Airolo is where the South Gothard entrance is. Before you get (bored) into the tunnel, there's a few places where you can enjoy some of the best the local has to offer. This is one of them. If you are a cheese lover, you really...More

Modern building, no real atmosphere, food average, service average - but Caseificio del Gottardo is mainly a place for cheeses - great selection of locally produced cheeses.

Very bad service and deluding dishes. The products seems good, but are not well cooked, neither accurately prepared. They treated us using bad manners, rudely. I went tree times (wanting to give one more more chance to the restaurant) with my partner and friends, and...More

In this restaurant it's all about cheese! We had a great cheese fondue and others had raclette! The quality is great! If you have the chance to pass by give it a try...if you like cheese of course!

I needed a small dinner to fill the hole and go on driving and was happy to find this place. Had a "polenta pasticciata" and a couple of glasses of red wine, which was just what I needed, but with good quality at reasonable price.

As soon as you walk in, you smell the cheese! It's a really cosy place. The staff was nice but not particularly friendly or cheerful. But the food was really great! I ordered the Tagliatelle ai quattro formaggi (tagliatelle with four cheeses) (19 CHF) which...More
