Al Portone Review
Silver and lace dress up the stucco and stone here, but the ambience is cozy. The chef and owner, Francis Carré, serves refined Franco-Italian cuisine, including inventive dishes like cardomom-poached pears with Gorgonzola mousse and roasted loin of lamb in a Provençale crust. Vegetarians will delight in the special meatless menu, and can feast on homemade chestnut gnocchi with a local mushroom sauce and spinach-mascarpone soufflé. When the summer heat is stifling, ask to dine in the small garden. The restaurant is a true find—nowhere else in Switzerland can you find such an elegant meal at such a reasonable price.
