Food was really good but pasta is not all home-made as mentioned on the menu (my Rigatoni were not). Carta dei vini offers something for all tastes. Service was attentive but could be more coordinated (not all waitors can take care of all tables). Location: small but authentic and near the lake which is a big plus to attract people walking by.

Great place alongside the lake with a road in between. We were able to sit outside as they are very well organized but the traffic "bus, trucks, cars and motorbikes" is very noisy and we didn't communicate well but they have arranged a nice atmosphere. Prices are on the upper level, crowd seemed rather upscale.

A nice restaurant very close to the lake. Food was good but very expensive. Staff was very friendly. We also had a chance to meet the owner Alice. While she was very friendly, she unfortunately wore a very strong perfume, a no go in a restaurant. Good vegetarian options.

It is a small and cute restaurant we visited for lunch. We shared burrata and ham platter, it was divine. For main we had poke bowls, visually stunning but a little flavourless. Ordered Pea flour pasta for my daughter, she liked it, sauce was excellent, the pea pasta not su much. Good wine, lovely atmosphere, good service and gorgeous view . I recommend this place when in Lugano.
