If you just fancy a pizza at the weekend (they are on offer for CHF15) you had better order a side dish as well even if you don't feel like it. Our waiter became rather impatient with us as it was all we wanted: a nice fresh pizza! Do we have to accommodate the restaurant or are they here to... More

This place is OK, the food is acceptable, the pizza was well cooked (I had the Sciliana) and the service was polite and attentive. Not spectacular but acceptable.

Olive oil is obviously the favorite ingredient in this restaurant. My chicken salad was tasty but very greasy. All the food we ordered was very oily. Also, we sat close to the pizza oven which smells very burnt. Would advise anyone to ask for a spot in the front of the restaurant.

We went for a business dinner. The place was full. The interior is very nice on a rainy day, warm colors. Service was mediocre though - very kind but time to time quite inattentive. Food is good but nothing spectacular - however they have more reasonable prices than most other restaurants in town.

A nice place, very comfortable with nice people to serve you. A small amuse bouche is nicely offered Regarding the food a small amuse bouche is nicely offered, bread was in quantity and refill often. I tried spaghetti alla vongole. They were just perfect! The suggested wine was indeed appropriate. I liked it!

The restaurant is located very close to the town center, and offers a good space for business, families and groups inside (during summer time it is possible to be served outside). The food quality very high and the menu is rich enough. The service is also good and generally fast. I would recommend to try the first courses (pasta based... More
