A highly suggested cosy restaurant if you find yourself wandering around Lugano. Friendly stuff and great food.

The deer filet with chanterelles was excellent. Right degree of preparation. The other meals of the party also were tasty. The chestnut desert was delicious, although the amount of chantilly was a bit too much for some. The wine list, at least the reds, was exclusively Ticino wines. We had an excellent Tre Terre, but it was a gamble.

We loved everything about this restaurant which was in walking distance from our hotel. Got 3 courses each and equally surprised by the quality of each dish

We missed the ferry back to Lugano after a LONG hike - stopped in this beautiful lakeside restaurant to get help. The food and drink were great, and the owner/manager helped us get a taxi back to our car near Lugano. We owe him big time. Really, really nice people.

On a beautiful Saturday hike, we crossed the lovely village of Carona and found this jewel : its sunny terrace made us sit there although we had a pic nic packed! One of the very friend waitresses (they are two sisters) explained the menu to us:we were all charmed by the crespelle a la fiorentina! Highly recommended!

What a fantastic surprise. In the heart of Carona Village, a beautiful village on top of San Salvatore mountain, right above Lugano Lake, we went for dinner at Ristorante Posta. We sat outside where there's an inspiring enchanting garden. Ambience is just amazing and the food too. Delicious!

Friday, March 27, 2015 we had a delicious dinner at this nice Restaurant in Carona, a small village on the hill range between Monte San Salvatore and Morcote in the Ticino (Switzerland). It is really worth to visit this place.

We ate lunch at this restaurant. It was a shame that we could not sit outside - even though the weather was good, the end of the season has arrived and the sitting area outside was full of leaves and would have needed a "recovery from the weather/time of year However, we ate inside, which was a nice room, not...
