The Contrapunto is in downtown Zurich, right next to Paradeplatz. It is great for Italian food, especially lunch. The pasta dishes are excellent and the service is attentive.

Usually dine here on Sunday afternoons for late lunch. The food is always fresh and the service is speedy. I like best that the whole menu is available throughout the day so the choices are good. I especially like the Fennel Salad.

I really appreciate this restaurant. The service was friendly and efficient. Excellent Caprese Salad with a very good mozarella di buffala. The veal with slices of black truffle was verry good and the coast veal of my friend was really a must !
