Excellent location right on the hills above Lugano lake, good quality of food - not at the same level the wine - though food management and service with big potential of improvement. On a busy Sunday, the quality of service cannot drop this way.

Nice and lovely location. They arrange a very tasty breakfast based on home-made cakes and fresh fruit juice, followed from high quality brunch with several tipical salumi from the region, well cooked risotto and cosy selection of desserts. Very good quality. Friendly and kind staff...More
