Very nice guormet restaurant.

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.

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 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

First of all, let me note that some of the reviews which you find below are clearly NOT about this restaurant but maybe of another Ascona restaurant of the Seven Group. They for sure do NOT serve pizza here but only high-class gourmet food in 5, 6 or 7 courses. The fun part is that for each course, you get... More

Very stylish place and we were looking very much ahead to enjoy Ivo Adams great cooking skills. We were not disappointed and the food is great as well as the experience. having a "starter" with every course is making this place unique. Anytime again in Ascona or Zermatt

Despite our overall disappointment, we must mention that there are many positive aspects to this restaurant. Above all the staff - we had drinks there the night before our dinner and found the staff very cheerful, happy, service minded and hard working. Especially the waiter Domenico is a gem and truly saved our evening. He is a great asset to... More

We went upon a recommendation of a friend. The surprise 3 and 5 course meal if 2 people are ordering should be different in my opinion...and maybe the portions could be just a tiny bit bigger - luckily the little tastings in between the main dishes helped (otherwise I think I would say I'd be leaving a bit hungry and...
