This hidden gem was recommended to us from our concierge. It was by far the best Italian we've ever had. Chef made us homemade ravioli and the service was out of this world. Not on old town but a must go to in Zurich.

We (more than 30 people) went to have lunch here during our company event. Tables were set well for a large group. We got a standard menu i.e. a rucola saland, lasagne and dessert. Nothing special but nothing was wrong. Service was not to blame. All in all, the lasagne looked a bit too long in the oven. Will visit... More

I grabbed a quick lunch here and was very unimpressed. While the restaurant was beautiful the food was not great. The pasta might have been home made but it was very over cooked and the sauce was boring. The service was poor.

It was a hot night so hot Italian food was not necessarily what one would seek immediately. But with the arrival of the homemade raviolis temperature did not matter. They were exquisite. The staff was very accommodating for our large group! They were friendly and made us feel at home. The only draw back was that like most restaurants in... More

This Italian restaurant is good for lunch, but - amongst my colleagues - has the reputation of having the smallest portions in Zurich. I was here, due to its new neighbour being closed for the summer. We took the three standard menus for speed, and there was nothing to get enthusiastic about. A (very) small green salad as a start,... More

We have literally been to this place more than 30 times within a year...absolutely great experience, something you don't get too often in Switzerland. Gerardo's (the owner) Tris di pasta is my husband's favorite meal in the whole Italian cuisine I believe, he goes for it over and over again. And yes, their homemade pastas are what you order there.... More

This is a charming and fairly authentic small Italian trattoria in Seefeld, near the Tiefenbrunnen railway station and ZKO house. We went relatively late so only had one course each. My caprese salad was wonderfully fresh with lots of basil, the olive oil and balsamico were of the highest quality. My partner's triple of ravioli looked interesting, with 3 different... More

Definately a bit off the beaten path - not far, but you wouldn't come accross it if you weren't looking for it. I would say that it objectively has the best pasta in Zurich - and from the wait staff to the whole ambiance, it's very much a true Italian dining experience.

For quite a little while L´Ulivo was the local Italian restaurant for this end of Seefeld, Zurich. It lived at lunchtime from the large number of local office staff working in the banks, investment funds, lawyers´ and consultants´ practices that had spread out around this increasingly fashionable part of town. Service was ok, if sometimes idiosyncratic, food was eatable and... More
