The menu features some local dishes like pizzocheri and schiat that are absolutely delicious and impossible to not try. We had lunch which was so good we returned for breakfast and dinner. The service is friendly and efficient and the ambience is the most beautiful of all the Tirano restaurants we tried. A lovely place to eat in a very convenient location close to both railway stations.
Drinks in the afternoon also include complimentary lovely nibbles like delicious fresh pizza.
A must try when in Tirano.

We had lunch here prior to boarding the Bernina Express. We just wandered up from the station skipping the usual Italian food places. We were tired of eating pasta and pizza after staying two weeks in Italy. The roasted whole chicken dish is large enough for two people, and when we stated that we would share (in my limited Italian) they split the dish onto two plates with additional side dishes. The chicken was very tasty and cooked just right. The cappuccino was also delicious.

It was lunch time and raining,and we had just got off wonderful bernina express.So we decided to have lunch at this Italian restaurant. Well,what a surprise.there were 4 of us.2 ordered soup,1 ravioli,and I ordered a small pizza.the soups were very good,the ravioli also good,and then came the small pizza. It was delicious and large enough to have fed us all.we also had a beer,and some coffees which were also good.The waitress didn't speak much English,but with plenty of smiles and laughter we communicated ok.The restaurant is only 50 metres or so from the rail station,and the prices were not as expensive as Switzerland.So if you are getting on or off the bernina express head straight there and enjoy a a nice meal.

We had a short stop in Tirano before going on the Bernina Express and decided to lunch here based on the good reviews. And we were glad that we did. Good food. Good wine. Friendly staff. We sat outside and it was delightful. The rest of our party went elsewhere and were disappointed. So glad we chose this restaurant.

Travelled to Tirano on the Bernina Express and just wish we had checked TA before travelling and read these reviews!! We took a picnic with us and ate in a nearby park, then wandered back towards the station and popped into the Caffe Merizzi for Coffee. Who should we see in the restaurant, but the guy from the train who checks the tickets. As he frequently makes this journey he obviously knows the best place to eat - and there he was eating lunch! The menu looked great, as did the food. Our coffee was 4 Euro ...fantastic value after paying chf 4.50 per cup in Switzerland!
Wonderful icecreams were aslo being sold at Caffe Merizzi, via the street window. We listened to a wonderful conversation whereby the purchaser used her best schoolgirl Spanish to order and pay for the ice-creams! Obviously totally forgot this was Italy - the best bit was that the girl serving her didn't enlighten her at all! Don't make our mistake - forget the picnic and stop at this restaurant.
