Built on one of the most inviting spots of the Piazza of Ascona, overlooking the vistas of the Swiss Alps and the waterfront of Lago Maggiore, Ristorante Seven reflects much of the region versatility. Catering business lunches and romantic dinners to clientele who enjoy the fun and excitement of exploring new culinary experience born out of love for basic raw substance, the restaurant offers fresh and seasonal ingredients and the rich tastes of Mediterranean cuisine. Our chef brings with his young team a bevy of unique inspirations to the menu, allowing guests to explore creative & traditional combinations: Mediterranean antipasti exalting shellfish-flavors, raw fish and meat, fresh homemade pasta and rainbow of risottos – all prepared a la carte. For lovers of grill, we offer a wide variety of cuts from the best Swiss farms prepared in high temperatures to achieve slightly smoky flavor, ensuring a perfect grilling in Josper oven.

Food of poor quality and too expensive for what they offer. I got a crudaiola pasta with practically was a tomato salad with same pasta. Fake Italian food and poor service. The only positive point is the location: it is a pity that this restaurant is so wrongly managed!

Had a great lunch here and would highly recommend this to anyone who likes fine dining. I had the business lunch and was well priced as well. Service had very good attention to detail.

Myself and my wife have been looking forward to visiting restaurant 7 for some time.

I must admit we were both quite disappointed, the first dish was fantastic other than that the food was average for the price we paid.

It was good to try once but would only return for drinks :-(

Very simple: whenever I go for dinner to a restaurant, the Seven in Ascona is our benchmark! We did not find a restaurant that had as good food, nice ambiance and perfect service. A real experience.

Having booked a table here via my local friend we were greeted with warmth and enthusiasm. The team were truly experienced and very much wanted to serve us. The food was very carefully selected for its season availability.

The location of the restaurant is truly breath taking, with views across the lake outstanding. Food was perfect, a bit pricy at around £130 per head for three courses including wine, however the quality of the food was divine!
