Old-fashioned and cozy this restaurant is really a hidden gem for me as non local. Found it once and you will never forget. The best tartar with white truffles I ever eat and other dishes also are excellent.

Nice grotto, food is quite good. My wife had a very tender entrecote. I had some tasty ravioli. I would have given this grotto 5 stars if it weren't for the waiters being unsmiling and not particularly friendly.

Tucked away in a more residential area of Lugano behind the main train station, Grotto Della Salute never fails to please. It serves traditional local cuisine and has a wide choice of dishes on the menu. It is set in a stunning tree covered location...More
