Perfect courtyard setting if the weather is dry and warm. We had the tasting menu with matching wines - expensive but superb. Service was comprehensive yet unobtrusive, again just what a top restaurant should provide. Highly recommended, just take out a mortgage before you go!

Ate at the Locanda on our second evening in Ascona. The service was excellent in helping us change the existing menu to our liking. Although pricey, it is worth every penny.

We stayed at the Castello del Sole in July and ended two wonderful dinners at the Locanda Barbarossa. The food was excellent, the service was impeccable and the setting under the gables was beautiful - highly recommended.
