Half formal atmosphere, you do not go there just for a quick meal, its more a place to enjoy very good cooked food which is presented nicely and with care.

We had a wedding dinner there (which was delicious) and decided to come back there after 5 eyars for the anniversary dinner. Everything was great. The food is excellent, the service is seamless, the chef is friendly, you can't ask for more. One of the best places in Ticino for special occasions. I don't want to talk about prices. This... More

It's a place very old fashioned and stilish : ideal also for a romantic evening. As for food quality, almost everithing is perfect, but wild game foods ( in the right season) are a delight for the taste buds.

This was one of the best meals we've had with a wonderfully prepared rabbit. The first course with duck liver was not so successfuly, some were under done, the others crispy. Unfortunately we had to wait much too long for our deserts, I think a third waiter would improve the service, they were much hurried.

The choice of the starters basically follows the season but I can advise the salmon of the house which is excellent. We were offered ouf ot the menu a wild turbot from Bretagne @ the Mediterranean style with olive oil from tuscany and asparagus.... More

there's no doubt. Lorenzo deserves the étoile Michelin he got many years ago. The right place for a dinner for two.

It is quite expensive, but very well worth it. It's number one in Bellinzona: high-class. Suitable if you want enjoy a refined dinner and relax for a few hours. If you are in a hurry, is better you go next time. There is a superb choice of wines and for cooking only fresh, seasonal and first-choice ingredients are used. Qualified... More

Can't agree with the previous post. Lorenzo Albrici is a former Philippe Rochat disciple and very talented young chef. His cuisine is fine and while presentation stays simple, the wonderful tastes and scents are the result of the perfect selection of fresh local products and his natural skill to cook them to perfection. He deserves more than his current 16... More
