  • At the lake promenade in the old town, porticoed buildings with facades from patrician families (eg. Palazzo Paleari) among whom there is the captain's Tower, tower which had control function on the Lake, with the façade remains of fresco; from the Lake departing several strecie, narrow streets – more or less steep that climb to reach, for example, the Church of Sant'Antonio abate, the Church of Santa Maria del Sasso, the Oratory of Saint Anthony of Padua, the monumental cemetery, ... from which you can enjoy a particularly beautiful view of Lake Ceresio/Lugano. Morcote, which today is a country of less than 1000 inhabitants was for centuries an important trading center of the Sottoceneri in the current Canton Ticino, the most important port in the area; for this, in an environment very interesting scenic beautiful and historical traces. Stroll along the lake or climb up to the Church of Santa Maria del Sasso through the village is really quite pleasant!

  • Outside I had a bad impression while just entered I changed my mind, really large, spacious, clean, well-presented dishes. I ate pizza. Good, crumbly dough and digestible, friendly staff

  • We tried the place like pizza and loved it! Good pizzas (especially for pizza lovers low and crispy) and fair price (19 euro two stuffed pizzas and one liter of water) we will be back to try the restaurant menu
