Great atmosphere, service and food after a day of luxury in the Grand Kameha. Walking distance (or falling out) of the hotel distance. Food - pasta starter and meat main course were very appetizing. I can't recall the desert as the red wine selection was also good; sorry!

A colleague and I visited Al dente for dinner since our hotel was close. We were both happy with that decision. The service was very good. They were attentive, friendly and took care of us throughout the dinner service. The menu has enough food choices to satisfy a group of hungry folks. I had the tuna and my colleague a... More

We had dinner this past week at this restaurant and it was lovely. I had the spinach soup and the calzone. The portion size was more than enough to satisfy me and the quality was good. A place to go back to.

Walked from the Novotel to the restaurant - about 5 minutes straight down the street. Called in at 8pm midweek and was warmly greeted and shown to a table. Premises are clean,tidy and very comfortable. Staff were attentive without being intrusive and had a very relaxed approach. We shared an antipasto platter and a large pizza - both very nice....

I was looking in Zurich for a Pizzeria and found Al Dente via Tripadvisor. As I was on business trip I was alone but the staff was very helpfull and friendly. Pizza very good and the wines they serve idem dito, all with all an acceptable price for Zurich. A place I will come back.

Walked across from the Kameha Grand Hotel after reading Trip Advisor's reviews. The food was unbelievable. Penne with olive oil (to die for), with cherry tomatoes and fresh basil were cooked al dente too perfection. Our waitress was Isabella. Her service was second to none, courteous, attentive, and personable. All her suggestions were spot on. One of the best Italian... More

Dined on a Wednesday night very late, we came in about half an hour before they closed but were welcomed by the smiling staff. The restaurant has a relaxed but sophisticated and upmarket ambience. We went for various pizzas, all reported they were excellent. I can wholeheartedly recommend the Parmigiana which was perfect, with tasty fresh ingredients. My friends advised... More
