I go there like once a week and I've never been disappointed. Very delicious, fast (if you want), a bit pricey but worth it :-)

They were very rude, arrogant staff. They made us wait so long standing on the queue (they dont serve on the tables)They didnt have what we wanted, we order somethingelse and they gave us the wrong stuff, with no apologize. They didnt correct their mistakes. They treated us as terrorists. Definitely not going back!

Stopped for lunch on a Monday when many other restaurants were closed. Two couples. Two medium focaccia sandwiches, one large salad, and one soup = 60 SwissF...a bit expensive, but the food is so good, it's worth it. For the sandwiches, you stand in front of a counter and order from a very appetizing selection of ingredients. I'd like to... More

Fantastic quality at a very decent price for Switzerland. A sandwich which was enough for dinner and a big beer 20 CHF.

The Foccaceria is located in the heart of the city, conveniently situated between the university and the central bus station. The good points: The place nice for small groups or couples, situated on two floors with two terrasses (one on the second floor and one at the entrance). Ambiance and decor are very simple, but cosy. The way it works... More

Foccacias are very tasty, you can order a medium (around 10Fr) on its own or quite often I order a small one with a small soup as well. The olive pesto or nut pesto are both delicious. The place can get very busy around lunchtime so get here early or you can always order to take out.

Focacceria is located right at the heart of St.Gallen, very close to Marktplatz, in a tiny and quiet corner. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, the waiters are nice and helpful. Regarding the food... it's amazing. Very good italian focaccia and high quality ingredients mixed with creativity make this place a "must" not only for a quick snack, but also... More

The focaccia prices are maybe 1 or 2 Frannks too expensive, yet they taste extreeemely good, so it's hard to stop grabing a focaccia sandwich over there! The antipasti look nice also, still they are too expensive in my opinion.. At least for students and others who cant pay 25-30.- for lunch... Still, thanks flor existing and cooking us these... More
