GROTTO

The Grotto al Capon is a wonderfully relaxed and cozy restaurant and meeting place, where in wintertime guests meet at the big table in front of the open fireplace, and in summertime in the cooling shade of the courtyard, the Patio. Your host in the Ticino, the southern part of Switzerland, will present you with a large choice of delicious specialties of this culinary region to be enjoyed in a truly special ambiance.
