The Ponzio family operate the Steinbock and they are the most wonderful people. You get warm Southern Italian hospitality in the heart of the Swiss Alps! The rooms are spacious and newly renovated with gorgeous bathrooms, plush bedding and flat screen tv. The location is the best in town, right below the First Lift Station, which whisks you up to many spectacular hikes. The train station is a 5 minute walk from the hotel. Not only do you get a terrific room and location at the Steinbock, they have the best restaurant in Grindelwald hands down! Salvi Ponzio, the owner of the hotel and restaurant serves up the best food we have ever had in Europe. His wood-fired pizzas are better than any we have had in Italy. His filet of beef is the single greatest steak dinner I have ever had in my life! The cuisine is classic Italian cooked with the freshest local ingredients. The locals love it as much as the tourists! It was packed every night we ate there which was 4 nights in a row! Salvi, an Anthony Quinn look-alike, will make your stay at his hotel and restaurant the best part of your Switzerland trip. The Hotel Steinbock and Ristoranti di Salvi totally rock!!!
