Nice trattoria !

Really nice place in the middle of the city .. Looks like a typical Italian place .. Nothing Swiss ... Fresh and well cooked primis and secondis, Good service, and for a Central Lugano place prices are ok!

This is a very good restaurant that is all the way up there among the 5 best in Lugano. Very cozy place with a friendly atmosphere. Great food. Usually not a lot to choose from, but it's all great so don't worry. Just go for it. They have a strong wine cellar with great wines at reasonable prices.

Very cosmopolitan customers gather here alongside long tables, sharing outstanding ticino wines, pancetta, salume, formaggini and miscellaneous local dishes cooked to perfection and all that in a friendly and cosy atmosphere: top !

We walked by this restaurant several times during our stay in Lugano and it was always nearly full. On the last day of our visit, we stopped in for lunch and enjoyed a delicious lunch of skewered veal with mashed potatoes and pesto filled gnocchi in tomato sauce. The waiter recommended appropriate and delicious wines for each dish. The menu,... More

We have been eating with my husband regularly at Bottegone since 2011, from the first time we visited to our last visit a few days ago, I can only sing the praises of this absolute gem of a place. The menu is never the same, it changes with the seasons and the fresh ingredients available.... And the staff are absolutely... More

Food was medium, recomended wine was not good for such price. Finally, for the next evening, I prefered to spend 15 minutes and go to the restaurant in Italy )))

I have been often to the "Bottegone del Vino" (roughly, "the wine store"), with clients, friends, or visitors. The concept of this restaurant is similar to the wineries you find in Tuscany, where local folk go to taste wine and eat a few dishes that are meant to "accompany" the wine. The place is rather small, with a few 2-4... More

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.
