Trani Resturant

Great location, off the main stairs leading to the old city of Lugano. Tortellini and lasagna were very good. Atmosphere was quite and very pleasant. Would recommend this restaurant for a nice evening in Lugano.

Going on a regular basis this restaurant incorporates in every dish a slice of traditional and innovative cuisine. Definitely try the tuna tartar which is out of this world and top it off with the chocolate cake for dessert which will blow your mind away!

Great place! The restaurant is wonderful, the main room is a must to see. Great selections of wines (ask Francesco, the owner which has lots of good propositions in terms of price&quality). Try one of his tartare!!

Good Mediterranean cuisine and nice ambiance. Good wine choice. I really love and recommend this place. Consider the many stairs you have to do in order to reach it, in case of high heels or knee pains..

A nice and cozy place in Lugano. The food was great and the staff was very friendly. Can recommend the tuna. The price was a little bit expensive.

Very nice setting, warm welcome and promising menu ! But... Food is a bit tasteless. The carciofi (artichoke) risotto was overcooked and bland. Even with more salt and pepper. The wine list is nice but overall pricy. It's one of these experiences where you get out with mixed feelings: neither bad nor good. But somewhat disappointing!

Ate here just before Christmas. The restaurant was relatively quiet and service was on the whole good An aperitif of prosecco was served in wine glasses not flutes which was strange - I thought the move away from wide glasses for champagnes etc was to keep the fizz longer. This meant one glass which wasn't drunk immediately lost its fizz... More
