Fine dining in Val Bregaglia
The Bregaglia Valley is characterised by culinary boundaries and differences - wholesome mountain cuisine meets Italian elegance. Many regional delights find their way to the plates. The chestnut specialities, whether sweet or salty, give the dishes a special charm. And of course the mountain cheese, which is served in polenta, with pizzoccheri or pure on the table. Or the game specialities and mushrooms that come from our forests. Let us spoil you, every restaurant has its own special menu! Here on this page, we would like to briefly introduce you to the restaurants from Maloja to Castasegna.
In Maloja Capolago a rustic and familiar atmosphere awaits you with dishes that are homemade from A to Z. The Bellavista offers delicious fish and meat dishes and relies on a seasonal, traditional and fresh cuisine. The pasta is also carefully made by hand. The meat fondue is also famous. The restaurant has 25 seats inside and a nice terrace outside.
