Very disappointed with the menu and the stodgy apricot pudding was bare edible. Service was slow. Maybe suitable for groups but certainly not for couples on their last night of a Swiss holiday.

If you want to choose from a menu then you should not enter this restaurant. There is no fixed catalogue of dishes. Every day there is a new menu so the customers will not get bored. I never write a review about how the food tastes like, it is so objective. The restaurant is well decorated, wood being the prominent... More

In our opinion, This is never the No 1 restaurant in Luzern!! Having eaten in numerous excellent restaurants the quality of food, the choice of wines and the respective pricing are all indicitave of a restaurant which is grossly over-rated. To be charged 56 Francs for a standard Spanish table wine was insulting! We cannot understand how this could be... More

We ate here because of its TA rating but were frankly disappointed. Food was OK but just not worth the money as the salad, pasta and dessert dishes could easily be prepared by almost anyone in their own kitchen in five minutes. Service was slow - acceptable for us but we noticed another couple waiting over an hour between their... More

OK see we had read the reviews. everyone was right we did wonder where we were going. An industrial park!! But then we opened the door and walked into a place filled with laughter and conversation. Staff were excellent and what no menu? that's correct. You are informed what is being served that evening and that is it and it... More

Very welcoming and romantic atmosphere. The food was so well thought out and each course and bite were amazing! Very affordable for Switzerland too and they gave great wine recommendations!

I use to take friends here that come to visit me in lucerne. The ambiente is unique, the food always fresh ans tasty. I love to lunch here when, unfortunately quite often, the weather in lucerne is awful. Grottino 13/13 takes me in an other world. And only if it is for an hour or so...

Great and cozy option. We did arrive near their closing time, and with no reservation. Being the number one trip advisor restaurant in Lucerne, we thought we wouldn't get a seat, but they (and I mean all team including kitchen) agreed to make a space to serve us fast and good. Food was very good and service was perfect. The... More

This restaurant was an adventure in dining. More of a bring it on set menu with 4 courses. Charming, rustic setting in an out of the way location in Lucerne. Only a 10 min cab ride, well worth the ride. A little pricey but worth every penny. Probably $100 person but Luzern tends to be expensive. FUN!

As many of the other reviews have mentioned, this restaurant is not in any fancy location and from the outside looks like nothing. Inside isn't much better, except for the warm and friendly welcome. A little chalkboard sitting on each table has a personal message to each dining group that's expected that evening. Our sign said "Welcome! We are excited... More
