Tasty pizza in a lovely outdoor setting

La Fenice has a great outdoor seating area and offers tasty pizza. It is a bit pricey but, to enjoy such lovely views along the lake side, it's worth the cost. Pizzas were around 20.00 - 23.00 SFR and beers 8.00 SFR.

We tried to eat here in the mid-afternoon & pizza was the only food available so we returned in the evening. This was an excellent choice. Our server was excellent. The restaurant is nicely appointed. The food was excellent. We shared the bruschetta appetizer and each ordered wine & pasta. I had the linguine with mushroom & shrimp in a... More

We walked in here with a large group at a lunchtime and the place was all empty. We at down, looked at the menu, went for the lunch offer and the next thing we knew - the place had already filled up with people. Seems to be a popular spot for set lunches. Switzerland is expensive. There is no such... More

During a short stay in Lucerne prior to a river cruise with our friends we decided that we really wanted an Italian meal since we would be eating German food for the next 7 days. After some research and speaking with the hotel staff we went in search of the restaurants that were recommended. After finding the first one that... More

Strolling through Lucerne spotted this place. Confirmed with sales lady at nearby chocolate shop that this was of above average quality. It was. Varied menu, nice wine list and good quality food. Three of us chose the daily menu option consisting of a soup, salad and any pizza / pasta off the menu. One of us opted for the bruschetta... More

This is one of many Italian restaurants in the area. We picked it based on the menu alone. The menu is extensive, they have many options for both pizza and pasta. The food was very good and we found the service to be very good as well.

Awful service. They don't like solo diners and made very obvious. Didn't understand garlic bread when I asked for it even though table next to me had it. Very slow service with no communication. Charged wrong amount to card (only 0.30 more but not the point)

We enjoyed nice pizzas here, quite authentic but the service wasn't great. It seemed as if the waitress had never worked in a restaurant before, perhaps she hadn't?!

We were looking for a restaurant away from the river to see if we had a better experience than the previous night. This one looked good, and so we sat down outside. The food was very good; adults both had risottos, the children had a pizza to share. We found the service a bit poor. We asked for two plates... More
