“Best Italian I've had in a while”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

This restaurant was recommended to us by a friendly Italian guy at our hotel reception. No wonder then that this was easily the best Italian restaurant we visited in all of Switzerland. The service was amazing, the food was delicious, and the wine recommendation perfect. The food here is authentic, simple, and yet so incredibly delicious!

Sit outside for a quiet feel for Interlaken and a really nice view. Try the Piemonte wine.. its fantastic.

Woud definitely recommend this place to everyone

“Excellent, authentic Italian restaurant”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

We took a tip from our hotel concierge and visited Citta Vecchia on the last night of our stay at Interlaken. The walk to the resaturant was short from the centre of the town, but takes you over the river and into the old part of town, situated in an old square. The restaurant was busy which was a good sign. The owners were working in the restaurant and were very friendly and helpful.

We started with good old Brushetta which my wife reckons was one of the best she has tasted, I had the tomato soup which was piping hot, and full of flavour and obviously home made.

The next course was a spicy chicken and mushroom pizza, cooked to perfection and extremely tasty, again full of flavour and extremely cripsy crust, so good I never managed to finish it. The other main was home made lasagne again, excellent.

We only managed to share a Tiramasu, however no complaints here.

The bill was also very reasonable and as I said earlier the owners were serving and took time to stop and talk and give you a bit of history about the area. If you are in the area, don't miss this place out.

“Níce Italian nice location”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

Booked this on a really hot evening. Wasn't sure from previous reviews or web site but there is some outdoor seating and it is overlooking a square in a quiet location. Would definitely recommend. Excellent service and food.

Reviewed June 16, 2014 via mobile

I have dinner at Citta Vecchia since the mid 90's. The food has always been good. On my last trip I had soup and pizza. Enjoy!
