I was a return client of this restaurant, was always pleased BUT I guess something had changed (new patrons?). Quality of food lowered, service long and unprofessional (1 hour and 40 minutes waiting time in an almost empty restaurant), wine on the wine list not available. Total disappointment. Definitely my last visit at La cucina di Elsa: stay away!

We go there regularly. Definitely a place to visit in Lugano. Apart the very nice owners, the food is beyond any discussion and supported by a great vine selection! Ask the owner, he will select a nice surprise for you, even if you are a Wine-Expert!
