The Restaurant Cantinone is located in the historic center of Lugano between Salita Chiattone and Piazza Cioccaro, at the intersection of the six districts that originally made up the nucleus of the village: Nassa, Sassello, Cioccaro, Pessina, Cortogna and Canova.

With a warm and welcoming atmosphere, it has belonged to the Bordogna family since its opening day. The restaurant includes a dining room on the ground floor, two air-conditioned rooms on the first floor and a large terrace overlooking Piazza Cioccaro.
