“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2013 via mobile

Amazingly good. The meal - delightful. The waiter - amazing. He carefully translated and guided our choices all of which were delicious. He even went across the square to get me Amaretto because they ran out. Don't pass up this beautiful spot in the main piazza.

“Ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2013 via mobile

We visited for a glass of wine and maybe a dinner. There were 5 types of white wine by the glass ALL of which were dry, and the menu was in Italian only so we didn't bother with food. A restaurant in a tourist area should have the menu in French and German at least, they must lose a lot of non-Italian speakers.

“People watching spot rather than real wine bar/restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2012 via mobile

I recommend to go there for aperitif rather than dinner, there are many other more authentic places for a meal. However this is a good spot for people watching on the main square of Lugano!

“What A Tartare!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2012

Probably the best steak tartare I have ever had! Add french fries and a good wine: it will make your day.
