I have been in this restaurant for business lunch with some colleagues. Although the service is a little bit too slow (the restaurant was almost full at lunch time) the food is of good quality. We had pizzas and some pasta.

Every year around Christmas time I meet up with a friend in Lugano. This year we decided to try this place. We met up on a Wednesday for lunch and the restaurant was busy but fortunately had one table left. Patrons looked primarily like local professionals on lunch break and only a handful of tourists. We found the atmosphere cozy,... More

This restaurant serves good wood-fired pizzas. They also play tricks on tourists to get them to pay a lot for wine. We asked repeatedly for the house wine which is a chardonnay. They brought us a bottle of chardonnay. When we got the bill we found they had given us a 33 franc bottle. It cost 77francs for two pizzas,... More

I have been here a couple of times. The first time the tagliata (beef steak) was really excellent. And the grilled vegetables were also excellent. The second time, the steak was good but not excellent. In any case, this a pleasant large restaurant located in a less crowded part of the Lugano center. I really like the outside seating when...

Searching for Italian food, this is a great option. This restaurant has a menu for the season and one for the all year. One of the best risotto that I have tasted.

In general Lugano is an expensive city but this place has the best relation quality - price. Pizzas around 17 CHF and beer around 6. Summarising: a very appropriate place to have dinner!

Been here this evening, food, service and price all excellent! The pizza was delicious and spaghetti bolognaise was too. Rather apprehensive about cost, but in comparison to other restaurants we felt it to be reasonable. Would go again definitely!
