I had dinner here last Friday with my brother, who is a regular customer in this venue. We had a lovely experience in this wonderful rustic restaurant in the very heart of Bellinzona, just a few steps from the town house (il municipio), We had a lovely deer filet "tagliata" with a choice of vegetables and potatoes. A real treat... More

Hidden away from the main streets , just some steps up a cobblestone ally going towards the main castle, this is a charming little place offering a quality variety of food across the extensive 3 course menu. Deliciosly cooked! Wine comes by the glass, if you whish, from a choice of quality wines. A pity that the service, when paying,... More

It's a very good restaurant with Italian/Ticino/Mediterranean food. The ambience is very romantic. Prices OK! If you are in Bellinzona, it's a place to go!

I've been in this restaurant a few times and the experience is always slightly different, but the constant is that the food is good and the offer is not a common one (even though, sometimes, it is a little limited if you have restrictions due for example to religious or dietary requirements). Reservation is a must and it is better... More

I went to this placve with my Wife on the 2nd March 2013. We currently have a 2 year old little son. The restaurant did have space. When asked to come in, they advised "no bambini". We even asked if could wait and we where roughly answered 30 minutes. We walked out and another lady nicely pushed my pregnant wife... More

My wife and I had a lovely dinner in the small outside yard here in early September 2012. Swift, personal service and one of the best beef tartar I have ever had, and I have had quite a few in my days.

Having spent a wet day in Bellinzona we went to the Tourist Info for a suggestion and were given this one among a couple of others. We thought it looked nice (without being over-the-top) so entered and having immediately seen the back part of the restaurant we asked if we could sit there rather than in the front. We were... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this gem in the heart of Bellinzona. Service is great. Food is *****. The outside sitting area, in something like an alley, enclosed by old Ticinese homes, on a warm summer night, is equally pleasant. We enjoyed starters, great truffle pasta, meats and some good wine. The combination of atmosphere, great food and service can... More
