Decent Italian

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!

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.

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

Very nice Italian place. The service was good and the food was tasty. I left off one start because it seemed like the staff was just nice enough to be acceptable but really could care less if we were there or not. The caprese salad to start the meal was excellent, the bread was delicious, and the pork chops were... More

The Italian food was superb. Nothing to dislike but go early for dinner as it gets full quickly. Flor123
