Description: The "Crotti", typical environments of Chiavenna and its valley are scattered about ninety locations, including the most important is this Pratogiano. Arise out of a window of the natural rock (in dialect "Sorel") from which blows a stream of air at almost constant temperature throughout the year. Are used since ancient times to preserve wine, cheese and salami and also as places of calm and convivial get-togethers with family and friends. They belong to private households and only some are public. Every year since 1956, in September, held a festival with opening to the public of crotti private

We stopped in here on a Sunday afternoon for lunch. Our friend recommended the local pizzeria , which is made with a white flour pizzoccheri and plenty of cheese. The plate arrived within 5 minutes and we had a very fast lunch, which was perfect because we walked through the historic center afterwards. Before we could leave they brought us local cookies which we ate with pleasure. The price per person was 10€, which included , a plate of vegetables and a beer.

Quick service in a very comfy place. White pizzoccheri are very yummy. They offered a shot diring the bill paying. The street is walkable only as it's restricted to cars.

On 21st August we made a day trip to Chiavenna from Lake Como with family friends.
We had a lovely time wandering around this beautiful mountain town and we decided we would like to eat in a "Crotto".
Chiavenna is famous for "Crotti" A Crotto is a natural cavity in the mountain where the temperature is ideal for storing wine, cheese and local meats.
I selected Crotto al Prato and while we were trying to find it, we asked a local for directions and he directed us, saying that we had chosen the best one in Chiavenna.
We will be returning - it was fantastic. The staff and the owner were delightful and the local dishes were wonderful and the portions were very generous.
Price was very reasonable and the owner told us to take a wonder inside the Crotto to see where all the "goodies" are stored. Check out the photos I took!!

If you are in Chiavenna and having lunch , here is one for the short list.

Wish I could go to the Festival of the Crotti in September!!
