The large local families love to extend their time in the vineyard beyond the actual dinner. We decided to do the same, and to give ourselves up to the boisterous, contagiously merry mood.
The view across the vineyard is overwhelming from the patio, or could be if it was not for the power pole right in the centre of it.

Regional cuisine of the Ticino. No need to look for a menu because there is none. The market-fresh 5-course dinner changes daily, with two or three choices per course, and has a CHF 73.00 price tag.
The prices on the wine menu listing Angelo Delea products are quite fair. Taste the Merlot "Quattromani" and you will not be disappointed. The four hands the name refers to are those of four leading vintners in the Ticino: Angelo Delea, Guido Brivio, Feliciano Gialdi and Claudio Tamborini.
Nuno Correia is a very cordial host who speaks several languages. The service is attentive and swift.
