We had dinner here at the end of September. The food was amazing! Very fresh and local ingredients with beautiful presentation. Loved hte risotto! And surprise tapa ravioli complements of the chef! A very good value too. We would certainly go back if we return to Merano!

Red some negative reviews and had to disagree. The house was packed and three guys were running the show with grace, food superb. Wine though was not in stock that I wanted, but that is my luck - I don't get mostly what I want no matter the country. The suggestion of replacement was as good as I thought the... More

Super fresh and good food. Nice and efficient service. You sit on a little terrace in the street with no traffic. We liked it and we'll come back!

7 is one of our favourite restaurants. The food is always incredible; the chefs clearly understand flavour and taste combinations. There is a classy feel to the interior and the service is always top notch. Stefan is one of the best waiters, attentive and professional. Excellent dining, I highly recommend.

I am not giving 5 stars very often and in this case it is not because of the cook being a star. It is simply a perfect deal. Located right in THE main tourist/shopping street you would expect either bad or high price or both. This place offers quick, good service, has a stylish atmosphere (great movie photography at the...

An amazing restaurant. Excellent service. Food never let us down (and we sampled almost the whole menu over our stay). Lovely evening atmosphere at outdoor tables. Cost completely reasonable. A highlight of our trip.

Three of us ate dinner here one night after hiking all over Merano. One lamb, one beef and one veal entrée. All three were very good, nicely presented, and tasty. It was somewhat windy, which made sitting outside dicey, but on a calmer day, it would have been very pleasant. Not much of a view, but we were all happy... More

After driving all morning up from Milan and checking into our hotel in Lagundo we were certainly hungry for a good, if late, lunch! My partner knows Merano well and we headed straight for the pedestrian street Laubengasse where there were several good places to eat. He quickly chose Bistro 7, he'd been there often earlier and it turned out... More

We ate here after having it recommended from its partner and found the whole experience very relaxed and enjoyable. The food was very good and we all enjoyed it and the staff where very nice and helped whenever we needed it. This is a nice place to eat, however, you can only sit upstairs after 7.
