My husband and I had a Groupon dinner here and we absolutely loved it! Everything from ambiance to food and service was top notch. Dishes were truly sophisticated and delicious, staff - very helpful and attentive. We had a wonderful evening at Elementi and will certainly be back soon!

The food at this restaurant is actually very good and reasonably priced, by Lugano standards. We had dinner and enjoyed the risotto, ravioli, chicken, and veal.

Unfortunately, the restaurant is part of a casino, and if you are a foreigner, you need a passport to get in! Which means if you dont bring a passport (or drivers license) you will be turned away by the casino security.

Also, when you get into the casino, its not completely obvious how to get to the restaurant. Or how to leave when you are done.

Pity

We had a great meal. Perfect risotto, wonderful gnocchi, lovely meat and fish, service was attentive and friendly. The casino issue referred to by another reviewer was not something we took seriously, but actually it became intrusive. On the way in we had to show passports, but on the way out we actually had difficulties exiting! The controlled doors didn't work properly and we were "not allowed" to exit through another door. I wonder what would happen in a fire? It rather freaked us out, which was sad. It soured an otherwise very nice evening. I wish they somehow had a separate entrance for the restaurant.

Why would anyone go any where else? Everything I've ever eaten was just delicious: from the fusion dishes which the chef reinterprets with audacity and imagination by using the freshest tastiest ingredients, all the way to the best club sandwich ever created!!
The added bonus for me is the fact that children aren't allowed. Sure, not so great for families but the food deserves all the attention it can get.

The best is that it is open until late. Food is pretty good and the place is pretty modern. Enough selection to choose from.
