Fodor's Review

Having a meal in this family-run Italian restaurant feels like being let in on a neighborhood secret. Start with a pasta, like the marvelous homemade orecchiette (ear-shaped pasta) or mezzelune (half moons) stuffed with ricotta and spinach, then try something from the grill, like gamberoni alla griglia (grilled shrimp). The staff members don't speak English, but their warmth needs no translation. The restaurant is just outside the city center in a residential neighborhood but easily reached by car or bus. Take Bus 8 or 9 from the train station to the last stop, Viganello.
