“great food”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

Went there with friends on a Monday evening. Restaurant was crowded, not a single table available - one can assume that this restaurant is very popular and good. Reservation is probably always needed.
Food was great. Staff friendly and attentive.
It gets very hot and sticky in the restaurant, so we wanted to leave shortly after we finished eating. Atmosphere could be better.

“Stick your fork in unrivalled Italian cuisine”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

Look no further when in Zurich and in search of a great Italian restaurant. Located in the slightly snooty Seefeld district, Miracle's Italian dishes, handmade pasta and outstanding pizze are yet to beaten. Although it can get very hot inside, this is one of the best Italian experiences I've had - especially considering the fact that the cooks are actually not Italian, but Swiss. Definitely worth it - but book ahead!

“Reasonable prices, excellent service - great food!”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

Extremely reasonably priced Italian food with excellent service - a gem in Zurich! The pasta is great, the pizza delicious, and they always have fun specials to try if you are a regular. It can get really warm inside due to the proximity of the kitchen, so try and grab a table outside if it's nice out!

“Great little neighborhood Italian, a real gem...”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

This restaurant is "my local", so I have been there many times not to mention ordered take away, and in some ways, I was reluctant to write a review as it is already nearly impossible to get in a days in advance, and this may make it even more difficult. This place is nothing fancy, interiors seem to have been stuck in some sort of 1950s Italian movie warp, but that's just the way I like it. Red lit bar, with red-candled chandeliers dripping over, old fashioned sound system you see if you get the little table by the door, playing non-descript chill out music, but if you sit here long enough you will see all the locals come and collect their pizzas. That is because it is the best pizza to be had anywhere in the vicinity of Zurich city. If you are on the budget, catch tram no.2 or tram no.4 in direction of Tiefenbrunnen to Frohlichstrasse, walk few paces, order your pizza, and take it to the lake which is literally 50m down the street. Fabulous way to enjoy the city. If you decide to eat-in, home made pasta is fab, as are the low key entrees of tomato bruschetta or buffalo mozzarella and tomato tower. They always have daily specials. My favorite is their gnocchi, the best i have had in Zurich. On a recent visit, my friend's cordon bleu was not up to scratch, it was deep fried rather than pan fried, affecting the taste. Our pastas however were all fab. Perhaps the trick is to stick to pizza and pasta. They have recently acquired some outdoors tables which spill onto the side walk, fab on a warm summer night. Another cosy little place few doors down Cuccina i Libri and Miracle share the space by handing out chalk for kids to draw, and the whole street and the eateries have atmosphere of long bygone era and community spirit. Worth a small detour (10min tram ride) from centre of town (e.g. Bellevue) if you are touring the city.

“Best pizza in Switzerland”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

Make sure you don't eat your fingers while eating their pizzas or bruschettas. People from the 'hood love the place and are mostly local. Just one recommendation : don't charge me for the olives you brought as an appetizer (5 chf). Other than that, good quality vs. Price!
