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

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.

when we got to the grotto, i expected something smaller. it is like a fast food place. the food arrives very fast too. we ordered the famous grilled chicken, nothing special, a bit dry. but the risotto that comes with it, is very good. ordered a mixed grill plate with traditional sausages, lamb, pork ribs and beef, all served with...

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.

We made the reservation by email, which was promptly confirmed. The decision to eat there was made by looking at the website, where the restaurant appears to be a quite cozy place. Only when we got there did we realize that this is a restaurant with hundreds of seats. There are at least a 120 seats outside, if not more.... More

Large restaurant, attractive inside with a big terrace to sit outside. The menu was rather limited, but the quality of the food was good.

Fine place, shadowed under tall trees; fine service, fine food, well served and openness to families with kids. A playground is available next to the outdoor tables. There's a large car park, also indicating that the number of seats availabl is huge. It's mostly for turists, but you will find all ingredients of a Tyssin grotto, no doubts. It must... More
