We were 10 people during International Film Festival in Locarno. We tried Gazpacho soup, green salad with mango and prawns, beef tenderloin with mix of fresh vegetables, lamb cutlets, oven potateos and gratin... JUST as said, atmosphere, service & dishes absolutely as you wish it to be! LOVED IT!

Small, but interesting card with some attention to vegetarians too. Food looks and tastes absolutely fresh, fashionably arranged without wanting to impress. We tried fish with delicicious vinaigrette, tasty herbs-crusted rack of lamb, seasonal veggies and small cheese selection. Everything lovely. To mention, service & courtesy at it's top! We will be back.

For the main course at lunch you can choose between two options. Besides that, you have the option of adding a starter and/or a dessert. Service... More

Delightful atmosphere, with well presented healthy food that is nonetheless delicious and interesting. I often meet friends there for lunch. There's a fixed lunch menu with a vegetarian option (just as good). In the evening it is more expensive. Make sure you call to book a table if you want to eat there at lunch time - after midday it...

This restaurant employs up to 20 disabled people and aims to train them in the kitchen, as serving staff, etc. There is a daily set lunch of three courses with a veggy option. Although a short walk from the city centre it is well worth finding and supporting this place. We've eaten there many times and always been impressed by... More
