Classic settings in a fairy-tale residence overlooking Lake Lugano, where in summer there is a host of guests eager to enjoy watching the sunset over dinner, in one of the most beautiful garden terraces in Ticino. Chef Dario Ranza has been director of operations for twenty-eight years of what has become a temple of gourmet cuisine, whose reputation has spread far and wide. The tables are laid with linen, silver and crystal glassware, in opulent style that contrasts with a linear cuisine which is surprising for its simplicity and for that touch of flair that makes every single dish something unique, thanks to the dedicated hands of the chef. In the dining room, the head maître-sommelier, Claudio Recchia, accompanies guests on a unique experience, and the sommelier, Gabriele Speziale, helps them to find the perfect pairing for their choice of meal, by exploring the villa’s ample wine cellar. A stop-off in this Swiss canton is an absolute must for a cuisine that focuses on tradition and on hints of Lombardy and Ticino with a reinterpretation that is truly reliable and full of flair.
