This restaurant is so typically Ticino that it almost hurts! The food is excellent, the atmosphere exciting and friendly. What a wonderful place. We were a bit unlucky with the service, but it was a Friday evening and the place was full, close to bursting....More

Old-fashioned and cozy this restaurant is really a hidden gem for me as non local. Found it once and you will never forget. The best tartar with white truffles I ever eat and other dishes also are excellent.

Nice grotto, food is quite good. My wife had a very tender entrecote. I had some tasty ravioli. I would have given this grotto 5 stars if it weren't for the waiters being unsmiling and not particularly friendly.

We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. We were a party of six and were seated in the wine cellar. Absolutely stunning. The restaurant was mostly filled with locals and the menus were only...More
