Dining in Switzerland is not cheap. But we like small local restaurants. This has pizza and Italian food but we ordered lamb and fish and were great.

La Cucina is a remarkable place. The interior design is classic but absolutely amazing. The open kitchen gives an inspiring atmosphere. Quality of food is clearly above average, whilst the service is attentive and also polite, yet easy going. Definitely a plus on many dimensions.
