the place are beautifull and the service efficient and the meals are good, i recomend the "risotos". very good although some times with too many sauces
Antica Osteria del Porto was recommended by our hotel concierge as a simpler alternative to the very fine dining experience in our hotel. It is located near the harbor, and the atmosphere was somewhat spoiled by the construction project adjacent. It was still very nice to dine outside under the trees on a hot night in August. The food was... More
I tried a good octopussy salad with potatoes and carrots. Then I tasted a first course of Paccheri (a type of pasta) with delicious mussles. I drank a very tasty but a little bitter Merlot from Ticino. From the garden there is a nice view on the lake of Lugano. The service was excellent and the waiters were professional and... More
After a recommendation from our hotel, we ventured to this hard to find spot. Sandwiched between the park and the yatch club, it's a very nice setting. The food was excellent, prices are ok and the atmosphere is excellent if you get to sit outside. I would recommend this spot.

The location by the river and lake is nice and it is quite beautiful to eat outside under the trees. Service... More
Reasonable food for reasonable price. Good service.
This restaurant was recommended to us as being a bit off the tourist track but I'm not convinced. Friendly, efficient service but it might have been different if full. All the food was over salted to my taste, to the point where I didn't finish it.
