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

Our food was good and Zurich is expensive, but I'm a southern boy and am just not going to spend 64€ for a fish or 45€ for calves liver. I did not think the wait staff was at all friendly but they were fairly available. There was a puppy under the table next to us so I assume it is... More

Its very pricey and very business but it is so worth it - the veal with pasta and truffle alone makes a trip to Zurich worthwhile!

Bindella is an institution in Zurich. I am going there since many years - lovely italian food. If you like fish take the sea bass. Good with friends as well for business. In summer periods you can also sit outside. Inside sometimes a bit noisy (voices) - at least you are sure nobody else can hear you;-)

Simply a superb meal with 3 business associates. Great atmosphere, a great server and delicious food. Good wine list from across Europe and regular specials. I will go back on my next trip to Zurich. Exceeded expectations on every level.

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...
