Vegetarian Restaurant in Lugano

I've always heard it's difficult to be a vegetarian in an Italian culture city....and I have to agree especially in Lugano where a side dish of vegetables usually consist of BOILED carrots and broccoli....just really not that tasty...

but i've discovered Il RADICCHIO, a vegetarian restaurant!!! I've always knew about it but never went it cus from the outside, it doesn't look soo inviting but wait til you walk in!! I felt like I was back in Los Angeles!! It's a bit hippy style with all the rainbow paintings and the food was DELICIOUS! I had expected maybe vegetarian pasta with cheese (always italian) but when I went this week, they had lentils, orzo, and curry seitan cooked in various different spices...

I totally recommend it!! Vegetarians, you are in luck!

They are quite busy for lunch (not open for dinner) so I would even consider making reservations.
