Had a lovely late dinner here. Staff were very pleasant and we enjoyed choosing the ingredients for the food taken. We had pasta with fish ragu ... delicious. One of the more budget friendly places in Lugano.

I've been here dozens of times for lunch. There is always a great selection of freshly prepared local food, fruit juices, cakes etc. The fruit salad is a favourite of mine. It's good value too.

Lugano town is quite expensive. So when you search to have a meal somewhere and not to give all your money away, Manora is the best place. Self-service type restaurant with nice food and pleasant atmosphere.
