“Good food at a reasonable cost, friendly top notch service”
Review of Made in Sud

Made in Sud
Ranked #2 of 436 Restaurants in Lucerne
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$10 - US$30
Description: Made in Sud was the restaurant on Obergrundstrasse 26 before we took it in August 2016. We took over the name, the locality and the Italian cuisine and made a lovely restaurant with mainly Italian menus. We also kept the delivery service and extended the take-away offer. Our business idea is based on five principles that we attach great importance to: - High quality of home cooked food - From healthy ingredients - Made with love - From socially acceptable production - From local suppliers

Switzerland restaurants have always been expensive. However, if there is ever one restaurant that serves good food at reasonable cost, Made in Sud is the one. Prices are probably 2/3 of what other similar restaurants would charge for similar items. We got the Octopus Carpaccio, Penne Arrabiata, and a pizza. All of the items were quite Italian-authetic and tasty. We also got a full bottle of good Babera for about 45CHF, roughly 20CHF cheaper than most normal restaurants in Lucerne.

To top it off, service is friendly, fun and excellent. The staff let us sample the wines with large pours before committing. During payment, I was also short on cash (being the last day of the trip) by a couple CHF. I offered to pay via credit card any difference but they just smiled and told me to forget about it--all with a big smile.

Overall, Made in Sud is a fantastic place to go. Be sure to reserve though, especially on weekends. I was turned away as a walk-in on a Sunday night and returned a couple days later with a reservation.

From the train station, it's roughly a 10-minute walk or a bus ride of 3 stops to Pilatusplatz.

Last minute decision to eat in Lucerne as we were staying in Weggis. With so many restaurants to choose from we decided against eating alongside the lake and opted for something 10 mins into town. We were not disappointed! Fantastic, friendly service - we were warned that without a reservation the only table free was booked for 1 hour later (definitely advisable to reserve in advance!). This did restrict our choices, however we enjoyed fantastic Italian food,everything freshly prepared and well presented. Great atmosphere, fabulous food, very impressed! Good value for this region too.

We were on our honeymoon and ordered the lasagne, a pizza and the Panna Cotta. The Lasagne was the best we’ve ever had. The pizza was the best we’ve ever had. The service was the best we’ve ever had. The restaurant surprised us by customising our dessert and congratulated us, making it such a special night. To top it off, when we received the bill, the restaurant told us the Panna Cotta was complimentary as a gift for our honeymoon. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone who visits Lucerne.
