Best places to eat near Casa Cima
Perhaps it's the pristine mountain air, perhaps the outdoor activities that work up an appetite, but whether you're settling in to a meal or bread, wine & cheese, or heading out to one of the cute nearby restaurants, everything always seems to taste better in Italy. Cima has plenty of dining options. Here are some of our favourites for Dinner.
La Traverna (Piazza Selva, 22018 Cima, Italy, +39 0344 72738) has to be one of the best authentic Italian restaurants we've been to. The food is delicious & you wont find more friendly & welcoming service. Giorgio will take great care of you. They also cater for vegetarians. Their Pizza is delicious, but note they don't serve it for lunch. The Conservatory has great views out over the lake. It can get quite busy with locals (always a great reflection of the food) so do book ahead. ...& do try their ice-cream.
La Masseria Beach & Terrace Grill (Localita Cini 21, 22018 Cima, Italy, +39 0344 629131) is a great dinner option, with organic food options on the kids menu too. They have a beautiful balcony setting overlooking Lake Lugano, & one of the largest wine lists we've seen in this region, which gives you all the ingredients for a very romantic evening. Do ask to sit outside when you book. As with a number of restaurants in the region, fruits, vegetables & dairy products are sourced from local farms, making for delicious fresh food. If steak is your thing, ask about their organic beef options, or their Lombardian Rib eye.
Ristorante & Bistro San Marco (Via Privata San Marco 1, 22018 Cima, Italy, +39 0344 629131) has a buffet option, & manager Roberto has been known to show any kids a few magic tricks. However there is also an area for couples in the conservatory. With its mountain & lake views & excellent food this is a great venue to linger over good food & wine with good friends. I half expect George Clooney & Amal to walk in...
