Food is good, service attentive and efficient. In the evening more relaxed atmosphere and also some nice meat and fish as well as pasta on the menu. Nicely decorated and romantic place in... 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.

Four of us showed up for a late (by Swiss standards) dinner on a Thursday at 21:45 pm. All was reasonably good - until the vill came where a bottle of wine was "mistakenly" charged to us - only 80 CHF or a 30% surcharge... Considering the nonchalant reaction of the waitress this could NOT have been a mistake. Pity... More

All was good until one of our friend checked the bill: they had added a chf 80.- wine bottle which we had ordered nor drunk...The way the staff reacted, too comfortably, left an bad after taste...

There is nothing in this restaurant that would make me visit it again. Rather small choice of dishes, what guarantees fresh meal. I would say it is rather pricey.

Excellent lunch with family of 4. Pasta are fresh and sauces are delicious. Salad sauce smells freshly made. Service was outstanding. Correct prices.

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 busy as one should expect.

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...

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!

Thank Zurichphotographer
