During our trip we have visited this family restaurant located high up the Mountains. It was the first time we visited this kind of restaurant. The weather was perfect and they placed everybody outside so we have the chance to admire beautifull landscales. The staff was absolutely friendly. We chose the mix of different grilled meats. The idea of this restaurant is that you choose the hot dish and besides they serve standard appetisires, salades etc. The main dish is meat of all kinds cooked on open fire. Beside they served Rissotto, salades on your choice. Everything was delicious. We can hardly finish meats though my son and my friend are really fond of meat. The portions were absolutely big. Unexpectedly the dessert were delicious too, not meat only. We left them full and happy.

it's a pity the restaurant don't take Reservations. the service is fast and correct a bit "depersonalised" though since the waitress run all the time, the food is ok.
if you are outside, unfortunately the smokers will invade your "sobremesa" with smokes... a pity.
Nostrana, "une valeur sûre"

High prices for small portions were not unexpected for this kind of top end restaurant (16 points on Gault-Millau, although last year it had 17), and the food was indeed good, refined and elegantly presented with a sofisticated touch of molecular cuisine. I can't complain about the service either: quite friendly. Unfortunately, the atmosphere was deceiving: the place feels a bit cold, not all elements of decoration are very tasteful for such an elegant place and the absolute absence of background music makes you feel uncomfortable talking as every word reverberates in the room. The wine selection is nonetheless very impressive.

The eatery does not look very appealing, but the food here is very good and at excellent value.
The sea bass is not to be missed, and the oil & garlic spaghetti is excellent here.
I don't recommend the dessert here but it wasn't bad.
Location: Once you reach the church turn right and the restaurant will be to your right.

we had dinner here, and it was good, even very good, but still below expectations. we opted for the menue (one surf, one turf, with respective first and main dish) and a bottle of wine. somehow it all lacked the last little bit, in taste, in presentation, in service. for the price (200 CHF for the two of us), I would expect more. compared to our dinner in Locanda Locarnese (for the same price), we felt disappointed.

I chose this restaurant for the position in the tripadvisor ranking. I appreciate the interior look, especially the wine room and the open kitchen.
The restaurant is very large, it has become industry, without personality, without interaction with customers, kind of: eat and go!
The ordered aperitif took a long time, just as I imagined, the kitchen does not cope with the size of the restaurant. I almost finished my bread basket. The aperitif, "insalata di polipo alla mediterranea", was ok but not memorable.
I asked for a recommendation to the waiter for the main course, he recommended me what was more expensive, without arguments. So... I eat the worst cooking salmon in my life. Extremely well made and tasteless inside. I asked for vegetables but I got the risotto. They quickly replaced, but the vegetables had no taste, just boiled and thrown into a bowl.
In the same "fast and furious" style, after I finished my beer, they took my glass so fast that I didn't notice it and obviously I wasn't asked if I wanted another one.
The waiting time between the aperitif and the main course was very long, so I lost my appetite :(
In conclusion, compared to other restaurants in the area, this restaurant doesn't worth the 1st place in Tripadvisor, not even in the top 10!

Don't forget to reserve for this restaurant! A wonderful meal with excellent service - very friendly. I had the risotto and porchini - delicious. Everyone at our table had something different and all were very happy. We also chose a regional wine which was also excellent. We're tempted to go back tonight.

Delightful atmosphere, with well presented healthy food that is nonetheless delicious and interesting. I often meet friends there for lunch. There's a fixed lunch menu with a vegetarian option (just as good). In the evening it is more expensive. Make sure you call to book a table if you want to eat there at lunch time - after midday it fills up very quickly!

Closed for holidays antil 7 july
Very honest, there are different opinion about what you can find in Locarno, old town, right behind Piazza Grande. The Locanda serve great food, respectful of the local traditions, Ticinese food and wines come first. A special mention about the service: perfect, kind, very respectful and never intrusive.
The locanda offer a great example in how things need to be done and motivation to do better!
Obviously, in Switz...you pay for what you get...proportionally...is that fair? I guess so...

Well, we are just the luckiest. Easter Saturday night with no reservation anywhere, and turned away from 4-5 places before finding this gem. Fine food, great wines, excellent service! Every morsel was a delight for the senses, service was exceptional and the wines were delicious. Thoroughly enjoyed every moment of the visit and would recommend it to anyone. Pricey, but worth every penny compared to the nearest competition.
