I'm eating at this lovely place quite regularly during my stay in Lugano. Never been disappointed. Food and service are perfect. Can't wait to be back.

We stayed here for an apero. The Gin Tonic was not great. The cheese and nuts were ok. The architecture of the place is gorgeous. The furniture need replacement and the floor could be a bit cleaner.

Budget varies, some items on the menu can be expensive but, well the location is exclusive, yet you can also find sandwiches and salads which are delicious at a very reasonable price. Had the most amazing thai creme brule there. Parking is... More
