The story of the Grotto Bundi is almost a secular one. In the more authentic frame of the Ticino, more than 80 years ago, a certain Abbondio Calderari opens the antique Grotto, where his name is linked to in the dialectal form of “Bundi”. Nowadays as then, the Grotto Bundi welcomes its guests, immersed in an unpolluted nature on the feet of the Mount Generoso.
Tradition and attention to authenticity fuse together in these warm surroundings where delicious food is created and presented with passion by Sandrine and Stefano Romelli, proprietors and managers since 1993, almost quarter of a century ago. It is a journey to rediscover the flavors of the past, where the polenta, cooked in the fireplace, is proposed in countless varieties along with game, meat and mushrooms. Do not miss a visit to the cellars of the Grotto, which contain real treasures of the area, ready to go with the courses on every occasion.
