We wanted to eat some good pasta in central Lausanne and so selected Bravissimo based on TP reviews.

All in all we (a group of friends) were very pleased with the food and the service (which we all know can be very challenging to find in Geneva / Lausanne area).

We had spaghetti vongole, carbonara and one of the specialties - tortelloni stuffed with lobster and crab meat. All of them delicious! The portions were very big and came with a complimentary bruschetta and a salad. Dessert menu features tiramisu and variety of ice cream.

The service was very nice and friendly, although they do not speak English so knowing a few words of French may be helpful. We also recommend to book a table - the place was packed the whole evening.

Myself and a business colleague found Bravissimo by accident while killing some time in Lausanne; it's slightly away from the main shopping area and was a welcome find as the alternatives were either fast food or bar/snack joints or closed (it was just around 7pm and most other places opened around 8). The restaurant appeared family-run and the staff gave us a warm welcome. Our host only spoke French and was most acommodating of my 40-years-ago, school-learnt French vocabulary.

My vegetarian colleague had a plain pizza and I ordered a risotto with ham - both arrived within an 'appropriate' time (leading me to believe that both were cooked fresh), but not before we'd been served some complimentary bruschetta and then a very good salad and dressing.

The risotto was perfectly cooked and my colleague approved of the pizza. The accompanying 'pot' of Pinot Noir house wine was both very nice and reasonably priced.

Decent food and drink at a decent price, with friendly staff - that ticks all the boxes after three hours of pounding pavement!

We regularly go there to have lunch, with friends and colleagues - the food is really nice (I've tried so far pastas and filets de perche with fries), the plates are always served in big quantity, you have plenty of choices for an Italian restaurant, and the price remains fairly reasonable for Switzerland. But most of all, the restaurant's team is extremely nice, smiling, polite, and attentive to your needs or desires. We often get the coffees for free and can be served very quickly if we need to. It's always a pleasure to go to Bravissimo...

We went here after failed attempts at other restaurants and was really hungry! We ordered a carbonara and parma pizza for two people and we're surprised how big the portions were! One of the best carbonara I've ever eaten and the parma ham was so good, though we had to pack most of it for the breakfast after. The service staff couldn't speak much English but that didn't stop us for having a great time as they were very attentive and tried to explain to us that those meals we chose came with bruchetta and salads! The meals were lovely!

The place is simple, typical Italian atmosphere with very good Italian food. Perfect for dinning alone or in a group. Kids are more than comfortable and the staff is very firendly and corteous.
