This is a gem in Locarno! So glad to have found it on our first night there. We enjoyed a wonderful risotto and went back again for another dinner of delish pasta and polenta. Can highly recommend this place. Service is impeccable and the quality of food amazing. The manager remembered and came to greet us the second night. Anytime... More

Have been there several times over the last few years and was never disappointed. Great location with views of the lake and nice seating. The food is very good however a little on the expensive side. It is worth going to and enjoy the surroundings.

We were in Locarno and walked a few steps away from the port to find ourselves in the twin city of Muralto. Although the Senzi restaurant belongs to a chain, it has the feel of a family-run restaurant. In summer most of the people have their lunch in the open air garden under trees on the opposite side of the... More

An excellent selection of pasta and salads . All salads fresh produce and lovely flavours. Suggest dining inside to avoid the smokers in the outdoor... More
