It was the wine of Mamete Prevostini that brought us here. Before leaving for Italy we wanted to have a few winery tastings lined up, and because we were specifically traveling to the Valtellina Valley, we didn't want to miss visiting the Prevostini winery. When...More

Just great. A very rustic ambient (be sure to ask for the old "stua" when you book) with an elegant atmosphere. The food is delicious but avoid this place if you are on a diet! Try the meats and the magnificent "gnocchetti bianchi".
