“Very good lunch restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Very nice lunch restaurant. The service was quick and friendly, apart for having to wait for the bill. The pizza was a delicious surprise. It was crisp, not too fatty, and very tasty. So if you are in doubt of what to order, try the pizza ad pollo.

Sitting outside in the sun was very nice, watching the world go by. Once the works on Bellevue are done, it should be an even better atmosphere.

In terms of value for money - in Zurich terms it was very good. If you are coming as a tourist, don't be surprised at the prices, this is on the cheaper side.

“Decent pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Zurich resto prices are generally insane...seriously nuts, and I'm a native of NYC, so I know from high price tags. So, you have to find your Zurich eating bargains where you can, and Santa Lucia Corso is one of them. For dinner, you can share a pizza and an appetizer, have a glass of wine, plus coffee/tea, for a (remember: this is Zurich) REASONABLE CFF55-70. When entrees cost that much at area restos, SLC is a no-brainer. It's right next to a bid movie theater, too, so enjoy the film ;-)

“good food at fair prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

The mixed salad as starter for 15.-- francs is quite expensive, especially as it contains of mainly green salad with some peppers and carrots. Pizzas however are very good. We had Pizza Michelangelo for 26.-- francs, but we have to say that the Pizza has a lot of excellent Parma ham and is quite big. Excellent quality. Service is quite nice. Not the best in town, but friendly and efficient. I can absolutely recommend the restaurant especially for lunch.

“Great lower key option for dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Great selection of italian food; we tried both locations in Zurich. Pizza one night and pasta several nights later. Both were delicious. Food quality seemed fresh as salads were amazing. The options on the menu are actually almost overwhelming. Wine list was strong. Negative would be they are so busy that you are really packed into the place. Very loud and no elbow room (literally). I kept bumping the person next to me at the location on Theaterstrasse. That being said we went back three nights later to the other location so food stands above "room to nudge". TBon appetite.
