The view from the terrace of Grotto San Michele is incredible! And the waiters go out of their way for the guests, got me an amazing plate after the kitchen closed for lunch!

This restaurant is actually called Grotto San Michele and we decided to sit outside and look at the gorgeous views under the sun. Amazing experience and the food was good. The waiter was excellent too.

It was a perfect late October day and lunch on the terrace was in order. Service was friendly, not rushed though the restaurant was full. Husband had "one of the best salads ever, Salata Castelgrande." I thoroughly enjoyed mt\y Parmesan risotto.

Chef Davide did it again! What an amazing risotto and pigeon and lamb! Meat absolutely tasty, tender and juicy, risotto probably the finest we ever had for long time. This place is definitely the best culinary experience in Ticino.
