This is the second time I've visited the Mexican grocery store across the street, and then popped in here for a panini. Delicious fresh ingredients on fresh bread. An Italian sandwich with melted cheese is like a little slice of heaven. Plus, extremely friendly service. Love this place.

.. and what friendly staff welcome you when you get in. Its always a pleasure to come back to Pentagramma, its become a ritual and Leandra is just such a sunshine. Sandwiches are freshly made and price/value for Zurich is so good. Once you have discovered it, you will certainly come again.

On a recent visit to Zürich – my home for over 35 years – I chanced upon this authentic paninoteca in the heart of the city. The shop’s exceptional ciabatta as well as the padina bread are baked and delivered daily by the genial proprietor's father. Guests create toasted sandwiches based on an enticing selection of vegetables, cheeses and Italian dry-cured meats at extremely reasonable prices (CHF 9-12). The amply proportioned ciabattas definitely make for a full meal and can easily be shared. The homemade Bocca di Rosa chocolate confection is moist and lightly sugared making for a perfect end to an appetizing lunch. The cheerful and enthusiastic staff serve only to enhance an already enjoyable eating experience. But be aware that a slight wait may occur over lunchtime due to the popularity of Il Pentagramma and that a reduced selection is possible in the afternoon due to the "fresh daily" approach of the shop. There is usually ample parking along Josefstrasse, but the “deli” which is situated not far from the main train station is accessible by a short three-minute stroll from the Museum für Gestaltung tram stop (Tram Nrs. 4, 13 and 17). May I suggest that weather permitting, it’s a real treat to savor one’s sandwich sitting in nearby Klingen Park. Without a doubt, Il Pentagramma offers the best toasted sandwiches in the city and once again confirms that the Italian kitchen is distinguished by its simplicity, that tasty food relies primarily on the quality of the ingredients rather than on elaborate preparation. Il Pentagramma – simply the best!

Design your own panino! Fresh filling and excellent bread! Or pick one of the house designs! This is simple but top quality!

Excellent sandwich for minimal prize: you chose the ingredients and get a sandwich that easily feeds 2. No surprise qt lunchtime there is a huge queue.
