Al Bosco, (Zermatt)
The elegant Restaurant with sun terrace.
«Italianità under the Matterhorn».
The Matterhorn stands on the opposite side of the valley, almost surreal. Both on the sun terrace and inside the cosy restaurant, here you can admire the exceptional view of the famous Swiss mountains and the panorama of the Zermatt. Right next to the Riffelberg – Schweigmatten ski slope, the Al Bosco is the perfect place in winter to refuel with a hot chocolate or to have a lunch break. In the summer, the sun terrace invites walkers and sun lovers to relax. Over evening dinner, the light and the weather provide a spectacular natural backdrop.
Some mountain restaurants are frequented for their view; others for their food. The Al Bosco fulfils both of these wishes. It promises "Italianità under the Matterhorn": the Al Bosco is dedicated to the cuisine of the Italian and Swiss Alps. Here, chef Luigi Lafranco and his team conjure up true culinary delights. The choice consists of uncomplicated Italian classics, such as pasta and risotto, daily specials, a variety of à la carte dishes "dans la cocotte" and highlights such as the legendary Matterhorn Pizza and the Riffelalp "Gamelle", a hearty soup with spinach, potatoes, leek, pasta and cheese.
In the summer, our Walliserkeller (open in Winter only) sends some greetings with a variety of fondues and raclettes to the delight of lovers of Swiss cheese specialities.
