Ate twice at the Osteria, once with a group of 6 friends and then as a couple. Fabulous view, family owned and operated osteria, splendid food, and lovely people. We'll continue to return and recommend - the risotto is special, and the roast pork was the best in Switzerland! Thanks to the family!

Only go there, if you are not afraid to drive on narrow, winding mountain roads ... cause you will. But it's worth it

We spent a couple of days in Brissago at the Lago Maggiore. We ended up going there twice. I have no idea how they do it; everything we tasted had this home-made character to it with a lot of flavor. We had the Goat and Veal and tried both the Risotto Borei and Risotto Funghi as a side and also tried the Artichoke Ravioli. All of the above can be wholeheartedly recommended. If in doubt go for a Risotto as a side, its is really great. So I do hope you're not the carb-avoiding kind as you will miss out big time.

The service was very charming.

The way up there is quite long and winded and when you think you lost your way it is most likely not the case so keep on driving and you will get there, hopefully... because it is definetly worth it.

Try and make reservations by calling them.

Excellent service and fantastic local food! Try the risotto ai funghi, simply delicious! Not easy to drive up there, but once you arrive....its worth 1000 times!!!!!

We were a bit dissapointed after our walk up the hill. The reception was poor and not professionel. After waiting long for something to drink it took even longer for the average food. The place is quite nice and has a bit of a view, but we and our friends were not really impressed.
Prices are ok but overall it was not worth going there. The menu is very limited and the service was unfriendly.
