We ate in this restaurant twice this weekend. We first tried the pizza, and it was delicious, which is why we returned the following day, when we had the Saffron Risotto with beef. The dish also tasted very good. The employees seemed a bit stressed at times, but they were friendly nevertheless and the service was quick.

I ate here many times. The pizza al tagliere is always the best. I would suggest to stay on pizzas and avoid the rest of the food because it is not on the same level. Staff always kind and attentive.

Found this on the main square of Lugano. Great Pizza. If you are interested in a quick pizza with a bottle of wine this is your place.

The food is just ok. We were in a party of four. Four different dishes and all were just ok. Risotto no flavor. Pasta no tasty. Meat ok but small portion. We expected much more.

This place is brilliant. It's in the Lugano town centre and is always busy. Service is good and of course the signature oval pizza is one of the best in this Italian part of Switzerland.

We went to this Restaurant after reading reviews and were certainly not disappointed. It is a very busy restaurant situated in the square and the staff coped well with the crowds and were always attentive to our needs. All our meals were good.
