“The place is beautiful, especially in the summer because you can sit outside. Everyone is extremely nice and friendly and the food is absolutely amazing. It is not a restaurant for tourists.”

“Nur acht Kilometer von Lugano entfernt, bietet dieser 18 Loch Club einen abwechslungsreichen und anspruchsvollen Parcours mit vielen Wasserhindernissen, engen Fairways und einer reichen Vegetation. Der Fluss Magliasina zieht sich direkt durch die Anlage und ist an sieben Stellen zu überspielen.”

Restaurant
“Casual dining, excellent food, yet inexpensive (for Switzerland) . Definitely a contender for "best Roman-style pizza in Lugano" in my opinion. Also, they do HUGE pasta dishes, perfect for the hungry humans, who have just come down from the mountains.”
