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.

Absolutely recommended. Owners treat us like family. Menu is extensive. We had starters, pasta and pizza which are all well made. Try the Italian plate ( one can expect cold cut meat and cheese but you get a germ of seafood, excellent) don’t oversee a reservation to secure your table because the place has a well earned customer queue

Remarkable restaurant experience! The owner is a classic italian host. Treats you like you've known each other for ages. The food is fairly priced and very delicious (had the homemade pesto with fresh pasta). You walk in as a stranger, leave as a friend. I was blown away by the friendliness.

This place is located just a short stroll up from the busy lakeside of Montreux. We've been there 2 times during our 3-day stay, which means, we just loved it! Authentic and delicious Italian food is served with a friendly smile and accompanied by excellent Italian wine. This restaurant has a character, a soul, and a cozy homely atmosphere, so typical for the South of Italy and so rare to find in Northern Europe. Can't praise it highly enough and we will definitely be back!

Wow. I don’t enjoy posting bad reviews. This was a very disappointing experience. The wait for food to arrive seemed eternal. To be slightly fair the manager warned us we’d have to wait. We didn’t think it would be almost an hour before the starter arrived. In the meantime we were brought a plate of ‘crostini’ the raw brown bread wasn’t even toasted and was not appetizing at all. When the octopus finally arrived it was very salty, but i was so hungry i ate it. My Wife politely passed. My Daughters steak was tough and overcooked. The pizza was ok but by then we were feeling underwhelmed and depressed. If you can’t provide an adequate service then maybe you shouldn’t be open. We shan’t be going back. Shame.

The food was really, really good. Compliments to the chef and for that the retaurant would have deserved 5 stars. Right at the start we have been informed by Mario (supposedly the owner) about the long waiting time for the food as we had no reservation. We had no problem at all with waiting a long time indeed for the food. At the end we wanted to pay, after having waited some more time after finishing our meals but Mario was outside chatting with clients or friends. We as clients had to stand up and approach/ask him for the bill. He replied that we should please wait for him to finish his cigarette bc god has also created the world only in 7 days etc. Indeed he took his time to finish said cigarette and chat, which was highly unprofessional und rude which is why the whole experience was overshadowed in a negative way at the end unfortunately.

I just dined at Al Cilento and it was amazing!! The best Italian I’ve had in Switzerland! I had the carbonara which was cooked to perfection. My friend had the lasagna which was equally as good. The portions were very gracious, but we managed to somehow fit in Tiramisu and ice cream for dessert which I highly recommend. The owner was very funny and made for an entertaining evening.

We had a wonderful meal! The restaurant was a beautiful and easy walk from our hotel. The owner made our meal most enjoyable! Beware... English is frowned upon (😜) which makes it for an even more hilarious evening! : We ordered bruschetta, lasagna and carbonara. All dishes were perfectly prepared and we could not pick a favorite. The wine paired wonderfully and the tiramisu for dessert was divine. Finished it off with a proper espresso! We will absolutely be coming back on our next visit to Montreux. Be prepared… rumor has it the food can age you 15+ years… it’s that good!! :)

You know when you first walk in and are greeted as an old friend that you are in for a treat and we were not disappointed! We split a ham and mushroom pizza as a starter, then had the most unique and delicious pasta. It was fresh made ravioli filled with spinach and ricotta in a a saffron cream sauce sprinkled with bits of fried ham and sun dried tomatoes. Wow!

This is some kind of secret tip for italian food in Montreux. If you like traditional italian food, a hilariously funny owner, and an overall great experience, go for this restaurant. Worth the walk up the hill in Montreux and an really welcome alternative to the overall luxury (of often wannabe luxury) flair of the main city of Monteux and it’s other restaurants and bars.

When it comes to quality and price, you won't find a better Italian restaurant in Montreux. Situated in the old and elevated part of the town, it can be reached by the 206 bus from the railway station (get off at Rue Industrielle), and it is easy to bus back or simply walk down Rue de Marche after your meal. This unpretentious restaurant has both a wide choice of dishes and a friendly and amusing proprietor (Mario). I recommend the Ravioli del Presidente (spinach and ricotta) or the Sole Meuniere, accompanied by local Montreux white wine. When we are next in the area, this will be the first restaurant we visit.

In June 2022, after a long day in Montreux we decided to have some dinner near the lake. On Google Maps we found this restaurant "Al Cilento" and after looking online at the menu we decided to go there. This restaurant is not far from the lake, but still it is not anymore in the hyped region of restaurants along the lakeside. The restaurant is really cozy and the owners are very sympathetic. We ordered an entry composed of aperol spritz and bruschette, which were really good. Our main dish was the Ravioli del Presidente and Parmigiana Ninetta. Both tasted great and you can immediately tell that it is an authentic italian restaurant. We enjoyed a lot our conversation with the owner and the dinner overall. We will definitely come back here to try some other dishes. La mezza Siciliana :)

First class Italian food, and other local dishes, in a simple and charming locale away from the crowds. The host is very engaging, and a native of Napoletana. Freshly made pasta, and the chef maximised the flavours spectacularly. What a place!

Our best dining experience in Europe. The owner, Mario, was the highlight. He sang to us, teased us and provided great entertainment while serving good food. Highly recommend you stop by this place for a meal.

Had booked in advance, arrived on time. Menus provided in French and although we can get by and guess the menu options ,not ideal. Owner told us he did not speak English. Before we ordered he said that the pizza oven was off broken which again reduced our menu options.

We ordered spaghetti ( home made ) " ai vogonle". The owner, Mario, confirmed that the clams were fresh but that he didn't know where they came from. As soon as we left the restaurant, we felt a heaviness in our stomachs, followed by vomiting, which lasted all night. This is unacceptable !
