Perfect food with outstanding quality. We tried pizza and chicken curry with rice. One remark: you cannot pay by card just by cash

Very small cosy Bistrostyle Restaurant managed by friendly ladies from the southern most part of Switzerland Tiicino. The owner cook courageously interprets the traditional dish Raclette in a most creative way with Luganighe sausage and cheeses from Ticino, well spiced with herbs in a delicious bread crèpe for a pittance of CHF 20.0 including a delicious tessinois lemonade. The staff shows their pleasure when asked about their interesting menu, which they change according to season, They have a integrated shop where they sell organic produce of Ticino, They know their produce well and give excellent advice.

We came across this great cafe / takeaway after reading a review. In the madness and expense of Lucerne, this little cafe was real find and served tasty food. Our 3 yr old was hungry and other than paying out a fortune or going to a McDs, this hit the spot. Thank you to the 2 ladies who were very helpful. The owner was from the Italian side of Switzerland and the taste and ingredients clearly were influenced by this. Than you.

Italian food and products like Parma Ham and Mozzarella are known worldwide. However around the world it is quite a challenge to still find the authentic taste of real D.O.P Italian products that the owner of this tiny and cosy place in old town Lucern has. Their Piadina, crêpes, pasta are not only a great palate experience but they are also very original in the combination of products the owner offers as well as in the names of dishes! We recommend a visit to this little gem to all gourmets and food passionate that want to have simple but authentic Italian tastes.

We were looking for a local restaurant with good crepés and asked a local. They recommended this place and said that they had really good crepés. Wow, they were right. The owner was there and was very welcoming. As Vegetarians, we found many, many choices of food there. I think she was surprised by how many crepés we ate, including excellent dessert crepes. Had we had more time, I suspect we would have gone back. The food was excellent and the owner (Laura?) was very friendly. She even recommended truly authentic high quality Swiss chocolate (Sprüngli), when we asked. Hopefully you'll have a chance to go there when in Lucerne.
