We were two families (4 adults, 4 children). We got a big table for us and got excellent, uncomplicated and friendly service, which helped a lot to enjoy the evening. The food is good (above average for Zurich) and the portions are very generous. Price is ok.

Was visiting Zurich from the US. Had already had several dinner in the trip elsewhere without any issue regarding tips. I was led to believe the tip was figured into the bill Went to dinner in the early evening, and had a very good meal. But at the time of paying the bill, the waiter asked if we wanted to leave a tip. When I asked him "wasn't the tip included in the bill", he unhesitatingly said no, and therefore fooled me into leaving a tip.
Also ate at Toscano, with far superior meal and service.
Wouldn't go back to Vallocaia, especially with Toscano as an option!

If you can avoid it; which is too bad as the owner is nice. Not the same with the servants and the kitchen. You wait for almost an hour to be served...Pasta (Pici) overcooked. You order lamb chops with sauce: after you have finished the chops, the gravy arrives...that's their timing. Much overpriced (Zurich is VERY expensive) for the (low) quality. Good outdoor tables. Could be MUCH better with little effort.
