Friendly and excellent service. Even if we arrived late in the evening, they warmly welcomed us. As always food and wine was perfect.

This pricy restaurant has a very nice menu. The ambiente is upscale and most of the guests were wearing suits. Room is very ornamental with a mixture of neo-classic but discrete decoration. Table have real tablecloth and napkins. Great if you plan to go to the opera, which is just a few steps away. Also very appropriate for business lunch... More

We really enjoyed dining here and the restaurant itself is beautiful and ornate, inside a historic but well kept building. Certainly has some wow factor when you walk in, and a perfect romantic or date venu. Service is sufficient and the staff are helpful with the extensive wine list and menu. We both had the prawns to start and they... More

This was my third visit to the Conti and it was just as good as the last two. I had the porcini mushrooms to start, grilled Bream to follow and even managed to squeeze in dessert of Semi-Freddo with nougat. Absolutely fabulous and all in a delightful classical setting with first class service.

Behind the impressive Zurich Opera House, is one of the most innovative and excellent Italian restaurants one could imagine. The cuisine is nothing short of a magnificent blend of imagination, innovation, and true tribute to the unmatched taste of Italian cooking and presentation as edible art. The carpaccio di pulpo (thinly sliced discs of octupus)surrounding a wonderfully grilled prawn (gambero... More

Conti is one of those rare places, where quality is steady. You know what you will get, depending on what you order it will be either business class or first. In any case: fresh vegetables, great pasta, meat of prime quality and this all served with a smile and professionality. And this all in a classy setting, located in the... More

Traditional Italian cuisine in a beautiful decor, perfectly layer out tables and character waiters that have been there for many many years. Whole Fish cooked in a salt jacket, porcini when in season with pasta, veal or risotto. Everything is mouthwatering and cordon bleu cuisine.

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
