Another of our regular restaurants when in Zermatt

Family run restaurant. Best to book but if you arrive by 7 pm not a problem. Pizza chef prepares and cooks in a visible part of the restaurant. They have no problem with you sharing meals, as the pizzas and pastas are more than enough for one person so we tend to have a salad and a pizza/pasta... read more

This is no 5 star restaurant but it is a great pizzeria so it gets 5 stars in my book. I'm an Italian from NYC so I've been around a pizza or two and I can tell you the pizza here is outstanding and so was the calzone I had. Looking for a great, casual spot in Zermatt, you found... More

Little pleasant premises, spartan, are not understood if it proposes French or Italian kitchen. Surly attendants. In the only - and last - occasion when I ate there, I'm assaulted by the maid, evidently in burnt out, because I asked her a vegan food (a simple salad because they haven't any food for vegan people or lactose intolerant). She assure... More

I used to love this place & have been many times over the last five years. It was friendly enough & the pizza was always decent. Not sure if they changed Chef but I have visited twice over the last year and the quality has really gone downhill. Most recently, I was in a group of six, service was patchy... More

We started with the Pomodoro and Mozzarella (Mozzarella Caprese), and the minestrone soup - both excellent. The pizza was delicious and the pastas were amazing. The Spaghetti Carbonara was a true carbonara - no cream - was was seasoned perfectly - I didn't need cheese or pepper, etc. The mushroom risotto was also very tasty and very fresh! This place...

Centrally located pizzeria/restaurant in Zermatt. Visited on a Thursday night in February and was pretty full all night long. Good selection of pizza, pasta and salads. All fresh and tasty. Reasonably priced too.
