“good italian food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2013

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel as a reasonably priced place where the locals go. They have good entrees and delicious bread. We enjoyed it.

“Good value, good taste”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2013

Two of us had a mixed plate of salads each as a starter. One of us had veal in a mushroom sauce with asparagus, the other delicious chicken live risotto; a bottle of very nice Sardinian wine and a bottle of water - CHF120. Given the quality of the food, the size of the portions and the very friendly and helpful service, this represents very good value in Switzerland....

“Good quality in the centre of an expensive city”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2013

As other reviewers have commented this restaurant is in an excellent location in Lausanne opposite the main railway station. The service was and the quality of food was very good. Obviously being Switzerland and Lausanne, in particular, prices are high. Our group had polenta, rostis and medallions. Another good aspect of this restaurant is that the staff speak numerous languages including English, French, Portuguese, Italian, German and Macedonian.

“Excellent food in a very practical location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2012

Just opposite the main train station, in a quite setting. We had perfect Ticinese specialities (Tocino=italian part of Switzerland), choosen from a large selection of dishes. Kind and efficient service. It may get busy, better call before.

“excellent Ticinese food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2012

I have been to this restaurant many times and every time I have ordered Ticinese food (risotto, polenta) and I have never been disappointed. Big servings and good wine as well. Don't expect an Italian restaurant here. Ticino is not part of Italy, but it's a canton of Switzerland!
