This a fantastic grotto with tables just under an impressive slate of stone. It is a lively and friendly place with the best food we have tried in Chiavenna. We have been quite systematic and have tried all of the grottos. We had pizzoccheri which...More

Dinner at Crotto Ombra was very tasty. Our dinner selection: House cured Bresaola (cured beef), thinly sliced, served with breads and crostini sticks, followed by the main course of grilled pork ribs and vegetables and a selection of local cheeses rounded off a very delicious...More

Its a little big so it doesnt get 5 stars as I like a little more interaction with the staff, the food was all good snd the staff were efficient and friendly. Particular note to the costata which was very tasty.

Food was okay but waitress was so rude. We have been in Italy for 2 months and eaten out just about every day for either lunch or dinner and this was the worst waitress we have come across. We couldn't wait to leave

Great setting and all so promising. A delicious first course and then we waited an hour for our second course to appear. Clearly this had been forgotten about as staff weren't aware of the error until we explained. No apologies forthcoming. Arrangement for bill paying...More

We enjoyed lunch at this place on hot day comfortably cool right under the ledge. Nice variety of local food at reasonable prices.

Rude waitress with other staff acting in a similar manner. Crotto Ombra. Ghastly place. Don't bother with it. My friend and I had read about this restaurant on Tripadvisor and wanted to try it. We turned up on a Sunday evening at around 8.30pm. My...More
