Went here on the 2nd Jan Meal for two with starter main and wine was about £88. Starters were typical Italian fare and tasty. Mains. Pasta with prawns for me. Cannelloni (spinach and riccotta) for the other half. Again, both served their purpose. Previous reviews say 'wish I'd had the pizza'. I'd had pizza the day before in another restaurant... More

I wouldn't say the food was bad but my daughter and I both had prawn dishes, if we had closed our eyes and put a prawn in our mouth we never would have known it was a prawn. Once frozen I think... the pizza looks superb, wish we'd had that...

I took a couple of colleagues from out of town to La Fenice yesterday. The restaurant itself is very central in the main shopping street in Luzern's old town. Inside it's cosy and elegant, but not overstated; the lighting is not too harsh and the decor is wooden and slightly rustic.The pizza kitchen is open to the restaurant seating area,... More

Found this restaurant on Yelp and checked it out as an alternative to a train-wreck Italian place near our hotel. So glad we went. The service and atmosphere here was fantastic. Upon hearing my husband has a dairy allergy, the staff went out of their way - unasked - to dig for any and all dairy free options, making sure... More

The food and service is very good and the price is medium for this city.It is an Italian trattoria and you have the choice of the inside restaurant area or a beautiful shaded courtyard area. The ambience is great and so easy to just let time go by. Highle recommended

We ate here on a very warm evening in July. We were looking for reasonable prices (for Luzern!) and outdoor seating. I think we got both. The food was fine. I was disappointed that the dessert options were just various ice creams. Service was very slow - if you wanted something more you had to actively search out the wait... More

Wondering in the old town and spotted this restaurant. We are happy with their pizza and pasta. Not forgetting, they serve good Moscato.

After having read the other reviews, we decided to eat a late lunch there. We ordered penne allarabiatta e insalata caprese. The pasta was overcooked and fatty and the insalata was ok. A bottle of water cost 6.50. Everything was overpriced. Service was ok
