Sunday lunch at Seven with friends out from London proved to be a fantastic choice! The stunning location, set slightly apart and impressively elevated, commands a great view over the harbour and picturesque village of Ascona - making it perfect for seeing and being seen. The atmosphere is relaxed and dare I say, international. The interior, with its huge terrance... More

Italian and upmarket version of the different Seven restaurants available and therefore much more pricey. The portion sizes are definitely small, but the food was truly tasty. I had a delicious bouillabaisse and mushroom ravioli dish. The restaurant has a pleasant view over the lake and you can eat inside or outside. It is stylish and the staff were friendly,... More

We had a few drinks before dinner at their bar on the lake. Really chilled out! Then at about 9pm we moved up to our table. The food was great, well presented and great quality. A definite visit while in Ascona. Amazing green pea gazpacho!

Based on the recommendation of friends, we made reservations at Ristorante Seven to celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary together with family, friends and even our in-training service puppy dog as well. It was truly wonderful! The service so, so attentive, - wonderful setting and ambiance and the food, simply to die for, down to the very last bite. Mille grazie... More

I chose 3 courses menu with diverse fishes. For apitizer I had fish tar tar with lime. It was pretty well matched sliced asparagus with pistaccio. And for main course I chose a steak. It was absoultly soft and good. Served bread was good and fresh. But it was little pricy.

I really like this place. The restaurant manager, Andrea Ponnozzo, is outstanding and he has created an environment where you really feel like a personal guest. He had seen me once and recognized me walking around town in Ascona - when does that happen? The service is attentive and personal without being overbearing. The space is wonderful - a modern...

We visited Ascona in the summer and were delighted to be able to book a table at Seven and explore Ivo Adams' culinary promises. But we were disappointed. Service started on the wrong foot and was off all night: drinks ( water and wine) spilled on table or guests at every refill. Long waits. Nothing near the service offered in... More
