We decided to look around for a restaurant for dinner when we were in Montreux and cam across this one. The welcome was very friendly and the food and service were very good. By Swiss standards, the bill wasn't excessive; however restaurant costs in Switzerland are very expensive (we had one starter, a main course and a coffee each, and no other drinks - CHF73 (GBP55)).

Dolce Ristorante Bar Pizzeria

Reviewed By Virginia Y

We have been coming here every summer the last 6 years for our croissant and coffee. This unassuming place is where many locals have their morning coffee and meeting friends. In Recent years it became a restaurant. The risotto with courgette and shrimp was delicious as was the lasagne. Escape the crowds and relax at Dolce! It’s not so touristy and serves good food.

Great setting, tables next to the lake. Pizza was really well made and service was ok as our waitress was a little stress and tired as she have worked all day. Other than that, it was a good pizza meal. Enjoy

Great terrace, quiet and calm from the busy main road. Authentic pizzas by Italian chef who is a master, quite a show flipping pizzas. Try the buffala & limoncello is home-made! Reasonable price, without frills for a quick fix. Small place to not feel touristic. Closed on Mondays.

Staying at the Hotel Splendid a few doors away, this seemed the perfect choice given the reviews on TAWe visited at 19.00 on a Friday evening without a reservation. Just got one of the last two tables for two, with the other filling moments later.Despite a full restaurant, ample serving staff kept on top of orders and service was pleasant if not a little functional.By UK Italian standards, this place was expensive (then everywhere is in Switzerland). We enjoyed a really nice shared Bruschetta to start at CHF14.00. Expensive when you consider that’s about GBP11. However it was a massive portion of four pieces, with two slices each being more than an adequate starter. For mains we ordered a Pizza Jardinier at CHF24.50 and Calazone at CHF25.00. £20 each for a pizza by UK standards! But, this was Swiss pricing not the restaurant over charging.Top quality for both choices with the Calazone being on the large sizeWith two beers the bill came to CHF78.50.The price aside, good food and service in a pleasing environment. Would visit again if we returned to Montreux.

Travelling through Europe with a friend with a food and wine focus. This was the third Italian restaurant we have tried in three nights. Without any exaggeration, it has been the best experience. Great food, great venue location, and great service. Sandro advised us on a very good wine which, over the last week since being in Europe, had to be the best red wine so far. Pauline from France had a beautiful personality and smile, and was so helpful. She must have heard in conversation that we were celebrating my birthday today and she brought out a little cake with a single candle – so thoughtful. Finished the night with a complimentary grappa from Sandro – simply extraordinary. It was more than an a dinner, it was an experience

As a family, we decided to go for a pizza outing, when this restaurant popped up on our TripAdvisor radar.Luckily enough, they had space and could fit us in at a nice table within the restaurant.The food was tasty, the service was fine, the ambiance of the restaurant was to our liking (seemed like recently opened/renovated). So honestly, it was all good. Just not anything spectacular, you know?Being a bit picky, the only thing that bothered us is that one of our waitresses didn't speak English or German, which in such a touristic location was a bit strange.Nevertheless, for all those in the mood for pizza in the Montreaux area, go for it :)

Walked down from hotel and got a seat right away even though it was very crowded. Ordered Vitello Tonnato, but they were out, so tried the Vitello Tartare which was delicious. I then had the spaghetti tricolore with addition of pancetta and this was perfectly prepared. Nice wine list - friendly and attentive service

La Corsa Al Cilento

Reviewed By dayhikers

An other restaurant where we ate twice! The first time we ordered steak frite (deemed the best steak, anywhere, in a long time), and sole - perfectly cooked and flavorful. Both came with the very best fries - crisp, not greasy. Second time we went Italian, with a ravioli special and penne with zucchini and eggplant. Both came with a rose (pink) sauce, not too rich. Homemade tiramisu both times! First evening a customer at the next table offered to help with English translation - introduced himself as a neighborhood volunteer firefighter. The firehouse was around the corner on our walk back to our hotel. Locals come in for beer and wine, and to watch sports on TV. Very good service.
