Definately a bit off the beaten path - not far, but you wouldn't come accross it if you weren't looking for it. I would say that it objectively has the best pasta in Zurich - and from the wait staff to the whole ambiance, it's very much a true Italian dining experience.

For quite a little while L´Ulivo was the local Italian restaurant for this end of Seefeld, Zurich. It lived at lunchtime from the large number of local office staff working in the banks, investment funds, lawyers´ and consultants´ practices that had spread out around this increasingly fashionable part of town. Service was ok, if sometimes idiosyncratic, food was eatable and - whatever - you didn´t have to walk all the way to the end of the road to find something. In other words, Ulivo - with its Zurich prices and small portions lived from its location. In the evening, it became a more sophisticated place with reasonable food, but prices to match.
Don´t know who things are going to change now that another Italian restaurant has opened next door - but one thing is certain. These guys needed a little local competition.

I have been 3 times to this restaurant and it has become one of my favourites in Zurich. The food is always very fresh and there are always a few daily specials according to the season. The service is efficient and friendly. A friend told me "it has the best pasta in Zurich" and until I have not been disappointed! Looking forward to my next dinner :)

Just have to look for it to find it....but it's really worth to drive or pass by! Very good antipasti, fresh made pasta with various sauces and excellent scaloppine. Good wine selection and very kind service. I will for sure go back :)
