It is a busy restaurant in the city, in the commercial center, leaving the Via Roma towards the lake,it is in a small square with a church. If you can't find it ask, and now I can not find the address. There are tables on the terrace, an area covered with glass, and a tiny bar with a few tables more. I recommend the pizzas, very thin, large and scrumptious, the escalope Milanese as usual, see how they like it in Lugano, in northern Italy, and chocolate truffle doesn' come close to those of Rome. It is a place to recommend for its atmosphere, and especially the pizzas. Price normal.
This restaurant should be a must for anyone visiting Lugano. At least I enjoyed it. It's a 15 minute walk to the lake, through the park. It offers a good variety of Mediterranean and Lombard cuisine, which is a must in the Italian Swiss area. The atmosphere is perfect and the waiters are very kind. But the food, I tried a risotto that surely has become part of the pantheon of rice. It was excellent. The homemade desserts were also wonderful.
At the top of Mount San Salvatore, just outside the funicular, you can find this restaurant, which, despite being touristy, is very interesting. The food wasn't great, but everything was good. What is striking about this place are the spectacular views from the terrace, which is covered in winter. The terrace alone is worth it, at least, for a coffee or a beer.
