We always look forward to having a meal here when in Engelberg. Great starters and the Minestrone soup is delicious. Go early for lunch as after 2pm you can only order pizza and salad until 6.30pm. Very friendly, mostly Italian, staff. Small dogs welcomed with a bowl of water. Weather permitting sit outside on the terrace and enjoy the sun.

Went there twice. Once for lunch on the terrace where you get the sun in the afternoon (good spot and a view of the old monastery). Had pizza and was decent and reasonably priced. Then again last night for dinner. Seafood salad starter which was well presented and very tasty followed by the pasta with fennel sausage. Pasta was cooked well (al Dente) and portions a good size. Good wine list and all in all the bill was pretty reasonable.

We went there for a family lunch and we all asked for pizzas. The food was ok but the service was awful. First lady that we've talked with just turned us her back and went inside to call somebody else to attend us. We were 5 and restaurant was empty inside and he gave us a table for 4 and added a chair on the top for one of our children, instead of given us a table for 6 and remove one chair. At the end we needed to go inside to ask somebody to bring us the bill because suddenly all the employees just disappeared and we waited for long minutes to see if anybody would check on us but that never happened.

We arrived at 1330 hoping to get a quick pizza lunch in the sun. There was a table of 2 people just leaving so we asked the waiter if we could sit, he turned his back and walked inside. After 20 minutes, every other table was also looking for the waiter, he finally arrived to clear the table, we told him we wanted a menu and we wanted to order drinks and pizza, again he grunted and disappeared. Our table was still dirty and we still didnt have a menu. Finally at 1410 he appeared and spoke in broken English to tell us that there was no pizza. He pointed to his watch, shrugged his shoulders and walked off. He didnt speak German or English, and other staff could be seen inside the restaurant, setting empty tables, and stacking glasses. We left after wasting 45 minutes waiting for service. As locals we eat out a lot in Engelberg, but we will never spend money here again.

We arrived at 1405, hungry from skiing with 2 children. Barely any of the staff spoke English and they basically turned us away. After repeatedly asking them we would wait for kitchen to reopen they said 1430 the pizza would be possible to order. It took 30 minutes in that time to just order drinks and staff was extremely rude. Restaurant was not even 25% full and staff could barely manage taking orders and serving us. In the end we must admit Pizza was amazing but if we had a better option we would prefer to go elsewhere.

We could order a table half an hour in advance for our arrival on Thursday. Dishes are tasty and does not take too much time to prepare. Rucola salad with Parmesan and tomatoes, risotto with guancile (speck) and goat cheese were very nice. A gentleman, who served us was very professional and efficient.

The restaurant has a nice sunny terrace, but the food was really low quality. Our green leaf salads were just a bowl of rocket from a bag, not particularly fresh, with a couple of tomatoes and store-bought balsamic vinaigrette on it. The pasta was really basic, too salty - we had trouble finishing it. The hosts seem to be Italian but, unfortunately, this is not the Italian food we were looking for.

We accidentally came to this restaurant thinking it was the one our hotel was booked for us. I politely told the waiter/manager we had a reservation. My German is not fantastic but definitely passable. He told us we did not have a reservation and then it occurred to me that I might be at the wrong restaurant. I apologised and asked the name again and explained I must have come to the wrong restaurant. He suddenly flew into a complete rage, arms up in the air yelling at me… it was completely uncalled for and definitely caused a scene in a restaurant full of people having dinner. We still had a few nights left in Engelberg but would never consider going to a place where someone would start yelling and screaming throwing their arms in the air just because someone got lost! Terrible service

Very good place for Italian pizza. Pizza was was good, however not exceptional. It was excalty what you would expect. The wine we ordered (merlot based blend per glasses) was not the best we had. I would recommend it for easy dinner, however I am not sure whether I will come back.

Have no complain for the pizza or the service itself but we were surprised with the only vegetarian dish on the menu... A small portion of veg quiche for around 30 chf !!! Wow, found it very expensive bfor what was on the plate. Next time, better have a pizza margarita !

I wanted to have lunch outside on the terrace in the shade. When I arrived there was a table for two ready to go and with no reservation sign. The waiter was directing me to a table which was not set - in almost full sun. I asked to be placed at the vacant table in the shade. He stated that I was alone and that the other table was for three people. He then walked off, came back and put a reservation sign on the table. At one point a solo visitor walked in and asked for a table in the shade. This person got the table! Nobody joined her for all the time I was there. Arrogant and condescending restaurant staff is not my cup of tea! p.s. food was good, nonetheless https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g188063-d3747861-r920798169-Al_Monastero-Engelberg_Canton_of_Obwalden.html#

My daughter is coeliac and they had advertised gluten free but alas rhe pizza bases were like cardboard - seemed frozen. They charged us CHF 7 for tap water - when we questioned this they said it was because I didn’t order any wine even though my husband had a beer. We would not recommend this restaurant. Finally when we asked to take the remaining bits of pizza home they put the non gluten pizza in foil with the gluten pizza - needless to say we had to throw it away - not a pleasant experience and very expensive for 4 mediocre pizzas

Ci dispiace che siete rimasti insoddisfatti, ma i servizi come l'acqua si pagano. Se le pizze erano mediocri come mai volevate portarle a casa? Comunque faremo tesoro delle vostra opinione.
