Highly recommended, food choice seems limited to a few choices per day but all are fabulous. Staff were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The pasta with octopus was stunning as was the swordfish. Beware the bruschetta - the portion size is huge and sufficient for at least two ! Wine selection was very impressive, the recommended local merlot a perfect partner.... More

Limited menu but very good food. We went for lunch without reservation and we were immediately seated. Staff was friendly, we didn't have a dessert but the lunch was great, compared to Zurich very cheap.

This was the second time I had gone to this restaurant. Again we just trusted the services recommendation of the day. The food again was very good, even thought the starter was a bit too much and heavy for our likings (duck... something). As mentioned, the food was very good and it's always nice to go with the services recommendations... More

Restaurant serves excellent food, good quality and reasonable prices. Very pleasant even if noisy and boisterous especially at lunch time. But really enjoyable and you can meet nice people as they have a large table where everyone can sit together. Convivial

It has a simple kitchen, little choice, the proposal, however, is always pleasant, for example cheeses of the pastures of Ticino, dried meat,carne secca dei Grigioni o Bresaola della Valtellina, very interesting is the choice of fine wines from Ticino, excellent Merlot, is a restaurant where it's easy to make friends, the staff is professional but friendly, in short, you...

What a nice way to end a long day in Lugano! An ideal restaurant for a good business dinner which offers a wide selection of wine to choose from. Service was excellent, food was exquisite, dessert was just superb! I appreciated a plate of italian delicacies offered on the house while waiting for the primo piatto. The delicacies go down...

We visit Lugano three to four times per year and it's pretty much mandatory now for us to drink and dine at Bottegone. The menu, although limited, usually has something each of us likes, the wine is fabulous, and the atmosphere convivial. It's popular with visitors and locals alike. At lunchtime, tables are quickly filled, so if you don't have... More

This place has unique character which I personally love. The menu is a daily menu written on a chalk board. 3-4 dishes, some meat some pasta. We had excellent veal on skewer with some steamed vegetables and salami raviolu in sage and butter sauce that were excellent but a little spicy. The service is good and not flattering. Do not...

Service very friendly. Food excellent, good value for money. And they speak English explaining the menu which is great. We had a bottle of local wine (from Ticino) following the chef suggestion For desserts we had a cheese plate with excellent choice of cheeses. Do not miss it when in Lugano .
