Nice ambience outdoors while still under the vaulted ceiling of this typical Ticinesi arcade. Friendly staff and good service. Our group of four had a variety of their offerings, such as spaghetti carbonara and spaghetti pesto, Lasagna of the house while I enjoyed their Polenta con Coniglio (Rabitt). Good rich food, friendly service. Unfortunately we were seated inside as all... More

Wonderful hospitality and fantastic food. We ate here twice on our three day trip to Lake lugano. The lasagne is the best I have ever tasted. The best part was how welcome the owners make you feel. Can't wait to return.

We were at a family dinner. First, very friendly service. Secondly, very good, fresh and made with fresh product food. Thirdly, all the tables occupied, which can not be said about the restaurant next door. Risotto With Mushrooms! Gnocci with Gorgonzola! If have a chance to visit Morcote - definitely worth it.

Consistently high standards, both in service and from the kitchen. Good range of food on the menu including some Ticino specialties. This has always been a regular restaurant of choice in Morcote.

This small restaurant is on the main street of Morcote and next to several other restaurants; while the others were largely empty, this one was full. We could see why. They have fresh mushrooms sent up from Italy and are absolutely huge and delicious. The tagliatelle funghi cost 30 CHF - a lot for a simple pasta dish - but... More

On that beautiful spot in Morcote we had been served quickly, friendly. Fresh salads, good quality food overall. ( and a nice collection of grappas :-) ) On another day we had just a little lunch - also nice !

The 2 polente we had (with Ossobuco and with Gorgonzola, both delicious) were rustic, piping hot, and flavorful. Even the salad was large and varied. Service attentive and friendly. Nice setting of lake views under portico with overhead electric heaters.

We went there for dinner while on vacation in Ticino Switzerland. Risorante Battello is only a small restaurant , a few tables inside and a few outside on the plaza. We were received very friendly by the owner, who brought us some delicious cold roast strip loin for an apero with our wine at no charge.We started with a nice... More

I visited the restaurant with friends and relatives that live in Zurich. It was the first time for every one of us there and after a long walk we decided to sit there because of the view. The stuff was very friendly and the restaurant is a mini but very cosy place. We had only main course because we didn't... More
