Grotto Valletta

The Grotto Valletta in Massagno, located a stone's throw from the center of Lugano, is the perfect blend between a modern concept based on street food/pop cuisine, and a concept linked to the Ticinese territory favoring local flavors. Traditional stone’s tables, “grottino” space in the basement, magnificent terrace protected by characteristic plane trees, and a bowls field, are the ideal setting for any type of occasion.

At Grotto Valletta, a young and dynamic team led by Francesco Coldesina, son of art of the great Chef Guerino, proposes a menu that aim to satisfy every palate; veal meatballs, ravioli “del Plin”, frog legs “Guerino’s way”, but also Neapolitan pizza, delicious burgers and Vegan dishes, are some of the best sellers that can be paired with a craft beer or a good regional wine or even a natural wine.

Open every day from 9:30 am to midnight, the Grotto Valletta in Massagno has become a gastronomic institution for local and non-local customers alike; with a high focus on courtesy and quality, it is the ideal location for breakfast, business lunche, dinner with friends or corporate events as well as birthday parties.
