Remarkably Good Pizza In.....................................Montreux. Serious.

Joe H. | Sep 20, 2004 07:44 AM

The last place I would have expected to find a pie on par with Brandi in Naples or superior to Il Pizzaiola in Florence or any in Milan, Bologna or a half dozen other Italian cities.

Pizzaria Siesta (an unlikely name) has a wood burning oven and a truly dedicated young owner/chef who makes everything in house from scratch (even his own label wine from Tuscany-and it's cheap and good) really well. His crust was superb, frankly as good as I've had in Europe.

One block off of the walk which parallels Lake Geneva near the center of town this is well worth seeking out if anyone travels to Montreux.

On another note, a dinner of fondue and raclette at the well publicized (in tour books) Museum and adjacent La Cave ...... (forgot the name) were very disappointing.
