We just enjoyed another great meal at Restaurant Sensi in Locarno. The choice of meals is good. I could have eaten almost every item on the menu. The children get a special menu.
The quality of the food is excellent. It's not cheap, but it's worth spending a bit more.
Service is excellent. They treat all customers, with or without children, the same. We will return for sure.

We come here quite regularly when we visit Muralto/Locarno. We had our Christmas lunch there this year (2012).
The place is nicely decorated and is a mix of a "dorf stube" and a modern restaurant. One of the nice touches (I find anyway) is that you can have a look in the kitchen through a large window. This makes the place extra lively.
The lunch was from an excellent quality. Not to heavy but definitely appropriate portions. The staff was very friendly and forthcoming.
They do two wine lists. One small one where you can choose wine by the glass and a more extensive one where you order bottles.
The wines by the glass are usually of good quality and surely no less than most of the bottles.

So overall a great place but you do pay.

On my first visit (winter) I had a very good experience here: excellent food in an upper price range. It was worth the money paid.
On my second visit (summer), although I was able to enjoy the nice terrace with a lake view, the food was very average and lacking flavor, and the selection was much less interesting then the dishes proposed for the winter season. Prices remained as high as before.

Our server was extremely cordial with us and made our teen kids feel very comfortable. The food was excellent. We had outdoor seating. The restaurant has a view of Lake Maggiore

If you're in Locarno, this is by far the best restaurant, with consistently great food, service and a lovely atmosphere. It's located right on the lake and is very popular with both tourists and locals. Make sure you book ahead in the summer time.
