Every time we dine in this restaurant we discover new flavors and combinations. The creativity of the chef and his crew seams limitless. Very good and friendly service. Do not miss the local venison and the fermented pre dessert!

The service was also fantastic with the servers knowing a lot of information about the dishes being presented to us, were very helpful and also always... More

It's always a bad start when the restaurant has lost your booking, but the way they handle it can make even more difference. "Are you kidding " isn't right. Well, we got our table and a huge number of nice amusees were served . It would have been nice to have a glass of good wine with them, but we... More

Make no misstake about the ranking with trip advisor, this is the best restaurant in town with concern to fine dining. The restaurant is pleasant and cosy and the service in impeccable. I can understand that fine dining in the shape of a surprise dinner is not for everyone, especially on a skiing vacation but we loved it. Stefano has... More

This is the one of the best restaurant ever. Great food, great atmosphere and a incredible service. Very good wine list. We enjoyed the 7 courses surprise tasting menu. An amazing tour in the valley of Chiavenna.

Wonderful food which had a remarkable depth of flavour. Four courses plus coffee were the norm, plus two small courses served as a "present" from the kitchen. Atmosphere varied from being very quiet to much louder. If you've got younger children, it might be advisable to skip a couple of courses as it can turn into a very long evening,... More

Recently, I had the pleasure of a unique experience while visiting Madesimo, Italy.. a cooking class with a Michelin-star chef Stefano Masanti and then dining at his restaurant, Il Cantinone. The food was incredible, the service impeccable and the wine pairings by Raffaella, a professional sommelier made for an incredible evening as our last night in Italy! Thank you!
