When planning our trip to Switzerland, we chose this restaurant in Luzern based on the enthusiastic reviews--one of them had said it was their best meal during a trip to Switzerland. Well, our family of five concurs, and we were in Switzerland for 11 days--this was our favorite meal. The restaurant is located in an out-of-the-way area of Luzern, but... More

This is a wonderful restaurant located on a quiet street away from the main part of town (just a short 5 minute taxi ride or 20 minute walk.). The decor is superb, very rustic with personalized chandeliers (all hanging with kitchen tools or utensils) and great furniture. Everything seems personalized, down to the unique four course menu served each night.... More

Nice atmosphere and friendly people here. The 5-course menu costs CHF64 and we have ordered main and dessert only. The beef and pasta are fantastic and perfectly cooked. The desserts are winners!

Just drop in on our way back to Lucern from Engleberg after a long day trip, and was lucky to get the last available table, the food and the service are all very good with a surprise menu, but the price is dear as well, a good place for a surprise event.

I wanted to go there so long and it finally worked. The ambience was lovely and the staff was so very friendly. The food was very good and it was definitely enough.

As the other reviews sum up, this is a one menu cozy Italian restaurant. The food sells this establishment. It is extremely good. The decor is rustic and reminds customers of cobbled stone Italian buildings. It is truly unique and in a very positive way. The waiting staff were very friendly but also very informative.

The restaurant is small & cozy with a perfect service and perfect food. Mostly they only got 2 dishes per day which varies every day. You can taste the freshness of the products and everything is cooked with passion and love for food.
