Good food and service

Enjoyed the spit roast chicken and the pasta, bit price but no more so than anywhere else in Switzerland. Would definitely to again, easy to find and park, plenty of space.

For family celebrations, get together with friends or just for good dining, the Grotto Broggini is a reference point in the Locarnese since decades. In the Summer we enjoy the Al Fresco dining, while in the winter the inside dining is truly charming and full of tradition. Solid local dishes with nice seasonal variations. Can't go wrong on anything. Staff... More

Grotto Broggini is a very popular spot, both for couples as well as for families. Large Restaurant inside and with a beautiful garden with large trees. They offer all sort of Ticino (Swiss) Food of very good Quality. One of their specialities is "small grilled chicken" that are very tasty. Their staff has been with them for many years and... More

We have been going to Broggini for more than 10 years. In all that time we have never been disappointed. The food is excellent, the service friendly and attentive and the ambience warm and welcoming. Summer one eats in the garden: in the Winter inside by the fire

A typical grotto where you can sit outside under the trees and enjoy the delicious food. The wine menu, too, is excellent. Service is friendly and effective.

We made a reservation per phone. Finally arrived, they put us down in the basement on some garden furniture in the tiniest dark corner. Did I say it was empty?!? We didn't like it asked twice and the request was put down, nothing else free. Well, we left and they didn't care. The death of every restaurant, they think they... More

They have a wonderful terrace under trees. The food is very nice, although it shouldn't be in the "grotto" category, neither for the vast choice nor pricewise.
