A great local, family run restaurant serving the best pizzoccheri in town with a very friendly and service orientated waitress. Fair prices, small seating area outside with basic decor but a good atmosphere and clearly popular with locals.

Great food with efficient service, refuelled after a lovely lunch. Highly recommend for a stop off, parking right outside. Friendly, helpful staff, don't miss it for a stop off en route to Garda.

Cold spaghetti carbonarra. No suggestions. Service without a smile. Even though we were the only ones there.

In my opinion the Motrice has the best Pizzoccheri I've ever eaten. I'm often there and it is always lovely to see Ornella. Even more lovely are the elderly two twin sisters that work in the kitchen. A delicious idyllic family tale. The restaurant itself...is not posh, but cozy and authentic. In summer they have a very small garden.More

On a wet May Day we had taken train from St Moritz and stopped in the small town of Poschiavo. On the recommendation of other reviews we went to Motrice and were not disappointed. Good value local food and nice location. Easy walk through old...town back to station for return to St M Give it a try you won't be disappointedMore

Motrice was conveniently located to the railway station. The main reason I chose this restaurant was because I didn't have much time between trains. The food was unexpectedly great. Even a simple dish, such as spaghetti pomodoro was memorable. Portions were generous and service was...good. Prices were relatively low for Switzerland..More

Lovely staff and good value. Shame not many other people were there, probably because it is not in the main town.

We had one of the local specialties and that was quite good. However salad was very basic and the bread was stale. Service was good.
