It is located a little bit far from the city centre but you should try if you like real traditional Italian cuisine. The best pizza and pastas in the city with a good hospitality. I tried two different times and its quality was the same. Especially when I invited one of my Italian gourmet friends to La Stella. Finally, I... More

Not very inspired, but classic Italian fare, and all good. Pizzas excellent, pasta and all specials as well. Friendly service, you get what you expect.

Very nice garden that makes lunch during summer a special treat. Food is always tasty and their pizzas are excellent. Make sure to book for lunch if you want a place in the garden.

I have been visiting la Stella ever since it opened more than 25 years ago. It's quite an accomplishment to keep this kind of higher class Italian restaurant going especially as it is a bit more expensive. They have a good base menu and a seasonal menu. All dishes are good, well prepared and presented. The table is well dressed... More

Have been here a couple times and is always very well taken care of. Last night we had a pizza and a pasta. The pizza was (as always) over average but the pasta didn't taste anything. We spoke to the owner who was as nice as ever, let us pick a new pasta course without any hesitation or sour remarks.... More

We went there yesterday with a group of friends and all of us (11 people) liked the food a lot. There's variety of dishes you can order - from fantastic pizzas on a thin crust to pastas, fish and meat. Wine selection is also good. Prices are a little high, but again - it's Switzerland. Alltogether - good place with... More

This is a good restaurant with authentic italian food. The kids pizza is a great idea as they can't eat a standard size one. The place is often busy so it is best to book. The decor is very traditional and in the summer the shaded terrace is very special to dine out on. The pizza quality is very good... More

One of my favorite Italian places in the Lausanne region, the service is great and the risotto Venere is highly recommended!

My favourite local, within 15 minutes walk of home. Food is usually very good and tastes even better when washed down with some good Italian wine of which there is a good choice. Sometimes it takes a while to be served and get the food, as the place is usually quite full, but with good company, who cares. We usually... More
