Well known brand of restaurants holds its mark. Good vine list and no negative surprises when ordering food. Price wise a bit more expensive then other similar restaurants lets say in Monaco but in line with Zurich prices

Description
Cantinetta Antinori is one of the most typical Italians on a high level thanks to its location on Zurich's Bahnhofstrasse, the world-famous family brand Antinori, the charm of the old town house, the simple cuisine of Tuscany and the rich wine range of Marchesi Antinori.
