We go there regularly since we live nearby. Pasta and Pizze are excellent, made only with fresh and well selected products. Do not expect complex and sophisticated menu, but if you want high quality traditional Italian cuisine, this is the place! In addition, the service is very friendly and there is a lovely terrace with trees and rain protection if... More

Stella is a traditional Italian restaurant, and has regional and seasonal specialties that you don't find in many Italian restaurants in Switzerland. It has a very extensive and quite interesting menu. Prices are high, even by Swiss standards. The decor is much like you'd find in a nice grotto restaurant in a small town in Italy. All that is good... More

I visit La Stella every time I come to Lausanne. Always excellent. Great truffles in season. Good wine list. Family run. Not to be missed.

It is located a little bit far from the city centre but you should try if you like real traditional Italian cuisine. The best pizza and pastas in the city with a good hospitality. I tried two different times and its quality was the same. Especially when I invited one of my Italian gourmet friends to La Stella. Finally, I... More

Not very inspired, but classic Italian fare, and all good. Pizzas excellent, pasta and all specials as well. Friendly service, you get what you expect.

Very nice garden that makes lunch during summer a special treat. Food is always tasty and their pizzas are excellent. Make sure to book for lunch if you want a place in the garden.

I have been visiting la Stella ever since it opened more than 25 years ago. It's quite an accomplishment to keep this kind of higher class Italian restaurant going especially as it is a bit more expensive. They have a good base menu and a seasonal menu. All dishes are good, well prepared and presented. The table is well dressed... More

Have been here a couple times and is always very well taken care of. Last night we had a pizza and a pasta. The pizza was (as always) over average but the pasta didn't taste anything. We spoke to the owner who was as nice as ever, let us pick a new pasta course without any hesitation or sour remarks.... More
