Great food, they make and sell homemade pasta. Their tartare is wonderful. You can let the chef know, how hot you like it. There always is a full lunch menu with several choices and combinations. Seating is possible also outdoors. Best service and great atmosphere.

Although the restaurant is not in the city centre, it is absolutely worth going to this very cosy place - I got much more than I expected. Could very well be one of the best restaurants in Lugano, by just making simple food with a...More
