The service staff are always warm and friendly and make every effort to make sure the guests are comfortable and satisfied with their meals and drinks alike. Their language skills are perfect and I like the fact that they always have an English menu for me. The atmosphere is relaxed and not 'stuffy'. The food is excellent every time I... More

Last week in Lucerne we asked our hotel concierge for a restaurant reccomendation. When he gave us Olivo in the nearby casino we were suspect. It is located in a grand ballroom setting above the casino. The staff was very attentive and friendly with excellent language skills to accomodate English, German, Italian, etc. But let me get right to the... More

the quiet athmosphere gives the possibility to have conversation with the people on the same table and not to be disturbed by loud music. If you like some nice entertainement with fine music you can change to the Piano Bar

On a nice weekend trip to Lucerne, we had one night left and went to Olivo for what we thought would be a nice meal and a nice evening. 1 hour to bring appetizers, 4 hours to complete a meal in a cold atmosphere, not one smile from the waitresses, and the feeling that we were annoying everyone when asking...

Located in the Luzern Casino, at the lake, it is a beautiful location. In February it is still to cold to sit outside, but in the summer it must be beautiful. The atmosphere is comparable with a 1 star restaurant; but then a bit more relaxed. The service is very nice and properly trained. The food was from great quality... More
