Been there with a friend from work. Place was quiet for lunch. We sat at the big long formica table, face-to-face. That was fun. Enjoyed the best pizzas baked with real wood-fired oven (i could see it from my seat). Will go back!

This is a super nice place for casual dinner and drinks with some friends. The pizza is really good and you can see the pizzaiolo preparing it. This is the sister place to Rosso, another great Pizza place in Züri West.
