Osteria Ferrioli has a good name for his meats! From different beefs to kudu, the choice is great! Fresh from the grill with some potatoes and vegetables, a nice glass of wine and the Ticinese Air! What do you want more! If you go there, I recommend the risotto with fois gras as appetizer!

If you love meat, a friendly atmosphere and a good Swiss and Italian red wine selection, Ferriroli is the place to go. Antonio manages the grill - which includes delicacies like fasona piemontese and chianina - and Patricia keeps a tight control on the tables. Take the apero outside, look @ the view and give your tastebuds free rein!

We were lucky enough to be there in the truffle season. The weather was great so we sat outside on a stone table near the fireplace where... More

Set in the hills behind Locarno. Ferriroli offers a great menu of meats from Switzerland and beyond. Don't miss the risotto on offer! Probably the best I have tasted. Very friendly staff, the owners of the restaurant are active in the restaurant with Mr. F doing all the BBQ and Mrs. F ensuring the restaurant runs smoothly, she also has... More
