I found this place while wandering near the cathedral and am so happy I did. My boyfriend and I went back for dinner and enjoyed the best plates of pasta both of us have ever eaten. Everything is homemade, and the flavors are unbelievable. They have daily "prix fixe" specials that come with salad, a main dish, and a dessert... More

We really enjoyed our trip to il Ghiotto and the amazing fagottini pasta with truffle sauce! It is a little difficult to find but ended up being well worth the trip (it's on a side road next to the cathedral). I would definitely recommend if you are looking for Italian food.

I liked the food and the friendly service. Prices are ok for Lausanne. Good wines. Service can be slow but it is not a problem when you enjoy the place.

Booked on line after reading reviews an hour before and made way up to restaurant which is by the Cathedral.

Owner explained all the different options and opted for a special with... More

If you like good food with friendly and sunny personnel, visit the place. The food is really good and the prices are lower. Place is visited by locals usually, which might be a good sign of quality. "When travelling do as locals do". :)
