I chose this restaurant for a surprise birthday dinner for my boyfriend with 15 people and was positively impressed by Stella's (the owner) helpfulness with the organisation. Being a small restaurant it can't have been an easy task to accomodate a fairly large group, but it couldn't have turned out better. All in all a successful evening : delicious Italian food, friendly staff, charming atmosphere, complimentary birthday decorations and a voucher for drinks for the birthday boy. Thank you again!

We were warmly welcomed by the owner who talked us through the menu of the day as well as the main menu. We opted for the 3 course menu of the day - the pasta in a lemon sauce was delicious, the pasta was home made and the sauce was a lovely blend of subtle flavours.

We had an excellent meal at il Ghiotto. We were warmly welcomed at the restaurant which is positioned greatly, very close to the imposing Cathedral of Lausanne.
One of our children has allergies and they were very accomodating to make sure she got a great meal as well. We had the pasta with truffle saus, which was amazing. Also the recommendation for the wine, a Antica from Puglia was very good, as it went very well with the food. It was clear that the people at the restaurant really loved their job and serving their customers in the best possible way.

The food is absolutely delicious, the staff very friendly and the atmosphere very cool - especially on a hot summer evening. What better way to end a day than by dining in an old narrow alleyway next to a cathedral? That's right, none =)

Excellent small restaurant in the old town. The food is original with fresh home made pasta very well presented. Dessert are fresh home made and delicious.
The terrace is lovely specially in spring and summer.
The owner serve you directly. She is very warm, interested in your satisfaction beyond formalities. You feel at home with her.
Daily menus are very good.
I go many times in the year since I discovered the place sometime ago.
Highly recommended.
