Was there with a friend, ordered simple meals and asked for something nice to drink. The boss came back with a bottle of red, which was really good, no problem. The big surprise was when we got the check and discovered the price of the bottle... 160 CHF + food = 240 CHF... I think that such an unusual price... More

I tried the most famous pizza places of Lausanne and this is the best! I'm Italian and you recognize good pizzas by: -the dough -quality of ingredients -baking method you recognize good and original pizzerias by: -menu compositions (crazy matches are unoriginal) -elegance of the place (too elegant places are fake, they just want to charge you more) -the time...

Poor pizza dough, not even thin, and tasteless; the tomato base was obviously from a tin of tomato concentrate, the ham was gross and not of a refined Italian quality. Only the parmesan cheese was acceptable! And the price for that is 26.5 CHF ! And also the prosecco wine they served was almost hot!

Amazing truffle meals that you do not find easily. Burrata con tartufo, beef con tartufo etc. Great wines and wonderful service.

Un exception in Switzerland, where service is not really a strength, this restaurant has really exceptional service. Personnel very kind, attentive to provide you the best service. Food is also outstanding. Price is higher then average in Switzerland.

We just had a very fancy italian dinner there and, although it was pricey, the food was great. Seafood Risotto was a highlight! Rice vooked to perfection, creamy but firm! Now, if you want to strike a good deal, get pizzas to go, thats a good deal!!!

They spoke italian to us even if we spoke french at first. the pizza wasn't that big, but still very good and we also saw many enormous pasta dishes... More

I forgot how nice the staff is here at Molisana, and the food is absolutely made like your mamma does it. Enjoy the Pasta Fantasia, a tastig session of fresh home made pasta. Do not forget the Tiramisu: sublime is only the first name. Buon appetito.

If you want a typical Italian restaurant this is the place to go. Very good food, excellent service, and I love hearing the Italian accent when the servers are taking our orders. Best to make reservations even for a dinner on a week night. Only downside is trying to find parking near the restaurant - almost impossible if you don't... More
