“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2012

The food was delicious, refined and typical. The service was worthy of Michelin restaurants, friendly and welcoming but also very professional. While the restaurant wasonly half full, we liked very much the "typically italian" atmosphere. No so many tourists, which is good. We will return, for sure!

“BEING TRADITIONAL IS WORTH”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2012

The journey was nearly 4 hours from Turin and we reached this place selected by a friend who lives in Tirano.
A traditional Italian trattoria with a typical menu & taste of Valtellina. Portions are too large and quality is excellent. Service is professional but the staff should understand when a client says "enough" and they should not keep on insisting, as "food is yours but the stomach is mine".
Wine was perfect with our starter & the first course of pizzoccheri (very filing dish with cheese, pasta, butter & potato). Pity after these 2 courses we were unable to taste the second course.
A great experience of typical food in this area and the place is well recommended.
