This is a great little spot in Foster City to enjoy a wonderful lunch or dinner. I love eating outside during the summer, it is gorgeous.

My favorites are the Cheese Fondue,Veal Marsala, and Bread Pudding. As for wines, they have a nice list and the owner is always helpful in pairing the right wine with our meal.

Go hungry, you will be so full when you leave.

Went to this place last night based on the reviews found on CitySearch, and the fact that it is so close to our hotel. This restaurant is just lovely. Very understated. The owner/waiter was extremely friendly and helpful. He seemed to

We tried Trattoria Pasta Grotto, now named Chateau Ticino, based on rating we found on the internet. This is a hidden gem! Very elegant with extremely reasonable prices. Very interesting menu, all kinds of authentic dishes that you

I've been going to Trattoria Pasta Grotto for years and the owner recently changed the name to Chalet Ticino. People thought he only served pasta but his Osso Bucco is wonderful, as are other meat and fish entrees and his Swiss dishes are great. Sunday breakfast is also terrific. In the summer, you can sit outside and Alec, the owner, is so nice and helpful. Oh, and be sure and have his desserts! Price is reasonable and service is great.

Recently renamed from Tratorria Pasta Grotto to more accurately reflect the quality and type of meals offered, Chalet Ticino serves outstanding Swiss-Italian and Swiss-German dishes. A small but eclectic wine list compliments the superb dining experience. Whether it is a Veal dish, one of several Frittatas, or Swiss Mixed Grill, the food is excellent - without being over-priced.

I had been interested in trying Pasta Grotto since my friend told me they have fondue, and I love fondue. It is a Swiss-Italian restaurant and they have some Swiss specialties as well as pastas and meats. We ended up getting the fondue, which is either a cheese or beef fondue, that comes with soup or salad and "chocolate fondue". The fondue was a standard cheese fondue with bread, and some potato pancakes. It was fine. (You have to have at least 2 people order the fondue and I wasn't sure you could get the chocolate fondue otherwise). The Italian wedding soup was very good.

We ended up getting the option between the "chocolate fondue" and "warm berries", which was berries in a sauce with ice cream. It looked okay, but didn't sound too exciting to me. The "chocolate fondue" was an assortment of fruit pieces and a small dish of chocolate, that tasted like Hershey's chocolate sauce. I didn't end up eating the chocolate at all.

The owner is the waiter, I believe, and we got good service, but as we had a coupon (they have a connection from restaurant.com) I was a bit put off by his telling us to pay the tip based on the original amount.

All in all, it was good food, but I probably wouldn't get the fondue again. I'd try something else.

This is a great little restaurant that seems to be undiscovered. My friends and I went here for a Ladies Night Out and didn't have a reservation and thought for sure we would be shut out or have a long wait, but we were among the only ones there. However, the food is very good. The owner is from Switzerland and serves authentic food and could not be nicer. I had their Chocolate Fondue on Halloween night and it is served with fruit and it is so good. The cheese fondue is very yummy and romantic for sharing. I have had several pasta dishes here and the portions are big and delicious.
