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

Corroborate the story of other reviewers. Pizzas looked OK but I was left sitting there for fifteen minutes whilst actively trying to flag a waiter with both hands by the end. It was comical. These guys would make really crappy lifeguards. If I were going to be pedantic, which I feel I am being made to be given the circumstances,... More

My family and I (we were 10 adults) had dinner at Ristorante Cucina during our trip to Zurich this summer. We had a great time, enjoyed good food, every dish had its own signature and the atmosphere was great. But best of all,we experienced excellent service,unfortunately I forgot the names of the wonderful people that served our food but I... More

We tried to ask for a table me with my pregnat wife and an extremely rude waiter totally ignored us. I had to ask three times and then finally he said extremely rudely "there is just no table and turned away" then I asked again can we wait? And his answer sure you can wait there is just no table....

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
