Italian cuisine meets mountain flavors

Warm-hued woods, soft gray leather and sparkling light raining down from dozens of contemporary-chic chandeliers. The atmosphere of Cortina deftly encapsulates a dining experience at Montage Big Sky’s signature restaurant: laid-back elegance.

This kind of refined-meets-relaxed dining is not only felt in the air, but also tasted in the cuisine — it’s a brilliant blend of elevated Italian classics made with Rocky Mountain ingredients. 

The frequently changing menu honors the region it calls home by elevating fresh Big Sky produce and game with handmade pasta and traditionally crafted sauces, creating dishes that are at once comforting and sophisticated. Whether stopping in for a glass of wine or a multi-course meal, a dining experience at Cortina is a moment to savor.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Cortina’s warm and welcoming design was inspired by both the traditional feel of an alpine lodge and the elegance of a rustic Italian country estate. The result is a blend of both worlds.
  • The Big Sky restaurant sources as much of its produce, meat, game and fish from local producers as possible, ensuring true mountain flavor in every bite.
  • Come for the food, stay for the views. Cortina’s large windows provide a picture-perfect view of alpine sunsets every evening.
  • In addition to its elegant dinner service, Cortina offers a bountiful breakfast buffet designed to fuel you for a day in the mountains. Fill up on steel-cut oatmeal, artisan pastries, fresh fruit and other morning staples.
  • Be sure to try one of the made-by-hand pastas, like the mezzaluna or pappardelle.

The Food

  • Start your meal with a selection of flavorful small bites, such as citrus-marinated olives or whipped ricotta with locally sourced honey.
  • Vegetarians will find an appetizing selection of plates on the small yet varied menu. Try hearty blistered cherry tomato pappardelle or a flavorful array of hearth-roasted seasonal vegetables.
  • Wood-fired steaks are cooked to perfection and topped with your choice of unique sauces, including foraged wild mushroom sauce or star anise reduction.
