A bit hidden away, this location next to the river, has something fascinating. Fixed stone tables outside thus fixed seating. Inside also several tables. Staff only speaking Italian Nice dishes, promptly served, even during weekdays rather busy. Better make reservations when with group

The location was very nice between two bridges with a nice view on the river. The food was fine and not expensive. However, the service was rather poor which killed the appetite and the nce setting / location of the restaurant.

Another great visit at the Due Ponti on a very rainy summer day. Lunch menu was just so good, and my 16 francs "pasta of the day" delicious. This, in my opinion, is one of the most cozy Grottos in Ticino!
