Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

After spending some time in Switzerland following our visit to Italy, we found ourselves craving for Italian cuisine and were not disappointed. We discovered this cute restaurant set in a cozy and inviting atmosphere. The waitstaff was exceptionally patient, taking the time to clear our...questions regarding the food. This hidden gem in Lausanne is a delightful find!More

Typical southern Italian restaurant, small but well run by a “calabrese” family. Gets pretty full (not very big) so better to reserve in advance.

Real Italian food! Definitely, a top Italian restaurant with decent prices. Staff was lovely especially our waiter Kevin - I still cannot believe his name is Kevin, maybe it should be Carlo? Very sweet & helpful! The place needs more seating. We went this week...during a heat wave & dining inside with no AC was not an option for me. If you want real Italian food while in Lausanne - go here! Make a reservation though! Thanks Kevin 🤣 and Maria!More

28Feb2022 I had dinner last week, (unique and only deconfinement step for me in 3 months)and I have been tested positive this week end. After thinking about it, the restaurant is packed, and ventilation inexistant. Wait 2 / 3 month before going there.

We have been to this place twice already and it is a really nice place. It was really busy and cosy before Covid and after covid a bit empty due to the socially distanced tables, but still always a great atmosphere. It is excellent for...both couples and bigger groups. They had really nice wines and we especially liked the pastas and the meat that is not on the menu. The meat is cooked and seasoned perfectly. We would recommend this place highly and it is one of the best Italians we have tried in Lausanne. The other one that is on a similar level would be st Pauls. After comparing we thought these were better than Ulivo in general for decor, lighting, staff and food quality. Altho on a side note, we enjoyed the dessert at Ulivo the most. Hope that this is helpful!More

Busy is a good sign. The restaurant is intimate and was quite full about 7:45 when we arrived. Reservations are a must I think. We ordered what the waiter recommended, antipasto, a pasta primera and the sea bass. They brought the whole fish out to...show us before it was cooked. Excellent! We were treated to limoncello as an aperitif. Wonderful place! Thank youMore

Our friend referred us to this wonderful small restaurant in Lausanne. From the moment you enter, you get a great vibe, lots Italian being spoken. Small bar serving all drinks. Service excellent. We started with very good Aperol Spritz and a nice white wine. The...salads were beautifully fresh, and a seafood platter of octopus calamari ect. very good! The two pasta dishes were spectacular one with calamari and a sauce. The second with swordfish and calamari both spectacular! The tiramisu was divine. We highly recommend this restaurant.More

We were given little attention and were appalled by the people who attend this restaurant: loud and nasty individuals lacking class. Food was not special either. Maybe we were unlucky.

My friends and I ate here to celebrate a friend's birthday. What a special find. The food, service, and ambience were all top notch. I was extremely impressed with the quality and flavors of the food. Not to mention that the service was top notch....My friends were visiting from the US and our server spoke perfect English. I'm definitely coming back and would highly recommend to others.More

This is not your typical Italian restaurant where one would drop in for a quick bite. This small authentic restaurant is buzzing with life and atmosphere, so reserve a table in advance. The food is great, and I love any restaurant that can pull off...serving the steak "blue" A truly lovely experience. The wine list is good and the suggestions paired well with our food selection. I can't wait to go back!More

We had our Christmas dinner party in this restaurant. The place is a bit small and hard to reserve a table but the food is really worth it. The staff are all very friendly too. Amazing experience worth trying more than once.
