We came here for lunch and took the suggestions: artichoke with burrata as a starter, Ossining bucco as a main and the Saint Honoré as a dessert. As a wine we chose the Le Cupole Trinoro 2012. We had a fantastic meal with excellent Italian service.

Since 1985 I have been visiting this noble place with a great pleasure, although its name has changed twice in the meantime (as long as I know) i.e. Piccoli Accademia, Accademia and now under the current name; the restaurant seemingly has changed hands several times. But the quality of cuisine and service have been maintained at a high level. There... More

This restaurant keeps quality high, for many years it is everytime a great pleasure to visit accademia del gusto. The delicious food, the rich wine card, the tasty deserts, all really top of the top and at fair price. Located very centrally, parking might be an issue, but they even have a few valet parking slots, just ask. Highly recommended.

Very refined restaurant for a dinner with a tone. There is great attention to details and setting is banquet style. The dishes are upper-scale, with attention to both presentation and flavour.

I enjoyed several meals at Accademia, both at lunch and dinner. Its always a pleasure to eat here. Food is always top, be it the starters, pasta or the mains from land and sea. At lunch they always offer some good value set menus. Nice restaurant, service rather formal but very friendly and professional.

Food is OKis, service acceptable, prices don't reflect the quality. Pity, used to be a great place, now just average.

Visiting friends living in Zurich they had booked us here based on a recommendation by local friends. And no wonder why... We were greeted by an Italian speaking lady with the appropriate big hand gestures. The place was lively and some big event was going on in the close by banquet room. Some bubbly to start with and we dove... More

I was out with a good friend of mine. What we ordered was just delicious for example this risotto with Shrimp tartare. So all ingredients to have a nice evening. But the waiter could so rude with us. No smile, no attention. As if we were disturbing ... We paid a fortune 140 CHF per person. Not sure I would... More
