Grotto Broggini

Reviewed By Tom_from_Austria

We have been to this Grotto for dinner on a sunday eve (18:45).. we did not have a reservation but still got a table directly... we ordered sparerips and roast beef with typical polenta.. a nice small bottle of Amarone wine and big bottle of water and later Tiramisu and maroni cake with ice cream for dessert... everything was tasty and the service/staff very quick and attentive... finally bit pricey with about 140 CHF... but at the end of the day it was a nice evening in a nice location .... we will come again

Das Ristorante Costas Azzurra wird seit dem 1.März 2017 vom langjährigen Küchenchef Stefan Burkhalter weitergeführt. Familie Schwyn ist glücklich diese Lösung gefunden zu haben, denn somit ist die langjährige Kontinuität gewährleistet.

A great place to dine, to laugh, joke, relax.Elegant but simple, clean, great staff, lovely stone tables, very well kept grounds. Lovely atmosphere inside and out. Quality food, the best meat on the market. Finish off your filet at your table on the hot stone, fries nice and crispy not the usual oily stuff.Great wines. Fabulous fondues served with mouth watering home made sauces.

Very nice restaurant with typical dishes from the area, accessible by car or a (longer) walk from Ascona. Especially recommendable for an early dinner on a hot day, just great to sit under big trees and still see the sun shining on the opposite hillside...Price/value ratio is also very good.

Albergo Colmanicchio

Reviewed By thewanderer300

When we arrived after visiting The Cimata via chairlift, we walked into a Swiss Gem. Herr Stocker attended to our every need even if we only ordered 2 cappuccinos which came decorated immaculately and one portion of Ticanese bread cake that was more than enough for two people and delicious. When we were leaving, Herr Stocker gave us his card. This place has also good accommodation. I would have no problems coming back here, even to avail of the accommodation. 5 stars well earned!!!!

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.

An elegant, beautiful fine dining restaurant. Both entrées were very good, with the ravioli with quark and leek in a mushroom sauce being the standout. The il misto di Pesce was a delicious assortment of 5 different fish and shellfish. My husband was slightly less impressed with his veal with morels and said he felt hungry afterwards which is very unusual for him. Service overall was good, but lost focus towards the end of our meal. The only minor negative was that the waiter insisted that service was not included in the bill: even though as a Swiss I know that it is mandated by Federal law (passed some 35 years ago) that service is included throughout Switzerland. A relaxing and enjoyable evening. Recommend.

We live in these parts and have been wanting to try La Chiesa for some time now. This 14-point Gault-Millau restaurant is located in a beautifully restored church perched on the hillside overlooking Locarno. The Christmas menu included 4 courses (with amuse-bouche starter) - moist fish roulade with truffles, homemade al dente ravioli, juicy duck breast with a vegetable purée, and a nut roulade with homemade gelato to finish. Each dish was perfectly prepared, flavorful and pleasing to the eye. The wine list includes some interesting local choices, the service was friendly and attentive, the view spectacular. Worthy of its rating.

Ristorante Bottega del Vino

Reviewed By Tim B

I love good wine and this place really hit the spot for me. My italian is horrible, and their english bad, but we made it work (thank you google translate).Not very busy on a rainy Friday night, so I sat at a table looking over the wine collection - just beautiful - wished my wife and friends who are enophiles could have joined me. I had the local merlot (house wine) and it was great! and reasonable. They had quite the wine selection and you could spend big bucks for the really expensive stuff they had.I had the steak frittes (steak with french fries), can't remember the italian name. Steak was sliced and placed on a warming tray at my table, simmering in garlic butter sauce. I dipped the bread in the sauce when they weren't looking - awesome!!!Really good steak (which I have a hard time finding in Europe) cooked to perfection (rare to medium rare) and great flavor on the sauce. Served with an absolute mountain of thin cut french fries.Grumpy old guy rating: Two thumbs WAY UP!
