“Grotto as grottos should be”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

List is short and when there's nothing left, that's it.
Walking menù is the daughter of Mr. Morandi, otherwise known as "Eppe", she tells what the kitchen has to offer, ticks the choice off the list and places your order.
Try the Stinco di maiale, pork's leg, slowly roasted accompanied by hand cut chips, what yanks call fries.
My wine is the local house wine, known as Nostranello.
In spring the goat kid liver is something to travel for, first in gets it, the rest must wait to next time.
Open from Thursday to Sunday, thus is most possibly one of the last real local eateries, avoiding pasta or pizza on their charts.

“Grotto old style”
Reviewed 31 January 2012

A very tipical grotto in a nice position!
You can find real ticino food aleays fresh; something typical is that you don't have a menu but the waitress will explain to you what you can eat on that day :-)
Don't miss the house wine!

“This is THE tipcal local grotto”
Reviewed 16 November 2011

You'll get the menu spoken to you by Mr Morandi, the owner, who then ticks off your choice with a pencil from the list he's been given in the kitchen. And when there's no more, it's over. Pure genuine cooking, all prepared day by day. Delicious. And do finisch off with the speciality, called "strüüss".
