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!

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
