If you go past rather silly names for pizzas e.g. maradona, brad Pitt, lady gaga, Barack Obama and so on, the pizzas are actually quite good. Pizzas are around 21 Franks each or subtract 5 Franks if you want to go with mini pizza.

The restaurant is clean but is lacking ambiance. It reminds me of cafes on airports i.e. tilled floors and chairs with metal legs for easy moping.

With over 100 pizzas to choose from, there should be something for everyone (as long as you want to have pizza!). There are some interesting toppings to choose from, including horse. The pizza I had was delicious and very filling. Service was good too. It is centrally located with a view of the Lake. Great if you want something fast and reasonably priced. Average price for a pizza is CHF22 (£15ish). They also have a small salad bar and a handful of grill and pasta dishes.

As we'd arrived in Ouchy quite late we were stuck to find somewhere fast to grab something to eat.
This cafe (wouldn't say restaurant) was just around the corner from our hotel.
Though they do have a vast range of pizza, I was sure our choice was frozen pizza, or at least the pizza base was.
The quality was ok, but nothing special, the price was reasonable, though we were there on an offer night, all pizza 14 CHF (~£10?).
The pasta was also 'ok', a bit stodgy...supermarket pre-pack quality.
The service was fast, and the chap who took our order was chatty and cheerful, then the chap who served us thereafter was miserable...
The place was quite busy compared to other places around it, though I'd put this down to its more of a fast food cafe....
Don't think I'd go again unless I was strapped for time....

Typical Italian style restaurant. Not much more to say. The food is good (not brilliant), the prices are reasonable and the service is ok. Most importantly for me, the food arrives quickly and you are able to eat dinner and get on with enjoying the rest of the night. For those of us that aren't used to eating dinner at 9pm, this place will serve you dinner at any time of the day!
Been here many times over the years and will keep coming back...

For a change, if you are looking for a pizza in Lausanne (and especially if you have kids), this is a great place to go to. They have a huge menu of creative pizzas at decent prices (by Swiss standards). The location is great. But best of all, they have a play area for kids with free video/arcade games that keeps the little ones out of your hair!
