I found this place while wandering near the cathedral and am so happy I did. My boyfriend and I went back for dinner and enjoyed the best plates of pasta both of us have ever eaten. Everything is homemade, and the flavors are unbelievable. They have daily "prix fixe" specials that come with salad, a main dish, and a dessert... More

Have decided last night to have dinner out and chose this place from TripAdvisor. Must admit we have chosen it based on ratings and the owners name. Romanian!!! We were looking forward to seeing what Romanians can do and be proud! Couldn't have been prouder! The food is amazing! Best I had in a long time in Lausanne. Service was... More

We really enjoyed our trip to il Ghiotto and the amazing fagottini pasta with truffle sauce! It is a little difficult to find but ended up being well worth the trip (it's on a side road next to the cathedral). I would definitely recommend if you are looking for Italian food.

I liked the food and the friendly service. Prices are ok for Lausanne. Good wines. Service can be slow but it is not a problem when you enjoy the place.

Booked on line after reading reviews an hour before and made way up to restaurant which is by the Cathedral. Excellent friendly service in a busy little restaurant and whilst you wait for a little bit in between you don't mind as the food is well worth it. Owner explained all the different options and opted for a special with... More

If you like good food with friendly and sunny personnel, visit the place. The food is really good and the prices are lower. Place is visited by locals usually, which might be a good sign of quality. "When travelling do as locals do". :)

Great little place right next to the cathedral. Homemade pasta, great service, and well priced. I can't believe I'd never heard of his place before.

My husband and I went there for date night this past Friday based on reviews I read on Trip Advisor. We also needed to fuel up for a big bike ride we were doing on Sunday, so pasta was the logical choice. Our pasta was good and plentiful. The service was nice. The two women who worked there were both... More
