Osteria Colibri

Reviewed By Timothy B

Decided to catch bus 316 from Ascona to Brissago to see what I would see.Passing all the houses built into the cliffs of the lakeside at a million an apartment I arrive in Brissago Surprise surprise not much was open so having bought a cigar from the cigar factory I found a restaurant with the view of the lakeAt first I was the only guest and asked what I could have? Spaghetti, Lasagna or chopSo I had a mixed salad and Lasagna. Safe standard food which was good but nothing specialThe section with the lake view was closed but I was next two a impressive open fire place which though it had started to snow was not lit. Shame I saw the owner who did everything heat up my lasagna and serve meWith drink and coffee 32 ChfIt might be better in other circumstances.

Grotto La Risata

Grotto la Risata is a typical swiss italian grotto, you will be able to find it in the swiss telephone directory and probably in the tourist guide. The new owners are Simon and Jacky.

We’ve been to Grotto La Risata to taste the typical dishes of the region. Couldn’t be more satisfied!! The entire experience was stunning from the moment we stepped in. Perfect location, wonderful outside terrace, good ambience and cheerful owner. Average prices, surely worth it. Definitely recommended!!

This restaurant specialises in cooking whole fish in solid salt. They also provide several other fish options as well as meat dishes.Set on the lakeside with tables outside one can enjoy the view with dinner. We enjoyed our evening but felt that this was more of a local's restaurant. Most people who came knew one another and we were the odd ones out. Hence the ambience was not as pleasant as I would like.The wine list was not available on the web so I was concerned that it may be too pricey, in fact there are a good range of options including a basic range of local wines at reasonable prices.Gentile Cliente, La ringraziamo per la sua visita presso l' Osteria Boato.Raramente in una stagione succede che in una stessa serata la clientela sua tutta abituale o comunque di nostra conoscenza. Ci dispiace che questo vi abbia fatto sentire a disagio.All our prices are visible on our Web-site and on our Menu. We thank you very much for your visit and wish you all the best. We thank you very much for your visit. Corinna e Andrea

My wife and I had a terrific lunch in all regards. The service was prompt, attentive and friendly without being intrusive. The setting on the terrace with the view across Lago Maggiore and the general ambience were very nice as well. However, the excellent food is the real star. We each chose to have the three-course menu, which had been recently set for autumn. We found each of our dishes to be excellent: rabbit liver pate, hazelnut-encrusted venison, and peach tarte with caramel ice cream. We’re currently planning when will be our next visit.Dear travelin-tommy, warm thanks for your great review. We are happy you had a terrific experience at our restaurant. Besides our daily changing 4-course menu, we have a quiet large menu card which we adapt about every 3 months, according to the season. The autumn menu card, which proposes also game, has just been set in the beginning of September and you were the first to taste it We are looking forward to seeing you soon again at the Collinetta for one more tasty lunch or dinner. Sunny regards.

Great plus the restaurant is open all day. Many places close between 2-6pm. The food was just OK, dry meat, not fresh tomatoes, salad not really crispy. Would recommend for a quick lunch only.

Ristorante Al Fresco

Reviewed By 637louiseh

I live nearby and Al Fresco is my go-to eatery when I don't feel like cooking. Why? Good food, friendly service and an amazing view of Laggo Maggiore. The pizzas and risottos are delish (especially the red wine risotto with radicchio and mullet) but the sizzling steak on a hot stone is my dish of choice - perfectly grilled and served with home fries and seasonal veggies. This is one of the best spots to eat in the area and well worth the drive or short walk uphill from town.

The location is beautiful with the lake view and the small park. The restaurant was absolutely full. When we arrived, we were ask to wait a while on a sofa and we were offered an aperitive on the house.It was asparagus season, so tried some asparagus. Addditionally veal and pasta. All food was well made from good ingredients. Some of the asparagus had a hard end that should normally be cut out, but it was still good. Service was friendly and lively.Grazie mille per la vostra visita al Gabietta.Siamo contenti che abbiate potuto apprezzare l’aperitivo, in attesa di un tavolo per poter cenare, ammirando il magnifico panorama che abbiamo la fortuna di avere a Brissago.Un caro saluto Simonne e Massimo

This restaurant was recommended and we weren’t disappointed. It’s a charming informal place with great food and outstanding views.You drive up to it from Brissago and the views of the lake and the mountains on the way up and from the restaurant are amazing.You can eat inside which has a rustic atmosphere and it full of character or, weather permitting outside where you get the views.The menu was small with mainly local specialities and everything was freshly cooked and delicious.The restaurant is family owned and they thrive to make everything perfect....it’s a magical place.Advisable to book. I think it’s about to close for the winter till spring.
