wow really good, i work in the restaurant business and this is an excellent and sincere place. some of the well choosen wine are offered from a magnum- cool and unusual.
good food more italian artisan than swiss, it was bussy when i went but they still managed to fit me in, proper chefs in kitchen and professional wait staff, they are on the right course.

We came on a relatively slow Saturday night with no reservation. Service was very friendly, they catered to our 2 1/2 year old with humour, patience, a small plate of pasta and an extra helping of chocolate mousse! My orrechiette were original & fabulous, the tuna wonderful and the Sicilian wine excellent for an open bottle selection. 134 chf total incl. drinks, desserts and coffee - not cheap, but for this country not overpriced. Highly recommended!

We have been visiting Lugano to work for 3 years, and Osteria Del Portico is our favorite restaurant for a enjoyable special lunch or dinner. Over the years we have come to appreciate the warm hospitality and lovely dishes, and have spent many evenings enjoying local wines next to the oldest building in Lugano. Be sure to try the grapefruit and red orange sorbets!

I was last in Lugano three years ago - and enjoyed the food and service here very much. it's still good - and for those who don't speak Italian, there's a menu in English. Very good pasta dishes and more adventurous (and expensive) choices should you want them. Well worth visiting.

We arrived at 1:30pm - yes, a little later than usual for lunchtime. But the restaurant was anything but full. It took 25min (!) for us to get a drink, another 15min to be able to order food. Our choice was not available anymore which is ok as they might buy it daily). We ordered coffee. It did only arrive after we asked for it three times. No good choice. We can't understand how this good rating comes about.
