In the train station, this restaurant always fresh seafood, and unusal for Lugano, they have great Rosti (there are a lot of Germans and Swiss-Germans who take the train here)

I often have lunch at the Buffet della Stazione since it's near my job place. The pizza is good and so the rest of the proposed dishes. A good option for a lunch break or to have a bite while you wait your train.

Simple food at the station. Tried the Risotto al Merlot del Ticino e Mascarpone; excellent taste, quick service and very friendly.

Service was fast and ok. I ordered a quite simple pizza, and the lower part was mostly burnt. Being cancerigen, I throwed away more than half of the pizza. When highlighted the problem to the staff, no reaction back: no partial refund, no compensation, no free shot, simply nothing. Resuming, bad cuisine (at least bad pizza) and no customer oriented...

You would be surprised like me how good the food is in this place. Inside a train station you would normally expect a low standard of food maybe some sandwiches but not much more, but here is a different story, we tried few dishes and all were very tasty and well made including pizza.Obviously the location is what it is,...

I have been in this place at least 3 times, always with my family. The first two times we ate a pizza, but last time, we choose some risotto, some meat, and some en other stuff that require more then a good "pizzaiolo". We were all extremely happy with the quality of the food, and the good suggestions of the... More

Not bad for a railroad station but of course not enough for a regular restaurant. Quick. Eatable. Nothing special.

This was our last night in Lugano...some chf to use up...as with most European rail cafes this one was very good.....clean linen table clothes, smartly turned out staff, an extensive menu with reasonable prices. For us it was a short walk back to the Continental Park Hotel...oh and the place was a popular choice for local folk.

We had almost a 2 hour layover at Lugano on our way to Milan and this was the only restaurant that was open on New Year's day. We ordered the prosciutto pizza and the simple penne pasta with tomato sauce. The pizza was really good and memorable, the pasta simple but well prepared. The bread cover charge plus the non...
