If you are a fan of the Italian trattoria, then this is the place to eat. The food was freshly prepared, there was lots of it and for Switzerland I thought it was actually quite cheap! It is up a side street towards the old part of Montreux so you don't pay lakeside prices. Well worth searching out!

Small, cosy, family owned restaurant. Great italian food but not cheap (it's Switzerland though). Salads are great, especially the one with grilled goat cheese! One of my favourite finds in Montreux!

First night in Montreux and couldn't be bothered to seek out anything other than pizza/pasta restaurant. It's not an easy task! So tried La Locanda. We have noticed it on previous Montreux visits and it's always pretty empty. Now we know why. My pizza vegetarienne was fine but, at the end of the meal, my wife admitted that her pasta... More

I had a late dinner there last weekend, and though I stumbled across it by accident, I'm glad I went! The service was very polite and accommodating, and the pizza I had was very tasty. If back in Montreux, I would definitely visit again.

Starting with the good, the restaurant is cosy and the server was friendly enough. The food however was very dissapointing. The entrecote was very tough and the pastas mediocre at best. It is also a pizza delivery service. Maybe the pizza's are Ok, but i won't take the risk.

I totally forgot to write a review of this place which we visited on April 9, 2013 and again a few days later. The service was nice. I believe it was the season for asparagus and the soup they served us was thick and absolutely delicious. One of the best I've ever had. The pizza too was ridiculously good. Highly... More

Pizza was decent but expensive. Sat inside by bar area and it was extremely loud and dishes clattering . Kept hearing intercom from dumb waiter area. Waiter never checked on us, too busy on intercom. Might have had another beer, but too late.

The location is a little hidden.. there are no neon signs or blackboards guiding you up the narrow Ruelle du trait, which is nice. The food is very fresh and delicious. The gambas soup, very very tasty!..watercress soup also very good.. My main dish was a big fresh salad with gambas in a curry sauce.. Spot on! My husband had... More
