“Good food and service”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

The food was good. The waiters were friendly would give good advises and spoke several languages (Italian, German, English, French). Nice view, place and decoration.
Worth booking in advance.

“A hidden gem close to Locarno train station!”
Reviewed 2 February 2014 via mobile

We had a delicious and creative New Year's Eve dinner here - from fried polenta triangles with cod to scallops to veal, everything was just perfect! The wine selection was also very good, and the service was delightful.
There's a beautiful terrace which should be lovely in spring/summer.
A definitive YES for Il Malatesta!

“Very nice atmosphere and good food”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

Spend a nice evening next to the open fire. The atmosphere is very nice, especially for a romantic couple dinner. Price are Swiss prices - quite expensive

Food: small menu, good, but not fantastic, Pricey
Wine: small, but good collection. Should have more local wines from Tecino & Italia
Service: Friendly and active
