Beautiful location, very good service! The managing director cares of details. Recommend for kids, you will find an outstanding play area. Nice wine choice. Always fresh food. Price / quality on the range.

We have visited the grotto already several times in the summer time. They have a very nice garden with a kids playground and some tables under the grape leaves. The food is nice (maybe a bit pricy) and there is also always something for everybody.

This is a regular stop during our visit to Locarno & Ascona. Their famous dish is grilled chicken (over open fire) with Risotto. This place is always busy and reservations are recommended.

The service is very fast, even when there are many customers. Not all of the dishes offered are part of the local tradition but the food quality is excellent. I recommend to visit it in autumn to taste the meat plates.

I had the chance to visit this lovely Grotto Broggini on the 19th of June 2016 with friends for lunch. The warm welcome we received was very heartening. 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.
