Good but not cheap

We had almost a 2 hour layover at Lugano on our way to Milan and this was the only restaurant that was open on New Year's day. We ordered the prosciutto pizza and the simple penne pasta with tomato sauce. The pizza was really good and memorable, the pasta simple but well prepared. The bread cover... read more

You would go there for the view and the atmosphere but necessarily for the food. However, after ordering a pizza, it came with a nice crust and lots of yummy cheese. It was actually EXCELLENT. One should also enjoy the lounge area with comfy sofa area. We would go there again, either before waiting for the train or after or... More

Was psoitively surprised with the selection on the menue, the efficiency of the staff and the quality of food. We walked past this restaurant many times before we stopped there for a meal. Its not the most inviting place but the quality and price is well woth a visit. The outside area gives some views over the lake as well.

I had been here a while back for lunch, which was terrible. I came back as I was waiting for a train. EXCELLENT service. Freshly baked pizza slices free with the glass of wine, attentive service (Marco), and the usual peanuts and crisps. Definitely a place I'd go to again to relax and wait for a train.

We were disappointed by the food and the service. It was slow, not very friendly and the food was expensive.

This is an OK spot for a simple lunch when in a hurry. Nothing great, nothing bad, just OK.

We were a bit taken aback when our friend, a local, took us to the Train Station for lunch, but the food was remarkably good and the prices were considerably less scandalous than the rest of Lugano. My spouse particularly enjoyed the "Rosti" she ordered.

We decided to go and half a last drink as we were waiting for the train. What we found was very unlike the traditional railroad station restaurant; this is a pleasant place, looking new and well kept. We ended having snacks as well as a drink, and the food was really tasty and good. We were actually seated on the... More

We had a wonderful time.. food was good, reasonably priced and the waiters were attentive. Had a relaxing time as we had a couple of hours wait before our train departure.

Station restaurants are not usually my kind of place, but this one is worth a try. It has a menu of local specialities and serves pizza from the wood stove but you also get a couple of meat, pasta and fish dishes as well as the selection of the day (usually recommendable) and a salad buffet. The atmosphere is surprisingly... More
