“A serene place...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

Following our last visit (December 2012), we were happy to return to this idyllic village for which you'll have to climb a fairly steep hill. I'm echoing my positive initial review; this time, we didn't select the separate house, but went to the more comfortable room #1 in the main building. The choice of dishes for dinner is fairly small, but highly adequate, and features the regional "classics". Remarkable was the starter based on artichaut hearts, which will also be part of the upcoming Christmas menu.

Room Tip: Rooms are on 2 locations; the "garden house" may be quite cold in winter, which is not a p...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

This little pensione is located in wooded hills to the south of Lugano - a nice quiet and lovely location. You can walk on the road past the pensione to some very picturesque villages too. The attached ristorante has excellent food - both Swiss and Italian. Rooms are nothing fancy, but very clean.The place is run by Dalila and Domingus - very warm and friendly!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

The only thing that initially scared me off was the steep climb needed to reach Serena, but when you're there, everything is serene - as the title says. The meals are lovely, and the excellent wines of the Tamborini winery in nearby Lamone are offered. The accomodation is simple, but straightforward - and last but not least, the owners very helpful in guiding a scared guy like me way up the mountain!

Room Tip: If you're handicapped (but should not need a wheelchair), there is an apartment at ground level.
