Delicious

The hostel we stayed in recommended the place, and it was worth the 15min wait for a table. Delicious food, wonderful atmosphere, and the staff were lovely. Would recommend getting the family pizza between two, works out at great value. Highly recommend this place

Guys on a ski tour, heard rumours of big waiting times but by arriving early and at a time when Grindelwald was not so busy meant we seated moments after arrival. A relaxed, busy and informal atmosphere is just what a Pizza needs although these might be a Swiss interpretation on the Classic Neapolitan originals there is nothing wrong with... More

Good food, great service, good wine. Expensive like everything in Switzerland, but a great place to spend a lovely evening.

It would be great to recommend this cosy place but it seems impossible to get a table without queuing for a prolonged wait. We went three times in a week and each time were (very politely) told the expected wait. Each time we went elsewhere. This place does not accept any advance reservations.

何度かリピートしています。サラダもピザもデザートも美味しいです。特にお気に入りは"Chef's Special"というピザで、サワークリームとベーコンという、他では食べたことのない組み合わせです。それに加え、ここのピザ生地も、他では食べたことのないタイプです。ピザ生地に15%ほどのパイ生地を加えたような食感とでも言いましょうか、、、。雰囲気は山小屋スタイルで、至る所にオーナーの愛が感じられるような温かい雰囲気です。サービスは、忙しくなければ順調ですが、満員になるとやはり着席してからピザにありつくまで、30から40分くらい待つ可能性があります。このレストランの良さは、のんびりしたスイスの山小屋での食事スタイルを、グリンデルワルドのメインストリートで味わえるという事かと考えれば、気にならないかもしれません。 One of my favorite Pizzeria in my life. Salads, Pizzas, desserts all tastes very good so far as I am a repeater. My favorite pizza is "Chef's special" which has the combination of sour cream and bacon which I never had in any other pizzeria. The pizza daugh is also very special to me, if I describe it... More

this is an excellent place for a post skiing pizza! It is worth noting the opening times and getting in early (like 5-5:30pm) as it's quite small and very popular. Unfortunately they don't take bookings, but don't let it put you off! Very friendly service too, a must in Grindelwald.

Good pizza no doubt, but, my lord, an hour and half for two pizzas...really?? Best avoided if you have children, they will be eating the furniture before the pizza arrives.... Also, can you book or can't you book - very confusing... I phoned, then arrived, to be accused of having definitely phoned somewhere else and that you can't book -... More

Been to Grindelwald a number of times and finally got in at Onkel Tom's Hutte...the pizza was absolutely fantastic! The place is very small so be sure to arrive by 5:30 to get a table - It's definitely worth coming off the slopes a little early to experience this place!

It's kinda a family run restaurant so they cudnt cope with too many guests. We had hungry kids in our table and the food just wouldn't come . After a long wait the pizza came finally.. It was good but I think the wait sort of killed the appetite..
