Sat outside under the canopy / tent. Good weather but the covering made it seem a bit dark even though it was only 7 pm. Menu consists of about 5 mains that are written on a chalk board. The waiter came by and gave us the rundown in good English, even though we had a native speaker with us. The... More

This is a good local restaurant with real traditional food. The only problem is there is only one server who understood English. Since their menu was written on a blackboard in Italian, we could not even try to guess what they had that evening. However, the food was delicious and we liked very much. If you want to have a...

We go often for lunch with my husband and friends. No kids place. Good wine, short but selected menu. Daily changes, so you can find always something new. Season dishes and Italian mixed with Ticino food. Big portions, professional staff. Enjoy the terrace outside if it's a nice day. When it's rain it is fun to stay inside and enjoy... More

At the first sight, the restaurant looked very nice: plenty of prestigious wine bottles, few tables, formally-dressed waiters and a very small daily menu. I was very impatient to try this restaurant. However, the following issues led to my utmost disappointment: - Except for one, the waiters were rude and inappropriate. We seemed to bother them. As an example: some... More

This is a wine bar offering a huge variety of wines from all over the world. But they also offer a few plates which change every day. The food is outstanding and quite cheap while the prices for the choice of mostly exclusive wines rather on the high side. If you are a couple, you risk to sit with some... More

We have eaten here several times. Very elegant winebar, relaxed and helpfull staff and last but not least, a tasty kitchen. Many wines by the glass. We had an excellent pasta del Giorno at 22 Swiss franc. We strongly recommend this resto ! Don't forget to make a reservation, the resto isn't big.....

I was in Lugano for as a reviewer for a program at the University, and wanted a serious meal before leaving. This small restaurant is authentic, the food delicious, and it had a great wine selection with a gracious staff. The restaurant created a great finish after hectic scientific discussions. The majestic scenery of Lugano and this restaurant will certainly... More
