We stopped there for lunch during a hike around Mendrisio. The owner kindly welcomed us and seated us at a table on their beautiful terrace, conveniently placed in the shade of trees. We ordered "today's special", which our friendly waiter brought very quickly. Our food was very tasty and our mouths also watered from looking at our neighbours' dishes! We... More

Very pleasant place with wonderfull dishes. They make perfect Risotto, spareribs, nyoki. They also have a good local wine. Only one problem: There is no English menu (only Italian) and the waiters don't speak English, too. But I really like this place!

We wanted to take our nephew to Loverciano for his first taste of venison on his last evening with us before returning home. When shown to our seats I was shocked to see that just a few tables away a family of five were dining and that a child of about five was being "entertained" by an Ipad or Ibook... More

We like to have lunch or dinner there in summertime in the freshness of the chestnut trees enjoying the typical local cuisine.

Typical tessinois food all well presented and well cooked with a menu which follows the seasons. Do not expect any experimentation or wild combinations but basic decent food.

This is a grotto (restaurant) where they serve the local food from Ticino like polenta, rabbit, etc. The also have a large choice of grilled meat. I suggest "costine di maiale" (grilled ribs, Ticino style). The restaurant is located 2km from the centre of Mendrisio direction "Valle di Muggio", just before arriving at the small village called Castel S.Pietro. the... More
