Great place to stop for a drink or a meal. The tables overlook the lake and are on the main promenade of Ascona. Staff were friendly and service was quick.

We visited Ascona on the boat from Locarno and wanted a light lunch. There are a lot of pavement cafes and restaurants along the lakefront, but hardly any of them had menus on display which showed what they were offering.

I tried this restaurant and I was very disappointed. We were only 5 to 6 customers but it took about 40 minutes to receive the Pizza (it takes only 5 Minutes to bake one).
