This is our favorite little gem in Zurich. A little library with only a few tables. Unsophisticated but great food and atmosphere. The dishes are always seasonal, simple but extremely rich in flavors. The journalist-turned-chef Carlo Bernasconi has managed to create a unique place, a...More

Similar to my favorite Cafi Dihei - Cucina e Libri is small and very cozy. The 8 tables are all wooden and have a white cover with candles. The food is first class Italian (Piemont) style and is cooked by the chef himself. You are...More
