Dedication and Passion for fine tastes
Gabbani is a family company steeped in tradition. Founded on 23 December 1937  by Domenico Gabbani, a qualified butcher and experienced gastronome, opened his butcher  and delicatessen shop in an old town house  in  Via Pessina.
Although  it was years beyond its time,  the small family business committed very early to gastronomy.  The war years  were a hard  on everyone, but at the beginning  of the economic boom, the  business started to flourish. Gabbani developed its brand and became the  place  in Lugano for exquisite specialities, fine tastes and quality and it still is today.
At the beginning of the 1960s, Domenico’s son Lino took over the responsibilities of running the business and developed the company with considerable entrepreneurial vision.
Specialisation, appreciation of regional products, individual service and customer care are the basic principles of the latest additions to the  business. The  butcher shop has been joined by  cheese shop with a  fruit and vegetable corner, as well as a  bakery, a wine shop and a flower shop.  Efficient and creative in style, they represent the modern version of the traditional town shop and breathe new life   into the old town of Lugano with their vibrancy and charm.  Flourishing trade favours  the urban environment and  the Gabbani family company have made a valuable contribution with  courage and perseverance.
Gabbani has also been a pioneer  in the field of catering and event management.  Since the 1960s  it   has been providing  tailor-made services for private and business events and in keeping with the trends,  also full  service range  for banqueting and congresses.
The Gabbani Restaurant & Bar opened in the Piazza Cioccaro in 2010 and at the same time,  the cheese, bakery, wine,  and fruit and vegetable shops  also relocated their businesses there. A stylish mix of fine food shops emerged together with the restaurant and bar,  creating an exciting  culinary project in a historic setting, right in the middle of  Lugano’s old town.  
In 2012 the extraordinary structure  around the ancient courtyard of a former  convent opened its doors as  the Hotel Gabbani.  The  Design  hotel in the center  of Lugano,  offers 14 rooms and impresses with an individually designed   high class interior,  the  perfect choice   for  guests looking  for   an unique  and charming ambience surrounded by the culinary temptations of Gabbani’s fine food shops.
In the same year the historic meat processing workshop  Prada in Bioggio was   integrated into the company. This is a significant step and allows Gabbani to directly  control the quality and origin of its meat products, as well as their processing and in-house storage.
In 2015, Gabbani took over the Gant  production workshop for Panettone and Amaretti. Delicious pastries, are prepared here every day with great care and skill according to traditional  recipes, handmade  with best quality ingredients.
