On the ground floor there is a pizzeria, going down stars, into the basement, is the more upscale place to eat (they don't even serve pizzas anymore). Quite good real Italian food (the prawns in garlic oil with chili are excellent) and some home made pasta. Of course some interesting selection of meats and fish. Dessert comes on a cart,... More

We went back again after a disappointing evening about 2 years ago. The service has improved 100% from back then, very efficient, the lady in charge was polite, ditto our waiter. We will definitely go back.

I would suggest this place to everyone, as for romantic dinner, same as for a nice evening with friends. they have several rooms with different atmosphere, but please book a table on the ground floor- a la carte restaurant. The best choice is 4 dishes menu. They choose it for you and serve it with a pleasure. Amazing food.

The place is quite fine, you can have a nice pizza for a correct price, and they also do takeaway. Just a correct restaurant.

If I am in Switzerland I am going everytime to this restaurant to eat the Peppersteak with the French fries. The quality and taste are outstanding since years. Bravo.

Offers what a pizzeria must have: great pasta and pizza, friendly and fast service. Wine and drinks on recommendation are nothing spectacular but always a good match. Kids and families are very welcome. An ideal place to hang out after the movies or other activities... note: this is close to a military training center and sometimes crowded with young people...
