"The wood, the fireplace and the warmth of the mountains"
In der Wirtsstube im Erdgeschoss verläuft eine Bank den Wänden entlang und umrahmt den neuen Ofen. Der Boden sowie die grossen Balken aus Lärchenholz stammen aus früherer Zeit und verleihen der Stube eine warme gemütliche Atmosphäre, wie sie zu den Bergen passt. Die Aufschnittmaschine Berkel sowie die Vitrine mit einheimischen Wurstwaren und Käse nehmen einen prominenten Platz ein. Die Wirtsstube bietet Platz für circa 30 Personen.
The "grotto" room located on the lower level is ideal for small conferences or seminars. By making a reservation you can enjoy our specialty called: the braserata. There are about twenty seating places available.
There is an additional room on the first floor which is suitable for appetizers, meetings or a standing lunch for about 15 people. Access for people with disabilities is only possible in the main hall.
Out of respect for the other guests, dogs are not allowed in the fine dining restaurant.
“The wine adds a smile to friendship and a spark of love”, De Amicis
A wide and well-selected choice of wines awaits you in our cellar. Special attention is given to choose the wines of the region. The wine choice is also extended to other countries such as Italy and France, highlighting areas of origin between the 40th and the 50th parallel, land of great wines.
There is the possibility to organize small aperitifs directly in the wine cellar with a selection of local cheeses, cured meats and salami’s from our delicatessen.
“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).
