Not big on trying new things but this was recommend by a friend as his favorite restaurant in Zurich, so I gave it a shot and it was well worth it! The risotto with Parmesan and sea bass was very good! The service was excellent. The desserts were just okay. Highly recommend it! -Enjoy

Bindella seems to be a very popular restaurant among local Swiss inhabitants and also local expats. Old fashion brasserie (Zurich style) that serves Italian dishes with honorable sizes. Most of us were quite happy with their dishes. Waiters are experienced and working fast. I have to say that despite the many dark truffle shelves on my tagliatelle (and no additional... More

My wife and I couldn't decide what we wanted for dinner and as it got colder we said let's just go in here. What a great decision! Great wine, great staff, great food. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

A real Italian treat. Tomato soup was delicious, buffalo mozzarella salad was a gem with mozzarella simply melting in your mouth. The veal li one was cooked just right with al dents tagliatelle and the ricotta risotto is a real prize. Not cheap, but you taste every Swiss frank in the ingredients, it's really really that good

Whenever in Zürich, I NEVER miss Bindella ! The place is charming, true Italy down to the waiters outfit (and they DO speak italian...! great !) ! The starched table cloths make you feel comfortable at once, and you are so welcomly greeted ! A good selection of first class dishes, entrees, desserts, your mouth waters just at the reminder...

I booked this restaurant in trepidation as going out to dinner with seven other colleagues who love their food and drink and who vacation in Italy annually. They were not disappointed. The Sea Bass was mouthwatering, the guinea fowl with truffles moist and delicious, the lamb perfect, the veal tender. All sauces were made to perfection. Desserts were not disappointing... More

This restaurant is a traditional Italian, family-style, old-fashioned place. The service was quick and the food was very good. I liked the mix of flavours and use of seasonal ingredients on the menu. The restaurant did fill up and apparently you need reservations as it is very popular.

Great food, ambiance and service. Love it when I can get a Brunello for 90 Swiss. Wonderful lamb and veal chop. 250 for 2 with the wine. A great deal in Zurich.
