“A great north Italian dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2011 via mobile

I really enjoy the dinner last night I hav been there with my wife and we passed a very nice evening. We ate pizzoccheri (WOW!) and an amazing sciat ( I think that was the name) that is like fried cheese... The place is almost inside a cave.
We drink a Fay Sfursat wine 2006. Perfect. It's not expensive at all. This a place I will visit again for sure. Thank you for the dinner.

“Nice food, nice place but quite expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2011

I have visited this restaurant several times as I live in the area. The location is nice and so is the atmosphere. In the warm season you can eat outside. It's for sure a classy place - good service, nice furniture. The food is very good and the wine list in really impressive. They do regional cuisine from Valtellina (a mountain region in Italy), so pizzoccheri and meat are their trademark. The onyl negative point is the price, which is quite high and, although in line with what you get, it has no relationship with the kind of food you will be eating which is tradionally food made with 'poor' ingredients.
