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.

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.

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.
