Myself and 3 friends spent 2 nights in Lucerne and ate at La Fenice on both evenings, returning on the 2nd night after having been so impressed on the first. The staff were very friendly and attentive, and with the restaurant so busy (The World cup was still on 1 night with a large TV screen inside) they still managed... More

We had two great meals at La Fenice. What a welcome find this restaurant was! Our service was wonderful, and the food was great! We were so pleased, we went back the second night we were in Lucerne. This one's a keeper! Prices are off the charts in Switzerland, but this restaurant kept prices manageable.

Great lasagna verde o forno. They also serve delicious looking pizzas, since they have a real wood burning stove. Service was good also.

Was greeted by friendly Staff, the restaraunt has a good atmosphere and quite cosy (was cold outside). The food was also quite good.. had the salmon canneloni and quattro formaggi pizza. In my opinion better than many other italian places around

Pizza was excellent- highly recommend the fiorentina. Friendly and attentive service. Wine list was all Italian but a broad offering and reasonably priced options. Handy old town location....an excellent choice for simple authentic and well priced family fare

Walked in for dinner Christmas night without a reservation, which wasn't a problem. The service was pleasant and attentive. We don't speak French or German, but the waitress spoke more than enough English to take our order and offer suggestions. We ordered the mozzarella, basil and tomato salad to start, as well as a margheritissimo (sp?) pizza and spaghetti bolognese... More

After finding most restaurants closed for XMAS in Luzern, we stumbled upon La Fenice and booked at table for XMAS dinner. Right from the booking they were friendly and accommodating and then the food started to arrive and it was as good at as anything I’ve had in Italy. The family all got different meals from pasta to calzone and... More
