Elegant Room, Ordinary Food, Too Expensive

While the food was routine Italian, the cost was not. Expensive. We ended up going here because the nearby restaurant we intended to stop by was closed due to the May Day observances. In fact, lots of restaurants and stores were closed that day, but not Bindella, so with limited choices we went... read more

Bindella is an institution in Zurich, and soon in the whole of Switzerland. The family roots are with the wine business back in the early XX century when they were importing Italian wines. As a result the wine cards of the Bindella's restaurant are always impressive (among all with a lot of wine from Antinori). The prices at Bindella are... More

We stopped in for an early dinner. We were able to sit outside in during the lovely summer weather. Two of us ordered a seafood pasta - I forget the name- that was out of this world. I still think about it! One of the best meal we had during our trek through Europe.

I had veal chop with oven potatos and vegetables and a great glass of white wine. The food was perfect and very tasteful and the service was very good as well. Nice outside seating.

Business meeting in downtown Zurich. Arrived too early, time for a light lunch. A little stroll in the city and "bumped" into this famous restaurant. It was just mild enough to sit on the terrace and there was just space for the two of us. Nice "business lunch", service by very professional in multilingual waiters. Expensive, but what would you...

The meal was OK, not more than that, the atmosphere was very good due to the position of the restaurant in the middle of the crunchy alleys of Zurich, the service was BAD, we felt like we were unwanted guests at the place.

Regular choice. Excellent seasonal wine selection from small producers. Main course of guinea fowl with truffles was spot on. Terrace for after dinner drink worked perfectly.

With a respectful disclaimer, Switzerland isn't Italy, so food here is always going to be a couple of degrees away from the real thing. That said, Bindella remains an institution in Zurich that can't be ignored - I'll go again!

I had the set "Giorno" menu that included a rocket and parmesan salad, and spaghetti with chanterelle mushrooms. Both dishes were unbelievably delicious! My entire meal was just CHF 28.80, that too with quality and quantity far beyond expected. The rest of the table ordered a few other dishes (which were a little bit more expensive, but not unreasonably expensive... More
