“Unique and hidden gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

We visited it during game season (October), and I had one of the best meals of my life. There is no menu, but lots to choose from (be attentive when the waitress talks about the many choices). Chestnut gnocchi (potato pasta) and the giant "black" ravioli was a treat! They only have a few seats, so it's better to make a reservation. I will be back!

“cute gourmet corner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

When i first went to Pedemonte restaurant it was after a very enthusiastic recommendation about food quality. And that was right.
Food is really high quality but that is not the most remarkable detail. We enjoyed a quiet environment in a cute “homemade” dining room with a delicate choice of dishes combining traditional and modern cuisine trends. There is no card or menu, since the “carta” is sung by the restaurant service-leader. Wide good quality wine selection, specially local and Italian. In short: a lovely quiet corner to enjoy not just food but gastronomy…

“Real Italian cooking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

There is no menu in this place, one has to trust the owner who recites the menu in italian and helps if you don't speak the language (how they use to do it once in Italy), she is very friendly and makes great suggestions regarding the wine.

This is very good seasonal Italian cooking with lots of vegetarian alternatives. The price is very reasonable considering the quality one gets.

“Excellent Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

Last night we decided to go out for a superb dinner in town. Bellinzona doesn't offer much although there are 3-4 places where you can definitely eat an high class meal while staying in the "budget" (whatever budget means...).

Anyway headed to Pedemonte Restaurant, an exclusive top class restaurant. Great food, great wine, fantastic ambiance. A MUST place to go! don't forget to book in time.
