“A pleasant surprise”
Reviewed September 28, 2011

We decided to go and half a last drink as we were waiting for the train. What we found was very unlike the traditional railroad station restaurant; this is a pleasant place, looking new and well kept. We ended having snacks as well as a drink, and the food was really tasty and good. We were actually seated on the outdoor terrace, roofed and lto a large extent glassed in for more comfort and the view across the bay, the lake, the town and the surrounding steep wooded hills was magnificent. This is a place to come to even if don't have to catch a train. As the train station sits up a steep slope from the old town center, the walk up to it - you can almost call it a climb - is short but also pretty steep. However, you can get up there on the small cog wheel train that commutes between the station and a small square down town - for a fee, of course.

“Surprisingly great place!”
Reviewed April 9, 2011

We had a wonderful time.. food was good, reasonably priced and the waiters were attentive. Had a relaxing time as we had a couple of hours wait before our train departure.

“Surprisingly good fare at train station restaurant in Lugano”
Reviewed November 20, 2010

Station restaurants are not usually my kind of place, but this one is worth a try. It has a menu of local specialities and serves pizza from the wood stove but you also get a couple of meat, pasta and fish dishes as well as the selection of the day (usually recommendable) and a salad buffet. The atmosphere is surprisingly relaxed, but food is served quickly and efficiently.
I had cod in home made tomato sauce served with boiled potatoes - a real *sitting in your socks at the kitchen-table eating* kind of dish you really start missing when you have been travelling for a while, and certainly not what you would usually get at a train station restaurant.
