One of the very few restaurants I have eaten at that does not base its business around tourists, which makes it very nice to be frank. Authentic Tuscan cuisine, helpful staff who will translate the menu for you since it is all in Italian, and btw tables are all sharing tables so don't be surprised.

We enjoy dinner at this restaurant every time we are at the Lago Maggiore and every time the meal is outstanding. Guiseppe and Heike are amazing hosts, the atmosphere is romantic (ripe Americano grapes above our heads smelled divine). A must on every sophisticated diners list.

This is our second visit to Osteria dell Enoteca this year. The first one, a few weeks ago was during a rainy day and so we sat inside. The dining room is cute. We had a delicious lunch, very good service by Mr. Greco, the new owner since July 2014. Regretfully in the same room there was a group of... More

This beautiful restaurant in the centre of Losone is absolutely worth visiting both for its atmosphere and its amazing and original food. The service was super friendly. The very accomplished cook didn't mind, however, to prepare a simple fish and mash patatoes for my picky children. Great place to spend the evening.

This restaurant has been a great surprise after getting soaked by a non-stop rain. The lam was amazing, great wine selection and very good service. A place to return!

Have been here a few times and the food is always excellent and different. The chef, Mathias, is very creative and passionate about what he serves. He often prepares specials on the day which are well worth enquiring about. Lovely setting, inside or outside in summer. Well worth a visit.

really more impressed than last time. The restaurant they took over in Losone is another style and atmosphere, completely different but so cosy. The cooking is as usual superb, unexpected and you eat with taste and joy! Also the desserts, baked and prepared by Elvira are superlative every time.

High prices for small portions were not unexpected for this kind of top end restaurant (16 points on Gault-Millau, although last year it had 17), and the food was indeed good, refined and elegantly presented with a sofisticated touch of molecular cuisine. I can't complain about the service either: quite friendly. Unfortunately, the atmosphere was deceiving: the place feels a... More

I had never met the owners in person but had communicated with them about the restaurant, which deservedly has 1 Michelin star. I went with my wife specifically to Losone and this restaurant since unbeknownst to the owners, I was one of the potential investors. We went into many restaurants in the Locarno-Ascona-Losone area as restauranteur investors (like Osteria-Grotto Broggini... More
