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.

The annoyingly pushy waiter ruined the experience. This is the second time that it has happened so now that was the last time I go there.

I have been there now 4 times and it was always very good. The food is consistently very good, the staff very friendly, the atmosphere and decor very nice and the location is good. It is, as most good restaurants in Zurich are, on the pricey side. Dinner for two with appetizers, a desert and a coffee will run you... More

La Piazzetta offers everything you expect of an Italian restaurant. The food is excellent and so is the wine list. There is a small bar at the entrance to have some drinks to start with, or just wait until all guests have arrived, if you prefer that to already go to the table. The open architecture with the different levels... More

The food was great ( I recommend the carbonara!! ) The service was good - with his skills in upselling us to more expensive starters apertifs etc working a treat. Whilst overpriced in my book, for zuirch it was the best value. This place seemed to have a... More

I have been to this place for lunch a few times (mostly because it has outdoor seating in the summer) and once for dinner. Hoping that it would improve on repeat visit, my expectations did not come to any positive fruition. This place serves Italian fare typical for Zurich, as are the prices, rather average for the prices with rather... More
