If you feel like some great pizza this IS the Place to go to in Lausanne. First things first: from the moment you enter and a greeted with a hearty Ciao/Bonjour you feel right there and then at home. You are barely seated at your table by the energetic waiter and a refreshing apéritif is served - in our case... More

This is a hidden restaurant that locals showed us, serving typical Italian food with good standard. We tried pizza, salads and pasta, all very tasty. We will come back.

We ordered 2 pizzas and there were really tasty. The only think is that it's a bit expensive....I mean 20 Franks for me sounds a lot. But the quality is really good. The whole place also is wonderful by a special way :)

Very good traditional pizza, the oven is gas powered: not as tasty as the traditional wood one, but still good and way way better than the electric one that can be found in many other restaurants. Pizza's ingredients are genuine and of good provenance. Reservation is not possible but there's a good turnover so wait should be minimal most of... More

Called them to book a table. They did not take my booking confirming they would be no problem at all for 19h30. When arriving at 19h35 we were welcomed with a waiting time of one hour and a half ... no chance with kids. Will never try again also because of the tone on the phone. I had the impression... More

We were 7 people and from the beginning, waiter rushed us about our order. Also, they forced us to leave as soon as we finish our pizzas. Because there were people waiting for a table.
