Canvetto Luganese is a social enterprise held by the Diamante Foundation.

I love this place. The food, service and artwork on the walls. I would highly recommend it. For dinner I think you need a reservation.

Cute. Historical place in Lugano (the city wanted to build a lucrative building on this site but the population voted against it - and won!). Nice project with disable people working on the site: kitchen, service, management etc.. Excellent in the Summertime.
