Some nice specialities

Al Dente is a high standard italien with some really nice specialities, e. g. my favourite "Pizza Al Dente" with trufle oil - nice. The waiters are friendly and attentive. The only downer: When you are going here during the week for lunch it takes quite a while to finish the meal as you have to... read more

I had dinner here during a business trip in Zurich. The atmosphere is great, with atmosphere very classy feel at most elegant touches throughout. That's why I was very surprised to find, well, hear, two dogs with different dinner parties. The dogs almost got on a fight so that was a bit strange for me. Maybe they would have been... More

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 received a wine card. So we ordered the house... 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.
