    The Grotto is situated in one of the cellars dug out of the rocks of San Nicolao at Mendrisio. Enchanting....

    Favorite Dish: Polenta cooked over the open fire, served with beans and mortadella sausage, with Gorgonzola cheese., mushrooms, and swilled down with first-class Merlot del Mendrisiotto wine.

    The fire over which they cook polenta..

    Favorite thing: It is always better to be informed about road conditions.
    So for this reason here's a website that wil tell you every Swiss tunnel and mountain pass status, open or closed.
