Expensive - but you get what you pay for

Having lived in Zrh until recently, I can recommend this place highly. It has a great central location, generally tables are easy to get with sufficient notice and in the summer the terrace area outside is great.

Fine dining at one of Zurich's fine dining restaurants the Bindella, located on a side streets behind the Bahnofstrasse, the main shopping street, nearby to Hermes boutique.

The menu is sufficient. With many dishes available both as a starter or main course. Clearly the Bindella group has a 'thing' for truffles. Offering at their flagship restaurant did not disappoint with veal tartare and truffle shavings a delight. My favorite Italian dish is calves liver and the version here was simply delicious. Lively yet intimate ambiance you can... More

located downtown Zurich, nice location, good fresh Italian food, nice wine list. Service is good. Restaurant was fully booked, small tables but enough privacy. Expensive, even for Switserland.

Sufficient. Considering that is always difficult to evaluate Italian restaurant abroad (as I'm Italian), but this one doesn't offer what expected. I had a marinated salmon as starter that was good but too much thin ans so not as tasteful as it could be. As main course I ordered a steamed turbot served with rosti. The fish was flavourless and...

Reading all the other reviews I wonder what went wrong on the day of our visit. Dinner for four has costed 430 CHF. Tuna pate - just some canned tuna blended with cream with 4 burned pieces of baguette. Main course - fried sea bass - totally blunt, awful wine (took a glass of their branded one, bindella). Staff has... More

I loved my meal here. So much that we went back again for lunch right before our flight The white truffle tagging.. Sublime. The butter and cheese ravioli, so rich and decadent. Perhaps the only thing that can be improved is the dessert, our tiramisu is a bit dry. And the service could be slightly improved given the prices

Bindella In Gassen is one of the best Italian restaurants in Zurich. Well worth a visit if you like traditional Italian food and wine.

The food is pretty good, the truffle risotto is creamy. I did not like the fact that it is always packed and because of the tiled floors, very noisy. I was hoping to have a conversation along with the dinner, but unfortunately conversation was next to impossible. The service as well was a bit disappointing, with the waiter charging an... More
