You want to stop as soon as you see this nice typical building. Food is fantastic. Local pizzoccheri and Bitto Storico cheese together with bresaola. The best is the host. Advising and entertaining with local food history and jokes. Worth the trip.

The noble farmhouse, with its stables and its courts, has been gradually restored and transformed into a welcoming and characteristic environment with the charm of the nineteenth-century. The restaurant La Brace was recognized "Historical Activity" by the Lombardy Region and has received the certification of social responsibility by the local Chamber of Commerce. Traditional cuisine Everything is natural and made as once: our pastry chef bakes bread and sweets every morning. All the pastas served are homemade with high quality raw materials.. The comeback to the origin and the respect of original Valtellina recipes characterize the menus, full of imagination, in an expert interaction between tradition and excellent local products. The grilled meat, that must be tasted, is one of our most wanted specialty. In the menu, you will also find the best selections of the famous cheese Storico Ribelle, protected by Slow Food. The Halls They are in tune with the rest of the structure, with its fireplaces and stone walls, decorated with wooden tables and old tools of the peasants. Ideal for lunches and dinners. The distinctive trait of the 6 private halls (even for only two people) is the ideal setting to celebrate a special event. The banquet halls are very ample and bright and can be used to organize different types of party up to 400 people. Reserved dining rooms Unique places and great atmosphere can be booked for couples, friends, family reunions or business lunch/dinner.
