Used to go there already 10 years ago, and still one of the best pizzas in town. They are large, thin, not overloaded, but with good quality ingredients and made the real Italian way. The pizza with raw ham and Gorgonzola you will not find everywhere, and it is delicious. The Tiramisu fatto in casa (home made) comes in a... More

Il Golosone is the place to go if you want good pizza - especially if you like delicious thin and crispy crust. I wouldn't recommend the pasta and the service can be very slow at peak lunch and dinner hours. Just be sure to allow enough time and you'll be glad you did once the pizza arrives at your table....

Reasonably priced for Central Zurich (20chf for a large pizza), it is a good place for an after-shopping meal. It is located right behind Jelmoli, 2min from Bahnhofstrasse. I must admit, the service was scatty, not very attentive and slow at times but hey, you give and you take. So yes - for a relaxed meal. No - for a... More

The pizzas were very good. They had vegetarian options as well. The place is quite crowded. The service is quite slow. Had to wait for atleast 10 mins for them to take the order and another easy 15-20 mins to get food. Recommend trying pizzas here. It is just off the main shopping street/HB station, so it is a nice... More

I was recommended here for the pizza which was superb. Lovely thin base so the focus is on the toppings. 4 out of 5 of us had pizza and all were happy. I had a Caramelised onion pizza which I have been raving about ever since. Service was slow - we were hungry and keen to order and it took... More

This is probably the best pizza I have ever eaten. It was amazing, as were my friends. We all had different ones and tasted each others and they were all as good as each other. We met the lovely St Lucian chef, who was charming and good fun. I will definitely return on our next visit to Zurich

We had a good dinner on a Friday evening in Il Golosone. We were happy that we had made reservations since the place was completely full around 8 pm. Despite the fact that it was crowded the service was ok. We had the Caprese Salad for starters and pizzas, pastas and entrecote for mains. The pizzas are incredibly large and... More

I come to that place regularly for lunch. Their pizza's are amazing and the venue is pretty charming. Value for money is ok for Zurich - 22 CHF for a salad and a pizza of your choice. However, the last two times I went to that restaurant the service was very slow. Normally we have 1h lunch break and appreciate... More

Went there for a lovely meal. Heard good reports about it so thought I would give it a try and I wasn't dissapointed. Very friendly waiter who explained the different choices on offer. I had a spaghetti carbonara and it was one of the nicest I've had.

I've been here several times in the last few years and always ordered pizza and always found it well above average for Switzerland. The service, however, leaves a lot to be desired, particularly for lunch on weekday. It tends to get very noisy
