Had a nice meal, average price. The service was very good, but not very busy at the time. Smallish eating area, but right on the lake so very nice views and ambiance.

located at the hotel national in luzern (but not the best restaurant in this hotel) you will find average pasta, average carpaccio, good meat and roasted lamb steaks at high price, service to improve and such a small and tight tables that you will hardly enjoy your meal

i cannot recomend this place, never mind if you are visiting luzern or whether you stay at the hotel. there are better and cheaper places in the neighbourhood

the decor of this restaurant is unique. Huge old windows, high pillars and real Italian decoration give a very special flavor. Here you get all Italian specialities, a lot of made themselves. Ask for home made pastas, so delicious! They are not always on the menu card, but most often you will get them. If you go in autumn time you will get the noodles with fresh truffle or stirred in front of in a huge piece of cheese. They have a great selection of wine. If you are a connoisseur of Italian wine then ask the chef de service for a hint. He always has some special bottles which are not on his list.
At the end you should not miss the Tiramisu. Of course home made, but a real Tiramisu, not frozen, not stuffy so light, so excellent. Then an Italian espresso and if you like I'm persuaded you will enjoy their special Grappa or Limoncello. But I would recommend to book a table. It can be rather full. A little unpleasant
it can get a little bit noisy, ok as in Italy.
