You eat so much (and well) that you won't forget it. Typical Grotto experience in Canton Ticino. Always very full therefore there is some problems with the parking of your car. I suggest to carpooling if your organize a group dinner or lunch!

We ate polenta with moshrums an puntine di maiale
Those are very good. The problem is the grill because is nearly to the tables.

So typical from the region! Absolutely loved it! And not expensive for what we ate! Book in advance as they are victim of their success!!

If you want to get the Ticino grotto experience this is the place to go. Going here for the long Sunday lunch is a must.
The pork ribs are worth the trip alone, but when you add in the meat and cheese starters, merlot, polenta and chips you get and amazing meal.
The staff is friendly as well and helps round out the whole experience.

The pork ribs are dry-rubbed and succulent and definitely worth the short drive from Lugano central. The accompanying chips and polenta were also great additions. Everything we ordered was gluten free - I mean, it's bbq after-all. Couldn't help ourselves and had to order some dessert too (really rich, decadent chocolate mousse) which was really tasty and the perfect end to a fantastic meal.
