I go often to Schützengasse for dinner with friends or family or work colleagues. Is it the best food you can get in Zurich? Probably not but it is an honest kitchen with fresh ingredients and consistently delicious. Is it the best location? No it is noisy both inside because of the crowd and outside because of the traffic but... More

We had a very pleasant dinner at Restaurant Schuetzengasse: Our table was on the first floor (the Stübli) and the waiter was very friendly and charming. Even though he was very attentive, he did not seem overbearing. Moreover, he was very competent in explaining the menu. The food was also perfect: Our starters as wells as our Cordon-Bleus were delicious... More

Recently, I went for lunch and, unfortunately, service was less then mediocre. We have been 4 persons, 3 of us having a lunch menu. The 4th just wanted to have a starter as a main – and the waiter did not find any way to accommodate this (with the excuse, this was a rule of their owner). Pretty poor! Then,... More

Went for lunch again & the weather was awful so we sat inside. The food was really good as was the friendly service but as it started to fill up with people the noise became unbearable, we had problems hearing each other speak. That said, I would still recommend it.

We enjoyed our stay and were welcome with kids the very moment we entred the restaurant. The pasta was a tick overcooked and had enough sauce but other than that a great place to go after a hectic day in Zurich.

Good a la carte and set menus. Busy at lunch, so a reservation is essential. Plenty of Italian and meat dishes. Service was good too. There's a terrace to sit outside in summer. Would recommend.

Bruno Esposito is THE host in Zurich. The service is excellent, the kitchen is simply great and the prices fair (not cheap, but really fair). From the fantastic menu, I'd recommend almost everything, particularly the veal chop ("Kalbs Kotelett"), cordon bleu and the (hand chopped) Beef Tatar. As the restaurant always is full (and I mean always) it is a... More

We were a multi country European group enjoying a dinner in this nice restaurant. All together we pretty much tasted everything on the menu and we're all pleased. Even the one who ordered sole (by that I mean one should never order fish inland). Most of us ordered food with a hint to Italian. The restaurant was a bit noisy... More

This restaurant close to the Zurich main station offers a top and very attentive service. All food tasted superb and was freshly prepared. Meat was to the point and perfect. Need to return to taste all the other great stuff on the menu.
