Just north of Zurich on the Hönggerberg, the Tessin Grotto opens its doors for fans of Ticino cuisine, boasting the warm welcome so typical of a Swiss grotto.
On the menu at this restaurant in Zurich you’ll find a host of specialities from the canton of Ticino, from prawn ravioli in saffron dough with citrus and garlic butter, chestnut ravioli with Ticino goats cheese and sage butter with pepperoncini, or oven-roasted veal shank with homemade gnocchi. Generous with their desserts, the Tessin Grotto serves up delicious mini panettone with locally-grown peaches, almonds and a honey and cream glacé, or the scorched caramelised cream with tonka bean aromas.
What could be better to complement the southern Swiss fare than wines from the same region? Come summer, the chestnut tree garden is a hit, and winter sees guests indulging in cheese fondue and bread from the Maggia valley.
Located on the Hönggerberg just north of Zurich, the restaurant is approximately twenty minutes from the city centre. The bus lines 38 and 69 take you to the Waidbadstrasse stop and the Tessin Grotto restaurant is within ten minutes from there on foot. Those travelling by car will find ample parking at the restaurant.

The location and food are very nice. The service is horrible, you have to wait a really long time to get what you've asked for.

Das Essen und der Wein war gut, nicht excellenr, aber gute Küche. Die Location ist einfach speziell,ein Grotto in der Stadt. Zu bemängeln ist nur der Service. Wir mussten 2x nach dem Wein fragen.
