“We liked it so much we returned twice”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

Great choice of menu. Fresh local seasonal dishes. Friendly and helpful waiting staff. We ate here the first night and loved the venison main course and the limoncello icecream dessert. Tried two other restaurants on the 2nd and 3rd nights - nowhere near as good - so returned to DiVino for our 4th and last nights. We tried various different dishes and were never disappointed.

“Friendly service”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

Although the restaurant was not busy the service was very friendly and speedy. We all had different pizzas. They were all absolutely massive and the bases were very light. The fillings were very tasty.
The ambience in the restaurant was pleasant and they had a good range of wines. The coffee was delicious too.
The wash rooms are very clean but are downstairs and people with mobility problems might find this difficult.
We thought the prices were very reasonable for a restaurant of this quality in a lovely location on the edge of the lake.

“Great view and food.”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

A lovely restaurant with a good atmosphere. You can choose portion size depending on how hungry you are. The staff are friendly and attentive. Our waiter wasn't the most friendliest, however a good dining experience non the less.

“Blah Pizza”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

On our first night in Locarno we were looking forward to sampling some Ticinese food and chose this restaurant as its menu covered everything from seafood and steak to pizza and pasta. In the end we decided on pizza and were disappointed. The pizza dough tasted very flat or blah; it simply had no flavor. Likewise, the cheese was also a bit flavorless. We did notice, albeit too late, that most other patrons were enjoying dishes other than pizza. The ambiance, however, was enjoyable with a nice outdoor terrace across from the Muralto seaside on Lake Maggiore. The moral of the story here is to wait until you are in Italy to have pizza.

“Sadly the customer doesn't come first!”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

We visited this restaurant three times during our stay in Locarno. Excellent position with shaded outside seating with a great view across the lake. Good food. Sadly they showed their true colours [and total lack of consideration/customer service] on our third visit. We arrived, ordered drinks and our meal [warm]. Our drinks arrived and we waited. After a while we were informed that there had been a local power cut and we should wait. We waited. Other diners arrived and placed their orders. We waited. Other diners arrived and placed their orders.We waited. Other diners arrived and placed their orders.... No explanations. No updates. No 'would you like another drink?' No 'please help yourself to the salad bar whilst the problem is sorted out'. Nothing!
After well over an hour's wait we decided to leave [and had a very nice pizza nearby!] All we received was a pathetic 'sorry', no attempt to placate us or keep us there and no reduction in the drinks bill. A shame that they can't look after their customers as everything else is positive.
