Horrendous service! I was told there was no availability for the entire night EVEN though there were 4 tables free at that time! I asked why I couldn't be seated but the waitress just shrugged and smiled...absolutely ridiculous.

This is the restaurant that is a part of the Casino Luzern ... the casion isn't much but this restaurant is wonderful! Beautiful presentation and gourmet.

Olivo is a quality restaurant and when combined with a Casino/dining combination is great entertainment. The menus is varied and the dishes excellently presented, with a wide and comprehensive wine selection. Menu combinations (3-4 courses) make selecting dishes easier, while the a la carte choice is exciting too. As a birthday gift to my wife we enjoyed a wonderful meal,... More

We arrived late to Grand Hotel National which is next door, so we decided to try Restaurant Olivo after reading all the positive reviews. At 9:30pm, there were a few couples eating on their gorgeous balcony seating, but the beautiful main dining room was empty.
