We were hungry and had a journey further than chiavenna but decided to stop at ombra. We had a bottle of wine with water and both of us had venison. It was excellent. Service was good and atmosphere too

Food was okay but waitress was so rude. We have been in Italy for 2 months and eaten out just about every day for either lunch or dinner and this was the worst waitress we have come across. We couldn't wait to leave

We enjoyed lunch at this place on hot day comfortably cool right under the ledge. Nice variety of local food at reasonable prices.

The most delicious gnocchi I have ever eat, hand made!! The cheese over fabulous! In the summer, you stay in the garden in shade of the big rocket outside. When you travel to or from Switzerland over the Spluga pass, it is a real event.
