Surprise with our finding

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

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

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

We had a dinner at this restaurant without any reservation. We had tried Pizzas, Pastas and soup and all were very tasty to enjoy. After a long day around Luzern it was a great atmosphere to rest but I should also mention that it was over crowded and very loudly.

We were wondering in the old town when we stumbled across this restaurant for dinner. The service was ok but food was served very quickly (maybe we were their 1st customer for that evening). We had a pizza & pasta and all were delicious.

We stumbled in for lunch but they were closing lunch service so we decided to come back for dinner and that was no mistake. The food was outstanding. Very likely the best spagetti carbonara I have ever been served. Our server was very helpful even though we had made no reservation. If you are in Luzern you must eat there... More

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

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.
