Quality food, attentive service, a bit overpriced. Specialty "Fegato a la veneziana" liver venetian style. Very good selection of wine. Don´t offend the owner ordering only water.

This perfectly placed, family run restaurant and hotel is the true impression of Ticino. The firendliness and warm welcome by the owner's and staff is not surpassed by any 5 star hotel or restaurant in the world. I have been to the best restaurants in the world, and this is among them. The menu is limited to a few dishes... More

Tesserete is small community nearby Lugano and Stazione is located nearby forme train station that is now bus station. It is owned by same family since 1930. Dinner menu has three courses and it is very tasty, service is great and very friendly. As all restaurant in Switzerland, it is rather expensive.

I've been with friends at Ristorante Stazione long time ago, but I had no doubt that after many years the quality stayed the same. This family run business is guaranteeing excellent food and excellent service, at prices that are in line with their quality.

Great place to recommend - the food is excellent, the service is very attentive without being obtrusive and the prices are more than acceptable. Worth on its own a little side trip from Lugano, but apart from that there is a typical Ticino village to visit nearby (Sonvico). La Stazione can also be visited with small children, not a lot...

Very pleasant environment of tables, inside and outdoor. Excellent food with lots of original tastes. Service is simply fantastic. Simple but putting each custumer at the centre of the attention of the chef and waiters. Just take a detour, if in Lugano region. It is worthy.

We chose to stay here for two days while we visited Ticino and the area around Lugano, a 10 minute drive from Tesserete. We also chose to eat dinner at Ristorante Stazione the first night but it was so delicious that we came back from our outing in Lugano just to eat here a second night. They specialize in game...
