I come here very often for Lunch. They have 2 to 3 different menus with salad and dessert for only 19.-. Always fresh food from the season. They also add special ingredients to make a food out of the ordinary, but always with an Italian hint. The service is really good too. Stella is very friendly and knows the habits of her most regular customers.

I highly recommend this place! :)

We celebrated a belated anniversary there and we couldn't have picked a better place in Lausanne. The pasta was made on site and was fresh. Excellent vegetarian options! The wine list, though not extensive; was reasonably priced especially for Lausanne.
It is tucked away near the cathedral and on a lovely day, you can sit on the terrace to eat.

Situated in the heart of the old town, this is the place where you should go during your trip in Lausanne. The food is simply perfect, freshly cooked everyday by someone that has obviously the passion of creating a pleasurably experience for all of his customers. The pastas are always perfectly cooked, sauce are tasty and with true Italian personality.
The service is also very professional, pleasant and dedicated to the customers. The waitress (I think she owns the place) can speak Italian, French, English, German and Romanian so you won't have any difficulties to get served or to get something from the menu translated. We also a chat with her during coffee and it was very pleasant and funny. They have an upstairs room, a downstairs room and also a terrace. Oh, and also don't forget to order a dessert at the end of your meal, they are also freshly cooked by the waitress and are delicious. A place to visit !

Buonissimo. Gentilissimo. Vuoi tornare. I had pasta and then bistecca con verdura. Nicely arranged and very tasty, exactly right.

We went twice in the summer. During the week they have a good business lunch/ menu du jour offer as well as a good menu (carte). We wanted to change the set menu a little - rice instead of potatoes which caused a little fuss (Chef may have taken offence!), but they obliged in the end. Service a little slow when busy but otherwise friendly. It's in a great location - in the Cite and seconds from the Cathedral. Sat outside in the sun both times - lucky to get tables.
