Very delicious pizzas...friendly service, place is nice and clean... The location is perfect if you want to be away from the crowds. Within walking distance from the train station(15 min) and many attractions... The castle and old town

This is a simple no-nonsense place. The menu offers almost exclusively their brick-oven pizzas, and some gelatos. The staff is efficient and courteous, and the terrace is spacious, quiet and enjoyable although not offering any stunning views of Locarno's old town. The pizza however really is worth going there! Very tasty, the dough remains crusty even when the pizza is... More

Attracted by TripAdvisor's comments, went to look for a place. Full house of locals, a good number of waitresses, and everything went very pleasantly from being very hungry to feeling properly stuffed. Standard pizza selection. My Diavola came with the thin crispy bottom and really plenty of salami etc, maybe would have benefited of some generosity with mozzarella to offer... More

We arrived at the pizzeria around 7pm, just early enough to get a table without reservation. The menu offers pizza only (and lasagne), don't expect to have risotto or scaloppine. It took a while for the food to be served (busy evening), the pizza was very good. After dinner we went to have a look at the gelati. They didn't... More

Located in the beautiful old part of the city, the Citta Vecchia, it overlooks the Piazza San Francesco. We didn't eat here, but it was a nice place to stop for a drink.

Arrived in Locarno on a (unfortunately) rainy day and came directly here. Pizza was best we've had in Italy (and Switzerland). Crust is excellent, as was the ham. Highly recommend this place.

Restaurant interior design is average. But the pizza is great. Very nice is, that it is cooked in a wood oven. Staff is friendly and prices are fair.

Ice cream here is simply great. I especially appreciated the yoghurt one which will disperse any doubts about home made: you'll never get this taste with industrial milk. At the same time, better not to come here for a pizza dinner. These guys manage to make it unplatable. Too dry pastry and filling without inspiration and harmony between ingridients.
