We where recommended this restaurang by a local friend and we where not disappointed. It is slightly difficult to find and we fully used our map.

The food was a delight and the service even better.

The journey was nearly 4 hours from Turin and we reached this place selected by a friend who lives in Tirano. A traditional Italian trattoria with a typical menu & taste of Valtellina.
