We were anxious to try this restaurant. For a traveler's first night in Lucerne, it might prove a bit hard to find. We took a cab, which are also not always easy to find in Lucerne! It is a cozy little place on the outskirts and very popular it seems. Much food, many courses, all good, but a bit much for senior appetites. It also is a full night's activity, so don't be in a hurry.

We had dinner here for our first night in Switzerland, and I was blown away! The ambience was wonderful, with a cozy cabin like feel. Each table had the reservation name written on a chalk board with a cute little quote underneath, it's the small things. It was a set menu and every single thing was delicious. It was a lot of food, but we ate it all, too good to waste. The service was also wonderful and friendly. I want to go back to Switzerland just to come here. Of course, none of our meals after this one were as great, so it really set the bar high!!

Hour hotel was near the central train station so we walked here and arrived without reservation. They were happy to seat us inside or out; we set inside for a change and it was very cozy (incandescent lighting and country charm). They decide the menu, all five courses, so we only chose the wine...which was a nice change after several countries and languages. Total bill was 200eur and that included a 50eur bottle of wine...but well worth it. Service, food and ambiance were the best. Only additional recommendation might be to make a reservation.

We coveted 1313 based on other great reviews on TripAdvisor, and we were not disappointed. The four course fixed menu, which is a unique offering each evening was fabulous. We are usually picky eaters, but every dish (pumpkin carrot cream bisque, orchetti with pomodoro and buffalo mozzarella- yum, sliced beef with parsley mashed potatoes). And the salad was prepared with an eggplant dressing - wow.

If you visit Lucerne, you should check this place out!

Visiting friends in Lucern was made even more special with a fantastic meal at Grottino 1313. All is served family style, and with many courses. The menu is a secret until you arrive. Everybody eats what the chief has prepared for that evening, so leave the picky eaters at home.

If you're adventurous enough to trust me, I'm sure you will not be disappointed in the meal, as it was an experience that was well worth the risk and the the time.

Enjoy!
