“The worst mojito in Europe!”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

Round about 7.30 pm we walked into the "garden" by the bar and were greeted cordially and shown to a table near the "fountain" which served as a pleasant backdrop. We asked for a tomato juice with more lemon and angostura than is usual but with the few usual drops of lee & perrins worchestershire sauce and a pinch of salt. It was served up to the table with a carrot and my partner thought it was spicy enough and really good. The mojito I asked for on the other hand wasn't a mojito it had no crushed ice just a couple of ice cubes, leafy mint not cruched no brown sugar no trace of lime but yes, there was only a faint trace of bacardi and plain water...Shocking .the worst I have ever had!!!

“Stunning outdoor cocktails”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Even in February the heaters mean you can sit outside in Art Deco splendour listening to the gurgling of the fountains and some chilled music and enjoying a cocktail. Perhaps not as grand as the Jardin de Russie but unique, special and full of character. Well worth a visit if you have an evening to spare in Rome or need an after dinner drink.

“Chic”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

Sitting on a chair in the Bar at the Hotel Locarno feels like being back to the '20s. Well, I wasn't born yet in the 20's but that's what I always imagined it would be like...

The atmosphere is relaxed, the decor is classic chic, the music induces to unwind and enjoy the drinks and food at a slower pace than the one of the life outside the building. No need to ask for a menu, just ask for suggestions, everything is perfectly tailored for the customer.

The drinks are well done, promptly served by efficient and polite servers, the food provided during the "aperitivo" time is much more than snacks

The best time to go? You chose.
