LUIGIA: an escape in the heart of Italy

Geneva, Nyon, Lausanne, Fribourg, Dubaï, Sion, Zurich: Luigia, is more than a restaurant, above all it is a love story.

Founded in 2010, the restaurants LUIGIA have a solid reputation. Accordingly to the italian guide Gambero Rosso, their pizzas are in the top 10 best in the world (outside Italy). An innovative spirit, keeping in mind the real values, caring for the environment and respecting the products, whatever the desires and budget are, an amicable and family-friendly atmosphere awaits customers.

A passion above all

The old saying “Unity is Strength” proves its rightness by uniting Luigi Guarnaccia and Enrico Coppola, the two founders of Luigia. They are both visionaries, passionate about their metier and they simply wish to share their passion for the Italian cuisine with a large public. Madly in love with this beautiful country, their mission today is to criss-cross Italy in search of the best products, created by small and unique producers and to make them available for the Luigia customers. It is also the creation of outstanding pizzas, which makes the reputation of Luigia.

The particularly smooth and light dough is the result of an in-depth study. It rests for 72 hours before being baked and only the freshest products are added to create unique Pizza compositions that cannot be found anywhere else and therefore Luigia is outstanding in Switzerland.
Luigia goes beyond the borders today, so that Italy is put in the spotlight through its gastronomy, as well as its “savoir-vivre”.

A tribute to LUIGIA, the grandmother of us all


More than a restaurant, Luigia is first and foremost, a tribute to life and the family traditions. Our society is anchored by lasting values and it is essential for us humans to reconnect with the values inspired by our grandmothers. To enjoy the moment with a good meal, is thus the whole philosophy of Luigia!

A simple and authentic cuisine, this is all that one needs to get pleasant feelings!

Simplicity equals success

Fresh products, high quality through an Italian-style know-how, a faithful and friendly team, give this unique place all the credibility for its success. It is three times a week that Italian producers travel from far to deliver their products directly to the restaurants, so that the Chefs can immediately create fresh and authentic dishes. A contemporary décor is combined with a typically Italian atmosphere where life is enjoyable, Luigia is the ideal place to share timeless moments. A Business lunch, a romantic dinner, a family meal to celebrate a special event, or our take-away service for customers to savour the excellent dishes at home, Luigia knows how to welcome and to make customers feel at home.
