My family and I visited for some good Italian as we were looking for something different then traditional swiss food. The service is great and the food is awesome. Just remember to make reservations if you would like a table outside. Highly recommend!!

Truly original choice of pasta plates. The goal of the cook is really to make you travel around Italy with a wide choice of pasta. Not expensive at all and suits for every type of meal. You should try it for sure !
