This pizzeria is in less-attractive part of Zurich (while it is becoming more and more hip), location is basically under a bridge, a concrete monument crossing railway and former industrial parts. No view (except if you like to watch people getting in and out of trams), no nature. Menu is standard pizzeria type, although some denominations are "different" and you... More

Really, truly fantastic food. This time we chose the Strazzapreti. The home made pasta was perfect and the tastes was delicate and balanced. This time we needed a tiramisu each (last time we shared one) Still the best Tiramisu ever. I would love to bring both family, friends and business relations here. The staff is helpful, smiling and just lovely.... More

We just went out for a Saturday meal. Went by the tram to a random stop and found this pearl. We started with a bruchetta. with the wine recommended by the waiter this was a perfect start. Then came the veil with the home made pasta and truffle. Now I was in food heaven. The taste was delicate and perfect.... More

Had an enjoyable Italian meal (pizza and pasta) while sitting outside along the street. The location is next to a busy tram stop, so plenty of opportunity to people watch while waiting for the food and eating. Very friendly owner stopped by a couple of times to check on us. Enjoyable time and food.

We were sitting outside, the restaurant was almost empty since it was already a bit late. We got two pizze (bufala, ~20CHF, and miss Italia, ~27CHF) which were very tasty, and the service was very friendly (perhaps because we are Italian)

I have often been to il Gallo and am always enthralled with the wonderful variety on offer. The range available in the monthly specials means that even if regularly frequenting il Gallo, one can always find a new, delectable item on the menu. Now that i have been there a few times i sometimes however revert to my old favourites;... More

Exceptional service. Well informed waitors, who were excellent at recommending suiting wines and took good care of us throughout the meal. Popular place, fills up during lunch time and dinner times.

This was the only place I could find on a weekday night that was still open for food after a lovely visit to the Rigiblick Theatre. This fact alone was disappointing (Weltstadt Zurich? Not if you are hungry after 10 PM). No reason to go back there, but at least my hunger was stilled and it wasn't terrible.

On a very rainy day, we stopped here. Not having had breakfast, we were very hungry. Our waitress came over with the menus and acted like she was mad at us. I guess she does not like tourists. She haughtily took our order, and it arrived in decent time. The spaghetti was great-my wife bolognese while I had carbonara. The... More
