Have you ever dined in the gardens of a Villa on the shores of Lake Lugano?


Starting July 23, the exclusive series of "Antiqua Garden Dining" will land in Brusino Arsizio! Antiqua's new location, a true hidden gem, will be nestled between the shores of Lake Lugano and the gardens of the recently renovated historic Villa Patria. Chef Roberto Strazullo will ensure refined and creative cuisine, and will be ready to amaze Antiqua guests thanks to his years of experience alongside the renowned Master Ernst Knam. A Bar will be set up inside the Villa offering mostly Ticino drinks: from craft beers to local wines, from soft drinks to cocktails! Antiqua Garden Dining is intended to be a versatile dinner, where guests will be able to sit and eat comfortably in "lounge style" while enjoying a lake proposition to be discovered! Antiqua Lago is an unmissable experience for those who want to disconnect from the daily routine and enjoy a moment of tranquility and serenity on the shores of Lake Ceresio, 15 minutes from Mendrisio and 30 minutes from Lugano. Reserve your place now at Garden Dining at Villa Patria in Brusino Arsizio and enjoy a memorable evening with friends.
