Food was average. But service is very poor. They just didn't seem to care, and the restaurant was not even busy.

I have been there several times, because I live nearby. It's located in a very trendy area of the city. The food is good and the prices are ok. My only issue is the service. Really unfriendly and don't really make an effort to make you feel welcome. Some friends have had the same experience and their attitude is more... More

Went there twice on sunday for brunch. Really great value for money! The food is above average good and the price is great for the brunch package (below 40 as I remember). The atmosphere and decoration is great. Only thing bad was that the service was a little rude and not that attentive.

I came for Sunday brunch with some of my lady friends - we reserved a table and it was a good job we did, as the place was packed (with other groups of brunching ladies). We had a prosecco, fruit juice and a coffee each, plus unlimited food. They had mini muffins, pastries, meats, cheese and some warm vegetarian dishes... More

The restaurant is situated in an old viaduct arc. That gives this place a very unique, ancient but at the same time modern atmosphere. The light's a little bit dimmed - that makes the mood more comfy and calm. You can choose wether you want to sit in the cushy lounge or at a table. The pasta was delicious and... More

Me and my friend went here, famished, for lunch. We're not from Switzerland so when the waitress asked us something and we didn't understand, we politely excused ourselves and asked her again. She almost screamed at us: "ESSEN!?" ("EAT?!"). I was almost scared to answer. When we asked if we could have the cosy table in the corner, she literally... More

Ambrosi is located at im Viadukt 25 under the rail tracks. This is a nice quiet spot in the mornings to read a magazine, catch up with all the news from the many daily papers or work on your computer projects as they offer free Wi-Fi. The soft lighting and music, option of table seating or at the rear there... More

We coincidently walked into Ambrosi one recent Sunday looking for a bite for lunch. We didn't have any high expectations but were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful interior, the quiet exterior (the street isn't highly frequented) and attentive staff. I had a tomato mozzarella salad and my companion a pizza-baguette. Food was ok, I'd suggest to bring your own balsamic... More

Looking for some after dinner drinks we visited the Ambrosi which are in one of the viaducts of Zurich West. The place was not too packed so we found a nice spot and shared some excellent teas plus some cakes. All fresh and with great taste in a cosy ans special atmosphere.

Dear reader I used to go regularly to their takeaway. The last 3 times I got half cooked pasta. So if you are into that AND you want to see overstressed cooks in a too small kitchen....go there. It is worth you while. The only Italian on this place is the name of the dishes. It is a pity because... More
