META Restaurant is located in a modern and confortable location inside the impressive Palazzo Mantegazza, right on the shore of the lake, just few minutes from the centre of Lugano. The location has been opened in March 2009 and still astonishes tourists and visitors.
The Restaurant’s philosophy has always been of offering simple and natural products, transformed in particular and refined courses never forgetting passion and creativity. The cuisine boasts a culinary path that offers both a seasonal gourmet menu and a selection of the best quick and easy dishes. Both the proposals are able to satisfy different customers with their tasty, savoury and distinctive traits.
Our Chef Luca Bellanca and his group propose a Med-Fusion philosophy. They mix the Mediterranean cuisine with exotic marks and unusual marinades or they interpret dishes far from local culture to the local taste.
Next to the gastronomic offer signed by META, we list a special tartar menu, sandwiches, extraordinary salads and the famous Meta Burger.
The attention and the care for details are strict and each dish is born from fresh products highly focused on quality.
Italian for birth, Luca Bellanca has many international experiences, from the California’s gulf till the Mediterranean cost of Spain, where he had the opportunity to improve his techniques in various famous culinary restaurants.
These experiences allowed him to offer a Med&Fusion cuisine, mixing ingredients from the Mediterranean region with amazing exotic notes.
