Reviewed July 26, 2012

We crossed over from Swiss to Italy over alphs. Altavilla was a really nice Italian treat for us.

Try the Wine. And have a relaxed dinner in garden tables.

“Wonderful dining experience”
Reviewed August 16, 2011

We have been traveling to Bianzone for over ten years to have dinner at Senora Anna's charming restaurant. The food is excellent and wine selection fantastic. This year they even had one of the best beers I have ever tasted from a local microbrewery. The restaurant is not formal and has the feeling of an extended living room (with two friendly dogs). There's a wonderful terrace overlooking the valley where you can eat outside during the good weather (be sure to reserve this!).

Senora Anna is a strong proponent of the Slow Foods movement and serves typical local dishes of the highest quality. I love the Schatt, pizzocheri and buckwheat ravioli especially (all appetizers), but the meat dishes are also excellent.

She has an excellent selection of wines. On this visit we had a local Valtellina red wine (25 euros) and a bottle of the local specialty Sfursat di Veltellina (made from grapes dried for several months before pressing, about 15% alcohol, about 38 euros).

Bianzone is a small town up in the hills overlooking the valley. It's about a 15-minute trip from Tirano Italy. We have taken a cab to the restaurant from the Bernina Express station in Tirano ... several years ago it cost about 10 Euros but it's probably more now. Of course you can drive, she has several parking spaces below the restaurant (be sure to get directions and/or use your navigation device ... it's not easy to find).

Senora Anna also has several rooms above the restaurant and so we usually stay there overnight after having dinner. (We paid about 80 euros for a double room and fantastic breakfast.) Senora Anna also has lots of connections with local wineries and arranged a visit for us on one of our trips (of course you should buy several bottles of wine when you visit these places).

Senora Anna speaks Italian and German, and a little English. Other staff members also speak a little English.
