Fodor's Review

Tucked down an alley off Via Pessina, this cozy basement taverna squeezes loyal locals and tourists onto hard wooden chairs and benches for authentic regional specialties, hearty meats, and pastas. Ticinese wines are served in traditional ceramic bowls—try a strong red to cut through the thick polenta taragna, made of cornmeal and buckwheat. (Once you try this polenta, you'll never eat the bland yellow version again.) It's served with luganighe, cumin-flavored

local sausages. End your meal with strong espresso matched with light, melt-in-your-mouth tiramisu.
