Among the most well-known typical dishes, Pizzoccheri takes the crown: rustic noodles prepared with buckwheat flour, seasoned with cooked vegetables, butter and alp cheese; the Sciatt, curious name of crispy round pancakes stuffed with typical local cheese; and Bresaola, a traditional local cold meat, made from salted beef with the dry method.

On every occasion, the restaurant will make you feel at home, and human contact is a rule. The dishes are still the same as ever: genuine and straightforward, as Grandma Augusta taught her skilled niece.
Another positive note: on summer days, it also offers the outdoor garden, space not found elsewhere.
We love eating there with friends or family, at least once a month. Children can freely move on the large lawn that houses the wooden tables. Also very suitable for large groups.
The only limitation: when choosing the outside, the temperature must be pleasant! The cuisine is tasty and plentiful; believe us, you will come out of it satiated, and you will return for sure!
“La Rasiga” is another one of those places you can’t miss! Suppose you feel like admiring a unique location around you while tasting the best dishes of typical Valtellinese cuisine. In that case, this is the right place to choose.
It’s only open for dinner and features a rich menu of traditional dishes, such as barley soup, pizzoccheri, sciatt, manfrigole, shin and baked pork ribs. We recommend it assiduously to those looking for a truly original place to eat well.
It is the perfect combination of a historical setting and good food, where to go and then return again and again. We’ve never been proven wrong: try to believe!
