Since Italy is around 20 miles from Andermatt across the mountains, there is a recognizable Italian influence on the menus of many restaurants.


A short walk from The Chedi, this excellent Italian restaurant with a chic modern décor is a firm favorite among skiers, so it is often crowded and reservations are essential. Try the ravioli stuffed with rabbit, the tagliatelle with a wild boar/Chianti sauce, and the saltimbocca pork served with risotto.

Gotthardstrasse 137, Andermatt. Tel. (41) 41-887-0303.


Stylish but relaxed, this popular restaurant offers an appealingly eclectic menu that ranges from falafel to shrimp with lemon risotto. Children are welcome at this family-friendly spot, and the menu features many dishes intended to appeal to a younger generation.

Gotthardstrasse 91, Andermatt. Tel. (41) 41-887-0176.

Restaurant Baschi

On a day when the weather precludes skiing, or if you just want a break from the slopes, this restaurant makes for a satisfying day trip. In Geschinen, 50 minutes by train from Andermatt, it is the place to come for a classic Swiss raclette. Heated over a wood fire, the cheese has a delicious smoky taste.

Wiler 1, Geschinen. 
Tel. (41) 27-973-2000.
