We really enjoyed dinner here and went back for lunch again the next day. Once in a while we find a great local spot, fantastic food, views and folks passionate about their art. This was it in Lugano.
Food: A combination of traditional cuisine with a modern twist. We had the opportunity to try a number of dishes and enjoyed every one of them. Our favorite was the cooked vegetables in aspic, the carrot flan with cumin and the pasta with peppers. The dishes are prepared fresh to order and the flavors wonderful. Th portions are substantial, we were full after an appetizer and mean. Leave place for the amazing desserts. We were in Lugano for a week, and this was the best food we had in the region, including some of the more expensive places in town (see other reviews). It is well worth the drive out to Gandria for dinner or lunch.
Ambiance: A nice outdoor seating with a fabulous view of the lake. Book early for a seat with a view. They have indoor seating too. The casual and fun atmosphere relaxes you and does not take away for the amazing food.
Service: Outstanding in every way. This restaurant is run by three chefs, and they do everything. She offered to translate the menu into English verbally, and you can tell the passion these folks cook with. This restaurant is a work, very hard work mind you, of passion and pleasure and you feel this radiate for all three of them.
We loved our total experience here, and recommend this restaurant highly. We also wish these three young chefs success in their passion and art.
