I ate there a pizza. It is average. The restaurant is very nice, with nice decoration, but food is average.

Like most restaurants in Switzerland, this is not food at discount prices. We tried a wide variety of meats and fish (downstairs in the cozy "Grotto") and were never disappointed. We usually come for lunch, two lunch menu options are offered, typically one with pasta and one with meat or fish (menu about CHF 20-25). We just think the food... More

Whats nice about this restaurant is that the ambiance is very casual and the staff is friendly. The servers are purely Italian which makes the restaurant very special. The food is good and the place is very clean. The atmosphere is fine, On the weekends it will be very packed, it will make it a bit tight to seat. Not... More

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.
