“A bit confusing, but good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

It took us several minutes to figure out how to order the food, but once that was figured out, we sat down and enjoyed the pizza and pasta. Thin crust pizza and plenty of cheese on the pizza. It didn't take very long for the pizza to be cooked. You order the food by deciding what to order then going to the "window" to order it. You are given a device that buzzes when the food is ready to be picked up. You pay before leaving at the register.

“Great pasta, prepared to order!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

The decor looks great, the staff at the counter near the door are swift to greet you cheerfully (definitely in German or English, and I suspect other languages), and the billing system is straightforward (a card, which is 'loaded' with the items you order; you pay the balance on departure, no waiting for a bill to come).
The pizza is cooked to order, with a range of 'standard' toppings (the price list is clear how much each will cost). Good size, nice flavour.
The pasta is also good. A nice selection of regular combinations, with the advantage that you can customise the sauce - the cook asks, then adds extras to the sauce as it is cooked in front of you.
The price is slightly high, but not bad for Zurich. A fair range of drink options to go with your meal. The staff are swift to clean up when you are finished, but don't hover.

“Don't know why everybody likes it that much”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

In germany the chain may be have low prices, but in Switzerland prices are far from cheap. Even though you are not served but have to pick up your food, the prices are as high as in most italian restaurants in Zurich. The food is good, but not excellent. There are better places, especially for pizza. I can really understand why everybody is so excited about it.

“Quick lunch and dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

This chain is good, if you are looking for a quick lunch or dinner for a reasonable price. The quality is overall pretty good. The pizza and pasta are usually very tasteful. The salads are fresh.
