Nice place for a drink

Located in the beautiful old part of the city, the Citta Vecchia, it overlooks the Piazza San Francesco. We didn't eat here, but it was a nice place to stop for a drink.

Arrived in Locarno on a (unfortunately) rainy day and came directly here. Pizza was best we've had in Italy (and Switzerland). Crust is excellent, as was the ham. Highly recommend this place.

Restaurant interior design is average. But the pizza is great. Very nice is, that it is cooked in a wood oven. Staff is friendly and prices are fair.

Ice cream here is simply great. I especially appreciated the yoghurt one which will disperse any doubts about home made: you'll never get this taste with industrial milk. At the same time, better not to come here for a pizza dinner. These guys manage to make it unplatable. Too dry pastry and filling without inspiration and harmony between ingridients.

We stopped here at lunch on a Monday & were very happy with our lunch. I had a mixed salad (typical with lettuce, corn,tomatoes, beets, fennel & carrots. He had the margarita pizza, thin crust, napolitana style-AMAZING, fast, fabulous. Service was good, too!

Once in a while I stop at the Primavera for a quick pizza or an ice cream. Not bad, it's in front of the hospital and there is a bit of traffic but not that bothersome.

The pizza was the best we had in the whole Ticino area. Toppings were fresh and generous. The Vegetarian and the Hawaiian pizzas were great. Atmosphere was average.
