We have eaten at La Tinera a number of times and have found the food to be very good and the prices to be moderate in comparison to other restaurants in the area. We have especially enjoyed lunch here. La Tinera is a bit difficult to find since it is on a very small street so it is best to obtain a map of the area so you do not wander around the central area of Lugano.

We tried this restaurant based on TA reviews and were very disappointed. This is not a family friendly restaurant. I really got the stink eye when I came in with my 7 and 1 year old. They do not have any high chairs or booster seats. There were no other children in the restaurant.
The food was decent, especially the minestrone soup.
Service was indifferent and very slow.
Typical high Swiss prices.

Excellent choice and fair vegetarian options. The liver is wonderful, wine drunk in traditional Ticino pottery. Fair prices and friendly staff make this a great choice in the center of Lugano.

La Tinera came well-recommended by other tripadvisor members, and lived up to its billing: cozy basement dining room, regional dishes on the menu, friendly waitstaff, not expensive (by Swiss standards) - and the meal (especially the polenta made with whole-grain corn) was simply good.
