Came here on the recommendation of a local Italian... the food really let this place down. The quality simply was not there and I don’t think you could call this authentic Italian. Starter was simple and good, but the main really was very poor indeed....More

Classical Italian food of good quality. Pastas were nicely cooked with tasteful sauces. Reasonably priced, at least for Zurich. Nice place and agreable staff.

Nice place, decent food and service. They charge for tap water though, which I really don't understand. This is a top dollar place so don't see why we have to pay for something that flows freely. Otherwise it's a very respectable place and not as...More

Craving some Mom style Italian Food for lunch? Then go here... Fixed combinations for high quality lunches or an a la carte style too filetto de manzo, cordon bleu and the tomatoes soup are my favorites here...
