Owner speaks only a little English but can speak German. We were offered an eggplant (aubergine) starter (9.50 Fr) which was very tasty. Other specials that weren't on the menu were explained to us in German (menu is only in Italian). We had the three types of ravioli (mushroom, pumpkin and artichoke) with butter - very tasty. The other special... More

Amazing pasta, artichokes salads and very good local wine called "Americano'. The service continues to be perfect as usual. Charming place, charming hosts!

Typically Master Salvatore and his wife welcome you at this amazing typical grotto with a fresh dish of melanzane with tomatoes rucola and cheese. A specially made pappardelle with game meat was really amazing and confirming over and over again how this humble, warm and friendly place is able to dish out amazing top culinary delights. We just can't keep... More

Good and smiling atmosphere, outdoor seating under the trees and with stone tables give a traditional feeling. Service comes with a smile. Food is prepared with care. VERY expensive, even for Swiss standards. This place is a poshy restaurant, not a Grotto...

We go to this restaurant regularly and, each time, are made so happy by the welcome we receive. We normally go with the rest of the family, including grandchildren, and nothing seems to upset the two people who run the restaurant. The menu is always interesting and there are always special, seasonal dishes on offer - not only by word,... More

The place is run by an amazing couple passionate about their food with great service. Parmigiana di Melanzana is a must while you wait for the favorite pasta or meat. Fresh ingredient and cucina di casa, this place makes you feel at home. The local wine, ' Nostrano' is the star of the wines there. We have been going there... More
