Located at Villa Girasole in Parco San Marco, La Masseria Restaurant has an elegant and welcoming décor. In the heart of the restaurant is a tuff vault, an ancient wine cellar, dating back to the eighteenth century.
The two fireplaces help to make the atmosphere more comfortable and romantic during the coldest days.
Its large terrace, illuminated by the almost always shining Italian sun, enjoys a fantastic view of Lake Lugano and the subtropical gardens of the resort and receives even more charm thanks to the unmistakable personality of Tsvetan, who for many years welcomes guests with his kindness and professionalism.
The soul of the restaurant La Masseria Mediterranean Grill is undoubtedly its authentic environment where you can taste the culinary specialities of ??Lake Lugano, Como and the typical Italian flavors.
In La Masseria you will find the best cuts of meat selected and processed by master butchers, who boast twenty-years of experience.
The meat is dry matured for 40 days. This dry ageing process gives rise to our high-quality marbled steak.
The preparation on the "Big Green Egg" grill maximises the typical aromas of the meat and the caramelisation gives an unmistakable appearance to the steaks and ribs.
We use only first choice cuts from selected animals from Lombardy, Piedmont, Sicily and Sardinia and the animals are reared on grassy pastures and fed exclusively on grass and cereals. As the person responsible for all four restaurants in Parco San Marco, the executive chef also took up the reins in “La Masseria Mediterranean Grill”. The previous culinary focus of the restaurant has been retained with the menu still offering predominantly Italian cuisine. However, with the reopening of the restaurant, has expanded the menu to include a wider range of dishes. A new feature is that guests can request fresh fish and meat from the grill, and food lovers will be spoilt for choice by the sweet creations produced by the hotel’s pastry chef. The wine selection will please connoisseurs with a range of carefully selected fine wines from both renowned and lesser-known Italian wine regions.
“La Masseria Mediterranean Grill” entered the AIC (Italian Celiac Association) list of certified gluten-free restaurants, thanks to its commitment to provide an offer suitable for celiac in its menu.
