Osteria del Centenario

Reviewed By matthewbT9247JI

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.

I was at Altulipanobianco with a group of friends, enjoying a good meal before we needed to leave for the final night concerts of the Moon and StarsThe evening was going really well, the place was very comfortable even though there were many people dining and we were making a start on a couple of very good bottles of wine recommended by our waiterAll continued really well although I gather that there was a problem with a computer system which handles food orders - seems there was a delay in relaying orders to the kitchen. Nevertheless it soon seemed to be sorted and our food arrived quite quickly and was truly excellent - exceeding our expectations.All staff were lovely, helpful and efficient, the place had a great atmosphere - we couldn’t ask for anything more.We left for our concert and were offered a complimentary digestivo.So, full marks to Altupipanibianco, a great evening and very professional behaviour from all.I managed to leave a jacket behind and when I went to retrieve it, I met with the manager Alexandro and complimented him on such a delicious meal. He told me that the restaurant was having a good season and that in fact they were investing in a new computer system which should avoid any problems in the future.Full marks to everyone- we will surely return next time we are in Locarno.Dear Daniele,thank you so much for your lovely review and also for your comprehension on our behalf. when the computer system shut down, we really had 10 difficult minutes....Now we solved the problem due to a bug and everything works properly. We are still in very high season and at the present we have the pleasure to experience the vast audience of the 72nd edition of the Locarno Film Festival.We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you again soon (or at least, at your next trip to Switzerland.Best regardsAlessandro CGeneral Manageraltulipanobianco

Cozy and beautiful atmosphere, friendly service and very good food with an original touch. Coffee and drinks are also very good. And considering the quality and the nice, relaxing setting, in Switzerland you don't expect such fair prices. Two thumbs up, but beware of the tartare if you don't like chese: it has Parmesan in it.

The chef has a very good reputation for vegetarian and health food, but I had heard mixed reviews about this new restaurant. The price for the lunch menu was alright for Swiss standards, but the quality of the food was below what we had expected. Service was very slow, especially considering that the dishes were quite simple, nothing extraordinary. Portions were not particularly generous. In conclusion: not good, not bad and thus a bit deceiving. Ciao Flautor, grazie anche a te per la tua recensione.Ognuno di voi ci aiuta a migliorare.Grazie soprattutto per avermi definito chef di buona reputazione per la cucina vegetariana e salutista. Non sono cuoco, sono solo un amante della cucina e del servizio che cerca di offrire un'alternativa valida all'offerta standard cercando di trarne un guadagno sufficiente per resistere e vivere.Mi chiedo però se potessi essere un po' più preciso in merito alla semplicità dei piatti serviti, cosa hai mangiato? cosa ti saresti aspettato in più? e soprattutto se la lentezza del servizio è stato dettato dal numero di clienti da servire. A noi piacerebbe che la gente capisse che per preparare certe tipologie di cibo (seppur semplice) richiede tempo soprattutto quando non si vuole lavorare con semilavorati, prodotti congelati oppure rigenerati velocemente utilizzando metodi di cottura ad onde... non è sicuramente la velocità il nostro prodotto! Noi prepariamo ogni sera per il numero di riservati più un margine ragionevole di avventori dell'ultimo momento... ti lascio immaginare quanto sia difficile calcolare tutto questo per evitare poi soprattutto sprechi. Ultimamente ci ritroviamo ad avere le tre uniche sere di apertura completamente piene, con un servizio abile ma non pronto ad "assedi" del genere! Ti lascio poi immaginare la cucina... a volte tante figure perché quello che abbiamo deciso di proporre come menu termina e dobbiamo inventarci un'alternativa al momento! Oppure che un piatto debba uscire in fretta e furia mio malgrado rinunciando a volte a quell'effetto di forma e gusto che in realtà volevo... in cucina siamo in due a gestire 10 preparazioni circa e nessun lavapiatti...Non so nemmeno se sia il caso di dover dare così tante spiegazioni, il fatto è che è veramente difficile far passare il concetto che la qualità dipende da molti fattori, primo di tutti quello di avvisare quando vuoi cenare in un ristorante di cui conosci la filosofia. Io faccio sempre il paragone di quando vai a mangiare da un amico... se lo avvisi troverai sicuramente qualcosa di particolare o che ti piace, altrimenti ti accontenti di un buonissimo piatto di pasta o di un semplice ma sempre gustoso pezzo di formaggio con un buon pane.Ma come già detto ad un altro recensore non posso pretendere tutto questo dai clienti, quindi cerco di fare del mio meglio. Mi auguro che anche nel tuo caso tu ci possa offrire una seconda possibilità. Per terminare consiglio a tutti di dare un'occhiata al video di Natalino Balasso intitolato Balasso e il cibo, così magari è un po' più facile farmi capire.

We had dinner here, and we liked the modern yet cosy athmosphere of the place. We enjoyed our starters, but the mains not that much. Our curries lacked the fine tuning: They were well salted, but no sweet or sour note that would have made them delicious. Small portions and a sticky sauce didn't add to the experience, either. Since everything else was good, the chef might have had just a bad day.Thank you for choosing our Restaurant; we are sorry to read that our curries did not convince you. Still, we thank you for your criticism, as it always helps us becoming even better.
