In this restaurant the food is tasted and light. It's not so bad, but the prices are too high even if you are swiss. The trade mark "italian" is the trap for the tourists, bit if you are born and grown in Italy, this trap doesn't work twice. Pity, because the staff is very kind and professional. This restaurant is... More

Great place for business and private dinners. Very friendly service. Delicious meals served in an elegant way. Nicely decorated area. Price is high but it is worth it.

Great seafood and lots of choices on the menu including veal. Not much choice of hot meals for vegetarians. Really kind employees and nice atmosphere. Though the menu choice could be a bit bigger for vegetarians and kids, and service is way too laid back. I hate to sit with dirty plates in front of me when I finish eating.

Our dinner at Bindella Ristorante was delicious and delightful. The ambiance is lovely with low lights that are not too low, quiet enough to enjoy conversation even though there are many people dining there, and servers who are expert in many languages and know the menu backwards and forwards. Everyone who works there is amazingly gracious and polite in their... More

This place was good but nothing exceptional. The area is well located and the decor is nice. However, I was expecting a friendlier service and a better organised. Otherwise, it was a good meal.

For a small Swiss university town Fribourg has the distinction of having some very good restaurants on offer, Bindella is one of them. The ambience alone is enough to warrant a drink (or 3!) with friends or colleagues and is the perfect place for a business lunch or relaxing evening with good wine and good food. Bindella has a well-earned... More

Two of us visited Fribourg on a Monday. Most of the restaurants are closed on Monday but Bindella was warm and inviting. The Italian/French menu is varied and the set daily meals are very reasonably priced. We had the special guinea hen and risotto. Excellent. Our waiter, Giuseppe was friendly and efficient. Would definitely return.

Beautiful restaurant in Fribourg. Chic and cool. Very simple and elaborated genuine Italian food. Maestro Carlo will take you away to his country and make you love it!

We had an evening dinner there few weeks ago and I was surprised how the food was great. It's not the kind of Italian restaurant you can find everywhere.
