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.

The pizza crust is thin and crispy and filled with cheese which was very good. I recommend the small portion more than the big one. The pasta was very good. Also I have tried the avocado with shrimps which was a good starter. The prices of this restaurant are good not very expensive. The waiters were friendly and welcome all... More

Enjoyed a lovely meal here. The staff were SO friendly! And the location is beautiful - on the edge of a square that seems to have hardly changed since the late 1800s. We chose pasta and salads rather than pizza and found everything tasty. Not the best ever but good and, for us, made better by the fact that prices... More

Pizza was decent. Not all fresh ingredients {canned mushrooms for example). Very good cheese toppings and a very wide selection of pizza topping combinations to satisfy everyone. The Greek salad was excellent. Most waiters speak English, French and German. Menus available in all three languages.

We came to this place because the restaurant we originally planned to go to was closed. This was an excellent alternative with nice outdoor seating. The gentleman who served us was very friendly and made excellent recommendations. He even prepared us something which was not on the menu tailored to meet our dietary requirements. The food had lots of flavour... More

For all people who love italian pizzas with very thin crust: this is the place to go! The pizzas are served on a oval wooden plate and are of a good size for a reasonable price.
