Dinner at Crotto Ombra was very tasty. Our dinner selection: House cured Bresaola (cured beef), thinly sliced, served with breads and crostini sticks, followed by the main course of grilled pork ribs and vegetables and a selection of local cheeses rounded off a very delicious...More

Its a little big so it doesnt get 5 stars as I like a little more interaction with the staff, the food was all good snd the staff were efficient and friendly. Particular note to the costata which was very tasty.

Food was okay but waitress was so rude. We have been in Italy for 2 months and eaten out just about every day for either lunch or dinner and this was the worst waitress we have come across. We couldn't wait to leave

We enjoyed lunch at this place on hot day comfortably cool right under the ledge. Nice variety of local food at reasonable prices.

Rude waitress with other staff acting in a similar manner. Crotto Ombra. Ghastly place. Don't bother with it. My friend and I had read about this restaurant on Tripadvisor and wanted to try it. We turned up on a Sunday evening at around 8.30pm. My...More

The most delicious gnocchi I have ever eat, hand made!! The cheese over fabulous! In the summer, you stay in the garden in shade of the big rocket outside. When you travel to or from Switzerland over the Spluga pass, it is a real event.
