This restaurant is a secret worth sharing. Delicious Sicilian dishes from starters to deserts. Fish is the speciality but pasta is excellent too. Very careful, dedicated and caring service from the owner. The homemade Limoncello was offered. What a great surprise. The wine list could be improved. Will go back again soon!

We decided to eat at the Tandem following the excellent reviews and the top spot among Lausanne's restaurant. The owner was very kind and welcomed us very warmly (maybe to compensate for something else?). He explained us the menù and especially the fresh-fish dishes, but we opted for the meat. We ordered a steak medium temp, surprisingly we received a... More

Loved the food here, had a Medium Rare Tuna Steak with their homemade grandma's sauce - consisting of olive oil, lemon, oregano and garlic, with a side of saffron and vegetables - loved it. Service was especially superb!

The restaurant has a nice position in Trip Advisor's list for Lausanne. It was however disappointing for my lunch meal. Very average food. Pasta was ok, but nothing like Italy. The salad was ok but not better than the one you can get from supermarkets.

Eating here feels like eating at home. The owner Agnosto greeted us with a handshake and immediately brought us cocktails and an appetizer on the house! The food was cooked fresh and the portions are huge. And there was complimentary dessert!

Came here based on reviews as the highest-rated restaurant in the neighborhood. Owner (?) was welcoming, warm and consistent. The place is really much more spacious and comfortable than we had thought from the look of the exterior. It's simple and pleasing. The menu is sizable for a neighborhood establishment and t's more about comfort food than creative or modern-take... More

This is a small restaurant with great italian food and very welcoming staff. We were there for a birthday celebration and not dissapointed at all. Our waiter was especially nice to us and made us feel like we were in Italy.

The owner greeted each of our party of 4 with a handshake as new friends. He didn't speak much English but between French, Italian and Google translate we all had excellent dishes and in large portions. We finished off the meal with very good limoncello. It was the most expensive meal we've had in Europe (Paris, Switzerland, and Germany) but... More

We had a wonderful dinner (3 good friends) where everything was divine. From the first moment I arrived at the door I felt immediately welcomed by the owner with his charming Italian hospitality. The food was delicious and so was the wine. Look forward to come back soon!,,
