Great food, great service.
It really feels like a travel to Spain for a while.
The place is nicely decorated, and the staff just treats us like royalty. It feels good when you are made important being a customer. Very friendly staff that took us through the choices on the menu...
Had a great Portuguese wine with the meal. Started with the Patanegra ramon... sinfully delicious. The steaks good, but the fish better!
Enjoy, I did.

This is not a cheap place (what is cheap in Switzerland anyway?), but if you have the urge to eat well and do not want to waste money in a random Swiss restaurant or chain, well, Gran Sasso is THE place. A Spanish restaurant run by a Galician, who usually are hard and honest workers with a great cooking ability, it mixes its Iberian specialities with some Italian insertions. The outcome is excellent with some great dishes such as the steak, the paella and the tiramisú. Highly recommended!

Excellent filet steak - well spiced and perfectly cooked over coals. The wine list is really expensive with hardly any choice at the lower end below CHF 60. The tiramisu is not great despite some good previous reviews on this site. The service is solid and friendly. The décor is welcoming.

You will probably not walk by this restaurant as it is not in the touristy area; but it is easy to reach by car or public transport. I got it via a groupon.
The quality in the restaurant is great. It is fairly small and has a chalk-coal grill inside where the Chef grills the meat and fish. When I visited the staff existed out very professional gentleman in their 50 or 60s. They made most of the side dishes in the same 'living room as well. Their service is great.
To food was of very good quality as well. It might be a bit on the pricy side (50 - 70 CHF for a well sized steak); but the quality and taste won't disappoint you. Wines, deserts and spirits are all possible.
If you are looking for the trendy stylish restaurant; look further.
If you want to go with your our friend or family and you are looking for a cozy place with good food; this might be a spot you want to try out.
