The food is very good. Parking is horrible although they park for you if necessary. Good meat and fish dishes. Staff is fantastic and atmosphere good.

Thank Phyllis P

If you like pasta and steak like mama used to cook (assuming you had a skilled Tuscan mama), This is the place for you. The fresh artichoke salad and the roasted Roman artichokes are both a revelation, and just ask the owner, Matteo, for whatever is the best for the day, and he will tell you. The fish is so nice, with fresh spinach and expertly roasted potatoes. The chocolate cake and the Mille Feuille are out of this world. Very Expensive and worth it.

I very recomend this restaurant but You have to take care about You wallet:) It is quite expensive because it is Switzerland.
I ate there the best fiorentina steak outside the Italy but it costs 180CHF, but it is worth its money.

The service is excellent. and it is worth to go there.

I really recomend it as best Tuscany restaurant in Switzerland Ticino area.

My family and I visited this wonderful establishment last Saturday. The place is beautiful, dining under the stars, the service very attentive and helpful and the food divine. Probably the best restaurant in Lugano!

We are vegetarian and they were v. Helpful even creating off the menu dishes for my vegan father.

The restaurant is one of the few (with Bottegone del vino) that I would recommend in Lugano. Great food and good wine list, decent service. Do not miss for dessert the homemade "millefoglie" and "cantucci" with vin santo.
