Osteria Lanterna

“The starting point for discovering the flavors and scents of the region.”

Located in the historical street of the Wineries of Mendrisio, the “Osteria Lanterna” is the perfect place to enjoy the traditional good dishes, accompanied by a wide selection of Ticino and Italian wines.

The tipical inn, made from ancient cellars, has two rooms with wonderful vaulted ceilings for about 80 people. During summer time, you can take advantage of our panoramic terrace over the Mendrisiotto region and its vineyards for a unique experience!
