The food and the service was great. They were very accommodating to my gluten-free diet. I look forward to going back in the near future!

Located in a 17th century town house on a small picturesque square in the old town of Neuchâtel beside La Fontaine du Banneret. Nice outdoor terrace to enjoy a drink or a meal. Italian and Mediterranean cuisine with an emphasis on fresh seasonal produce. Pasta and fish are absolute delights, and delicious sorbets are not to be missed.

My husband found this restaurant and decided to try it because the location was walking distance from our hotel. The food was well prepared and presented beautifully. We ordered a beef filet that you could cut with a butter knife. The service was above and beyond the norm. Although pricey, I felt like it was money well spent.

Visiting friends for coffee on a Saturday morning, they (being locals) suggested we have lunch at Le Banneret- stating that this is the best Italian restaurant in Neuch. Well, they were right. The owner/matron suggested sauted Chanterelles mushroom ('arrived this morning') and I followed with a veal piccata. Simple yet fresh and flavorful dishes washed down with a house wine... More

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful meal at Le Banneret - we sat outside in the cobbled courtyard and found it really charming. Our waitress was lovely, very friendly and the food was excellent! You definitely need to reserve - they were having to turn away people who hadnt - especially if you would like to sit outside.

Set in a beautiful building in the historical centre of Neuchatel. On the expensive side and the service is attentive but quite formal. The atmosphere was a little crowded as the restaurant is very small, but the food was very good and presented well. I wouldn't go there with children. Staff should learn to smile a little too...

The best table bar none regarding location, decor, service and consistency of great tasting Italian food. Angelo and his team make the best pasta (try the degustation de pates and especially the taglierini au citron and the caramelle) and provide a wonderful culinary experience. In the summer, opt for the outdoor seating on the cobblestones rather than the main dining... More

The food here is top notch, one of my favorite restaurants in Neuchatel. I love the carpaccio, risotto and veal. The spicy pasta is great too and don't forget the Tirmasu!
