They have a value menu - very decent prices for Lausanne, which meant I went time and time again. The carbonara is the best I've had and the tiramisu is great too. The only thing that lets it down occasionally is the service - there...More

Arrived in Lausanne tired and I was shocked at prices in Hotel restuarant. Wondered around a wet miserable Sunday to find this place and had the special menu. The most devine mushroom risotto, with a glass of really lovely red wine (montepulciano) and panacotta. Excellent...More

Great service it has to be said, but unfortunately the food was just average, especially for what we paid for it

I visited Da Carlo several time, this is an average quality Italian. If your expectation level is a little bit high I don't recommend this restaurant. Service staff's approach is always very friendly, location is good, its menu covers different varieties and price is good.

Decent pizza and decent "formula" (pizza + dessert + drink = 30 chf). The place is very noisy and crowded but relatively Ok. Beware of the prices of drinks: they are not indicated on the menu and they can represent quite a surprise (7 chf...More

I've been eating regularly in this restaurant for about 25 years now. I'm such a huge fan of Italian cuisine that I'm testing as many Italian restaurants as I can... but in Lausanne, I always end up coming back Da Carlo... Is it the fabulous...More
