Our restaurant in the woods
A simple but well thought-out menu, a cosy ambience with seating for about 40 guests, a venue for private events immersed in the woods: the Bellavista Buffet offers all this. Take the cog train to the dedicated stop or follow one of the nearby trails: the 0 km regional cuisine will amaze you.
As of this year, from the 2nd of December 2023 to the 31st of March 2024 the Buffet Bellavista will be open on weekends & bank holidays.
In case of bad weather the Buffet Bellavista remains closed.
The Grotto Buffet Bellavista can be reached in various ways:
- By cogwheel train: with the Bellavista stop directly opposite
- On foot: from the various paths on Monte Generoso or from the Bellavista car park, which is the last point accessible by car.
The Bellavista car park is a municipal pay car park that can be reached from Mendrisio, following the "Monte Generoso" signs. From the car park, continue on foot towards the Bellavista station by climbing the forest road on the left, past the barrier. The route is 1.5 km long and in 15 minutes you will hike through the forest on unpaved terrain.
