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.

This restaurant definitely worth a visit if you like Italian food. Although a bit expensive, this is my favorite Italian place in the city. The dishes are excellent and the waiters very professional. Definitely recommend the home-made pasta there as starter 🤩

The restaurant is located outside Lausanne, near Malley. Nice decoration. Appetizers offer include focaccia and cold cuts. Italian dishes include homemade pastas, fish and meat prepared in oven. Truffle pizza was great and also the pasta. The meat was not cooked enough for my taste....Nice place but the bill could be expensive with the winesMore

A lovely restaurant. The food is absolutely top notch with attentive and friendly service. There is a good wine list with nice wine by the glass. This is one of the best Italian restaurants in Lausanne.

For me, 4 stars go to this place that clearly deserves to be tried. We had a very descent meat and pasta together with 2 good starters. I usually give 5 stars to a place when "you should cancel your reservation elsewhere". Poesia deserves 4...and is on a very good position to get better.More

Interesting offer of Italian dishes (off the trodden paths) which tasted amazing, superb service, very original and friendly priced wines, beautiful interior and a small but nice terrace. Soon back for more: a nice find!!

La Poesia is a bit far from the downtown hotel we stayed in, but it was well worth the easy train ride. The food was delicious. The staff spoke English and understood which dishes could be made gluten free. And there were many options! Thanks...to Antonella, whose information and humor made our dinner even better.More

We enjoyed a casual Friday evening dinner there. Was our first time and what a nice surprise. Good quality, friendly service and a very relaxing atmosphere. Not easy to get a table so do book in advance. Also parking was not so easy to find...- next time we will take an Uber. We’ll be back!More

The staff, the food, the atmosphere are just great! The meat is cooked in a wood oven. Delicious! I truly recommend this restaurant.

We took the special of the day (rigatoni with eggplant and ricotta) and the risotto of the day (squid ink and prawns), very good, nicely prepared and presented, cooked just right. Very interesting wine list, we had a great Ripasso. The staff is friendly and...attentive. Overall a nice place for good Italian food.More

First visit at La Poesia. At first sight, you would not bet on it as the location is below average (and parking is an issue) but once you push the door, you enter a lovely universe. Really a positive surprise. Food is fresh and tasty,...and portions are very generous. Staff is friendly; kudos to Francesco, who's dynamism, positive attitude and humor added that little something to our evening.More

The food was good but the service was very far from to the italian warm athmosphere. With a bill at 320.- for 3 persons ...a small Limoncello would have been appreciated.
