“Friendly, cozy and yummy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

When we have quick lunch during transit near by station, normally, we don't expect too much in terms of food taste, environment and service. Alessia who served us from translating Italian menu to English to arrange the special Vongole for my wife which was not on the menu provided the exceptional service with treating us like regular guest.
Dear travelers, if you'd like to have some break at friendly, cozy environment with nice Pasta and beautiful sparkling wine during your long journey, Merizzi will be the right place. Grazie mille Alessia ^__^

“No 1 for a reason”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

We just happened upon this restaurant while waiting to go on the Bernina Express and it was such a pleasant surprise. While they didn't have an English menu the waitress explained everything for us and the meal was good. The service was exceptional as after our meal we were interested in the house wine that we had had and the waitress took the time and explained about the local wine and produce. We wish that we could have bought more as the wine was excellent value for money.
There are a few restaurants as you come out of the train station but walk up the hill a short way to Merizzi which is on the corner and you will be treated to a great meal.

“wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

We stumbled on this place prior to reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. It deserves all the excellent reviews it has recieved.

Being from Australia and not having had a burger or chips for over two weeks travelling through Italy this was the right place at the right time. They were better than what we can do at home. My fiance had fish and chips with a homemade tartare with a twist, yummo. One of the owners explained she has family in Oz and that is where the idea came from.

Had dessert which was delicious. Coffee was great.

We went back the next day for late breaky / brunch and had two very tasty and original meals that we hadnt seen so far. Freshly squeezed juice as well.

It is easy to talk about the food but it is a very cool place as well, kinda french provincial with some great touches.

English only speaking was not an issue. Everyone was so genuinely nice.

“Great food, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

We read the reviews on TripAdvisor and decided to have a meal at Caffe Merizzi when we were in Tirano. Conveniently located close to the train station, the place was easy to find. The menu was in Italian but our hostess spoke very good English. She recommended the seasonal local cuisine and we were delighted with the choices we made. The food was delicious and the overall experience so positive that we won't hesitate in recommending this place to anyone who visits Tirano.
