Our restaurant has been successfully implementing a unique concept for over 51 years, offering our guests nothing but simple dishes. Everything revolves around our house speciality – risotto with porcini mushrooms and gorgonzola. Both as a main course and as a side dish to fine meat cuts, our risotto always plays the prima donna. Some gourmets even say that at the Centovalli Restaurant meat is a side dish to risotto! And we serve only the best meat in the world: New Zealand lamb, fillet of beef from Ireland and veal from Ticino or Emmental.

Unfortunately, it is rather difficult for us to apply the zero mile concept to meat, because local production cannot meet our quality and quantity requirements. Everything else, however – including desserts and gelatos – is strictly homemade with fresh ingredients! So don’t expect to find an endless menu card or the super-decorated dishes of the starred cuisine: with us, you will find authenticity and a consistent quality. 99% of the wines on our card are produced by our fabulous Ticino winemakers.

Simplicity and taste are our assets!
