The restaurant (building) is actually an old theatre (renovated), the decor is amazing ...and that's just the context. The pizza was excellent same as the service.

Ok.... true we stayed for over two hours but common... do you really have to send us three different waiters to ask us if we want to drink something else in a span of 1 minute?? OK OK WE GOT IT WE'RE GOING, you industrial, fast-food, hurry-the-f-up, strictly-business mentality type restaurant!!! Fortunately you have amazing dough but have to learn ambiance and serenity come before making dough!

2:20 hours!!! BEAT THAT ... that is the time we stayed without getting kicked out... A RECORD!!

Dear Customer. Sorry if you felt that our staff was stressing you. In any way that is our purpose, on the opposite. We want our costumers to feel at ease, to have some fun, and to appreciate our traditional Italian cuisine. The Luigia is a restaurant-pizzeria that serves about 400 clients per day, not in a fast-food way; on the contrary, we want you to stay as long as you want. If our waiters ask you if you need something else, it is only for your own comfort and to make sure you are having a wonderful time with us. I will be pleased to welcome you personally, and to make sure you will have a great time at Luigia. Best regards, Michele Mancino, Restaurant’s manager.

I am going to confirm must of the previous comments from other advisors, very good welcome, pizza was good (I just would have cooked them few minutes more, just to be perfect), the downside are the price and the waiting side, this concept works better in geneva were I have the feeling the Luigia have faster turnover, (almost never waited there) here is the 3rd time we are waiting more than 40 minutes, and few weeks ago I tried to go also and told us to wait 45 minutes at 9.15 pm and to get a table at 10.00 pm, so we changed place. Overall is good to go there time to times, all the staff is friendly

Dear Antonio. Thank you so much for your kind remarks concerning our restaurant. As you know the Luigia in Lausanne opened not even a year ago, we already have such a success that the restaurant is always full. We tend to do our best for our clients not to wait too long, that’s why we invite you to wait at our bar with a nice drink and some home made appetizers. As you already know our concept, the Luigia is a restaurant-pizzeria based on a traditional Italian cuisine, using only fresh ingredients, a friendly and efficient staff, with prices that you cannot find anywhere else in Switzerland. Our Margherita is at Chf15,90.-, when the usual price in other pizzeria is at chf17.-. And note that we follow family’s recipes with a secret tomatoes sauce, again impossible to copy it. All of these details make of the Luigia a special place to come and to enjoy a unforgettable moment. Our main goal is to share our passion for our lovely country: Italy. Dear Antonio, we look forward to welcome you again at the Luigia! Best regards, Michele Mancino, Restaurant’s manager

Not bad but not outstanding for the price. Noisy. Service is so-so when it becomes crowded. Wines by the glass are expensive for what they are.

The Luigia is well known for the quality of its cuisine, the friendly service and at unbeatable prices, knowing that everything in our restaurant is home made. The dough for example, rests for 72h before being used, offering a light and delicious pizza. We want you to discover Italy through our wonderful and unique dishes. Things you cannot find anywhere else in Switzerland. The wine by the glass starts from Chf5,50.- up to 13.-., again we offer a wide selection, for our clients to have the choice regarding their desires and budget. Regarding the noise, we are putting in place a professional soundproof system, which will reduce the echo and will give a warmer atmosphere. We invite you to come back, to taste one of our specialties and to enjoy the Luigia at its fullest. Best regards, Michele Mancino, Restaurant’s manager
