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.

In this restaurant you can find the best hospitality, a wide array of international dishes that u wanna choose. And even though the prices are so high and the quality and the style of dishes are very awesome and interesting. I recommend to go this place u could find any chance.

Ok, we were just about the only customers due to it being late afternoon, but we found the service to be great, the pizzas were just perfect and the prices were very reasonable for Zermatt. A nice quiet location at the edge of the centre meant we could enjoy our food and drinks without crowds of people round about us.... More

We were a party of 11 so it took ages for everyone to get their pizzas, but they didn't bother to apologise or explain the reason. Everything was an effort and we didn't feel welcome here. I've eaten here before on a previous visit, but will think twice before returning to this restaurant. We chose it because it was conveniently... More

Perhaps I am being unduly harsh awarding this restaurant only 3 stars, as my wife and I had a pleasant evening and everybody else looked as though they were having a good time. For Zermatt, this is cheap and cheerful: couple of drinks each, pizza, risotto and a side salad; just a little over CHF80 (£60). Food up to standard... More
