The place was filled and we only had time from 19 - 20:30h till the next guests would get our table. The ambiance was good. We were two, the service was good but they focused more on the big tables making us wait a bit too long at times. My friend had the daily pasta dish: pasta langoust, and I... More

Highly recommend this excellent place for a dinner in Lausanne, but better book the table in advance because the restaurant was very full. The atmosphere was warm and friendly. The staff was very attentive, extremely knowledgeable and provided excellent recommendations. On top of the high class dinner, the prices are reasonable. We left having had a three course dinner, a... More

Two couples, including one Italian (handy for translations!) and three Brits - Saturday evening meal - superb atmosphere, superb food and wine. It's a warm, comfortable place with the most friendly, informative, helpful and talkative (in Italian) waiter and wine waiter. There's a noticeable Italian atmosphere and a passion for quality food. The size of some of the steaks on... More

We love Italian food and this restaurant is as close as we can get to Italy. I had a dish of tagliolini al tartuffo on a lunch date... It was deceiving on first bite. The pepper on it took away all the flavor. I complained and the dish was immediately taken back to the kitchen. Came back just as expected:... More

I made a reservation for a group of six ex-pats at Ristorante St. Paul and it was a fantastic experience from the get-go! Warm and friendly reception by true Italians who are passionate about their food. While we did not order the legendary "T-bone for 2," we saw many being served up and they looked fabulous (next visit)! We went... More

Great food, great service, great cannolli!!! The place is small. The food is expensive, the opened-bottle wine was nice too (Calabbria).

I come from the southern Hemisphere and frequently have cravings for a big fat steak, cooked to perfection! In 17 years in Switzerland I have rarely found one until I recently discovered this restaurant. Beefsteak Florentina is mind-blowing!!! Other guests at our table who weren`t into meat also loved their meal, apparently the lobster pasta is excellent. Staff and ambience... More

Short introduction: I'm Italian, I think I know what good food is (...sorry I'm arrogant), I cook and seldom go to Italian Restaurants besides Italy. I live in Lausanne since many years. It has been the first time at the St Paul and was so positively enchanted by the food, the place (small and cosy) and the team there. We... More
