The host was very welcoming. Eventhough we didn't have a reservation and the location was packed on a Friday night, we received a table right away and the food arrived quite quickly. The pasta was homemade and the sauce delicious! Highly recommended if you want to eat real italian food in a local athmosphere.

Went there one evening while travelling to Zurich. Very warm welcome from the staff and the owner. Nice terrace (no view on the lake or mountains just to be clear). The food was very good. Nice dessert. A good address for Italian cuisine.

I was here for a dinner and had a steak. the meat was good, however too salty. The rest of the table got pasta, ravioli and osso bucco. Everyone was pleased with their plate. But the menu wasn't that special. The prices aren't student friendly though. The decors are overwhelming and the lights are too dimmed.

Literally the best Italian food in town. We had the truffle pasta which was the best i have ever had. The risotto with red wine figs and goat cheese was amazing. The lamb with pistachio crust was literally melting. The desert: tiramisu ( i am a big fan and it was impeccable ) and lemon sorbe in prosecco - so... More

All we had was just amazing! The first course was pear raviolini with truffled pear filling and a goose liver steak. A perfect combination. The veal chop with risotto as well as the châteaubriand of my friend were equally soft and cooked to the point. Prices are adequate, the service friendly and efficient.

average food: burrata was unrecognizable, everything much too salty and quite expensive prices for small portions. service is ok and location is cosy and special... at least!
