"We always take our very special guests to Grotto del Giuvan because while the atmosphere is that of a typical Tessinois restaurant which hasn't been ruined with chrome and glitz, the menu is rich with clever combinations of local produce, a welcome change from the usual minestrone, brasata, funghi a..."nd polenta. It is also one of too few eating places in Ticino which declare that all the food they serve is prepared and cooked in their kitchen and not bought in ready-made...and always provide for vegetarians in their menus. An American guest on a business trip to Europe declared that the meal he had here was better than any tasted in Paris and Bologna.

"Grotto del Giuvan is a homely nice restaurant at the bottom of Monte Generoso. It has a nice terrace overlooking Mendrisio, but what really distinguishes this restaurant is the use of local produce to deliver excellent food with a genuine touch. Being a "Grotto" (a traditional restaurant in this reg..."ion of Switzerland), it has a rustic atmosphere.
Among the things we tried out there was the "risotto allo zincarlin" (a type of cheese produced only a few km away in Valle di Muggio) and a delicious entree based on asparagus. The selection of home made deserts was also mouth watering, and I definitely recommend "panna cotta alla farina bona".

"Very pleasant place with wonderfull dishes. They make perfect Risotto, spareribs, nyoki. They also have a good local wine. Only one problem: There is no English menu (only Italian) and the waiters don't speak English, too.
But I really like this place!"
