Ristorante Amici

A family from Calabria serves specialities from their home region in their ‘pocket restaurant’ in Lausanne, to use the term of the GaultMillau guide. This gourmet guide has awarded 13 points to the Ristorante Amici and its delicious cuisine.
Long known by local regulars as the Café des Amis, this friendly restaurant has for some years now been renamed the Ristorante Amici. The warm welcome awaiting you is just the same, but the traditional brasserie food of the old days has been replaced by top-class Italian cuisine.

After a career in the best Italian restaurants in Lausanne (Accademia, Saint-Paul), owner Francesco Limardo has now opened his own family restaurant. The dining room seating forty is always full and table reservations are strongly recommended. The menu changes approximately every two months, but there are always carpaccios of beef or fish, fresh pasta and generous desserts. Like in Calabria, citrus fruit is often in evidence, to refresh salty dishes and sharpen the sweetness at the end of the meal.
