Was yesterday evening for dinner. Ambience very stylish and the waiters were very nice when welcoming. The choice of the starters basically follows the season but I can advise the salmon of the house which is excellent. We were offered ouf ot the menu a wild turbot from Bretagne @ the Mediterranean style with olive oil from tuscany and asparagus. Believe me when I tell you that what we experienced I never was able to have in the best italian and french restaurants I visited so far: just gorgeous. The dinner was delighted with a magnificent bottle of Tignanello 2008. At the end we complimented the chef Lorenzo Albrici for his cuisine where you can refind the real values of a blend between italian and french cuisine. Hopefully Micheline finds the bravery to give him a second very much deserved star. Cheers, FP

there's no doubt. Lorenzo deserves the étoile Michelin he got many years ago. The right place for a dinner for two.

It is quite expensive, but very well worth it.
It's number one in Bellinzona: high-class.
Suitable if you want enjoy a refined dinner and relax for a few hours. If you are in a hurry, is better you go next time.
There is a superb choice of wines and for cooking only fresh, seasonal and first-choice ingredients are used.
Qualified staff, that is very kind and always ready to suggest you.

Can't agree with the previous post. Lorenzo Albrici is a former Philippe Rochat disciple and very talented young chef. His cuisine is fine and while presentation stays simple, the wonderful tastes and scents are the result of the perfect selection of fresh local products and his natural skill to cook them to perfection.

He deserves more than his current 16 pts Gault Millau and the price of his menus remains reasonable in comparison to other gourmet restaurants in the region.
