Let's start from the location, it's next to the Technopark surrounded by hotels and others restaurant.
I ate pasta and it wasn't special, probably one or two minutes in the water would have been better.

You are in Zurich so do not expect to find something cheap. I paid 6 (yeah SIX) chf a bottle (0.5l) of water... and 25 for the pasta with ragù.

Good crew and style. You can eat outside. There's a street just next to the restaurant so you can't really realx.

We've eaten at the Niederdorf branch of Toscano on many occasions and we keep coming back. Their great plus is the seating outside in Schmidgasse, a narrow pedestrianised lane which renders the place an almost Mediterranean atmosphere on a nice summer's evening (even without a reservation, we've managed to get a nice table on busy nights such as the day of the Streetparade). The service is competent and friendly, the food is excellent, be it fish or seafood, pasta or meat. Good selection of fairly priced wines and great desserts and coffee, too, usually accompanied by a digestif such as grappa or limoncello - on the house, like in Italy! No wonder Toscano is our favourite Italian restaurant in our hometown!

Very good location for lunch. Good assortment of pasta, risotto and meat for a very good price. In the summer you can sit outside in the narrow street by the entrance. You better book a table because after 12 o'clock it gets busy.

My wife and I went here last week and had a lovely time. The atmosphere is authentic and the service outstanding. My wife ordered the tuna carpaccio and home-made ravioli. The ravioli portion was small, but my wife asked for some more -- and the waiter happily obliged. My beef carpaccio was outstanding. The wine list is reasonably priced by Zurich standards. Upstairs is a cozy room that is ideal for larger parties. Lastly, this restaurant is in the heart of Niederdorf, the heart of Zurich's traditional pub and restaurant scene.

We had two different plates with home made pasta, spaghetti and papardelle, both had an excellent taste and were prepared as it should be (al dente). Toscano offers a wide choice of Italian wines all at affordable prices. Also the cheese platter was great, with 4 cheeses, each with their very specific character
The service is friendly and professional, the interior is luxurious and chique.
Recommended to all fans of Italian food
