Quite disappointed comparing this restaurant next to a round about, railways, main road Milano-Bellinzona and HIGHWAY all together. Few meters from Bissone public beach...

We had a quick lunch stop here on the way to Lugano. Food was good, but pricey for what it is. Service was quick.

La Palma is a great restaurant: I go there on a regular basis and it never fails to deliver amazing food. Pizza is great as well and the view of the lake is the best in town. Friendly staff.

Get table outside in the summer, and it is better to book. The service is a bit quick, otherwise huge portions, good waiters, and in general worth going to.

The location is perfect and the views over the Lake of Lugano magnificent. So, if possible try to get a table outside, from where you can fully enjoy that. The menu offers a wide variety of mostly Italian dishes with, of course, a large selection...More
