“best restaurant in Lugano”
Reviewed 17 April 2014 via mobile

Wonderful food, simple and always delicious, made with highest quality ingredients.
This restaurant is one of the few with character in Lugano, and it truly feels like being in Italy.
Definitely worth the 'climb'!
Well done!

“Perfect food, great service, extremely expensive”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

The food is fantastic, the service is great. However, the interior is not so cozy and the prices are extremely high.

He manage it perfectly and the food is excellent, the burrata ( mozzarella) the " pasta" and the fishes are all cooked in an interesting Toscana way.

“one of the best in the city”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

let's be honest. Food is NOT the reason you will travel to Switzerland. France, Italy, Belgium and Spain are the kings in the subject. So once you clarify this, there are good restaurants in many cities. NONE compare to the best of other countries but yoy can always find a nice restaurant with good food (I would stay away from swiss wine). This is one of those nice restaurants with good enough food to make is a smart choice when in Lugano
