The pasta we had at Pasta e Pesto was fantastic. We had just left Italy and were so very surprised when we found this great restaurant in Lugano. We liked it so much that we went two nights in a row!

Six, 4 adults and two children, had a lunch of pasta and a glass of wine. My wife and I had ravioli, filled with cheese and pancetta, in a pesto sauce. A very healthy portion and quite delicious. No frills, just pasta and a glass of red wine for each. My daughter and her husband enjoyed their pasta as well. The kids just eat plain pasta, no sauce. Sometimes they are picky but they did eat all their portions.

We found this restaurant thanks to Trip Advisor. When we stopped to take a look prior to lunchtime, we were greeted in front and given an explanation and tour. We returned for lunch, and enjoyed some of the best pasta we've ever had. The format is simple; pick your fresh pasta, fresh sauce, wine or soft drink and after lunch Nespresso. Wait a couple of minutes, and then enjoy some of the freshest, tastiest pasta you've ever had. The format resembles fast-food, but the quality of the food surpasses the some of best full service restaurants.

This is a great pasta restaurant. The pasta is made fresh. You can choose from a variety of pastas and a variety of sauces. Unfortunately, they had run out of some of the more popular pastas. Nevertheless, there was enough to choose from. The food was tasty, the service was friendly and the restaurant was very clean. You can eat inside or outside. You place your order, are given a bleeper and collect your food from the counter when the bleeper vibrates. It was quite expensive though - 48 francs for 4 pastas and 2 small bottles of water. The restaurant closes at 6pm so is not really suitable for dinner.
