everything great. Risotto was world class; steak was exceptional. liked atmosphere, "private" and "intimate". wine prices very reasonable for Swiss standard.

This was a another recommended restaurant for us to try even if you have to climb up and weave in and around to find it. Definitely worth the walk as it is very peaceful with a quite elegance inside. Wine selection is varied and we settled on a nice white as we looked at the wonderful menu. Each in our... More

This is one of those places that doesn't look like much from the outside - we approached it from the top road and had to squeeze past cars on a mechanic's forecourt to get to its path (maybe there's a main entrance elsewhere?), and the terrace overlooks a square tarmac area (?) and a patch of grass that would be...

We were sitting outside (wit sea view), staff very attentive and professional. Food classic Italian and Ticino, it is more on the conservative sinde, but with style. I had tortellini with ricotta/lemon filling as primo and a filetto di corregone (whitefish) from the lake, which was delicious. The desserts are fantastic. No complaints, we just enjoyed this very nice evening!

We stopped by one evening for a light snack - and enjoyed sitting on the terrace eating delicious asparagus prepared in three different ways and served with perfect ham. We will hopefully go back one day for a full meal.

We've been here one month ago for a special dinner after a friend of mine suggestion. Fine food, elegant but informal atmosphere, friendly personnal underlined a nice evening and a qualified cuisine. It's not possible to give you a specific food suggestion because every day the menu is changed due to market availability; and this is a very good quality... More

Canvetto is a lovely restaurant, very clean and well kept, food is excellent thanks to Cesare, Cesare and his wife Paola are the owners, Cesare is the chef and Paola takes care of the clients. Good wine list, good service, lovely atmosphere.
