We were taken to this restaurant by an Italian friend who lives in the area. It's his favourite place to eat and we were very impressed with the whole experience. The food was quite adventurous for Italian country cooking. They obviously use quality local ingredients to create some exciting dishes. The restaurant itself is very attractive, like a mountain restaurant... More

One of the best authentic Italian restaurants in the area. Superb, friendly service from Manager Lelo and head waiter Ugo. Nothing is too much trouble. The food is fantastic. Try their excellent fillet steaks, one of the best I have eaten in ages and the tagliolini with mushrooms is to die for. The mixed meat starter is enormous, plenty for... More

We had delicious dinner there. You have to book a table in advance! Kids loved pizza. In main course there is a dish for 2 persons - mixed grilled meat with potatoes and vegetables. It was so huge that it was enough for 3 persons and still we did not eat everything :) But, to get there from Castiglion D´intelvi... More

Great restaurant with very friendly staff! We were about 20 minutes to early before they even opened for dinner – but we could have a seat on their terrace, already sipping some nice wine with a view and would even get some local Salami to try without having asked. They serve great pizza but also meat is delicious (I had... More

Haha there are only 3 Restaurants in Blessagno - so it is not so difficult being nr 1. But the Pizza I had and also the hand made Ravioli or Pizzocel were just perfect and fantastico. Also the assistance to find a great wine was exzellent. The atmosphere is very cosy. A true hidden gem.

We went here at the recommendation of friends who live locally and were delighted with the food, wine and service. This was an excellent choice, the surrounding hills are delightful so the setting is also to be recommended. Located near the Italian / Swiss border the views are stunning. But back to the restaurant - it's quite a find and... More

We arrived just before sunset a the waiter who greeted us spoke English well. We requested a seat in the shade and watched as long shadows crept across the valley below. The view is wonderful. We ordered the polenta dish to share and also the spinach. The polenta may be the best I have had so far and the spinach... More

Good dishes for affordable prices with a nice view and nice welcome. Few remarks: the service was a bit too much "teatrale" and portions (first dishes maybe) a bit small (as if this was a gastronomic restaurant...). But I'll recommend this restaurant famous from locals!
