    In April on our first visit to agape we had a thematic menu with asparagus. The dishes were spectacular and the food was excellent. Yesterday we were a bit disappointed as the servings lacked the beauty of presenting food. We will not go there any more.

    Outstanding, innovative and delicious food with warm, exemplary service. Unquestionably Michelin star-worthy. A wonderful first meal in Lugano. Many thanks.

    Alesia our waiter was very attentive, made excellent suggestions for champagne and wine, and made the evening very enjoyable. We enjoyed the ‘surprise’ tasting menu - the risotto was my fav!

    Agapé is a wonderful place where your senses get spoiled by wonderful people and excellent food. Eating there is like listening to a symphony. You can also buy some homemade deserts. Hope to return soon.

    Wonderful gem to find and enjoy. A true example of love for the gastronomical (agape) experience. Enjoyed the chefs choice menu. Superb! They change their menu every 7 days. Make reservations as early as you can as they are limited in their capacity.

    We had the four-course meal. We were told it would be a surprise. It was excellent. Quality was outstanding. And quantity was not wanting. Highly recommend!

    We had a lovely lunch, sat outside, the waiter was very pleasant and recommended something which wasn't on the menu which was very nice. Very cheery atmosphere, lovely setting . . . On the more expensive side for a light lunch.

    The first bite of the small kitchen courtesy was crazy delicious, out of this world! But let’s go step by step, because not the whole experience was like that. This is a restaurant that privileges quality over quantity, as the waiter informs you from the beginning. Expect expensive prices, very well presented dishes, very good service and good taste. The portions are compact, without actually being really small. I had the surprise menu, which disappointed me because it was not really a surprise. The surprise consists of the chef (or the personal of the restaurant) choosing for you what combination of starter, first plate, second plate and dessert you will have. But the dishes were listed in the weekly menu, so it was not an additional choice to what I had already read and that’s why I think it was disappointing. I expected something not included in the menu. The taste of the food was between good and really good in all dishes. Except for the risotto, which was prepared in octopus ink and after half of my portion the taste started to feel too intensive and somehow too salty. In this sense, the portion was too big to be part of a 4 -course menu. I found the atmosphere elegant, strict, and boring, really decadent and this does not transmit he sense of joy hat the food gives you in the mouth. I found particularly annoying that the clients didn’t seem to feel comfortable talking in a normal voice. Everybody was whispering their conversations as though they were afraid of disturbing the other people. It didn’t feel relaxed and natural, but this might have been just a matter of the clients of that particular night.

    My wife and I are foodies. We travel the world and try the best restaurants wherever we can. Agapé is clearly one of the best ones we tried, and it has a little extra that makes a huge difference. Every dish is fantastic, every ingredient is carefully chosen and cooked at perfection. The wine pairing is great, and includes surprising discoveries. The Chef and his wife are great and entertaining hosts. No hesitation, we will be back!

    Was an ok dinner. The wines was very good. But regarding the "citrus" 5 course meny missing the love totally, only the risotto standing out taste wise, all other Courses were medioker.
