I ordered minestrone and fried calamari. Minestrone tasted like canned soup and very salted, so I left more than half. The vegetable in it tasted like frozen food. I still had to pay CHF16. The fried calamari dish was also very disappointing. Friend said the pasta was good, so majority of customers ordered pasta. Probably not so many would order... More

We were 6 and tried to have something light to eat after a concert. Two couples and one friend alone. After drinks both couples asked each one for a pizza to share. We were not so hungry but wanting to grab a bite and a few beers. Restaurant almost empty. The waiter (not his fault) comes back saying the owner... More

Great portions - great service - friendly staff - good quality - their penne a la siciliana is a must! Reserve in advance not to be disappointed.

I don't the restaurant as I was lunching on the terrasse (a bit noisy due to the avenue) but I ate Tagliatelle with Bolets (mushrooms) and I have to say that it was one of the best pasta I ever eat. I will try it again but inside and taste/test other specialities.

Eat there today with family and friends. Both Pizzas and carpaccio good , Spagetti Vongoli very good. I had Frito Misto and it was soggy , lukewarm and not crippy at all. Too bad wont try it again. Service OK but not great. My first time here.

Although they pizza might be a little bit more expensive than somewhere else, they're worth their prices. They're big and taste good. The staff is always great, they often offer the limoncello at the end. It's pretty well located. Go for it.

I do not understand how this place can be packed at lunchtime. The food is no where near good Italian food. Pizzas are not good, with low quality cheese and too doughy. And it's very expensive, probably due to its prime location.

This place is too cramped, offering very average pasta dishes that have zero refinement (or taste) about them. The pizzas are decent but they can't really compete with Luigia or even Molino's. Not sure what else to say really. For a place that is in such a prime location and could attract so much more positive attention, I think they... More

Came here for lunch with my lovely wife just seeing the place from the team. Had not read any reviews beforehand. What a nice surprise. One the best authentic Italian foods ever had. The service is excellent too.

We visited with a very large group, and all agreed the food was excellent. We had some trouble because the waiter had very little English, but we all made it through, and they were willing to redo a pizza when it wasn't what someone wanted. The food was a little salty, but the pizzas were very good. Avoid the house... More
