian mountains. The doors are made out of wood with carvings and giant wolves with their mouths open for the handles.
When you sit down to order, you can order just one course, but if you're feeling extra hungry and want to empty those pockets, order the Wolf's Menu, an 18-course traditional meal from the Italian Alps, which includes unlimited red wine (which you can fill yourself from the barrel), and desserts and a shot of Grappa from a boot at the end! Helpful tip: if you're going to be eating 18 courses, take the shot! It's good for digestion.
Every night at 9 p.m. (21:00 military time) there is a live accordionist, but don't feel left out because you, too, receive a book with the lyrics to the traditional Italian songs. Don't be shy! Even the lyric book commands you to sing with its giant man on the cover.
While you're waiting for your meal, donning the most fashionable apron that you are provided, don't forget to check out the walls around you which are adorned with pots and pans and cowbells of all various shapes and sizes. Oh, and be sure to make friends with the adorable owner, he loves hugs!
