This is a very busy restaurant so it is a good idea to reserve a table. However,on a recent spontaneous visit we were not turned away. I had a lovely glass of wine at the bar and a table was ready within 10 minutes. There is a great choice for all tastes, good sized portions, excellent and friendly service. Good... More

Food is pretty good, however always a bit too salty for my taste. Service is decent and fast. I like that they are open late and on Sunday evenings, it's hard to find such places in Switzerland..

This place gets pretty busy so it's a good idea to book ahead. I didn't and had to sit at the bar, which was worth it because the handmade pasta was DELICIOUS. The texture and the flavour was to die for. Unfortunately they don't have a wide selection of beers, they only have Carlsberg on tap (I guess people who... More

We shared the large seafood antipasto plate and it was amazing and more than enough for a meal! Lots of good wine choices. We went about 5:30 to beat the rush at 7:30 and were able to enjoy dinner before the tables were all filled. Wonderful Italian choice in Bern.

The restaurant is very delightful, the food was very good (pene with salmon, and pasta with vongoli). The waiter (a portuguese man), was very attentive. We like very much. I recomend!

Live is located in the heart of Bern and popular among tourists, especially that it's one of the best Italian restaurants there. And it truly is. I loved my gnocchi with tomato sauce, but I will never forget their sumptuous Tiramisu! One of the best I've had if not the best. Their ice cream though was a bit of a... More

The food was really delicious, and there are many dishes you can choose from. However, the staff was not very friendly and a mid-aged lady, maybe the owner or a kind of manager, was very crude and arrogant. Conclusion: do expect nice food but don't expect good service!

Been searching around for a restaurant to eat, and saw this restaurant rated as 6th so decided to give it a try. Greeted by one of the worst servers I have met in my life, telling us most of the menu is unavailable. After we sat down we asked her many times to help us take our order, but she... More

Having walked my feet off round Old Bern, I decided I didn't want to walk far to eat, and this italian resto next door to the hotel seemed ideal, so I popped in at 6pm on the way back to the hotel to reserve - said he was too full at the time I requested, but if I came now,... More
