I was really looking forward to dinner at this restaurant. Food: I got the 5 course tasting menu. The food was very good. The portions are large, and the whole table left feeling full. The courses were well paced and got increasingly larger as they...More

New restaurant in the palazzo Mantegazzi. Interior is contemporary: Hi tech lifts, glass, transparent plastic chairs and white walls. Vitello tonnato was tasty and tender but the steak was a little bit overdone (surely not medium). I think it's a good place to have a...More

If it would have been a little cheaper the restaurant would have got a higher grade. But the prices were really high and for paying that amount it was only OK. I would have thought better food. But nice place, very modern and with good...More

Nice place with lake view during spring/summer. Every day they have great special dishes (not in the menu). The service is professional and kind. I'll go there also to have tartare or club sandwich for lunch.

This place is a MUST try! The restaurant is located across Lake Lugano (Paradiso). The view is fantastic. The food exceed all expectations. The plates are of small portions but with lots of flavor. The service was the best I have experienced so far.
