We stayed in the hotel and having our breakfasts and lunches there wasn't enough, we had all our dinners there too. .. The location is out of this world - very classy service and excellent food. Do not hesitate to go there, as you might want to sample more on the menu as we did...

Stayed at Hotel Stella d'Italia and their restaurants were great. Wonderful food, great service. Lunch outside under trellis, on the Lakes edge was a joy.

Often visit for lunch when weather in Alps nasty on the way to Lugano. Very reasonable prices (compared to Switzerland). Fantastic food, nice staff who held kitchen open for us as we got lost and confused as there now a new tunnel to Lugano, remember to take the old road before the tunnel. So many overpriced and crappy places to... More

Perfect mix of both good food and drinks and An outstanding view. Waiters speak French. Scallopa alla Milanese is amazing. Antipasti too. Highly recommended by the family.

After traveling for nearly one month in Italy, we enjoyed one of our best meals at the Ristorante Hotel Stella d'Italia. We sat outside and enjoyed spectacular views of Lake Lugano while dining on sea bass and risotto. We split both courses and took away some risotto - the portions were very grand! Marco, the head waiter, was very attentive... More

After more than 20 years, I believe, the tunnel that takes the traffic behind San Mamete towards the Swiss border has finally been completed meaning this small town is no longer inundated with traffic bottlenecks, buses and campers trying to pass on a road made for one-way traffic. While the lakefront restaurant at the Stella d'Italia was always an oasis... More

We booked a table for my friends birthday. I told them that I was vegetarian, which they said was not a problem. The setting in the garden is beautiful. As non residents, we were left for quite a time, it seemed to me. In my opinion, the service was poor and, I almost felt like an inconvenience. I had salad... More

Placed just after the Swiss Italian border on a nice terrace by the lake, the restaurant has fantastic views over the mountains. The food is excellent, though very traditional and a bit pricey, but overall it is a wonderful experience if you can eat outside. The inside dining room is dated and not really appealing.

I went there with friends and decided to organize my wedding lunch there: I could not have chosen better! Fantastic food and amazing view(outside, in their garden directly on the water). It is not a cheap restaurant, but I personally prefer to spend a bit more and eat well instead of spending less and not enjoy my meal.
