Looking through the old photos I came across some pictures from this restaurant. Come to think of it, it all went by in a flash - I got engaged there, celebrated my wedding, birthdays and anniversaries of the dearest family members. It made me feel nostalgic as if wishing to call on a friend of mine I haven't heard of for four months.

I know I can count on an elegant and romantic ambience, impeccable service and exquisite food.
" What else? "
Oops, this phrase may well attract George Clooney there, so it's better to hurry up and book a table :)

The food was excellent and the waiter divine! After wandering the grounds and going through the museum we had a lovely lunch on the patio. So fresh and healthy.

Chef Davide did it again! What an amazing risotto and pigeon and lamb! Meat absolutely tasty, tender and juicy, risotto probably the finest we ever had for long time. This place is definitely the best culinary experience in Ticino.
