I ate dinner one night in June at the Antico Ristorante Borromeo and was extremely disappointed by both the food and the service. I started with an appetizer of buffalo mozzarella with tomato. Served with a tiny garnish of red lettuce, it was topped with too much oil and without any seasoning – no basil, no herbs of any sort,... More

We didn't make reservations, and when we arrived around 8:15, the restaurant was full. We stood around for about 5 minutes until a waiter told us to come back in 30 - 40 minutes. We walked around the town and came back around 9:00 and were glad we did. We split a salad misto and I had the branzino which... More

Wide variety of local dishes, cooked to perfection. We had a tiramisu which was so nice that we ordered a second one. Service was also friendly and helpful. Only expected a more "antico" atmosphere, though the existing one is really fine. Prices were reasonable, lower than in locarno.

The atmosphere is like homecooking but the dishes are on a different Level. Perfect Service and tasty and creative dishes. The Tagliatelle Vongole were great. Just a good olive oil makes the difference! The served white in the carafe was a surprise as well. The chimney spent some warmth and added a special feeling. All in all good food in... More

We usually spend three to four breaks a year in Ascona. It's far more difficult to find restaurants that are open all year round, and the Antico Ristorante Borromeo is one of them. In winter, it's the wonderful atmosphere inside (with a large fireplace) - almost as if you're at someone's large dining room at home. In the warmer part... More

I travel to Ascona twice a year and have eaten at this restaurant many times. I have never been disappointed. The food is excellent. The two brothers, Bruno and Isolino, who run the restaurant are always there and make you feel right at home. Ask one of them to suggest a wine with dinner, their choices for me have been... More

One of the best restaurants in Ascona, with an excellent italian menu. The restaurant is set in a beautiful garden and also has some indoor seating. The service is very good and the staff were very friendly to us and our children.
