The food was good but not exceptional regarding the position in the TripAdvisor ranking. The service was very slow and the waitresses were unfriendly and unworried for our happiness. We need to pickup the cheese by ourself. If the manager or the chef were sick...this is not our problem. You were probably close during 2 months (covid-19) so you need to be alert and reactive for the client otherwise close your restaurant.More

We just came back from a very upsetting dinner. Food was good, ambience was great, but unfortunately they got our order wrong so it meant that one person on a table of six received their food when everyone else had already finished. Not only did...they get the order wrong (and therefore late) but they even charged us for the dish that no one had ordered when the final bill came. We got our money back for that dish, but only after we pointed it out, and there was no attempt whatsoever to make it up to us in any way. No gesture. We paid and left, but when my husband finally spoke to the manager about what had happened as we were leaving, all she said was “you got your money back, right (for the extra dish)?”. Absolutely appalling. What a disappointment. I wonder if that would have been the attitude if we were white people. Seriously, I doubt it.More

Came here on a whim without a reservation (would recommend) Food was good, great glass of wine and the service was good. Typical European service model, but they were attentive and made sure at I was taken care of. The waiter spoke English, but the...menu is German/Italian/French. Between the three, I was able to decipher the menu. Would highly recommend.More

We wanted to find a restaurant for lunch that wasn't in the center of Lucerne tourist center. We saw a decent rating on this restaurant and it was on the way from our hotel to the center of town. We arrived around 12:30-1 and it...didn't start off well as it was very busy and at first they turned us away a little brusquely. But just before we got out the door they waved us back in and said they arranged a table for our group of 5. Everything got much better from there. Three of us had meals off the fixed price lunch menu and all were fabulous (2 steaks and one pasta dish). The other two in our group split a pizza. All the food and drinks were fabulous and it is one of the most memorable meals we had on our trip to Switzerland. Great short walk across the river to get away from center. Mainly business people from 11-1 for lunch.More

The pizza was delicious! They are so accommodating, customized whatever we wanted. The bread with oil, spices, and vinegar was amazing! George Roberto will give you what you want, and Michelle will take care of all of your service needs! Loved it!

Great food, fantastic service from Ana Paula. Romantic too! So glad we popped in! Will be back! Located just next to the lake. Just 3 mins walk from Chapel bridge.

I was in Lucerne for the first time in a very long time and was quite pleased to have come across La Baracca upon setting out on my first day (a Tuesday) weary from travel and very hungry. It ended up being just a very...short walk from my hotel. The staff at La Baracca were friendly and attentive and gave me a warm welcome. They were also very helpful with interpreting the German menu (my knowledge of German being pretty much nill). I had the pizza special (tuna and grape tomatoes). It was prepared quickly and was absolutely delicious and totally satisfied my hunger. The atmosphere was warm and friendly, the food delicious and I liked the modern décor. I recommend La Baracca without hesitation to anyone traveling to Lucerne.More

This was our first stop in Lucerne, and everything about it was great. The service was prompt and excellent, the food was delicious, and the prices were very reasonable. Located off the main tourist area, it ended up being a quiet, peaceful lunch that we...thoroughly enjoyed. I’d recommend it for anyone looking for a good meal!More

No, it doesn’t. You’ll have to find parking on the street or in one of the parking garages (just follow the signs).
