Wouldn't go back

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

We eat here on our only evening in Luzern. We walked around the old town and other restaurant areas comparing prices and menus. Luzern appeared expensive so we ended up at la Fenice at it appeared to offer better value than most in the city. Indeed there was only one other restaurant in our final selection! La Fenice has two... More

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.

Our group of 8 stopped here since it had other good reviews. We ordered pizza, salads and desserts. The Caprese salad was so fresh and delicious! We had a variety of pizza's at our table and everyone enjoyed the thin crisp crusts and flavorful and fresh toppings. For desserts, we also ordered a few different items and among them was... More
