First of all we got a really warm welcome, then without asking anything they gave us warm focaccia. As starters we had carpaccios one beef and one fish delicious. The best of all was the pasta "Mare Nostro" a shellfish spaghetti dish cooked under a pizza crust. To finish don't forget to try a little espresso and grappa (Nardini). Enjoy!

Prices are quite high, service decent...but the food? Well.. When you order pasta ai funghi, you expect fresh, decent mushrooms. I'd be happy with a lot of different kinds. But I wouldn't have expected button mushrooms. Seriously? This is as cheap a spirit as it gets. I'm not even mentioned the political views of the owners... Something I learned after... More

One of Lausanne's oldest pizzerie ! A sinister entrance, a few stairs then a stunning view on the Cathedral ! Very nice and cool service. Not expensive at all, pasta and pizzas are simply delicious.

Their daily offer includes salad, pizza and coffee for 16 sfr. That is a very good deal. The service is very fast and extremely friendly.

The place is not on the street, the chance to see it is very small. Go thorugh a building entrance into an old italian style restaurant. The decor is quaint, they do use paper nepkins, but we don't care about it. The prices were average considering it is in the middle of "expensive fasion" street in Lausanne. Service was fast...

This restaurant is the place to go for great Italian food. It's owned and run but a southern Italian family who offer great hospitality and delicious food. Try the seafood pasta, it's amazing!

Good crispy pizzas. I have not tried much else, but friends of mine have and found it good. All in all a rather good Italian.
