Where was the seasoning?

Lovely restaurant and a good alternative for the hotel restaurants in the neighbourhood. But the food was a bit dissapointing. We had lasagne, pizza and pasta carbonara. And all the dishes had the same problem: in need of a better seasoning. Or better, some seasoning. Service was ok, but we never... read more

Al Dente was recommended to us by our hotel, nearby. We were eating a late lunch, when most restaurants were closed. We were quickly seated, and the staff was polite. The food was delicious, and served quickly, although the main lunch crowd was already over when we arrived. If I travel through Zurich, I'd certainly eat there again.

Enjoyed the pasta for lunch, the minestrone as a starter and the pizza bread. Service was nice and attentive. Will definately come again ...

First time I had a dinner in this restaurant in September last year. Since then this was our favorite dinner place during my business trips to Zurich airport area with my team. The home made pasta is absolutely gorgeous! the secret choice is Penne Ale Dente. Also great selection of antipasti professionally prepared from the salad bar by the waiter.... More

I went as part of a group of five on a busy lunch time and whilst it was initially very noisy, once the rush had passed it was very pleasant. The waiter was delightful and I loved the food - a spaghetti with large prawns served in a spicy sauce. Main courses come with a free but rather basic house... More

We came in this restaurant with three friends. We all had pizza and a nice bottle of Barbera. Pizza was good but not exceptional. Service is efficient and professional and it is mainly German speaking but they can manage English. Wine was served correctly and professionally.

We dined early on a Friday evening. The service from the waiters was first class, the food surprisingly good and it came quickly. The carbonera is definitely worth a mention. Glattbrugg is not far from Zurich airport, so not the most obvious area to aim for in an evening, but this place is definitely worth a try if you are... More

It is located in the area where you don't expect a too fancy restaurant. And this place is not fancy. And that puts me off a bit - bare floor and somewhat I think they can do much better to make it homely or just nicer to justify 30+ CHF main-dish price level. But then food was OK, big portion....
