“Italian swiss style”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

So cute. Has sofas instead of chairs. Nice cozy atmosphere. The staff is truly italian, but they act swiss: efficient, on time, precise!

Great place for lunch or dinner.

“Average pizza, convenient location, not the best service, but good value for money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Every now and then, we go to Il Postino (and we keep coming back). First of all, the Italian spelling mistakes in the menu are amusing, by now we think they do it on purpose. The pizza is really OK, Zurich average. The waiters are nice, but the service is a little slow and forgetful. The atmosphere is nice. What is also very convenient is the parking facility (free), one of the prime reasons for us to come back.

In short, good value for money, be patient with the service.

“Best pizza in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

When we want to eat a pizza, we go to "Il Postino". The pizzas are all great. My favorite is "Pizza Royale". The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is relaxing. In summer you can eat outside. The prices are modest, especially for the wines and the deserts.

“Average pizza, decent price, good value for money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2012

We've been here several times. The pizzas are average, but not bad at all. The service is good and quick. Plenty of room between tables, you do not feel suffocated, which is not so common in Zurich! In summer you can seat outside.
Not the best pizza in Zurich but good value for money, and a quite relaxed atmosphere.
