Description: Il grotto, costruito oltre un secolo fa ma rimodernato da poco, dispone di spazi ben distribuiti sia all'interno che all'esterno. La cantina dei vini é scavata in una roccia che garantisce ottime condizioni per il mantenimento dei numerosi vini. La cucina si basa sulle antiche e gustose ricette ticinesi e lombarde, senza dimenticare produzioni e merci locali legate al territorio circostante. Il ritrovo ideale per chi cerca la cucina di qualità e per gli amanti del buon vino.

“Good food, but extremely overprice”
Reviewed 21 June 2012

I went with some friends there and we ordered traditional food on the menu. The food was good, but the price are crazy. We spent nearly 100 Swiss franc each, that because we ask for a second portion and they made us to pay as was another plate. Awful!
