This is a superb family run Italian Restaurant. Very homely and friendly. Food is authentic, home cooked with fresh ingredients and very reasonable price. Have to say the Carbonara was the best I have ever eaten. Bit of a job to find but worth the...More

This is a small, attractive Italian restaurant. The décor is inviting, the food above average, and the service friendly and efficient. The menu is extensive and varied and the presence of "regulars" makes you feel as if you are almost in a family dining situation

We ordered to large pizza and had some beers each. We also ordered plain tap water. They charged us 7 CHF (!!!) for two glasses. This is beyond any reason. Avoid at all costs! (pun intended)More

Ok, i've read other review and seems to be the best pizza in St Gallen but, trust me, they don't know what's pizza but they know what's money 'cause we paid too much even for Switzerland! Real italian pizza is thinner, tomato is absolutely without...More

Let me say something in advance: Mamma Assunta's pizza is NOT the typical thin large one you can get in any decent Italian pizza house. I must admit I was a little skeptical when I was served a thick "focaccia" instead. After the first bite...More

As Italian living abroad we are quite picky about Italian restaurants. Try Mamma Assunta you won't be disappointed. The quality of food is really "Italian": everything is very fresh and tastes genuine and pizza is real pizza! Giuseppe and Assunta are the perfect host!More
