Grotto Eguaglianza

The Grotto Eguaglianza is nearby the Monte Generoso, exactly next to the old village of Capolago (in street Via Municipio) where the used to be the wine cellars.

Alejandra and Alessandro are a couple of restaurateurs with a thirty-year experience.

Their precedent activity was the Grotto della Salute in Massagno, Lugano.

In 2013 they decided to face a new professional challenge. They renovated and now they run the Grotto Eguaglianza.

The kitchen philosophy is based on the principle of dishes completely prepared by our cookers and only and the preference of natural ingredients without food additives.

In addition to the event of tasting a delicious meal, it’s also important to digest.

The offer is principally based on traditional recipes interpreted in a contemporary key.

“I primi” mostly consist in home made pastas, then “the secondi” roasted meats or prepared in sauce (like the “brasato” in red wine sauce) and more over lake fish or sea fish cooked in different ways.

The quality of the merchandise is ensure by the narrow collaboration with the suppliers of the territory.

The restaurant is yearly reviewed on the guide: Michelin, Gault Millaut and “Osterie d’Italia” (Slow Food).

The restaurant has salon for events and banquets from 20 to 50 persons. It can be also used as meeting room (free Wi-Fi connection included).
