Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

How lucky we were this afternoon to discover this delicious restaurant in Gandria after a busy morning exploring Sentiero Dell’olivo and renting a small boat at “Rivabianca” near the Grand Hotel Villa Castagnola in Lugano. Debora kindly welcome us around 3.00 pm and gave us...the best news: Yes you can eat a late lunch! (Most of the restaurants here follow strict hours for lunch and the reopen at 7.00 pm). The food was delicious, especially the Antico pasta and the steak tartare with salad. The wine from the region was also excellent: Bravo Ristorante Antico!More

We were driving back to Menaggio from Lugano and decided to explore the area looking for a restaurant. If you can find parking, and find this place from the road, like we did, you are in luck. A wonderful meal with an amazing view.

After a boat trip to Gandria from Lugano we came to this restaurant for lunch. It was a beautiful sunny day so we landed on the terrace which has a gorgeous view. We enjoyed a nice lunch, amongst which sole with fresh artichokes accompanied by...an interesting white merlot. It was not a cheap lunch but definitely the most impressive one during our holiday. We walked back along the olivetree path to Lugano which is well worth the walk and views. All in all a beautiful day 😀.More

We were pleasantly surprised by this restaurant ,from the moment we walked in we were greeted by a lovely waiter who had a kind smile and was so welcoming ! We were mesmerised by the gorgeous of view of Lugano lake but opted to have...our dinner inside where a roaring fire created a cosy atmosphere We had the best lamb dish ever! it was cooked to perfection and the accompanying vegetables did not disappoint . The cocktails were superb and gelato as our choice of desert was a nice end to a perfect evening. Our special thanks to the waiter and the chef keep it up!!!!good job!!More

This was the only restaurant open on a Monday. We had rabbit and polenta. Big portions. Reasonable prices. Amateur service, but friendly. Lovely view. Simple decor. Ice cream to follow, not homemade. Tiramisu alcoholic: yum. Handy place for waiting for the boat back to Lugano...after a lovely walk along the Path of the olives.More

We had our lunch here, yesterday, and enjpyed a tender and tasty "osso buco" with tagliatelle. The veal osso buco was delicious and so were the tagliatelle. My wife had the tagliatelle Antico which were very good indeed. The venue is near the boat stop...and has a nice terrace overlooking the lake, Friendly staff and reasonable prices. This was our third time here and each time we had a very good experience, Bravi. Continuate cosi!!!More

A restaurant with a beautiful view on lugano lake. The dishes were well cooked, we took the caprese salad, lasagne and spaghetti with vongole. It’s a good place for a romantic diner

Breath taking views, authentic Italian cuisine, first class service. Not to be missed. Worth the trip out of Lugano, parking easy but a steep walk down to the village.

Simple classical Italian dishes, good products, tasty, effective service and smiling service and, of course, a beautiful terrace over the lake. Prices in the average. Nothing extraordinary but no bad surprise, good value.

The view is amazing and, after all the stairs, it is just a perfect location to chill a bit before returning to Lugano. The owners are very friendly and easy to talk to. They made us feel at home since when we stepped in and...the service is outstanding. If you go to Gandria, this is the place where to stop by.More

We reserved a table on the off-chance and having left it quite late, were unable to have a table on the balcony. However, we did have the next best thing which was a table looking over the balcony. The menu had something for everyone. If...you are looking for pizza, then this is not the place for you. I would recommend one of the pasta dishes as the ones we tried were excellent. Value was in line with usual Swiss prices. Staff were friendly and very patient both with our non-existant Italian and with some of our party wishing to mix and match the menu choices.More
