“Lovely setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014

Restaurant is in the Principe Leopoldo Hotel overlooking the city. The grounds are beautiful and the hotel is outstanding. Dinner here is special. It is a very expensive restaurant, but the service and the food are worth the money for a special occasion.

“A luxurious dinner with wonderful wines”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014

Principe Lepoldo resturant is one of my favourite resturant in Switzerland, everything is at the right place, all details are under control and the dinner ( or lunch) is so sophisticated but taking care of taste that are simple and not "mixed up" as usually happens when some chefs want to amaze customers.
Wine selection is really impressive and also spirits, and in particular the italian grappa, are really the best.
Strongly suggested in particular if you want to spend a migic evening with your loved.

“Amazing view of Lugano”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2014

Came here for lunch and what a view it was! Really relaxing and calming atmosphere with lovely food, but the view it offered was very serene and picturesque. All in all was a good experience. The staff was very friendly and patient with us.
