This Italian restaurant was full and busy. The food was excellent. I had the seafood salad appetizer which was fresh, delicious and loaded with seafood. The spaghetti carbonara was rich and yummy. It was full of bacon and cream. I suggest you share it. The staff was very attentive and welcoming. Highly recommended.

We have had pizza all over Switzerland and Italy and this is one of the best thin crust pizzas out there. Friendly staff ,but beware this place can fill up quickly and you might want to make reservations.

We walked around Old Town Lucerne hunting for a place to eat dinner. Many places along the lake were very very expensive. By accident we walked up to this place (after seeing another place, but it had no patrons and Trip Advisor reviews were all over the map). This restaurant was full of people, so we thought they can't all... More

Fun spot in which to dine, while in Lucerne! The Weissen Kreuz ("white cross") has a very long history, which is outlined in the menu. I ordered a seafood salad, which actually had very little seafood & LOT's of seafood (octopus,squid, etc.) & was delicious! The service was friendly & efficient, which isn't always the case in a busy touristy... More

I love to go here with my girlfriends, the food is really good quality and the service are always friendly. I do recommend to make reservations because it's a local gem and is full every night of the week. The only bad thing is that it's on a back street so there is no view and their outdoor seating is...

the food options are varied and the quality excellent. This is a very good option for all visitors going to Luzern, and especially for those who are guests in the hotel with the same name.
