Casa Ferlin is not just another Italian restaurant on town but an institution. The interior design was probably done decades ago and every time I come here it is exactly the same. Service is efficient, competent and unique. Many famous people eat here. A highlight are the ravioli. As fine as it can be with a secret recipe. Food here... More

This was the place where my parents had their first date about 30 years ago and it's still the place where we go, when we have something to celebrate - or simply when we crave excellent Italian food. Must-taste are of course the self-made Ravioli...and everything else on the menu. Very friendly staff as well. Well deserved 5/5 :-).

Casa Ferlin is in short walking distance from the main RR station, the Central Square, and the Marriott Hotel. All is Italian from the 3rd generation family owners, to the worn down Postwar decoration, the friendly staff, and the wonderful meals: Super raviolis and other pasti, fish, meat, and desserts. Nothing flashy about it, but perfect quality with typical Italian... More

A must try for old school Italian food! One of very few places outside Italy that deserves the name 'italian'

This is a must when in Zurich. Great tasty italian food. I Recommend the ravioli and one of the meat dishes. Very traditional (filet rossini, etc). Just be aware that this is heavy food, they use a lot of butter in many dishes.

First negative review I've written but this one is deserved. Visited on Thursday night having travelled all day, hoping for a simple Italian meal a short distance from our hotel. The prices were astronomical - minimum of 40CHF for a basic pasta dish. At least I thought the food would be worth it. Sadly both dishes were sloppily presented and... More

Everything about the Casa Ferlin is solid - very attentive service, charming interior decor from way back - the sixties perhaps - and classic Italian dishes. It is by no means cheap - expect to pay at the very least 100 Swiss francs a head with wine, but it's dependable and very good quality. Recommended for those who like traditional... More
