“The traditional cuisine with a Mediterranean flair”

Our dishes are based on the fusion of the local valley’s cuisine and the Italian cuisine, giving greater prominence to the assets of our territory. The menu is updated monthly based on the produce in season. The delicatessen is well stocked with dried meats, salami, a cheese trolley and the homemade desserts, all deserve particular attention.

Our specialty "the braserata" (260g of angus fillet, foal, turkey and pork – all to be freshly sliced and grilled directly on the table accompanied by homemade sauces and side dishes) is only served in the grotto, by reservation.

We are at your disposal to schedule for lunches, family dinners, or corporate events. We also carry a catering service for cocktails or light refreshments. Orders can be made for cakes, homemade ice cream, and (spampezie, a sweet made of nuts and spices).
