To experience the local cuisine from Ticino
By enjoying a meal that is typical of the area, one gets to learn a lot about the region. And, it would be difficult to find a better way to experience the local cuisine from Ticino than by enjoying a meal at “I Due Sud”.
If you really want to learn more about Swiss culture, and in particular, that of Lugano and the Canton of Ticino, then you simply need to organise a meal at the restaurant belonging to the Hotel Splendide Royal.
The ingredients, colours, presentation, flavours, aromas, attention to detail and the excellent service that is provided to our guests all combine to make a gastronomic dining experience at “I Due Sud” a true representation of everything that is wonderful about Lugano, Switzerland and the Canton of Ticino. Dining in our restaurant will enable you to explore a new world, a new territory, a real sample of what constitutes the real soul of this part of Switzerland through the selection of typical produce and special ingredients.
Eating at “I Due Sud” is the right way to immerse yourself in the local cuisine. This is also because our chef personally selects every single ingredient to be used in his kitchen by thoroughly researching what is available nearby, knowing the local farmers and breeders and small producers whose craftsmanship and animal husbandry are able to make a true gastronomic representation of the local area. Dairy products, fruit, vegetables, fish, grains, meats, sausages and legumes are the starting point for a gastronomic exploration that invents new and traditional dishes that can be chosen from the restaurant’s menu and the chef’s recommendations.
This is a really exploratory journey through the essence of Switzerland which is rounded off by the accompaniment of wonderful wines that come from Lugano and the Canton of Ticino. There are so many marvellousways in which you can experience the symbolic delicacies of the region, such as the local Merlot which always astonishes with its flavour in new and surprising ways.
