We came for the fish. And fish we got, very well prepared, very tasty and most enjoyable. The location is perfect, a bit hidden and very quiet. The ambience is nice, you sit comfortable and can enjoy your meal as should be. We recommend highly.

This restaurant is specialized in seafood and fish. Food and service are good, but I would not describe them as distinctively special. I liked the old fashioned atmosphere, and the location, close to the center but at the same time secluted, in a quasi- rural...More

Located near the center of Lugano, this "grotto" gives the impression to be in the middle of a forest. The speciality is definitively fish and sea food. I am always following the owner/chef's recommandation of the "fish" of the day.
