WELCOME TO THE BLU
Enter a unique dimension where style becomes taste: the BLU Restaurant & Lounge awaits you on Locarno's lakefront, in perfect harmony between water and sky, to offer you an emotion full of flavour and relaxation, with attention paid to the smallest detail and ready to exceed your personal expectations.
Choose the difference that derives from the cordiality of our attentive and efficient staff who, in this elegant and friendly ambience, always offer that added touch which renders each dish and every drink something special.
Enjoy an experience that is never the same, thanks to the refined cuisine and a kitchen open Monday - Thursday and Sunday until 10 p.m. and Friday - Saturday until midnight, to an amazing and original cocktail and to a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere suited to every moment of the day, from breakfast to lunch, from an aperitif to late evening.
ALL THE FLAVOURS OF BLU
Take advantage of the kitchen being open Monday - Thursday and Sunday until 10 p.m. and Friday - Saturday until midnight: BLU's restaurant, also equipped as a pizzeria, offers dozens of dishes deriving from the ability and creativity of chef Davide Asietti. Fresh and genuine ingredients, often produced locally, are carefully balanced to recreate traditional recipes as well as to provide original and innovative dishes, all able to satisfy the most discerning palates, even vegetarian and vegan.
To accompany the meals, choose from BLU's extensive wine list or be advised on the most appropriate wine. A wide range of quality wines selected from among the best Ticino and international vineyards is available to complete the flavour of each dish with the right touch of delight.
WHEN IT'S TIME FOR BLU
Relax in style, in the right ambience for your evenings out: BLU's lounge bar is a modern, welcoming open space, separated into different areas in order to give you the atmosphere you are seeking, whether intimate or convivial. The bar is on the upper floor, overlooking the restaurant and with a view of the lake.
Why not try the trendiest drinks or relive the golden age of cocktails? Let barman Fausto guide you in tasting drinks or spirits typical of the eighties. Cocktails are mixed or shaken using local products and innovative ingredients such as liquorice, ginger or preserves. Some drinks are already a success, like “BLU Edition", made with fresh fruit, and “Tintoretto, a real anti-aging knockout, much appreciated by our female clientele.
To go with your drinks there are mouth-watering snacks prepared in the BLU kitchen. The focacce cooked in our wood-fired oven can be garnished with sauces, spices and a variety of other ingredients such as vegetables, miniature mousses or truffled salami. But if you are looking for still more unusual and amazing flavours, the exotic bar offers irresistible sushi-based recipes, prepared by an expert oriental chef.
