The room was beautiful with golden chandeliers. The service was relaxed, thoughtful and knowledgable. Watching the team of waiters bringing out dishes for another table sometimes reminded me of contemporary dance. The food was out of this world, and the wine too. What an amazing evening. Thanks to the team.

Had a fabulous evening, in the style I would hope for from a 2 Michelin star place: superb service, a flurry of amuse-bouches meaning more like 12 than 6 courses, and absolutely beautiful little dishes esthetically and through the right (and not over-complicated) flavor combinations. One of the best wine pairings sets that I have had. Better value for money... More

Five of us chose to allow the chef to choose our small plates and surprise us. Following a series beautiful gifts from the kitchen that entertained all senses our series of small plates were served. All of them suggested miniature gardens, precious gems or objets d'art. Not only did they engage one's visual senses, but also one's taste, smell and... More

Though extremely expensive, it was worth - once in a life - to dine there. Every single dish looks perfect and feels like a dream. Service more than perfect, very friendly and forthcoming.

We celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary with dinner at Ecco and the evening could not have been more wonderful. The atmosphere was very relaxed and the food!!... Chef Rolf Fliegauf is a culinary wizard. The combinations were unique but not bizarre and the portions generous. Every bite was delicious perfection. We ordered a 5 course meal but had about 12...

We returned to the Giardino for lunch but as we did not wanted to eat at the pool restaurant, we were asked to lunch in the 2* Michelin gourmet restaurant of the hotel, Ecco. While the interior design is more suitable for dinner, the food was amazing and the lunch menu for CHF 50 per person is a real treat.... More

I have visited the Ecco restaurant to celebrate the 40 years old' birthday of my boyfriend. For this occasion, I wanted to find the best restaurant of the region and we have found the best we have ever tried. The service was perfect, the tastes were so well defined, the presentation so raffined and sometimes surprising, the ambiance was posh... More

I have been to several two and three star restaurants and Ecco is equal with the best I have been to (Akelare in San Sebastian) The focus is on local sourcing where possible, taste and texture Try it if you are in Ticino over the summer as the restaurant closes for the winter It's not cheap but you will have...
