And that caveat is pretty weak, as we've not been to the Italian part in more than a decade. So why would you go to an Italian place with only 25 items (excluding dessert) on the menu, that doesn't serve pizza? Because you're tired of eating lousy, cheap food, and indifferently prepared, tasteless, expensive food. If you don't think Fortune 500 Italian food is an abomination, skip this place. If, on the other hand, you delight in the subtleties of real Italian prepared really well, you might want to give this place a try. The scallops (with black rice and lemon sauce) were the sweetest I've ever eaten anywhere, and the black pasta with scallops was sumptuous. The panna cotta with berry sauce was way above average, as was the unusually spicy and flavorful coffee.

We waited too long for service (30min), food was bland and without good surprise, upstairs part didn’t feel nice and we couldn’t enjoy “the fork” discount despite the advertising (the exact conditions should have been explained to us before ordering). On the upside we had a very nice and professional waiter.

this restaurant was recommended to me because we have it as a recommendation to go for business lunch / dinner - so i went there for a private dinner.
and, l’antica trattorio deserves to be on that list! delicious food, great and attentive service, nice ambiente.
i had the picata milanese, perfect and with a great portion of meat (veal). my company had the pasta with truffles, and she liked it much as well.
without i expected it, the price was super reasonable - great value for money!
i come again!

Don’t let the discrete location cheat you. This place serves the most incredible italian food in Switzerland. Low key and casual atmosphere, but stunning food. Even their house wine beats the most. Go there!

Invited to a group dinner in Lausanne, was impressed by the service and the food. Wine list was not mega extensive, but a few little gems in the list. The only drawback was the acoustics, a small table of females arrived, and literally we couldn't hear ourselves over the racket! Would go again as the food was very good....
