Walking thru what seemed like a back ally and wandered into this place. Everyone in there had pizza so my husband got that and I got lasagna. Better than in Florence! Hands down-best lasagna I've ever had. It since we had a fridge, I took the leftovers for breakfast and it was still awesome. Wish we would have seen it... More

This is a little hidden gem with the best Italian food in Lucerne! Although the city is full of Italian restaurants, La Perla really hits the sweet spot - the interior is clean and chic while the food is authentic and ever so fresh! The wine selection is huge and offers an amazing selection of whites and reds. What I... More

On our first night in Lucerne, a little jet lagged but hungry none-the-less, we walked a block or so from our hotel and stumbled upon La Perla. It looked inviting so we gave it a try. We were not disappointed! Good food, attentive service, good wine selection; we were very happy with our find.

After reading and hearing the positive Feedback, we decided to make a reservation for 4. The table was right infront of the door and on the passage for all the waiters. OK, that's bad luck. The food itself was quite blend and the plates seemed to be made by a colorblind Chef, which is a pity as the eye also... More

Very friendly family-run restaurant with nice setup. We were there for biz lunch choosing the 3 course menu. Good, delicious classy food. Well prepared, risotto bit too al dente but tasty, portions exactly right. Prices were quite high ( 50 ) for a set lunch but still acceptable.

Best Italian restaurant near and far. Try the branzino, spaghetti Napoli, or any pizza! Lovely staff, very popular with locals.

The service is good and very kind however the quality of food is insufficient. I ate the most tender octopus salad of my life but unfortunately it was extremely salty and oily. As a main course I had beef fillet tagliata which I ordered saignant ( medium rare) however it ended up being more than medium ( almost well done)... More

We were a group of 12 for dinner with a reservation at 6:45pm on a Thursday. Everything went wrong that night. We arrived in 3 or 4 subgroups over 10 minutes. I was in the second subgroup and the owner did not even know where our table was when he "greeted" us. A bad sign, as we were the only... More

Spent a wonderful evening in this restaurant. We had the "Degustations Menu", a 4 course menu. Smoked swordfish (Hors d'œuvre froid), absolutely delicious, aubergine torteline with mint (Hors d'œuvre chaud)), great, polenta with chanterelle and filet of summer deer (pièce de résistance), fantastic, chocolate cappucino (dessert), great.
