Very good pizza, delicious desserts, very nice and helpful service, pleasant atmosphere and music. Standard Zurich prices (= expensive if you are not used to these).

I ordered a light pizza (280 calories) and it was great! The mozzarella was so soft ! We were a big group and at the end of the meal, the staff offered us a free tequila shot! I will return there!

I've been using this pizzeria for several years and was actually reasonably satisfied with it in previous years. However, several incidents in recent months have forced me to find a new pizzeria. Firstly, if you're eating in, be prepared to wait, as it can take 45-60 minutes for pizzas to arrive. I even had this experience a few weeks ago... More

The pizza is delicious, the atmosphere is warm, the restaurant itself was an old swiss post office which gives it an authentic impression. The waiters are friendly, the pizza is real Italian baked in stone oven which gives it a nice crusty touch. the prices are above average for pizza restaurant. Reservation is recommended on Weekends.

Negativa: Not bad food but prices are way too higher than the quality offered. Positive: Most of the waiters are friendly.

The service at this restaurant is very warm and friendly. The people working there are Italians and don't speak German very well. This makes the place even more authentic. I loved the pizza. A real wood-oven pizza. I can recommend this place to people travelling by car. There's a large parking slot and it is located close to the Highway.... More

Here I report a list of some unacceptable things of our last dinner: 1. there was a MISUNDERSTANDING with our RESERVATION, although we called twice to... More

We've been at il posting a couple of times. The pizza is usually very good. No doubt about that. However the service is always incredibly slow and the waiting time can take up to one hour. My evaluation is based more on the food's quality then on the service

We have eaten here many times, have always found it to be very satisfying and tasty Italian food - is it the best ever? probably not, but is it friendly, good atmosphere and great value?- definitely! Its a local reliable choice for us. In the spring/summer the terrace is ideally positioned to benefit from the setting sun, and in the... More

Nice Italian restaurant in Zurich, inside the restaurant you have a lot of space around the tables. The food is good, but nothing spectaculair. Staff is friendly and helpful, dogs are allowed.
