Pizzas you'll want to try out more than once

The pizzas at Cucina are worth coming back for - the sort of good quality pizza you can only expect from an Italian restaurant. Prices are affordable at around 20-30 CHF per pizza depending on the ingredients. The quality is much better than the take-out pizza you can buy elsewhere for maybe a few... read more

Best pizze in Zürich? Probably yes, but avoid the pizza diavola, it has no salami or other meat on it and isn't hot at all. It's full of onions instead. Waiters are nice, though. Nice outdoor tables available as well.

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. A lot of tables so if you want some alone time make sure to come either early or late...... More

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

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
