“Real Italian in the old town of Zurich”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

This is a real family run restaurant in the middle of the old town in Zurich
Great atmosphere for lunch or dinner on a romantic visit, business or just with friends
Food very good, service can be a little slow when very busy but friendly
The food is just great and I have been about 10 times which should tell you I think its great

“Great dinner”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

Great italian dinner --- been here 3 times and the food has always been excellent! Tables are close together but that is common in Europe. I had a shrimp with pasta dish that was out of this world!

“Lovely restaurant,good friendly service.”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

A nice friendly welcome into a lovely restaurant. No English menus but staff did their best to translate. I had salmon,which was cooked well and tasted good,accompanied with quality veg. My colleague had pasta which he said could've been better. Average price range for Switzeland,all in all a good spot for some fresh tasty food.

“Took a chance and was rewarded”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Pulcino is near te railway station in Zurich, for a business trip this is a convenient location just a short walk after alighting from the train. I have been to this area several times and we picked this reataurant. I wanted to try the Calf's liver but was apprehensive initially, however I took a chance and was rewarded with a cook to perfection liver, meaning not under nor overcooked. The seasoning was great and it was a generous plate, which comes with risotto. We paired it with a recomended bottle of red wine and I had great meal. When I next come back to Zurich in a few months time, I will definitely go for another plate of Calf's liver.

“Nice discovery”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

I don't eat in the old town too often these days but recently i was taken to this restaurant and it was a nice surprise. The place itself is cozy and very very well located, no fuss yet good quality service and food. The food is fresh, the wine was delicious and the price tag just fine. This is a good place to come with friends on a nice evening out. It would not be my first choice in town but if i am in the old town again for dinner then i will come here again.
