Welcome to Ristorante L’Approdo
The Ristorante L’Approdo in Minusio is a public exercise wanted by the local town hall to complete the beautiful area of the Municipal port at the end of the wonderful Rivapiana promenade.
Since 2012, Monica Poroli & Luciano Badini have take this new professional challenge with great enthusiasm.
Co-managers since 1984 – with the guidance of the Locarno Campeggio Delta – they continue to work as hosts with great passion. The same passion that was handed down to Monica from her father Carlo Poroli, and that now she herself is sharing with her daughter Giovanna.
Luciano comes instead from the Hotel School of Stresa, and after years of experience in the world, he has chosen Ticino to made his dreams come true.

Years of Experience
We found the staff welcoming, the service and food good and the location is perfect for relaxing alongside the lake.
Excellent food and greate Lakeview
I went to L’approdo many times with my clients and I always had a good business lunch in a friendly atmosphere. Monica and all her staff are very nice and the food is simply excellent.
It’s unusual to have good Service and good Food combined. Well this restaurant has it all. Not to speak about the location itself overlooking the beautiful lake and monitor the floating boats right next. …
Since 2012 we have been visiting the restaurant many times ourselves and also with guests. We enjoyed it each time: the food is always fresh and tasty (excellent fresh fish and meat), the service-team and the manager Monica Poroli are very friendly and welcoming even when the restaurant is fully booked and the staff busy serving guests. The nice environment directly at the see is enjoyable: summarised the overall price-quality is great and we recommend all to visit the restaurant, you will not regret.
