We went for a late lunch and were positively surprised about the friendly and efficient service. The spaghetti were excellent. Cooked to perfection the " al dente way " we don't get often back home. We'll be back.

We actually ran into the Osteria Odeon by accident and then stayed because we liked the look of it and the things we saw on the plates of the customers. It is small, maybe seats a bit more than 20, but that's part of the...More

Definitely worth a try! Small menue but fresh products and freshly prepared meals together with the friendly service make a difference compared to the usual tourist spots in Lugano. Try the Cevapcici and/or Cordon Bleu although everything is tasty.
