The restaurant has a very nice decoration with a taste of typical North I Italian elements. I wish the food were same good. Disappointed with pizza. It was over dry with rather ticker bread than I expected.

The most terrible pizza I ever had - they have a pizzaiolo but he doesn't know how to make italian pizza. The dough is terrible, tasteless, thick and tastes like doner kebab bread. The toppings are oily and tasteless, regardless what you choose. We tried to tell the waiter that the pizze were disappointing but there was no excuse or... More

I don't come here often as it is quite far but the food never disappoints. There is a wide selection of food on the menu all made fresh. The asparagus menu I had the ravioli to start and it was impeccable !!! Then for our main course was beef stroganoff which is cooked at the table . You cannot order... More

Very kind service with care and human touch. Excellent pizza also customised if wished. Good wine option and food variety changing during the year.

This is your run of the mill italian restaurant. A typical dining experience. The atmosphere is very cramped on a saturday night. Book early or late to have more of a breathing space. We all ordered 3 pizzas. It was not worth the attempt. First it was dry, after a couple of slices, the pizza just did not seem right.... More

the food is good, the room is a bit dark, but otherwise nice, the outdoor seating is really nice, too, for a quick lunch indoor is ok, but I prefer more in the summer

Like most restaurants in Switzerland, this is not food at discount prices. We tried a wide variety of meats and fish (downstairs in the cozy "Grotto") and were never disappointed. We usually come for lunch, two lunch menu options are offered, typically one with pasta and one with meat or fish (menu about CHF 20-25). We just think the food... More

Whats nice about this restaurant is that the ambiance is very casual and the staff is friendly. The servers are purely Italian which makes the restaurant very special. The food is good and the place is very clean. The atmosphere is fine, On the weekends it will be very packed, it will make it a bit tight to seat. Not... More
