Absolutely delicious. The food is amazing and the kindness is huge. I was there by myself but the experience worth it. Amazing food proper recommendation of the wine and super friendly service. If youbare in Locarno dont miss it :)
Found this place thru TripAdvisor. Nice typical ticino restaurant. All around seafood is the specialty. Nice wine list. The staff very nice and fast.
Yes... will recommend to everybody
Yes... will be back
We enjoyed a great dinner with friends before the Locarno Film Festival. The food was excellent, the service was very attentive and they were diligent to serve us as it was obvious that we would have to leave in time for the film.
Well worth...visiting if you are looking to enjoy top cuisine in Locarno.
One of the couples are vegetarian and they were very happy with the vegetarian options -- attractive choices offered for vegetariansMore
Had a wonderful experience having dinner with my mom at this restaurant. Lovely ambiance and delicious food. It was a cool spring day so they had a wood burning fire going. Presentation of the food was spectacular. Had the duck breast which was cooked perfectly....Service was spot on and the chef came out and greeted us as well. Highly recommend.More
Greeted by a wonderful fire on a winters day. Not busy but you felt immediately settled, feeling the food was going to be good and it was. The greeting was friendly and curtious
All four of us went for the "set menu" but determined by...the number of courses. All were most enjoyable, presented and cooked perfectly.
I would certainly recommend this restaurantMore
When we entered the Locana Locarnese we instantly knew that this would be a great lunch. The tables are set with attention to the detail and the fireplace makes guests feel warm and fuzzy right from the start. We were taken well care off by...a very attentive staff and the chef also checked himself if we were satisfied with our food. We definitely were and are already looking forward to returning to Locanda Locarnese in summerMore
A MUST TRY if you are staying in Ascona or Locarno. My husband and I luckily fell upon the restaurant as we were walking to a different restaurant where we had a reservation, but decided not to go after being warmly greeted by the waitress....Lucky for us, there was room for two and our LOVELY waitress seemed to have a solution to every question before we even asked her. There is a reason this restaurant is ranked so highly – the chef even came out to our table (and many others) to check on our meal and experience.
We are very familiar with good food (look for Michelin star restaurants on our travels, live in New York City), and we were thoroughly impressed with this experience from start to finish. The portion sizes are quite large for the tasting, and the waitress/chef were very accommodating (many restaurants require the entire table to participate in the same menu and have strict, no substitution policies). My husband was able to increase the size of his fish course, and decrease the size of his meat course and I was able to order a la carte. Again, I cannot say enough about our waitress. She was so nice, warm, and genuinely made us feel like she enjoyed her job. I wish I had her name – THANK YOU for such a great meal!More
