Visited this restaurant by chance as I couldn't get a wifi connection in the hotel, so it was a case of the old fashioned way walking around, looking at menus, and how busy each establishment was. This one won as it was moderately busy and beat others slightly with the most expensive steak around. The starter was the basic Tomato/Mozzarella... More

My wife and I wanted a good pizza, so we went here and were NOT disappointed. They had some of the best pizza we've ever had! I had the minestrone soup, and my wife had a salad before the main course, and both were great! My minestrone was so big and full of fresh veggies (topped with basil pesto!) that... More

I visited this restaurant twice during a short stay in Montreux last week. On both occasions I had a superb meal and Service was excellent. I would recommend their soups and any pizza which the chef will only release from the oven when they are IMVHO absolutely perfect.

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.
