Quaint, charming, tiny place with local clients at the bar. Started with Caprese salad. Excellent buffalata mazzorella; light on tomatoes but made up for it with arugula and olives. Lemon veal scallopes were very good as was the risotto and carrots severed with it. We will be back, but then I knew I had made a good choice when our... More

Our hotel recommended us to go to da Guiseppe which was a great tipp!! When we sat down we got prosecco and bruscette as a welcome offer, which is quite rare in Switzerland. Reading the menu is a highlight!! We laughed tears because of bunga bunga menu, giovannis viagra ravioli and the crazy starters, hilarious! My family and me decided... More

Well, theoretically Italy is only about 3 miles away but the starters, entrees and deserts are just amazing. Don't exect to get a table during Winter season unless you reserved 3 months ahead of time. Simply said, excellent food, small place and once you are done eating a complete bottle of Grappa is waiting for you to help digest -... More

The food is wonderful and the atmosphere is great! It is a small place and it is crowded on most evenings. So if you don't like talking to your neighbors at the table next to you it is better you go somewhere else.

Despite having stayed almost opposite da Giuseppe's every visit to Zermatt over the last 15 years, we always walked past it without a second thought. Until a few years ago, when we read some of the rave reviews on TripAdvisor. For several years subsequently we tried to get reservations during the week, but it was always fully booked. So this...

We tried to contact this place before arriving in Zermatt but their website was horrible and no one ever answered the phone when we called. We went by in person to check availability and they had none at all for a 6-night stay. I guess it must be REALLY good! We were very disappointed that they could not accommodate us... More

If you are looking for à really genuine, cosy, friendly Italian restaurant with the very best Italian cuisine; then you should absolutely visit Guiseppes! It is a must to reserve a table although. Not that many seats and lots of returning guests.

We had a wonderful dinner at Chalet da Giuseppe! Staff and owner are welcoming, professional and the service is terrific. We arrived close to 9, but there was little seating available. Giuseppe welcomed us anyway, served us glasses of Prosecco at the bar until a table was ready and bruschetta. Incredibly gracious! If you would like a true dining experience,... More

Great welcome of an aperitif and appetiser when you sit and a free grappa at the end. The owner wonders around and bursts into song so be prepared! We found the simple Italian food excellent. Very filling and good value. The next table had obviously eaten there before and had a great Degustation that wasn't on the menu. Wish we... More

A special evening in a cozy little restaurant. A warm greeting by the host and complimentary pro secco and bruschetta to start the evening. The food was wonderful, the service impeccable. Guiseppe checked on us frequently and we enjoyed his musings. After a delicious dessert of thinly sliced fresh pineapple with lemon ice a complimentary glass of grappa arrived !... More
