Had a delicious 3 course dinner here, sitting at the window watching the Zurich world go by...lovely antipasti starter, steaks were so tender, just the caramel ice cream let it down as it was too rich and needed to be served with something lighter. Would definitely go again.

Fast lunch place for good quality Italian. Fast service. Tomato soup is home made and great! It's busy for lunch but probably dead for dinner... The have a bar there but I've never seen anyone there after work. So basically it's a great place for business lunch!

Really cossy restaurant with very good Waiter service, menu and food offerings. Really enjoyed the experience. Only negative was the cost of wine to accompany our meal - could be a Zurich thing though.

Good food, okísh service, decent prices. Run of the mill Italian. We ate on a Friday night before a concert. Service was pretty sluggish and most of the staff were not German speaking and their English was not great. Interior is really nice and there are plenty of tables. Food was good when we finally got it. Great spinach.

First time there and already sure that there is no love. I had Gnocchi, a simple Italian dish, there is not much you can do wrong, but my gnocchi where swimming in butter and that's it! Well I obviously was very disappointed! The people next to my table were waiting for almost half an hour to put their orders, btw... More

If you go to this restaurant you must try the pasta. Its fresh and delicious. The burrata with prosciutto crudo is awesome and you dont feel like pasta try the paillard. They have a good wine card and the atmosphere is great. Its in the heart of Zurich, so if you want to go for a drink somewhere afterwards its... More

We had a dinner at La Piazzetta with a group of 6 persons. Food was good, and the wine list was ok. The service was, however, not on the level to be expected in a restaurant on this price level. Restaurant was almost empty, but we had to wait forever on the main course. I think they forgot our orders...... More

Dining at Piazetta is a MUST. Excellent Food - especially Branzino al Forno or the Wiener Schnitzel known as Elephant Ear. For the dessert I enjoyed on of the best Crème Brûlée I ever had. Just go and enjoy - Bon Appétit

I was slightly disappointed with this restaurant. On arriving the staff were very friendly which continued all night. The style of the restaurant is typically Italian in a relaxed way. We were in a group of eight, and we're never rushed. The menu is in Italian and the waitress helped where I couldn't translate. I had the tuna carpaccio for... More

Nice, more formal ambience, very centrally located opposite of Kaufleuten, close to Paradeplatz. Went there for dinner with friends, but La Piazetta can also be recommended for a business lunch. The homemade shrimp ravioli were delicious and all dishes were very nicely presented. It is not exactly cheap but in line with similar restaurants in Zürich.

Thank atsfrm11
