Not like this should be surprising -- everything in the whole country of Switzerland is super expensive, but this meal was the most expensive out of all the restaurants we went to. Know that there is no menu here. You eat whatever they give you. Luckily, we liked everything they served us. Our waitress was nice too. In the end... More

Visiting our son in Lucerne and he booked us into this restaurant. Fixed menus with no choices are a gamble but it was excellent. The restaurant was choc a bloc and cosy.Great food and plenty of it. We enjoyed the venison especially. If there was a downside,it was the time taken to have each course served (there were four /five.)... More

My wife and I (and 2 others) had an amazing dinner here. The staff was very hospitable and the atmosphere was amazing. A very local feel, and a quaint intimate atmosphere. The food was also spectacular. We would go out of our way to dine here again.

We chose this place because we were in the mood for some good Italian food and also because of the generally positive ratings here. This proved to be a mistake. The 1st impression already set the tone, the restaurant being located in a run-down looking part of town in an industrial area with big dumpster right next to it. The... More

Firstly Lucerne has a beautiful lakefront promenade filled with restaurants you can sit outside. This restaurant is in the warehouse District and too out of the way for me. The hotel I stayed at had never heard of the restaurant. It seemed like mainly locals. We had a table outside. The restaurant only has one fixed menu and does not... More

From the moment you walk in the casual rustic decor puts you at ease. The waitstaff were very friendly and the food was freshly prepared, portions were generous and it tasted fantastic.

Perfect setting and atmosphere, great Italian food from set menu, friendly and curteous staff. Will be many repeat visits from me in future! Location is a little of the beaten track in Lucerne industrial area. But it is a highly recommended diversion from the city.

Always a delight to come here and spend an evening. It is a restaurant set in an old auto repair shop well off the beaten tourist areas. ( Take a taxi it's a 10 min drive). The set menu changes daily we were told, a wonderful 4 course menu it was. Each dish is served in a big bowl-platter for... More

Entertained friends from Ohio while we were all attending a meeting in Lucerne. The set menu offered selections for all and delivered with great service. When we wished to return a cocktail as it was not what was expected, as well as did not like the wine selection, both were returned and replaced without an issue.
