When you enter the restaurant, you really feel welcome. They speak italien, french, english, ... so you really feel like home. Also, they're very discrete.

About the food, we were delighted.They brought us (for free) several appetizers that were so tasty.Then I had a griled salmon with green cury sauce and it was absolutly wonderful. The taste was very inventive. The presentation was also very much appealing.

In the end, the price was very low considering the meal we had and the surrounding.
If you're in Lugano, this is definitly THE place to eat. We'll be back.

Elegant, relaxed, fine dining, excellent service and beautifully presented dishes. Michelin star quality, but this comes at Michelin star cost!
We understand that this restaurant is closing at the end of 2011 and moving to a country house environment in Valombroso.
