We came to this restaurant only because it is top rated by Tripadvisor. And, oh boy, we were not disappointed! Simple setting, service with an Italian attitude and food which was mind-bogglingly good. I took the the spéciale du chef which was, let's understate this, well worth taking. Beware that reservations are practically mandatory: We sat near the door and saw a number of walk-in couples turned back because the restaurant was full.

Very good pasta dishes from Calabria. Yet the portions are rather small and pricey. Good selection of wines, not a bargain either.
We used to go to this place regularly when it opened but soon noticed a slight drop in quality. All in all and since you have to book way ahead, it is not a must.

During a business trip to Lausanne, a friend of mine advised to visit this place and made a booking there.

From first sight it seemed that Amici was a busy restaurant where making a booking in advance was a must. We were quickly seated and served. Started with some drinks and then moved to pasta. There are many good Italian restaurants everywhere, but the places that offer exceptional pasta outside of Italy are not that many. Add up the quick and relatively professional ,efficient and friendly service and you will have a top-notch place for lovers of Italian cuisine.

The only disadvantage of the place (and hence the lack of 5 stars) is that the space is too small and the four of us were literary squeezed on a table for four. It could have been so much better if there was enough space to relax, to enjoy the drinks and to fully let yourself be amazed by the excellent food.

In conclusion, if you are in Lausanne and looking for a top place to enjoy pasta, Amici is the best recommendation I can give.... but be sure to make a booking well in advance!

All thumbs up from the full course meal to the warm hospitality of the staff to the very nice cozy ambiance. We were told they update their menu on the monthly basis, but I must say, everything we tried exceeded expectations.
