Italian restaurant in the hotel

There are many restaurants nearby however, all that are very expensive. We finally back to hotel and had a dinner in hotel Italian restaurant. We order pizza and soup and pasta and the taste were very good and the price is not that expensive.

It was difficult to find a table for us (four adults), because the restaurant, which is quite large, was really full. Until the staff found an appropriate table for us, I was observing the pizzaiolo preparing all pizzas alone (and how efficient he works!!). We thought it should take long till we get ours due to the situation. But, wow,... More

Been here twice and both times good food, large portions, decent prices. About 25CHF for pizza or pasta. Only bad thing to say is that service is pretty bad. Only like 3 guys serving the whole restaurant. Took us almost 1 hour from sitting down to ordering. We ordered a bottle of wine as well and the guy brought us... More

Had dinner here. Starter was an Italian antipasto, very good but huge. For the main I had a chef special, pasta with veal in a spicy tomato sauce. This was truly excellent. Would love it again. I had red wine by the glass. The restaurant was nicely busy, the waiter was friendly. They had English menus. Really enjoyed the experience.

Indeed best Pizza in Town as well as professional and fast Service. Fresh incredients for the Pizza, after baking they add fresh tomatos, "Rucola" salad or smoked ham on top. Staff is friendly and efficent. Admirable, when I think how many people they serve at the same time. Make yourself a good evening at Weisses Kreuz Luzern.

The pizza was ok, the staff was not really polite, and it israther pricy for that sort of food and service.

We just stopped in Lucerne on our way through Switzerland. We stopped here because pizza is an easy meal and we read theirs is good. It was not, if this is the best pizza in Lucerne, I feel badly for its residents. What really bothered me was the 8 franc green salad I ordered that ended up being a bowl... More

We had a Pizza after a stressful meeting in Luzern The Restaurant had a great atmosphere and the service was spot on. The Pizza was great. Typical Italian thin crust with great flavour. I had the Fiorentina (spinach, onion and garlic) it was fantastic. Great place to visit whether in a group as a couple or with family.

My favorite Italian restaurant in Luzern, with no disrespect to Mama Leones or Rossinis. I just have gotten to know the long time staff and they welcome me back every year. Terrific selection of pastas and sauces and they don't mind when I mix and match, for example the tortellini with pesto rather than butter and salt. Great portion sizes.... More
