Osteria San Giorgio,
our second one.
To us belongs the Osteria San Giorgio, the place around the corner. A small pension with 12 rooms and an Osteria with typical regional dishes. It is located about 1km from the Hotel Garni Tiziana. Accessible by bus, on foot or by car. Free parking is available.
The San Giorgio was originally a stable for cows, which was converted into a bakery and in the 40 years into a café-bar, where the locals met for an espresso or an after-work boccalino. Over time, the café-bar became an osteria. The name San Giorgio comes from Saint San Giorgio, who protects the church and the neighbourhood.
The osteria has 50 indoor and 60 outdoor seats.
Inside there are 3 parts. The main part, the actual restaurant, a rustic hall for romantic evenings, and a small hall, which we have reserved mainly for our younger guests. There are games, a table for playing and painting and a football box.
In warm weather you can sit on our always cool, shady and covered terrace.
For families we have our “Grottino” where children can go directly to our small playground.
If it is a bit cooler or you want to eat outside undisturbed with your club, group or climbing friends, we recommend our winter garden “Pergola”.
You are also welcome to bring your four-legged friend. We have a heart for dogs and are happy to find a place where he feels comfortable too.
We pay attention to regional, fresh and sustainable products. Our menu is changed regularly and according to the season.
Specialities San Giorgio: Risotto with red Ticino merlot and Luganighetta served in the caquelon, Fritto misto del lago (fried lake fish) and in summer our marinated spare ribs (puntine).
In winter we serve the San Giorgio Ticino cheese fondue with Valle Maggia pepper, fondue chinoise and old Ticino dishes such as cazzöla.
We are also suitable for family, club and birthday dinners. Every guest, big or small, should be happy with us.
We will gladly reserve a table for you.
We look forward to seeing you.
