Good bistro in centre of Zurich (east side)

Rather unusual bistro in that you order in a form of "self-service" - an up-market version of "Subway" and located in an old building that must have had a totally different function judging by the tiled floor, stained glass windows and dark wood pannelling. The flat breads that we ordered with our... read more

The place is beautifully decorated, pretty modest, but still with style. The staff is friendly and their Piadina are made freshly in front of you. You can fill them however you want and all of them are good. Can't do anything wrong going to this place. Except if you are really, really hungry I would suggest another place, as these... More

Uncomplicated and very charming lunch bar which serves very nice piadina (toasted pancakes with meat, cheese and other fillings) "sandwiches" and nice selection of drinks. Beautiful interior.

I never had a piadina before. It is a rolled up sandwich like a crepe, but a thin circle of dough (instead of batter) is quickly grilled on a griddle. Good selection of fillings, including vegetarian options. Order at a counter then take to a table. Local beers available. Simple place with old furniture, but clean fast friendly service. One...

I come every time I am in the city center and have a craving for a quick and delicious snack. The food is wonderfully simple - my favorite is the piadina with stracchino and aubergine - and fresh and there is always the option to have a second one ... Maybe with the artichoke paste, with zucchini, with ham or... More

I brought up with Piadina, and I can tell this is a really good Piadina, cooked on the spot with quality ingredients. Price is high if compared to Italy, however it is fair for being in the centre of Zurich. Highly recommended.

I have been a few times to the Piadina bar, the piadine that they prepare are really good and they are filled with fresch and delicious ingredients. The diameter of the piadine is rather small, but the taste is very good. Definitely recommended.
