my favourite lunch spot in lugano. the wine available by the glass is limitless in it's variety. the appetizers and first courses are made to perfection with flavour and delicacy. polite service. difficult if you don't speak italian or want a menu. check out the clocks on the wall - always makes me laugh.

Thoroughly enjoyable evening with friends. Pluses: great bruschetta; nice choice of Italian and Ticino wines at reasonable prices; classic Italian food good overall; quick walk from many of the central hotels. Minuses: not a huge restaurant, can be tricky area to find a parking place.

We went here for lunch- the service was good and we got to sit outside and enjoy a bit of the sunshine. The menu was limited- 1 salad, 1 pasta and 1 meat dish. We got a shrimp pasta which was good but not great. I would go here to enjoy a nice glass of wine but not for another... More

What you see is what you get - superb local fare (lashings of steak tartare, truffles, meats, cheeses and veal) washed down with excellent local & Italian wines, with very friendly service. There is space for outdoor seating to watch the world go buy in summer. You can't book and you may be sat next to another group (big long... More

We went, then went back again! We had a great English speaking waiter who really seemed to enjoy our enthusiasm for trying some local wines and he came up with great recommendations. The extensive wine list (almost everything is available by the glass) almost eclipses the food, but this was also very good, especially the canapes which arrive with your... More

We went for lunch. Reservations are not required for lunch but highly encouraged for dinner as the place is small and usually packed. The atmosphere comes close to a bistro but with an Italian touch and a couple of waiters swirling around. White table-cloth on long tables that you share with other diners gives the restaurant the right mix between... More
