“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Visiting family in the neighborhood, we stopped to eat at this restaurant on a whim. The decor left a lot to be desired but the food was excellent. The restaurant seemed to be filled with locals and we were happy to have a local with us because we didn't speak French and the staff didn't speak much English.

“very good place - belmont sur lausanne”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

the restaurant is in "Belmont sur Lausanne" a small village 10km from Lausanne.
the pizzas are very good (from 20 to 30 CHF) with a wooden oven running all the time. i would recommend the sea bass (42 CHF) that is always fresh and taste delicious. fresh pasta is also a good option.
service is one of the best i found in Switzerland.
for the kids, there is a playground beside the front door.

“Best pizza in Lausanne”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

Great place to enjoy a delicious traditional pizza at lunch with colleagues or friends. But if you are looking for a more fancy or cosy atmosphere you may be somewhat disappointed. Waiters are Portuguese and very kind. An Italian friend of mine was surprised to discover this place and he was the one to say "best pizza in Lausanne".

“Pizza is yum, but don't make it too late a night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

The restaurant has good food (the usual stuff you get in Switzerland - pizzas, pastas, etc.), but don't stay out too late because you may disturb the neighbours who live on top of the restaurant. This is typical Switzerland though, so it's still worth going. I liked the food. The server seemed a bit overwhelmed but we were a huge group, and he was still efficient. It's in a nice location.
