“One of the best meals with rabbit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

This was one of the best meals we've had with a wonderfully prepared rabbit. The first course with duck liver was not so successfuly, some were under done, the others crispy. Unfortunately we had to wait much too long for our deserts, I think a third waiter would improve the service, they were much hurried.

“The restaurant in Ticino”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Was yesterday evening for dinner. Ambience very stylish and the waiters were very nice when welcoming. The choice of the starters basically follows the season but I can advise the salmon of the house which is excellent. We were offered ouf ot the menu a wild turbot from Bretagne @ the Mediterranean style with olive oil from tuscany and asparagus. Believe me when I tell you that what we experienced I never was able to have in the best italian and french restaurants I visited so far: just gorgeous. The dinner was delighted with a magnificent bottle of Tignanello 2008. At the end we complimented the chef Lorenzo Albrici for his cuisine where you can refind the real values of a blend between italian and french cuisine. Hopefully Micheline finds the bravery to give him a second very much deserved star. Cheers, FP

“Best place in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012 via mobile

there's no doubt. Lorenzo deserves the étoile Michelin he got many years ago. The right place for a dinner for two.

“Enjoy it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012

It is quite expensive, but very well worth it.
It's number one in Bellinzona: high-class.
Suitable if you want enjoy a refined dinner and relax for a few hours. If you are in a hurry, is better you go next time.
There is a superb choice of wines and for cooking only fresh, seasonal and first-choice ingredients are used.
Qualified staff, that is very kind and always ready to suggest you.
