Excellent. Set menu, but staff can accommodate your wishes. Good selection of wines by the glass, no need to order by the bottle....try several. If lactose intolerant, several choices, from shrimp, beef, dried meat antipasto, etc. Best meal I has all week!!!!

Menus varies, but always good and well prepared. Great wine selection. In the center of town. Most of the time you need reservations. Friendy staff!

Excellent casual Italian food near the center of town. Recommended by the owners of our albergo and we found exactly as promised a limited menu of perfectly prepared dishes. My orecchiette with scallops in a saffron cream sauce was creative and I ate every bite. Extensive wine list for a small restaurant, which was arranged by countries and regions. Sit... More

My wife enjoyed the local lake fish, my pasta dish too al dente. Salads were the best we had though in Lugano. Nice bread selection.

This is a small, family owned Italian restaurant. Not many tables so reservations are a must. They have only a handful of starters and main courses, changed by day and season. A great selection of wines and knowledgeable waiters. my best advice is simply to talk to them about your favorite food and wine preferences and I'm confident that you'll... More

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
