La Sosta is owned by Nina Mathew - Branda, her husband Salvatore Branda and her father Christopher Mathew.
Both Nina and Salvatore are the chefs in the kitchen, while Nina's father Chris handles front of house.
The guest house has been made larger by adding on three larger and more luxurious rooms.
They still only offer tasting menus and seat exclusively for dinner. It is still fine dining Italian, as Salvatore is Italian (from Calabria) and had various experiences in kitchens in Italy and Switzerland including a few Michelin Star restaurants.
Nina did her training in Switzerland where you undergo a very intense three year apprenticeship where you are required to work and study simultaneously. She has had the pleasure of doing her training in two of the best five star luxury hotels in Lugano.
Nina and Salvatore subsequently met in Lugano, in the kitchen, and have been planing to open their own restaurant together for a few years. La Sosta happened to be their restaurant for so many reasons.
Gianni and Cristiana have been close to Nina and Salvatore since the beginning of the process and they are fortunate to have them as Friends.
