We stopped for dinner with a party of 6 while on a river cruise extension. We were greeted by a rude and unpleasant waitress who gave us very poor service. After a very long wait, we were asked to order but never offered wine or water. Bread was served with no butter, oil or accompaniments, though it was offered to... More

Saturday/lunchtime We had no reservation and managed to secure the last free table in a full restaurant - the ultimate service test Great service, child friendly, set menus even at the weekend (lunchtimes), superb food to boot. Topped off with an excellent coffee. Would definitely return

We were unsure of this restaurant because of it's name but we had delicious pasta here. The Spaghetti alla Vongole was phenomenal. The prices were the same as other restaurants in Lucerne, which meant protein was just too expensive to eat. This is a great place though and we highly recommend it.

I have been to Mamma Leone a couple of times in the past, and was never impressed by it. I went again last week because I had been told that the owner/chef changed, and that it got better. I agree, it is much better than it used to be, with still room for improvement: Food: My friend said the bruschetta... More

Such an odd experience, after 4 weeks of amazing ones throughout Switzerland & Austria. As early diners, we were able to be seated immediately, which was nice! That's about where the niceness ceased. Our waiter barely looked at us, as he painstakingly entered our orders onto his mini-Ipad. He left without even taking the order for one member in our... More

After travelling for 2 weeks in Italy, we began our last week of vacation in Switzerland. After a wonderful Lucerne visit, we stopped at Mamma Leone for dinner. So disappointed that we were overcharged for wine!! We ordered pizza for dinner (very good) and without a wine list unfortunately we ordered a litre of house wine. Of course we had... More

My husband and I just happened to wander upon this restaurant while walking through Lucerne. What an amazing surprise! Lucerne can be a little difficult to navigate and this restaurant was a breath of fresh air. Outside seating with a view of the river full of water from melted snowtops. The wait staff was very friendly and spoke English well.... More

Very good pasta dishes and the daily specials are all freshly made by the chef/owner from Napoli. Good helpful service with the daily specials described in detail by friendly waiters. Chef/owner also introduced himself to all tables later in the evening. Only problem we had, was the restaurant was far too hot, and we couldnt sit and relax. Fine when... More

This turned out to be one of our best meals in Lucerne. I had the spaghetti with prawns and it was really delicious. My husband had a pizza, you can find them everywhere in Lucerne, and it was very good as well. Was expecting more of a chain style restaurant meal and was pleasantly surprised. One thing to note, the... More
