Great restaurant, location, staff and food. The staff is always friendly and with that central location no wonder they are busy-book in advance to avoid disappointment-

You can taste great fish plates along the river of Zurich. I suggest to have prawns plate, very delicious.

Being a landlocked country, Switzerland is not really the place for fish, except river fish maybe. I remember my childhood with fish and chips and other frozen stuff... But fortunately, migration from the 50s onwards got international kitchen here. Italians were getting us pasta and fish... And Bianchi is the Italian restaurant in Zurich for fish, not the cheapest, not... More

A nice setting at a very convenient location along Limmatquai. Food selectione is largely seafood and fish based. The grilled sole os very nice. Noodles with truffles were average. Starters like cherry tomatoes with burrata cheese are nice. Wine menu is sound. Overall verygood food but rather expensive.

Modern restaurant in the center of the city. Tuna tartare with white truffle (barely visible) followed by cod a la romana. Good fresh fish prepared in a simple way. Decent wine list and friendly service. OK not great

Excellent place if you have a craving for high end Italian food. I had the white truffles risotto and it was fantastic! Good service, pleasant environment and a good place for dinner with friends, family or for business.

One of the best place to enjoy fresh fish in Zurich. Part of several other restaurant, this one was originally a fishmonger in the area before becoming a restaurant. So no way to find better fish. The restaurant provides a good service but it is a bit formal and after 10 pm there a good chance you will be the... More

We ate in this restaurant on our last trip to Zurich. We arrived late for our reservation but the staff were accommodating and helpful none-the-less. Our food was very good (although we found better elsewhere in Zurich - particularly Kindli and Cantinetta Antinori). The ambience was lovely - we sat outside in the pleasant weather. We'd definitely come again. The... More

It is a casual location on the riverside with a nice seafood collection and good pasta, service is perfect and very friendly, if it was not elegant and well serviced I could say it is a casual restaurant too, but worth to try, fair prices as well.

Great place for a meal, whether for business or pleasure. The service staff were very friendly and attentive. I had the seafood risotto, and the seafood was excellent and very fresh; and cooked to perfection, retaining the flavour and tenderness. The risotto was also done very nicely. Definitely one of the good restaurants at in Zurich old town area, and... More
