Excellent restaurant with Italian cuisine only steps away from our hotel overlooking River. Delicious meals, in generous serves and reasonably priced for Switzerland. Terrific attentive friendly professional service from our waiter Tiego. Highly recommended.

Modomio is a cute Italian restaurant right on the river! Unfortunately our serve was very rude and the service was extremely slow. We waited 45 minutes to receive our check after our plates had been cleared. I'm giving them 2 stars because the food was decent and the location was beautiful. There are plenty of other restaurants along the river... More

The staff were busy with a large group the night we were there for dinner so they were not as attentive for our table of two. Food was good and the prices were reasonable for Lucerne

Best Italian food in Lucerne, but the service was terribly slow and inefficient. Had to remind the servers (who were perfectly friendly and spoke good English) to get our drinks a few times. We are pretty patient people, so the service didn't bother us too much, but I could see less patient people finding this irritating. It was worth it... More

We landed here one evening for dinner and everything about the experience was simply average. This is by no means the best italian food in Luzern and the service was below average. My wife and I walked away from the experience a bit disappointed.

I am a local in Luzern. I live and work here. I came to this restaurant with my employer for an event and enjoyed it. However, when I came back with my partner (I am a native English speaker and he local Swiss) we were treated completely differently. Right from the start we were treated differently. We just chalked it... More

We stopped at this place because it was near the Tourist Hotel where we were staying plus it was raining and we didn't want to walk far. We were pleasantly surprised with the menu choices and both my husband and I got pasta plus a glass of wine - all for about 50 euros which is decent in Switzerland. The... More

Wonderful restaurant next door to our hotel. Best pizza that we had in Switzerland. It was lovely atmosphere, very relaxing. Once we were sitting we were brought a glass of sparking wine which was a very nice touch. I wish we would have gone at the beginning of our trip instead of the end because we definitely would have gone... More

Our party of seven stumbled upon this rather nondescript place located right next to our hotel and we were pleasantly surprised. I'm not much of a pizza lover, at least not the American fast food variety, but the stuff served here was outstanding. As was the lasagna and desserts. And our waitress, Karina from Venezuela, was courteous and helpful. Well... More

We stayed right nearby and felt like Italian, so we gave Modomio a shot. We were very pleased! The host (or manager) is Italian, and he came to our table several times (and to most other tables) and made us feel very welcome, joking (in English) with our two daughters. He even brought out complimentary glasses of Prosecco! The pizza... More
