Description: Welcome to Bellini Locanda Ticinese. Here we serve delicious and typical dishes from Ticino, the southern part of Switzerland. Have a trial and choose personally your wine from the top 50 Ticino wines in our cellar Bellini Cantina. Or else have a tavolata there with some of your friends. Bellini Salotto is the cosy setting where you may enjoy private dinner up to 10 persons. In wintertime enjoy staying nearby the romantic fireplace at Bellini Lounge, in summertime feel the sweet summer breath in our Bellini Giardino under elm and chestnut trees. Bellini Take Away is ready to serve you "on the way" whereas Bellini Negozio is the place to find our products for presents or for your kitchen at home. The Bellini Locanda Ticinese in the Hotel Continental Park is between 2-3 walking minutes away from the KKL and shipping pier. The hotel is located just opposite to Lucerne's main train station and very near to the university of Lucerne.

We went for the GF pizza and pasta for my daughter. I was impressed to see complete sections of the menu highlighting specific GF options.

Nice comfortable setting with fresh air coming through. We went early, only about 3 tables occupied at the time. And yet, it was nearly an hour from order to receiving food (and we did not order GF pasta which I know can be slower). Too bad, because everything else was quite good.

Title says it all. Great Gluten Free options including pizza, pasta and bread. Solid wine list as well. Service was sub par. Our server was nice but all over the place. Water refills took some time and the entres also were very slow to come out.

We would go back just so my wife could have the GF options offered. The food was very good but I would try another place before going back.

Buongiorno mjgonzales8,
Thank you for your great review on Tripadvisor. We are happy to read that you enjoyed the food & hospitality in our restaurant. We change our à la carte menu around 5 times a year so we are sure you will find something new on the menu next time. For sure on a Friday or Saturday evening it can get quite busy in our restaurant. May be next time even our timing is perfect. A la prossima!
Cordiali saluti,
Alessandro Pedrazzetti, Andrea Ljubicic e Bassem Ayad & Team Bellini

Buongiorno MarilynandGary,
Thank you for your breakfast review which we really appreciate. Friendly service and hospitality are very important for us as a family owned business. We hope you ordered our delicious waffles or the omelettes from the kitchen. On sundays we have even a bigger variety when we serve brunch.
Hope to see you again one day.

Since we were staying in the hotel, we ate here several times. Breakfast was very good...lots of options, fresh juice, great coffee. For lunch we shared a pizza with an amazingly thin crust. It was more than enough for the two of us. For dinner, I had the lasagna which was delicious but the portion, seriously could have fed 2 or 3 people.

Buongiorno Sharon M,
Thank you for your honest feedback. We are happy you enjoyed your meals in our restaurant. We are working now with a food waste concept. We serve smaller portions and are more than happy to give a supplement if our guests are still hungry.
Cordiali saluti,

Breakfast was included with our stay at the attached hotel, Continental-Park. The buffet items were fresh and delicious. Cooked to order items can be requested.
