Great location, with an outdoor seating area right on the lake.Menu is classic itallian, with plenty of choice of Pizza & pasta dishes. Pricing is fair for the area. Food was good, when it arrived, but service was painfully slow. it took over an hour for Pizza and Pasta main courses to arrive, and there was a further long wait... More

On our first day to Lucerne, we sat on the riverside patio of La Terrazza. What a breathtaking peaceful place to have a meal! The clean clear water, the elegant swans swimming by, the exquisite view of the mountains and architecture of the buildings! And a fantastic delicious meal to boot!! Our waitress was sweet and kind, but she never... More

Cozy place, very italian atmosphere. Large and confortable restaurant conveniently located. I tried the Margaritisima, Diabola, and Prosciutto e Funghi - all excellent. My wife had the Pesto Gnocchis and they were fantastic as well. My only negative review is that my brother had been there before and could not stop talking about the ball of cheese they served on...

After touring the old town and walking across the two covered bridges over the Reuss River we stopped here for lunch. Very comfortable on the terrace overlooking the river and the bridges. Beautiful salads, great thin crust pizza, and excellent mushroom ravioli. Limited, but adequate wine list. The inside was fresh and had lots of arches giving a basement feel... More

Both waiters were sitting on a table and very busy speaking to each other, instead of serving the Clients. It is not true Italian as the cook was from eastern countries.

Typical Italian restaurant in Switzerland, the basics are featured, but the preparation and taste are not outstanding. Service is fine but not friendly. Wine selection is also quite average, in terms of choice and quality... nothing special...
