The Grotto was well patronised for Sunday lunch. The menu card was fairly extensive and with varied dishes. Three of the five us , selected the favourite of the house, grilled chicken,... More

I've lived in Ticino for some years, had a holiday apartment for 20 years and yet I have never been to Grotto Broggini in this time. I really wonder why, it will remain a mystery. I really loved the place as we visited it last night. In many ways this is not a Grotto- it does itself a disservice to... More

Enjoyed the spit roast chicken and the pasta, bit price but no more so than anywhere else in Switzerland. Would definitely to again, easy to find and park, plenty of space.

For family celebrations, get together with friends or just for good dining, the Grotto Broggini is a reference point in the Locarnese since decades. In the Summer we enjoy the Al Fresco dining, while in the winter the inside dining is truly charming and full of tradition. Solid local dishes with nice seasonal variations. Can't go wrong on anything. Staff... More

We have been going to Broggini for more than 10 years. In all that time we have never been disappointed. The food is excellent, the service friendly and attentive and the ambience warm and welcoming. Summer one eats in the garden: in the Winter inside by the fire
