as it was raining cats and dogs, we stayed in the hotel's restaurant. that was not the best choice. overall a meal which I had the impression was made of convenience food. no taste, not really fresh (salad of my wife). just the french fries were good.

If you want a table which alows you to look on the Piazza "from the nice side" (without too many ugly buildings in the picture) and you want to be able to choose from a large menu and have options for local dishes, then this is the place to go.
Very friendly service, a waiter of croatian origin took care of us and was just perfect.
Huge portions, good pizza, vegetables unfortunately overcooked and not tasty, but all in all we'd come back!

We chose this place for an emergency dinner on a Sunday night in Locarno, inspired by the not-so-bad rating of the previous Tripadvisor reviewers. Taste like Italy??!! I am Italian and this is so not true!! The pizza was below the Swiss average (including the German-speaking Switzerland), the focaccina was pure cardboard and the Ticinese starter was an offense (quality worse than cheap supermarket). If you need useless calories, please help yourself.

We've just recently had dinner at this restaurant and were disappointed. We've been customers for many years but lately the service gets worse. The food is ok. Typical Italian cuisine: all kinds of pasta, pizza, Lasagne, Gnocchi, etc. The quantity is good (nobody goes hungry). The price is even better. But.. the service is the weak link. If the service would be better, this restaurant would be one of the best in Locarno. Unfortunately there are not too many restaurants at Piazza Grande and therefore people go there all the same. It's just a pity that they are so used to many customers that they forget the simple forms of service (don't clear the plates while people at the same table are still eating, pour the drinks into the glasses, bring the salad before you serve the main dish etc etc.).
