Unforgettable celebrations by the lake

celebration restaurant

The restaurant Il Ritrovo, on the shores of Lake Lugano, is like an open window on Porto Ceresio. With the beautiful setting of the lake, and the garden surrounding the restaurant, you can plan events which will prove unforgettable for you and your guests.


Our facilities are suitable for ceremonies of any kind, since the restaurant is designed to host both intimate romantic evenings and receptions for large groups.


We have a large, elegantly furnished terrace, where you can hold your wedding reception. Our garden is attractively designed and overlooks the lake, providing the perfect backdrop for your wedding photos.


Il Ritrovo will help you to organize your wedding reception or other celebration, attending to all the details from the choice of the menu, wines and aperitifs, to the music and the flowers.

Delicious food in a dream location


Our staff will give you expert advise about the menu best suited to your needs, with an emphasis on traditional Italian and regional cuisine.


The strength of Il Ritrovo is our focus on seasonal produce, and the use of traditional products of very high quality and authentic local specialities.


You can enjoy seasonal dishes, and recipes based on from the lake or sea, but our chefs also serve delicious

international cuisine.

On request, you can also enjoy an excellent pizza.
