Suggested by Deborah: Bar Oops

“I definitely recommend Bar Oops for its alternative, informal and rock vibes. It is not only an inexpensive bar with a  great variety of drinks and snacks, but it is also the right place to mingle with students and locals (from the youngest to the oldest). Don’t miss the chance to play foosball or to watch the football match with your friends!”

Suggested by Axl: Trinity Irish Pub

The Trinity is the ideal pub in which people can come up and relax, tasting a great variety of beer, enjoying sporting events and listening to good old rock music. The restaurant is wide awake, pushed by its amazing hamburgers and others juicy specialty of the house. Oh, I almost forgot… The Trinity offers also a smoking-room containing a typical pinball machine and a pool table. Definitely my favorite place, I feel like home!”

Suggested by Luca: Biblio Café TRA l’altro

“This is a perfect place where people can relax intensely. It has a very kind and peaceful atmosphere where the customer can read a book while have a cup of tea, a beer or a coffee. Inside the bar there is a library and some games where the customer can spend time having fun. Moreover, there is also an outdoor bar where smoking is allowed!”

Suggested by Paola: Spaghetti Store

“I strongly recommend Spaghetti Store for its typical Italian specialties, served in generous quantity and good quality. Pizza is served also cutting board, at cheap prices. The atmosphere is young, cozy, informal and the guests also can enjoy the view of the longlake of Lugano. Indeed, Spaghetti Store is situated on the longlake, near to the sea. A nice occasion to take a relaxing walk there after enjoying a pizza or a special Italian meal!”

Suggested by Giosia: Piadina Giusta

“Piadina giusta is an italian “piadina” store near the Univeristy, in the street Via Carlo Maderno 23. The environment is comfortable, and the people working there are friendly. I love this place because is perfect for having lunch or a snack without spending that much. Furthermore they cook many different types of “piadina” both salty and sweet!”
