We turned up as a family of 4 on a busy Saturday night. Despite having no reservation, the staff accommodated us quickly and without fuss. The quality of the food is outstanding. We loved the meal. The menu is extensive so take a little care and ask questions before ordering. Some of the starters are perfect for sharing, even amongst 4 people. Prices are a little expensive but not excessively so for the location. Give it a try and you won’t be disappointed!

This restaurant was recommended by a staff member from our hotel. We loved it (other than one dish -branzino fish, which was very bland). The food was good, the waiters very nice and attentive.
Their menu is only in Italian and there's one waiter there who's English is decent enough to make it painless...
Very good

Didn’t know where to go; we thought about going to that place under the arches but something told us to stop here and good we did it!

We had a Diavola pizza (16.50) it was nice; the octopus soup was quite good (17.50); the baccala (stockfish) alla mediterranea was so “tomatosy” (24.50) and to end a Pastiera (Neapolitan tart, 8.50) it was so industrial tasted…

The place has a very summery ambiance. A good place to have a meal, abondant portions and the best, professional and polite waiting service.

This unassuming restaurant on the shore of Lake Lugano was a very welcome find. The pissa was excellent and huge, my companions pasta dishes were delicious and the house wine was delicious. Acriss the road is Lake Lugano. Finally a meal with a view that is not a tourist trap!!

My family and I went for Easter to cantinetta caprese as i suggested we could enjoy some tasty food all together.
We have been several times before and it was always very good.
The place has a big room inside and an outdoor terrace which is great during the summer.
We ordered some mussels as appetizer (they were plump and sauce lovely) and octopus with potatoes (good), then as mains we took lamb (as it was on the daily menu, good but a bit dry, i expected more), some pasta (amazing but slightly too much al dente) and a fish (very good). We took some dessers which were good but did not blow me away this time except for the caprese which is always tasty and soft.
Overall a wonderful meal even though for the price we paid (very high) I would have expected more especially from the lamb.
Service was friendly and the atmosphere nice too.
