Amazing pastas, pizzas, veal Milanese and salads. Good pour on drinks and incredibly friendly staff. The bucatini amatriciana was one of the most tasty dishes I've ever had. We were in Montreux for 2 days and ate here both nights! Will miss it!

We came here at the recommendation of our driver and he was spot on. This cozy little spot is so authentic and delicious, you'd swear you're in the heart of Italy, not Switzerland. The service was warm, inviting and kind, but the food was out of this world. Highly recommend the minestrone soup and Veal Milanese. You'll leave full, happy... More

We went there for a lunch with clients. First thing we noticed was that the service was not fantastic. It was like we weren't welcome, though they weren't rude with us. The food tasted good. I chose the season specials with asparagus... though it seems that most of the asparagus were from tin, only 3 heads from fresh vegetables. It's... More

Dropped by this restaurant on the way back to the hotel one evening and had a really great Italian meal. Very helpful and friendly staff. Lovely salad to start, fantastic salmon and courgette tagliatelle and a couple of glasses of red. Lovely.

Dined here on a saturday night. we arrived without a booking, and were immediately shown to table. from the outset, the service was outstanding - quick, incredibly friendly and sincere. Food was fine - veal scallopini and lasagne - both delicious. The wine was fairly priced and the atmosphere busy, but relaxed. Incredibly friendly place - would return in a... More

Three of us each enjoyed something different at this casual restaurant and enjoyed it. I had pasta with meatballs, one of us had pizza, and another had the cannelloni and all were good.

This is one of my favorite simple restaurants in Montreux, if you fancy some traditional Italian dishes, this is the place to go, nothing fancy, however cozy and you can count on warm, Italian style service! They have about everything Italian, pizza is excellent too! Definitely a must. Enjoy!

Staying at the Suisse Majestic Grand, this restaurant is right down the street. Nice outdoor seating for a warm and clear July evening. Seated right away and had good service from a very nice server who didn't speak much English but she tried and had a nice smile. I had the perch with lime which came with a green salad... More

Everything on the menu is cooked with care and with fresh products, I've never been disappointed. I usually eat pasta there because it's so good...
