“Something special in Lugano”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

Very good and personal service: attentive and good recommendations of the day's specials. The fish tempura for starters was excellent and the main dish of fish was superb. Churros for dessert makes you long for Spain. Good wine recommendation. Good atmosphere and very nice surroundings. Worth a visit for a special occasion.

“Good but not cheap. ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014 via mobile

Booked on same day. Found a table for two. Spent 105 euro for two people eating one antipasti, one plate of pasta and one hamburger. Plus one aperitivo and two glass of wine and water. The plates were good. Size is good. Not huge but enough to fill you up. Service was a bit slow to bring second round of plates.

“Fine dining with a ... twist”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014 via mobile

We were happy with the lovely elegant ambience, very formal, serious, impeccable.

Food was absolutely top draw, fillet of branzino was perfectly prepared, tuna cubes cooked to perfection.

The only downside was the presence of a too animated waiter, who ruins a bit the otherwise really perfect experience. Maybe for some he could be funny and direct, we found him too intrusive and not fitting with the rest.

Piatti del giorno (dish of the day) were outstanding. Wine from Felluga one of the best. Great service, wonderful view. I'll definitely eat here again!!
