“Very fine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2014

Walking about Interlaken we crossed the river to Unterseen where we found this very fine Italian restaurant. The service was prompt , we had our wine and beer within minuets after arriving. Once we had made our selection our dinners arrived in good time and everything was very well prepared delicious. ( note, there were eleven of us from age 7 to 75 so this was not so easy to please everyone.) At the end of dinner it started to rain . The proprietor was very kind and lent us umbrellas and said , OK to bring them back tomorrow.. I like this place.

“Found a real nice one”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

We were wandering in Interlaken looking for a meal on our first night. We did not want a meal on the main tourist route. We saw Citta Vecchia that had what we thought were a good number of locals out enjoying the restaurant. We checked the menu and it did look inviting so we asked for a table. The staff and host were very welcoming and looked after us given that we were tourists ourselves. The meals were tasty and for Switzerland, reasonably priced. We intend to go there again tonight....

“Well worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2014

Very good service and really well cooked food. Pricey for an Italian but we think it was worth it. Probably best to reserve

“We weren't disappointed.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014

We spotted this restaurant while on a walk early in the day. We decided to return for dinner and we weren't disappointed. We asked to be seated inside even though it was a warm evening and most of the outside tables were already taken.
We were seated close to the pizza oven and pizza maker. Of course, the pizza was excellent as was the rest of our Italian dinner. Everything was authentic and fresh. Staff members were all excellent and enthusiastic. The owners also assisted in taking our order and in serving.
We were lucky to find this great restaurant and we highly recommend it.

“Excellent food and warm, welcoming service ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

Our family of four was getting tired, hungry, and irritable as we travelled from Geneva to Grindelwald so we needed to stop for dinner in Interlaken. After reading reviews i called to check on the availability of gluten free options. This has been a challenge in Switzerland and France but Citta Vecchia has gluten free pasta and pizza crust for our youngest son. We all had a wonderful meal and they were very accommodating and warm with their service. Our family entered the restaurant road weary and left all smiles and excitement for the next day. I highly recommend.
