“Simply Amazing!”
Reviewed June 6, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I travel frequently to ft Lauderdale and il lugano is our favorite. They have the most attentive customer service you will find anywhere in Fort Lauderdale.

We make sure to always stop into da Campo. The pulled mozzarella is made table side and guaranteed to have your palette singing. PLEASE visit Lindsey at the bar. She is the quintessential bartender! She makes the most amazing cocktails and her customer service is unrivaled. She is the main reason we keep returning to this beautiful hotel.
Try to get an Intracostal view. It is stunning and we enjoy watching the boats go by. The decor is very chic and relaxing...The rooms are always clean and spacious.
Make sure you book a stay immediately... I know I will.

Stayed May 2014

For the past three years my fiancé and I have stayed at the Il Lugano Hotel to celebrate his birthday. This past Memorial Day we had the opportunity to stay at the hotel and once again everything was perfect.......from the cleanliness of the room to friendly staff. We especially would like to thank Sheila Nolan for going above and beyond to make our experience perfect.

We look forward to many more perfect vacations there!

From the minute the bell boy opened the car door to our check-out the next day we received exceptional service. We only stayed one night before going to Miami and wish our entire stay would have been at this hotel. Room with inter-costal view, balcony, ceiling fan above bed (hubby loved this), kitchenette, etc. All was AMAZING! Hubby kept asking me if I was sure I paid what I did for the room! Even though it was not directly on the beach like others it was well worth the price. We will be back!

I travel frequently to Ft. Lauderdale for business and staying at II Lugano is my highlight. They really have amazing customer service and you really feel at home. For the price you get to stay at an amazing place with the most comfortable beds and fabulous ceiling fan. The view of the inter coastal is breathtaking.

Da Campo Osteria is the in house restaurant with the most delicious food prepared by Chef Ray! Love how he interacts with the guests. My favorite is the spaghetti and meatballs and the White Chocolate bread pudding. Lio is always very professional and makes sure your experience is pleasant. Jen is doing a wonderful job at the bar very entertaining, always personable with a smile on her face.

Room Tip: Inter-coastal view!

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on our beautiful hotel and fantastic restaurant. I also believe that the only thing that surpasses our gorgeous views, excellent guest service is the offering that Da Campo Osteria, our restaurant has proven. We also believe that Lio, Chef Ray and Jen are culinary stars.

Please come back and visit us very soon again.

We stayed here for eight days and found the hotel to be a real find on the intracoastal in the heart beat of fabulous fort lauderdale. Nice spacious suites with balconies that overlook the intracoastal waterways and the ocean. The staff was there to fill any of your desires that need to be filled. The restaurant food is to die for, we loved chef Ramond and Sergio and all of the staff at the restaurant and Hotel. We are looking forward to returning for a longer vacation. Don't miss staying at this Jewel of a Hotel!!!

Room Tip: We stayed on the intracoastal but the ocean side is great too!

The happy hour was an amazing value with delicious tapas and creative cocktails. Lindsey the bartender was very gracious and offered invaluable local travel advice. Pool was well kept with fresh towels and cabanas. The rooms were clean and modern. The loungey outdoor spaces were awesome for watching the sunset.

I have visited the hotel many times and always have a great experience. First I am always greeted by Lio, the restaurant manager. He always greats me with his charm and elegance. Jennifer, who works in the restaurant and lobby bar, is always smiling and goes over and above to not only me, but all the guests that come in.
On one rainy Saturday, I had lunch there. The Chef, Ray, was extremely accommodating, as I am such a picky eater. He made me a club sandwich with Pesto instead of mayo or mustard. It was outstanding. On that particular day there was a one year old's birthday lunch with 3 couples and their small children. Judith was their server. She made the whole experience wonderful for the families as she not only served them, she watched the little ones. Cuddos to her!
Then a family brought their daughter after her first Communion. Jennifer served them and offered them the Table Side fresh Mozzerella, again Ray impressed.
Thats what is so great about going there.....very personable experience.
2 weeks ago we gave a friend a small surprise party...not only did Jennifer and Lio organize it, Ray made the Table Side Mozzerella, but this time he shaped the Mozzerella into the shape of 60, for Mike's birthday.....
Can't say too much more but, even the valet guys are also great.
Wonderful for a Boutique Hotel!
