“5 star family hospitality and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2011

We chose to stay here for two days while we visited Ticino and the area around Lugano, a 10 minute drive from Tesserete. We also chose to eat dinner at Ristorante Stazione the first night but it was so delicious that we came back from our outing in Lugano just to eat here a second night. They specialize in game but the veal, cannelloni, fish and beef were all excellent. The ambiance was comfortable and the Besomi family were the perfect hosts. As noted, they have about 9 rooms available for guests so it was a double pleasure to eat a great meal and then be able to walk upstairs to our very nicely appointed room. Our breakfast was served whenever we were ready and with two children among our party of 6, it was a little unpredictable. And, speaking of children, there was even a small playground on the grass adjacent to the restaurant and a very pleasant patio area for dinning or just to have a cup of coffee. We all admitted in our party that it was rare not to find something to suggest for an improvement but we can't think of a thing. The room, the food, the service and the setting were all 5 star.

“Good food, fantastic terrace for outside seating - They dont serve the GAZOSA TICINESE! A pity..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2011

The restaurant is located at the terminal of the bus station in Tesserete (Capriasca).
It’s definitely in the centre of the village.
They serve local plates, but also Italian ones. Very fine is the risotto, typical from Ticino.
The terrace with outside seating it’s incredibly nice in spring or summer.. a lot of people arrive there even for just a drink.
The only one pity is that they don’t serve the most typical drink of Ticino: the GAZOSA!
If you ask for a Gazosa they tell you they have the Elmer Citro… Terrible! The GAZOSA MANDARINO is not even available. It’s probably the only one restaurant not serving the Gazosa in Ticino. A pity!
