“Great food, nice setting but a bit pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

Nevertheless worth a visit if you are not on a budget. I had the specials a few times and they were always good. The taste is fantastic but as I said I thought a bit pricey but that seems the be the case in most of Switzerland. But then again, you do always get quality and at this place it is the same. Nostrana in Ascona has I believe the same owner but I prefer the one in Ascona because of the setting which I find even better. Service there is a little bit less friendly than at Sensi. But for this area both are good places to go.

“Superb outdoor dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

What can be better than to dine in the wonderful outdoor setting on a balmy spring night with fine food and excellent service. The Tiramisu was superb, as was the cognac!
A delightful meal but I felt a little too expensive for what we had.

“Good Locarno Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

Had shortlisted this restauran on the lake front for our day trip to Locarno.
That day turned out to be the best weatherwise during our week in Lago Maggiore area, so we were happy to find an outside table during busy lunch time. Had good tagliatelle primavera and
fresh strawberries. Polite and efficient service as one would expect in Switzerland. Obviously the price leve was Swiss, but this is what we expected.

“Wonderful!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

The food is terrific here! Everything was wonderfully cooked with some creative touches. The service was also very good as was the local wine. Very nice astmosphere too. Its prices are consistant with other Locarno restaurants. Wish it was closer so that we eat there more often.

“Great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013 via mobile

We booked a table for lunch. The service was pleasant and efficient; the food was very tasty and obviously freshly homemade (since you can see into the kitchen behind a glass). We had carbonara and ceasar salad, and a delicious sabayon for desert. In the kitchen, the cooks seemed happy to be there. In the restaurant, the owner was going around with friendly words, and the servers seemed also to enjoy working there. All this contributed to a great lunch.
