The three inner rooms, one of which is entirely frescoed, can be accessed through the patio, where there is the ancient wine press for tasting local wines and beers. Just outside a terrace overlooking the Gulf of Lugano offers spectacular 360 degree views A perfect setting for dinner, lunch, or brunch with friends, enjoying our excellent cuisine. At the Locanda del Bigatt the cuisine is rigorously prepared with seasonal products from our organic gardens and orchards: fruit, vegetables, legumes, herbs and perfumes. All other ingredients used in the kitchen also come from the region, from companies that respect the environment and are socially responsible. “Short Km” is one of our values which we also apply for the wines and beer of local producers.
Chef Daniele Giordano is the soul of Locanda dal Bigatt's cuisine. Together with his young colleague Elisabeth Braun, he will amaze you with simple but surprising dishes, where tradition, authenticity and creativity come together. As in every sector of Bigatt, in the cuisine Daniele and Elisabeth are working with collaborators who are trying to get an experience of professional integration and personal and social development.
Wines produced with the grapes grown on the San Salvatore or in the Lugano region, in the Mendrisiotto or in the Sopraceneri can be combined with cheeses or salami from the same places, as well as with finger food of the Bigatt’s kitchen.
Fancy a drink and a light bite? Whatever the time you will be able to taste different kinds of local wine and beer and pair them with snacks of your choice.
Tired after a walk on Monte San Salvatore or after a ride from Lugano to Carona? Nothing better than a sweet or savoury snack or even a brunch on the terrace whilst enjoying the views.
In the dining room and on the terrace the service management is in the expert hands of Anna Valli, Bigatt’s sommelière, who has a deep knowledge of the local producers and their wine. Anna will be able to advise you in the choice of wines and beers to pair with the Daniele’s dishes.
Almost 3000 square meters of land are dedicated to organic orchards and vegetable gardens. These are processed according to the principles of natural agriculture and are respectful of the land and the environment.
Products that do not come from the vegetable gardens are purchased in local companies that respect the same values as Bigatt’s.
