Dinner with my husband down town Zurich

We had a very casual and standard Italian night out: Caprese with buffalo mozzarella Pizza rucola Tiramisu Products taste great (for Swiss standards) But the place is just what you want for an evening out: staff is attentive, friendly and fast.

Since I visited Zürich for the first time in 2011, I have been coming to this place on a regular basis. The pizzas are delicious and the service fast and attentive. Also the prices are very reasonable. Inside, the place is a little bit crowded when fully booked which is almost always the case on a Friday or Saturday evening,... More

For a pizza my wife and I always choose this place. Their pizzas from the wood stove oven are simply the best in town. The garden fresh mixed salad is a good starter. The reasonably priced Amarone (one can just order a glass of it) is a good choice. Just the bread used to be much better. Waiting staff is... More

I have been here 2x. First time had a pasta and second had a pizza. Prices are overall ok. As it pertains to Zurich's standards. I Strongly recommend the pizza's the oven seems to be a wood one which adds more flavor. I had a pizza called Lucy it was great! During the warmer months reservation is strongly suggested as...

We've been here several times and the Pizza here is probably the best you can get in all of Zurich, truly outstanding. The service is friendly and well as mentioned the food is outstanding :-) Highly recommended!!

Best to make a reservation as this is a very popular restaurant. The menu is well thought out, and yes it is Italian, but it is so authentic! I had gnocchi with Gorgonzola cheese sauce...so beautiful! The wine list is extensive, and I must add that much like most places in Switzerland that we ate, wine by the glass is... More

We came with a party of 5 and found a nice restaurant in the heart of "Kreis 5" in Zurich. Service was very friendly. Despite the restaurant was only half full (if at all) it took quite a while until we received our food. Also it was not possible to make a half portion of pasta for our daughter. Sizes... More

My friends and I happened upon Cucina’s just by chance, and it was a very pleasant surprise. Cucina’s is a bit off the beaten path, and when the restaurant that we were searching for was closed that Sunday afternoon, we were excited to happen upon Cucina’s Italian eatery, which was open and very welcoming! We passed up the inviting outdoor... More

We were there as a group of friends with children. The environment was lovely. The service was quick and attentive. Most importantly the food taste awesome, and the prices were normal for Swiss standards. I strongly suggest it, but don't forget to make a reservation since it seemed pretty busy.

They do make a very good wood oven pizza, if it is the best of Zurich can be debated ;) I also like Don Leone (great atmosphere) or even Taverne. It is rather busy and especially if you like to sit outside in the summer reservations are recommended. Service was very kind and attentive, special requests like additional toppings are... More
