“Nice spot excellent food, incredible vistas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

High up above Locarno in the Monti area is the quaint La Chiesa Restaurant. The owner - chef is from northern Switzerland and he mixes international, Swiss and Italian cuisine in an artfull way. Every dish we tried was outstanding in taste and presentation. Some of his appetizers were quite innovative. The restaurant is samll but very tasteful decorated. Service is perfect and the wine selection astonishing. This is not a low cost trattoria or Grotto and the bill at the end of the meal can be steep. Nevertheless its worthwhile and you pay the price for outstanding cuisine, top service and a setting who's view is breathtaking.

“a top chef-kok”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

you tast what the chef makes and what the sous chefs makes. Excellent main corses and excellent wines. Only the prices are a bit to expensive. So for switserland is the price/quality ok, for the people out of the rest of Europe maybe a littlebit to expensive.
