Used to be better...

Since our last visit two years ago, the quality level of the Lorenzini unfortunately moved to average from very good. We went there for lunch today, and having been a regular when living near Bern, I fondly remembered the quality of the food in terms of aesthetics and taste. Sadly our salads were... read more

20chf (without drink) to entry into a very small club...in Italy it couldn't be considered a disco but a pub. Music 99% reggaeton...maybe top music for local people... Bartenders know few types of cocktails for 15-16chf, I asked vodka-lemon...I received vodka-redbull... If you want to pay with card...only over 30chf. Unlimited entrance, people piled like pigs to the slaughter. If... More

The Lorenzini fully lived up to my expectations, given the Bindella-brand and the price tag on the meals. The location is spacious, but super packed during lunch time - reservation mandatory. I had a saltimbocca with risotto. The meat was good, but the risotto was cooked to perfection.

The ambiance in this place is really nice and classy. I ordered one of the risottos with a glass of wine and sat in one of the various spacious rooms they've got upstairs. The light and the decoration were very fine and pleasant. I've got to say, great experience all in all. There's something legendary about this place, I felt...... More

There is no shortage of cheap, middle-of-the-road restaurants in Bern. Lorenzini is certainly not one of them. Despite of belonging to a chain of restaurants it retaines its character and constantly delivers good quality food and top-notch service. On my most recent visit, however, there was a slip, which should not happen in a restaurant of this calibre. My "Bistecca... More

I love this place because it never changes. And I always order red bean salad for starters and Capelletti with Burro/Salvia as main dish. Never change a winning dish. The head waiters have been the same for many years and the interior decoration is tastefully Italian. Exquisite wine list and atmospheric bar on ground floor, filled with beautiful people. Mind...
