When we arrived in Pontresina it was an odd hour...about 3pm. Most restaurants were done with lunch but not yet open for dinner. Gianottis was on our list for dinner, so we stopped in and were rewarded with an incredible meat and cheese platter and really good wine. Good start. Our dinner here consisted of meat...and it was delicious. I... More

Great food and great atmosphere. Stayed two weeks in Pontresina, and this was the favorite. Everything "from the grill" was excellent.

I would have missed them Pizzoccheri during my relax Weekend in Pontresina. Thank you so much for finding a seat although I had not booked a table. Thanks also for the Wine recommendation suitable to Pizzoccheri. So, if you go there book a table! Its def. worth it. Thanks again.

Very nice staff. Food was really very good. Fantastic wine selection. Advisable to book early to avoid disappointment. They open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I'm not a smoker but those who smoke cigar they have a special room for that. It's well insulated. The chocolate shop sells delicious chocolates. Staff were helpful and very friendly.

Very good place for lunch and great cakes. I recommend the pizzocheri (typical pasta of the Valtellina). The wi fi is also very good.

I've been a lot of times at Gianottis, also during its old fashioned times. The renovation improved a lot its appearance. It is just a bit sad that it is now much smaller than before and the beautiful terrace with amazing view towards Roseg has been removed. Anyway, the new Gianotti has now a beautiful, rustic and cozy atmosphere. The... More

We could not get into the restaurant the first night, but we bookied a reservation for the next. We chose our table in the " Family area" for the direct view of the grill and prep area. Fantastic view of a busy, efficient and excellent cooking. Local foods in traditional styles offered the best Swiss experience. My Venison was superb!

We were lucky to walk into this new wine bar / restaurant in the middle of a very rainy Saturday afternoon. They offer a very good choice of selected wines. We decided to try a Swiss white Chardonnay wine from the "Bündner Herrschaft", a region close to Chur in the Grison. As we had a dinner planned with friends we... More

This is a lovely little restaurant with very good service. The menu is sufficient but not extensive, but the quality of the food and wine is excellent. The staff speak several languages (English, Italian, German) and are attentive but not over fussy. We came here one night for an apero, and then back the next night for dinner. The place... More
