At Grotto Pedemonte, Catia and Matteo Rossoni welcome you with a smile, in this grotto among the vineyards. Prices are very reasonable, portions are generous (the bread basket is stuffed with man-sized chunks), the piatto ticinese is one of the best around and the short wine list has been chosen with care, often including a number of local producers.
Come for a lazy lunch, a glass of wine mid-afternoon, or book for dinner - and booking is highly recommended. Take time out to stroll round the village if you can: it's one of the prettiest in the area and the location of the famous Dimitri theatre school.
Closed from mid December to the end of January.
(Winter timetable, from 5th November: Thursday, Friday, Saturday evening and Sunday lunch)
