This is a local neighborhood restaurant that is reasonably priced. The portions are very large and the service was excellent Our only complaint was that they charged us 2.50 chef for tap water! Since water is the only thing free in Switzerland we were not happy and complained . The owner did take it off the bill

The food was really good and the atmosphere is a bit romantic. I chose one of the specials and it was good and the size portion was perfect.

I had always promised my wife I would take her back to Positano, so we could not resist the name of this restaurant. As it turned out, it was a great decision. We were served by the very friendly and amusing Oscar, who ensured we had a good time. I had a fruitti di mare pizza, with mussels, pippies, prawns... More

We enjoyed our meal at this restaurant. The service was good and and the presentation excellent. Our pasta was actually not as good as the freshly done pasta at Manora on Bahnhofstrasse the following night. But enjoyed it. The gelato not great, IMHO.

Like the excellent grill-bar next door (Magoosh), this restaurant is just off the main tourist strolling area in Zurich Altstadt, but is well worth the extra five minutes of walking time. We had a great seafood mix with black squid-ink pasta, fabulous mixed vegetables and the home-made ice-cream is to die for. Very friendly service even though they seemed a... More

My recent dinning experience at Psitano was quite plain and unexcited. I think my expetations were higher although the reality was that the erstaurant wanted to do very little to a pasta dish. The pasta dish I had that evening was as ordianry as it can be. I was unimpressed. I thought i could ahve had a pizza instead.

So missing Italy and ate there twice during our visit to Zurich. Sat outside both nights. At dusk they bring out little luminarias for the tables. We had a spectacular Insalata di stagione to start and then went for the pizza. Just merely perfect; thin and crispy with good ingredients. Turns out that the Pizzaolo was actually from Naples. Waitstaff... More

This is more of a 3.5 stars. The restaurant was a nice sit-down place and we got a table easily on. Tuesday evening. Staff was super friendly and helpful. The food took a while to come out though. We had the buckwheat noodles, which was too salty. if it was less salty, it could have been good. I had the... More

A very nice Italian restaurant near the Hotel Continental - an easy walk down the hill toward the Aldstadt. The food was very good and the atmosphere was casual, but not too much so. A perfect evening after a day traveling from San Diego.

Thank Joseph S
