Visited this restaurant last week with some friends and ordered the pasta with sun dried tomatoes and artichockes as primo piatto: pasta was not yet al dente and the tomatoes and artichockes of few flavour. As a main i took white fish with olive tapenade on top, spinach and black rice on the side. Spinach was way too salty, black... More

This is by far the worst dining experience that I have ever had! We were treated terribly, charged a completely incorrect amount and the food was deplorable. I am shocked and upset by how awful it was. They didn't even serve cappucinos and they claim to be an Italian restaurant? Ridiculous. Just horrific.

The menu offers very good meals that requires you time in order to choose, very good aspect. Environment quiet and nice, service very attentive making recommendations. We ordered gnochi with pistaccio sauce and prawns and it was delicious. In general, highly recommendable.

We have been here twice. On both occasions really good, authentic italian food was served. The staff is friendly, but only speaks a little English. The athmosphere is relaxed and cosy.This is without doubt our favorite restaurant in Lausanne, and we will for sure go here again ..... you should try it too.

They serve really tasty italian food, but there are too few things to choose from the menu, and very few vegetarian dishes. The starters are way to expensive for what they really are, even though the ones I've tried were good. And the service is slow and unattentive, it's always a bit disappointing.

I had some doubts when I entered the restaurant as at 19:00 there where no visitors, other restaurants in the neighbourhood where more busy. Still went in and asked for a table on the terace. No regret about the food, really good food, but a bit pricey. The waiter was friendly but did not speak English. Later in the evening... More

Italian restaurant offering a menu of regional Italian specialties. Do not find pizzas à la carte, but authentic dishes. The menu offers various antipasti, a selection of "homemade" pasta with accompanying sauces changing from the Bolognese, carbonara or pesto. Meat and fish are also on the menu. The setting is authentic and wooded with an open kitchen that allows you... More

I went to this restaurant with my wife and kids. We love italian food and were quite excited to eat there after reading all the positive comments. We were disappointed in the food and the service. It feels like there is no boss and that the staff where lacking motivation. My linguini and clams were full of sand. My wife's... More

Food was really good and served on nice plates. The beef meat was really really tender and its sauce amazingly good! Staff was smiling and very polite, a very good service. I recommend pasta with black truffles, the beef fillet and the meat balls, all very yummy! For digestive lovers, they have very good grappa :) The restaurant has also... More
