One day visit to Lugano

Revisited Lugano for the 3rd time, last on 1st May 2015. Unfortunately all shops were closed being a Public Holiday, so after the boat trip I headed for Ristorante Manora as i knew it was going to stay open. I opted for seafood mix, some salad and a glass of Rose` Doc wine. Very reasonable price... read more

The self service style restaurant offers a range of freshly/ready made food from pasta, pizza, steaks, seafood, desserts, fruit juices, etc. We stumbled upon this restaurant in the evening in Lugano (before we later learned it's a chain with Manor department store). We had an excellent freshly cooked pasta and a hot served freshly cooked burger steak. The price was... More

Found this place by accident after traipsing around looking for a late lunch at a reasonable price having been disappointed by the quality and price of meals at restaurants nearer Lake Lugano. The choice of food was wonderful, with freshly cooked pasta, self-service salads, bread, fruit, pastries, desserts and loads of other things available. Although busy, there were no queues... More

A fantastic top quality self service restaurant (always been there at lunch). Absolutely nothing to share with the usual plastic self service restaurants where you must queue up and choose something that stays behind a glass, where you know what is it only by reading the labels. Manora hits you as soon as you enter: fresh food, ready to be... More

Manor, a very popular department store has a buffet style restaurant. Because of the high volume the food is fresh and good. Probably the best selection in Lugano! Not a elegant setting, but a great place for a quick meal with good food.

I can conferm, what lucia R and Mallarda wrote. And furtheron, that everything: meat, fish, cake, salads, vergetables, pizza aso is prepared fresh on the place under your eyes and on your special desire for example a steak: mediam or ... as also the best pizza in Ticino. Nearly every day Manor-restaurant offers a Swiss or international speciality. As the... More

A good choice of food, places indoor and outdoor, a kid's place, many differet corners where you may have your beloved pasta, prepared with the sauce you like most. A quick service for a nice place, where you can sit with your family; even small children will be happy

Your budget will hurt no matter where you eat in Switzerland; however, Ristorante Manora can help relieve the anxiety of the high cost of food in Lugano. Portions are abundant (the soup is always excellent). Pizza is a good option and is of higher quality than your regular Swiss pizza. The cafeteria style of eating means your budget won't be... More
