One of my favorite ITALIAN Ristorante

When in Zurich the second place we go is Bindella. Never disappointed. Yes, it is pricey and crowded and that must mean something. Wonderful pasta, fish, veal. It is all you would expect. Interesting clientele. Very traditional wait staff. You will enjoy your visit.

Bindella is an Italian restaurant with a great tradition located at 100m from Zurich Paradeplatz. The food is very nice and also the service is efficient and fast (especially at lunch time). On my last visit I had the tomme cheese with truffles as a starter and the dover sole as a main. The dover sole was a fish of... More

I've eaten at Bindella a number of times, the most recently on a date night with my wife. The ambiance is upscale Italian, with some nice hand-blown (Venetian?) chandeliers and a central bar area. The restaurant was relatively noisy, as others have pointed out, however it wasn't bothersome (we were sat on the periphery). Bindella's food is good, but expensive,... More

When my business partner came into town, we went to Bindella with a group of co-workers for dinner. The restaurant has a really charming atmosphere, really quite beautiful, but it did get loud as more people came in to dine. Our server handled our group of 7 like a champ. The food was fine, but it was not exceptional. I... More

Our go to weekday lunch location, great people watching, atmosphere and food. My personal favorite is the sole, so delicate with a crisp pinot grigio. Great location but make reservations for the end of the week as its quite busy, even if you want to eat at the bar.

when in doubt, go to Bindella. Expensive but absolutely flawless food and amazing staff. Worth every single penny. Italian goodness on a plate. If you love truffles, enjoy a nice plate of it. enjoy!!

Having come here for over 10 years, Bindella strives. A great menu, true Italian cooking, always constant. Service is attentive yet not too overdone. Both Pasta dishrea are great as are manu other maincourses such as the liver... a speciality. Wimelist excellent, albeit a bit overpriced, but an affordable bottle can be found. In the summer recomment outdoor seating and... More

We were seated promptly at our reservation, drinks ordered and brought, all started well. Then the food we ordered just did not arrive. We waited close to an hour after ordering for our first course. The waiter blamed the kitchen, but this is never quite the truth. I don't know if he forgot to put our order in or if... More
