Delicious Italian food at a good price and always a fantastic atmosphere! Ask Odette for her wine suggestions.

“Very good Italian food”
Reviewed 19 December 2013

Situated a little bit outside the city center (15 minutes walk), but nevertheless worth going there for their nice Italian food. The meat as well as the home made pasta are excellent. The service is friendly and the place is really cozy.

“A tiny place with great food and warm welcome”
Reviewed 11 July 2013

This restaurant needs to be highlighted as the "best kept secret" in Lausanne. The place is charming, a contemporary interior design, a small terrace. The owner a charming lady has a unique sense of welcome and the italian cuisine is just magnificient. The "chef" is an italian lady, she needs to be highlighted too.
The location, is not in the trendiest area of Lausanne, but not so far from the lake and the hyper center of the city, it is a within a short distance from the main station.
A real epicurean place, just a regret, the wine on the list are sort of expensive, but the owner serves some of them by the glass (even if not rated on the list).
I highly recommend this place

“An authentic Italian restaurant beyond pizzas and pasta”
Reviewed 16 March 2012

Chez Odete (this is the correct spelling), is a new restaurant with authentic Italian food that goes beyond your traditional 'import-flavored' flavors: the meat and fish dishes have tastes and flavors that one does only find in Italy and therefore represents a true 'travel experience'. Even the somewhat austere decor (or is it the lighting?) reminds me of Italy and only underscores the spectacle in your dish. This is not a 'high-end' restaurant (there are a couple like that in this town), this is your average-priced neighborhood restaurant. Even service could not be more Italian: a gentleman with the right mix of politeness and arrogance...the lunch special (3 courses for CHF 21.-) is a steal, unfortunately under little Italian influence...
