Near Badrutt’s Palace hotel is pizzeria Chesa Veglia located, one of the restaurants of Badrutt’s Palace. Chesa Veglia is the hotel’s pizza restaurant.

Dogs are welcome. Usually served in 2 shifts, we are not a fan of this, but we could make reservations whenever we wanted.

Chesa Veglia Building

It is almost always pleasantly busy in this restaurant, so book early, especially in winter.


The menu is extensive and it’s not just pizza.

As starter takes Cees Minestrone soup. Delicious Italian vegetable soup. Broth is very tasty and the vegetables are al dente. A very tasty soup.

Thomas takes salad Eta, a green salad with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. We drink a glass of Chianti Classico.

As main course Cees takes pizza Dama Bianca, a pizza with mozzarella, truffle and olive oil. According to the restaurant’s website, the best pizza in St. Moritz. In my opinion this is the best pizza in Switzerland. I have never eaten such a delicious pizza. The pizza is richly sprinkled with truffle. I drink a Pinot Noir with this. Earthy flavors with earthy flavors. Chesa Veglia is known for the pizza Dama Bianca. For anyone visiting Sankt Moritz, this is a must eat. You don’t know what you taste.

Best pizza ever eaten.

Thomas takes a classic vegetarian pizza. Properly topped with vegetables. Very tasteful.

The pizza and appetizer are quite filling. We don’t take dessert. We do get a large plate with friandises with the delicious coffee and espresso.

Chesa Veglia


The building is about 350 years old and was one of the first farms in St. Moritz. Below the cattle, above the house where they lived. After that, the house was converted into the first pizzeria in St. Moritz and it still has that function. We got postcards from 1930, when it became a pizzeria. The interior of that time has been copied. Same kind of tablecloths, same kind of chairs. Cool!

There are several floors where guests can eat. The interior consists of a lot of wood.

The service is good. It’s not formal, just a little distant until you break the ice. At the end of the evening we had a nice conversation with the host and hostess. Respect that they have to go up and down so many stairs all night.

No lie, I ate the best pizza ever here. This is a must visit when you are one week in St. Moritz. The prices are no different than in the other restaurants. Take the pizza Dama Bianca here, you don’t know what you taste. Not an “ordinary” pizza price, but that’s understandable because of the ingredients.
