We had an evening dinner with family, celebrating a birthday. We were greatly welcomed and passed a wonderful moment in a very nice & romantic setup out on the terrace. We had great recommendations for both food & wine and enjoyed our stay. The degustation...menu is an excellent choice for who wants to try new menus and tastes. Thank you very much for this great evening and your passion! We will definitively return soon.More

A cordial welcome was followed by a tastefully decorated interior, the most pleasant and attentive service, and creative and delicious food. Certainly a place to revisit next time we're in the region!

This was the last restaurant we visited during our 2 week vacation and this place had been on my bucket list for a long time! They have a very romantic terrasse and very friendly and attentive staff. We had the 4 course menu which costs...Fr. 89 per person. The food was good but not as special as I had expected. Moreover the portions were so small that we were still hungry when we left.. gourmet places like this unfortunately keep disappointing me and in my opinion they are not worth the money they cost. Of course, this is just my humble opinion. I love gourmet food but of a less sophisticated and more genuine kind of style. This experience just confirmed it once again..More

We have stopped here for lunch, the place has a gorgeous yard, very pleasant atmosphere and great service. They had degustation menu only: tartar, pasta, fish, beef, dessert! You could choose any or all. All dishes were visually beautiful and tasted divine. Emma speaks Italian,...German, English and was very helpful. We stayed for awhile as we felt so comfy. If you are somewhere in the area, go and try this place out! Little gem! We will be back!More

We enjoyed dinner here with another couple, and we were truly blown away by the entire experience. We had arrived a bit early and there was not a table available for us, so we were given a place in the wine room and complimentary glass...of champagne to enjoy while we waited. Once seated, all of us enjoyed the 5 course tasting which was truly phenomenal, only to be complimented by wonderful wine from their extensive list. Each dish was fantastic! After our meal, we had a wonderful cheese plate to share and the staff suggested a fantastic, unique strawberry wine to pair. From start to finish, we enjoyed the entire experience and can not wait to return!More

Tucked away in the old town of Losone, this cosy, welcoming and charming restaurant serves up inventive and delectable dishes including an 'omakase' menu. The accompanying wine list is well chosen and the service is friendly and professional. Highly recommended!

Warm welcoming setting, friendly and efficient service (in English) We took the surprise menu with matching wines, a true culinary journey. A very pure beef tartare, accompanied by a subtle mineral white merlot from Ticino (a discovery) Exquisite feasant ravioli, with a surprising but evenly...exquisite rosé merlot from the village The tenderest deer fillet, with a primitivo from Puglia An elegantly revisited "zuppa inglese" concluded a great dining experience.

One of the very few restaurants I have eaten at that does not base its business around tourists, which makes it very nice to be frank. Authentic Tuscan cuisine, helpful staff who will translate the menu for you since it is all in Italian, and...btw tables are all sharing tables so don't be surprised.More

This is our second visit to Osteria dell Enoteca this year. The first one, a few weeks ago was during a rainy day and so we sat inside. The dining room is cute. We had a delicious lunch, very good service by Mr. Greco, the...new owner since July 2014. Regretfully in the same room there was a group of 6 who were a bit loud and in the small room every word reverberates. This time it was sunny and we had our lunch in the front courtyard. Once again the food was cooked to perfection and well presented. Although the selection is quite short, Mr Francioli, the cook is willing to prepare something off the menu. The wine list is impressive, but we just had a very good half bottle of the white house wine. We will certainly return to this restaurant soon.More

This beautiful restaurant in the centre of Losone is absolutely worth visiting both for its atmosphere and its amazing and original food. The service was super friendly. The very accomplished cook didn't mind, however, to prepare a simple fish and mash patatoes for my picky...children. Great place to spend the evening.More
