Tasty italian restaurant in the cozy and historical village Sempach. Perfect after a walk by the lake. We eat lunch after a training, a delicious soup and an amazing amount of antipasti where included. Only the deer was partly chewy, therefore only 4*.

This is a very interesting restaurant and has an excellent wine list, There is also a small delicatessen. The atmosphere is fairly standard - more for locals than for tourists.

Overpriced, like everything else in Switzerland. There are a couple of things you can do to ruin pizza and they managed to do most of them. Also, our cold antipasti and hot pizza came at the same time, what were we supposed to eat first?...More

The coffee was good, but overpriced and the staff was a bit cold. Maybe it's the way it works in Suisse, possible. But I'd have to get used to it. A friendly smile while being served does make a difference. Good ambiance and great scenery....More
