“Good food paves the way to good health”
is Chef Ambrogio’s motto.
Many local products can be tasted and enjoyed at Vecchia Osteria Seseglio, such as mini cheese portions and Muggio Valley Zincarlin, used as a delicious filling for exclusively handmade ravioli. Bruzella Watermill stone-ground polenta, Alpine cheeses with “Pan Tramvai” (raisin bread), artisanal honey and lake fish are also an important part of our menus, as well as a selection of Ticino wines from our cellar of course.
Permanent fixtures on the menu are the famous Risotto dell’Erminio, calveshead cooked in a variety of ways and slow-cooked meats such as braised beef cheeks and beef brisket with olive oil.
Classic specialities for meat lovers include a variety of poultry and other meat. Duck, chicken, guinea fowl, rabbit, kid, lamb and suckling pig are key features of our cuisine, and our customers particularly love our honey glazed duck, suckling pig with cocoa, steak tartare and double Simmental veal cutlets.
From the end of August, game becomes the star of our menu, and saddle of venison Baden Baden style with its entirely homemade garnishes is our most requested dish until well into December. Depending on the catch and the inspiration of the moment, fish is served baked whole in a salt or a potato crust, while delicate, aromatic salmon is marinated and smoked in the Osteria’s outdoor fireplaces.
Traditional desserts are always available – cakes freshly baked daily with creamy ice-creams or Bourbon vanilla custard, zabaione with nocino (walnut liqueur), bread pudding and trifle. Molten chocolate cake with passionfruit sorbet and mousses are a delight for the sweet-toothed.
Put together by expert sommeliers, the wine list includes more than 300 labels from the best Ticino, Italian and French producers.
