Stayed and the motel and had dinner here. Food is tasty and filling - just like Nona would make. Sitting outdoors was relaxing and fun. Owners are super friendly people!

We had a large group and the food was excellent. The wood oven pizza is fantastic. The ice cream was out of this world. Made with local berries fresh picked that day it was like an explosion of flavour with each bite.

Gisela does an amazing job of bringing typical southern Swiss food from her country and mixing it with Northern Italian dishes. All delicious. Portions are generous and the wine selection suits the cuisine very well.
