I went there to take a sandwich as take away and I already had a drink with me. What followed was a very rude lecture apparently i have no manners for taking my drink with me. I asked him what i am supposed to do with my beverage if I am grabbing something to take away. His solution let my... More

Fully recommended!! You select what you want in your Focaccia: size, cheese/meat, 2 antipasti and a salad. The focaccia bread is freshly baked and all ingredients are delicious. I had Parmesan, olive pesto, zucchini and spinach. One of the best sandwiches ever! To drink there is wine, beer and 2 types of ice teas home made: ginger and hibiscus. I... More

I simply loved the experience and will return for sure. The environment at night is cozy, nice illumination, somehow warm. The base foccacia is very good, ate least the two i tried were very well joined the tastes! The employees were nice, English speakers also and the service was quite fast for such a big space.

Very overrated restaurant which at the best of times serves average food. Nothing special about it other than its location which attracts students of the university, Food is also over priced for similar fare available at other restaurants.

Really good focaccia and nice place, you could have a really good time here! If you're lucky enough to have a good and efficient waiter... Answers like "ask by yourself to the other team" when the question is as simple as "which salad do you have" show a clear lack of respect and professionalism

Nice little foccaceria. Good honest food. Selfmade ice tea was good. A little expensive though for what you get.

The foccaceria has a lovely concept! You can easily get fresh, authentic italian food for a reasonable price. Take it out or eat it there. They also provide lots of vegetarian ingredients for the foccacia bread! A place to visit and to enjoy!

They sell focaccias filled with a wide range of italian ingredients. The concept of it is quite cool, unfortunately the quality of the food is mediocre at best and the price you have to pay certainly doesn't match the quality. I would recommend it for a quick snack on a night out in case you are craving italian food. Otherwise... More

what a welcome! - we were greeted like old friends even we came for the very first time. Very friendly service, great starters, very good mains and desserts. - This is a top spot to go to for authenic italian food and italian ambience.

I'm from saint gallen and I love focacceria! The food is so delicious and I wanna go there all the time. You've so many choices of food and the best you can fill your focaccia with your favourite flavours. It's great, you should go and visit!
