Surprisingly good Italian food with a friendly server. We had spaghetti in a creamed sauce with vegetables. We would recommend this restaurant for a romantic night out

Probably one of the best restaurants in Interlaken. Really outstanding. I am vegan and the proprietor went out of the way to make an appropriate fare for me. Mushroom soup was divine according to my wife as she is vegetarian. The variety of Grappas was more than satisfying and moderate priced. Don't miss their Sorbet the pistachios in particular.

The Citta Vecchia Ristorante is located near hotels/West train station with great cuisine, service and wine. Gluten free options. My husband and I had a quiet table yet was a huge party on the other side of restaurant. Take your time and enjoy a peaceful evening.

Went there on the recommendation of my hotel. I get lost in a phone booth so I had trouble finding the place. Walking distance from town center if u can read a map. Great food, owner and staff were great to me.

We've just come back from this restaurant in Unterseen. The food was nice (4 of us ate lasagne, 1 had tagliatelle), however the mixed salad was not as rich as one would expect. What really upset us was the very slow service. We arrived at 07.30 but our order was taken only 30 minutes later and it took another half... More

We are celebrating our wedding anniversary. Authentic Italian in a quaint, cozy, yet elegant setting. Owner chef attended to almost every table personally. My husband had what we would call veal piccata in a light lemon sauce with homemade noodles. I had orrichiette with veal strips in a mushroom sauce. To start, fresh tomatoes and onion salad that we split.... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel, and we were glad it was! I ordered their homemade lasagna, and it was fabulous! My wife loved her pasta dish as well. We enjoyed a romantic dinner outside on their patio, and had a wonderful evening.

We had a 1 pizza, 1 risotto dish, and water for a grand total of 60 franks. Food was average, not bad but certainty not outstanding. If you want tap water they charge you 5 franks for it, which is illegal in Switzerland. Restaurants are required to provide tap water for free if a guest asks.

Dear WorldNomad2 Thankyou for visiting our Restaurant. It is always a great pleasure to welcome Americans or any nationality guests. We are sorry that you did not understand the menu card because you did not pay for the water but for the "service for tap water" that we brought the water to your table and gave you 4 glasses to...

OK, it was four years since we last ate here; and it's still wonderful. My husband I ate here three times in one week. We tried a variety of dishes: pizza, mixed seafood grill, veal with lemon sauce, seafood salad, pasta with eggplant, and (to the chef's amusement) lasagna for dessert. We have to come back. We have eat our... More
