Wow.....the roast lamb was prepared excellently! Two rather large pieces, perfectly tender and medium rare, with a thick garlic-thyme crust. The accompanying risotto also good (and a huge portion). But the pasta with artichokes was just good, nothing outstanding about it. A simple dish, with not enough pieces of sliced artichoke hearts, a bit too much garlic (between slices and the pesto), but a nice amount of buffala mozzarella. Cute decor - like walking into your grandmother's home full of family history. Will probably go back for the lamb. Easy access from Tram 4, Limmatplatz.

After discovering this restaurant a while ago with a friend I keep returning there when I am in the area. I love the atmosphere and the very friendly staff, and it has become my favorite Italian restaurant in Zurich. The food there is excellent. My favorite dish is the black tagliatelle with seafood. You have to search for the pasta because there is a lot of seafood on top! The restaurant has also a selection of very good wines. If you plan to go make sure you reserve a table because the place is always pretty full - and it does get a bit noisy when the place is packed.
