We enjoyed very good food and excellent service on a Sunday evening at La Gondola. We both had pastas with shrimp and a delicious ice cream dessert. It has an entrance that is a little obscure, inside a small covered area and next to a medieval wall. Climb one flight of stairs, and the decor is very pretty and servers... More

We picked La Gondola as it is away from the large crowds in the restaurants around the Lake and we ate lunch outside in the beautiful Weinmarkt square. We both had pasta, which was delicious. The service was pleasant and fast. Truly one of the best meals we had in Switzerland along with the best service.

The entrance to this little Italian gem is difficult to spot from Weinmarkt street at night. Tucked away on the first floor (second floor if you are an American), we decided to take the stairs and check it out. We found a lovely dining room with white linens, Italian ambiance and a view of the street below. I had the... More

The Restaurant is in the heart of the old town. Hidden on the first floor on Weinmarkt. I love the fresh fish (catch of the day) and specially the vegetable is cooked in a perfect mediteranian way. At lunch there is eal value for money with the great daily menues. Take a bit of time because it is freshly cooked.... More

We were wandering around in the rain, looking for a decent place to eat and had been turned away from one place because it was 2pm and its kitchen had closed, when we found this place. We were rewarded with an excellent meal in pleasant surroundings with a nice view from the dining room. The food was good (vegetable risotto,... More

My family and I were out wandering around looking for a place to eat with good prices when we stumbled upon this place. We sat down and the servers were very attentive. My wife and I ordered two green salads that were a good value because it was a sizeable portion. We then ordered 2 pizza's a Hawaiian and spicy... More

Food was excellent. We had homemade pasta with generous amounts of sea-food (very difficult to find in landlocked Switzerland). Great value for money. The tirami su served in a goldola shaped dish was delicious.

A local recommended this restaurant to us. My husband had seafood pasta and I had bacon&egg pasta. They were both very good and the portion was big. The restaurant was quite busy when we got there. So the service was a bit slow. While we were standing at the door, no waiters came to welcome us nor seated us. Despite... More
