In the train station, this restaurant always fresh seafood, and unusal for Lugano, they have great Rosti (there are a lot of Germans and Swiss-Germans who take the train here)

I often have lunch at the Buffet della Stazione since it's near my job place. The pizza is good and so the rest of the proposed dishes. A good option for a lunch break or to have a bite while you wait your train.

Not bad for a railroad station but of course not enough for a regular restaurant. Quick. Eatable. Nothing special.
