Even though we were the first ones to arrive, we were served as last. We were told, quite impolitely, that we had to reserve a table to be served "on time" despite the fact that we told the waitress in the beginning we had a ballet performance we were attending. This was very disappointing. On the other hand I have... More

Delicious fresh pasta, great atmosphere and great service. They were also very accommodating as we were short of time.

Great variety of fresh pastas and pizzas, home made bread and sauces. The biggest collection of splendid biodynamic wine I've seen so far. Juices and home made infusions made with love. A lot of vegetarian, gluten-free and vegan options. Vegan planchette with the artisanal truffata and the vegan soup of the day is worth to try even for proud carnivores.... More

I would rate this place 5+ star up to a few months ago when its differentiation and value was its unique menu mainly based on tasty and price worthy tapas. In fact, it's been in my top three in Lausanne for years. Staff was and still is excellent. Suddenly though, in the last months - for some obscure reason -,... More

Definitely the best pizza around Lausanne. Nice restaurant, kind staff, excellent meals. Tapas are a bit expensive, but worth it imho.

This is the place to go, if you wish to have a nice meal that will not cause you a bankrupt. The place is nice and the service is polite. Food and beverages are in high quality.

Best pizzas in town.The pizzas blanche are to die for with fresh ingredients: have been going since 2010 and have more often than not taken the caprese. Just mozzarella di bufala, tomatoes, basil and olive oil. You don't need more for happiness. This is the place you go for the beauty in simplicity, be it in their pasta, pizza or... More

We have been served nivcely and proposed a lot of variety of tapas (cold & warn). It was delicious and the waiters were kind, offering us... More

We go to eat there roughly once a week/fortnight, and this place is great. Ben is a fantastic waiter, and the menu is just superb. The tapas is excellent. In particular, the aubergines gratinees, albondigas, patatas bravas and pan y lomo. I'm a big fan of the salads, bruschetta, pasta & pizza, it's all tasty food and reasonably priced (bearing...

Even if Baz'art looks like a place - cozy, small, a bit away from the city center - the people working there have been quite rude in the past 6 months. It should be a "cafe", therefore a place where people can sit and have a beer....not necessarly a real meal as in Restaurant. But if you go there just... More
