On the year 1834 Grotto Antico lays it’s first stone for later becoming a place to meet for everyone that desires some peace and tranquility.
Grotto Antico is located in Malcantone, just a couple of kilometers from Lugano and takes it’s name for the peculiar structure which is hollowed and built in stone, like the typical Ticino’s grottos.
Grotto Antico offers a creative cookery, elaborate dishes with seasonal products that chef Omar and chef Gabriele always know how to compose in artistic and original ways.
The dishes combine to optimum wines from the Grotto’s cellar. This one holds up to 110 labels and it is the Grotto’s pride. Absorbed in the greenness, you can enjoy the fresh air if you are sitting on the
terrace, a lunch or serene dinner in a cozy space in the main lounge, or private meetings or romantic dinners in the Grotin.
