  • At the top station there is a sign that says that the GA (Generalabonnement) is valid. When arriving in Mileglia they, however, still charge you at 50% of the price...  more »
  • Brings me back to a recent review and concur that among the staff at the restaurant is there anyone who shouldn't be working here. In my turn, I found myself getting off with a waiter and a kitchen, which, regardless the first one in my presence (perhaps they took me for one "marrow" without notions of Italian), explained to the other how to recover part of the saddle of venison that is " served to customers, he said the most popular system in restaurants; certainly in those where he worked! Today I arrived on the deck where there were about thirty people and ordering a drink I had to wait 15 minutes. The arrival of the waiter asked if I would have had time to drink it before 12:30 (now cable car downhill), perhaps also due to the fact that you can order it took 15 minutes (arrival 11:56 ordered 12:11), feeling that if I passed the order ce have done it (said somewhat annoyed). This is not the first time he noticed some non-professionalism of the waiters in seeking orders; one table at a time and to order taken back to kitchen/bar to give the order, when normally the waiters are able to work on multiple orders at the same time or at least faster. In another case (indirect) intervention of the leader was at least undiplomatic having regard to its position. Maybe there staff is subjective depending on the client. Menu of the day almost always composed of the same dishes; on the quality I don't express myself since I hadn't eaten. For the staff of the cable car, maybe a young lady at the cashier would give something kind and gentle in addition, because men would not have that "savoir faire" necessary to the task. The return to self and the change of the staff perhaps would give a better picture of a restaurant that, inevitably, is the main attraction of a mountain that, besides the beautiful landscape, can give little else. Monte Lema, beautiful mountain of bel Malcantone, deserves better in terms of entertainment and it doesn't take much to get there, maybe just a bit of will and modesty.

  • Top of Malcantone
  • Breathtaking view of Lake Maggiore, Lake Lugano, France. There is a cable car that climbs from the Swiss side, Italian side there is a path that starts from the Rifugio Campiglio takes 1:15 ' with good legs. At the top you find a weather radar, the classical monument with cross and many wooden benches from which to enjoy the view, a little further down there is a refreshment bar with panoramic terrace and view over Switzerland (water is not cheap) and an analemmatic Sundial. The climb from the Italian side is challenging but very rewarding, if you love the excursions is a recommended place.

  • All those who write that from up here you can enjoy a splendid panorama in 360° and assign a rating of 5 stars have absolutely right. Nevertheless, I do not feel right. Check then a star because here you have installed a very ugly and huge construction dedicated to the Swiss national weather service. If this is the way to protect nature and the environment, then it is better to remain without weather forecast ...

  • Summit spectacular ... but the service at the restaurant leave want .... They have a new salt but enclose it and put you in a small room. Slow service. At the Summit there are paragliding lovers and are silent 👍, as for unmanned aircraft. Unpleasant and noisy. Not fit on Top where seeking contact with nature.
