Fodor's Expert Review Grotto Malakoff

$$ Bellinzona Italian

In this small family restaurant uphill from the town center, chef Rita Fuso prepares innovative Italian dishes and variations on regional fare from high-quality local ingredients—the pasta is homemade, the vegetables and meats often come from nearby farms, and some of the herbs come from Fuso's own garden. The best value (at around 32 SF) is the daily two-course special, with dishes such as monkfish carpaccio followed by a beef fillet with grilled seasonal vegetables.
