Good Italian pasta

Nice, more formal ambience, very centrally located opposite of Kaufleuten, close to Paradeplatz. Went there for dinner with friends, but La Piazetta can also be recommended for a business lunch. The homemade shrimp ravioli were delicious and all dishes were very nicely presented. It is not exactly... read more

If you go to this restaurant you must try the pasta. Its fresh and delicious. The burrata with prosciutto crudo is awesome and you dont feel like pasta try the paillard. They have a good wine card and the atmosphere is great. Its in the heart of Zurich, so if you want to go for a drink somewhere afterwards its... More

We had a dinner at La Piazzetta with a group of 6 persons. Food was good, and the wine list was ok. The service was, however, not on the level to be expected in a restaurant on this price level. Restaurant was almost empty, but we had to wait forever on the main course. I think they forgot our orders...... More

Dining at Piazetta is a MUST. Excellent Food - especially Branzino al Forno or the Wiener Schnitzel known as Elephant Ear. For the dessert I enjoyed on of the best Crème Brûlée I ever had. Just go and enjoy - Bon Appétit

I was slightly disappointed with this restaurant. On arriving the staff were very friendly which continued all night. The style of the restaurant is typically Italian in a relaxed way. We were in a group of eight, and we're never rushed. The menu is in Italian and the waitress helped where I couldn't translate. I had the tuna carpaccio for... More

During our short visit to Zurich our friends took us to La Piazzetta for dinner one evening. One thing I can't get used to in Switzerland is the price of food, it's insanely expensive. This place was no exception, $30 spaghetti, pretty crazy. Everything was good, service, atmosphere, drinks. Everyone in our party enjoyed the meal, so it was worth... More

Had supper here this evening with two work colleagues which was really pleasant. Good quality food, wine and a relaxed atmosphere. White linen tablecloths and not too persuasive on the vino - waitress left us to our own devices and tempo to order and take our time to catch up with each other.... Overall, lovely evening and reasonably priced: main... More

Have past this restaurant not far from the Banhoff Strasse several times and a friend living in Zurich suggested we meet there. The service was surprisingly good if a little pushy on the second bottle of expensive Italian wine. Starters of pasta with white truffle was good but needed more truffle oil in order to really bring out the alba... More

Walked past this place loads of time and finally stopped here for dinner one evening with partner and family friend. Really good seafood pasta. Not cheap but good.
