An elegant restaurant, a vibrant steakhouse, an exquisite wine bar and a luxury cocktail lounge make of CianiLugano an experience bound to enthral your senses. In the very heart of the city, between the Palazzo dei Congressi and the lakefront, a pleasant atmosphere welcomes you to taste the excellence of our cuisine and treat yourself by the pleasure of an impeccable service. In addition to the most classic à la carte menu, prepared in our open-plan kitchen and grill isle, CianiLugano also offers tasting menus, artisan pastries served by our cafeteria, tasty snacks, pre and after-dinner refreshments, and takeaway picnic baskets to be enjoyed in the park nearby. An event calendar full of culture and themed nights also featuring live music and comedy shows makes our venue an evergreen favourite for nightlife lovers who want to try new things without renouncing quality and the ease of a homely atmosphere. Thanks to a recent refurbishing, CianiLugano can now offer a winehouse, a lounge bar, an art gallery and a terrace overlooking the park which can accommodate up to 300 indoor seats. We also work in close partnership with the Palazzo dei Congressi to provide additional support for bigger events.
