“Do you like focaccia?”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

I get sandwiches here, usually to go, and they come on fresh-baked, home-made, oily focaccia that really snaps. I've been several times and tried several ingredients - they are really good, and the place has an authentic Italian vibe, even if it is a bit sanitized, as is the custom in the region. It is worth going here for lunch if you are visiting - or on the weekend if you live here. You can of course get charcuterie and wines to go - plus some other special Italian treats.

“Mauro is an Italian Deli that makes one of the best Focaccias in Lausanne”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Ambiance-decor: 3/5 The shop is located at the heart of Lausanne, easily accessible from everywhere. It is is modern but small, and there is no possibility to sit or even stand while eating, so everything is to go. The place is very crowded during lunch time with students form the nearby high school.

Food: 4/5 They specialize in very good Focaccias with several choices available. I usually take the Diko Focaccia which is roast-beef, mayonnaise, mozarella and salad. The bread is very good but a bit too greasy to my taste. They also offer a very wide choice of pastas, pizzas and other typical italian food. Everything is very fresh so this is a big plus.

Service: 4/5 Mauro will be usually the one serving you your Focaccia, and he is the typical nice italian guy who likes to know his customers and chat with them. All the staff are very efficient but not always smiling. The prices are very decent (around 10 Sfr. for the Diko) which makes it a good value.
