I tried the most famous pizza places of Lausanne and this is the best! I'm Italian and you recognize good pizzas by: -the dough -quality of ingredients -baking method you recognize good and original pizzerias by: -menu compositions (crazy matches are unoriginal) -elegance of the place (too elegant places are fake, they just want to charge you more) -the time...

Poor pizza dough, not even thin, and tasteless; the tomato base was obviously from a tin of tomato concentrate, the ham was gross and not of a refined Italian quality. Only the parmesan cheese was acceptable! And the price for that is 26.5 CHF ! And also the prosecco wine they served was almost hot!

Amazing truffle meals that you do not find easily. Burrata con tartufo, beef con tartufo etc. Great wines and wonderful service.

Un exception in Switzerland, where service is not really a strength, this restaurant has really exceptional service. Personnel very kind, attentive to provide you the best service. Food is also outstanding. Price is higher then average in Switzerland.

We just had a very fancy italian dinner there and, although it was pricey, the food was great. Seafood Risotto was a highlight! Rice vooked to perfection, creamy but firm! Now, if you want to strike a good deal, get pizzas to go, thats a good deal!!!

we looked up for a place to eat pizza on Tripadvisor but it took a while to find the place. the ambience is nice, the service is fast and very kind. They spoke italian to us even if we spoke french at first. the pizza wasn't that big, but still very good and we also saw many enormous pasta dishes... More

I forgot how nice the staff is here at Molisana, and the food is absolutely made like your mamma does it. Enjoy the Pasta Fantasia, a tastig session of fresh home made pasta. Do not forget the Tiramisu: sublime is only the first name. Buon appetito.

If you want a typical Italian restaurant this is the place to go. Very good food, excellent service, and I love hearing the Italian accent when the servers are taking our orders. Best to make reservations even for a dinner on a week night. Only downside is trying to find parking near the restaurant - almost impossible if you don't... More

Just had lunch today after searching on Tripadvisor APPs, I was satisfied over all and what made me confident to enter the restaurant after walking a good 10 minutes from centre was that the place was packed with locals. Nicely welcomed by the owner at the entrance and promptly seated. The waitress within a minute took drink order,really quick! She... More
