The service was questionable...the food was bland. However the ambiance was great with mostly dimmed lights and candles.

This area of Zurich is my favorite. It's called the Bellevue Platz area or, simply, the place behind the Opera House. My favorite hotel is there, the Hotel Europe. And right across from the hotel, on the same Durfourstrasse, there's a fantastic Italian restaurant by the name of Conti. It's specialty? Pasta with truffles and an olive oil so organic,... More

This is an amazing building and atmosphere for a restaurant, which came heavily recommended by the concierge at our hotel (Eden au Lac). The menu looked great, provided by a slightly pompous waiter. It went a bit downhill after that I'm afraid as after we had chosen what we wanted from the specials menu, the waiter then told us that... More

The Conti is perfectly located in Zurich's Seefeld district right next to the Opera. On my first visit to the Conti I had high expectations which, unfortunately, were not met at all. The staff was superficially friendly, the food was good - but not more - and the prices were way too high. For example, the fried egg with truffles... More

After a long day of flights, cars and meetings I wandered into Conti late into the evening. Just entering the lovely restaurant was relaxing and the meal only confirmed my good and fortunate choice. A delicate salad with pecorino baked with honey for starters, followed by vitello al limone with a side of pasta and washed down with a fresh... More

I ate several times, the atmosphere is very good, but the food is average and overprice, the service is friendly, and fast. The restaurant is very well decorated with paintings and statues, very pretty inside, and very cozy

Though visiting Zurich at a busy time we were able to get a table despite not booking. The restaurant is nice and the food good with efficient service. Near the lake and worth returning too.

Very elegant restaurant, serving relatively expensive but authentic Italian food even late at night (we left at one a clock in the morning). Simple spaghettis were a real treat. Excellent, discreet service; impressive wine list. Very close to the Opera of Zurich and several good hotels, the lake of Zurich is only about 200 m away.

After a long flight and a tiring day we decided to eat across the street from our hotel, The Ambassador. The hotel had recommended it and we enjoyed our meal. The pasta and salads were excellent, the sevice was good and the little touches like the tuna served alongside the delicious bread and the chocolate at the conclusion were nice.

Went there for a business dinner. Service was very good and the food and wine are also very good. The location is excellent and walking distance to the main streets and the lake!
