Three couples (USA) made reservations on a Friday evening at Barbatti's. We were staying at a nearby hotel and had read positive reviews. We were seated quickly and given menus. Our server spoke decent English and was able to adequately answer our questions about the menu items. We ordered a variety of dishes ranging from linguine, veal, ravioli, sea bass, and risotto. There were more veal items than any other meats offered. Our food came in a reasonable time and dishes were hot. Our food was fine. Bread was good ! We had no complaints about the quality. Our server was busy but did his best to bring water (hard to get ice). There are many, many restaurants in Lucerne. We heard good things about all of them. Food is expensive, but enjoy the atmosphere of dining in a beautiful city! Restrooms are located in basement. Make sure to walk around the interior to enjoy the art work.

We ate here on a Saturday night -- our hotel made reservations for us 1.5 weeks in advance although I noticed some couples walked in and were seated without reservations. Service was very good and we enjoyed our dinner. This was a great choice!

On a lovely side street with a nice view, we enjoyed a scrumptious dinner tonight. The Parma ham with fresh mozzarella started our dinner off just right. We had two veal dishes and the grilled prawn special. We loved them all. The wine was good as well as the coffee.

Everywhere in Switzerland tourist areas seem expensive, with a 20–30 CHF minimum dish price wherever you go. At Barbatti, at least, you get wonderful food with first-rate service. What's more – shock horror – an amazing children's menu. A wonderful Toscan experience out of Italy.

The Barbatti was a great Italian styled restaurant to stop and eat at. The service and food were a very good standard and I had a great dinner here on my recent trip. The staff speak multiple languages, which helps a lot. Good stuff.
