Being vegetarians we were skeptical of the choices we may get and the flavor, being used to an Indian palette, there couldn't have been a better place. Fortunately we were staying just a 10 minute leisurely walk, which added to the experience, due to superb weather. Outdoor seating and the gracious host made the meal even more enjoyable. Highly recommended... More

Went back to this place a couple of months back and was so disappointed. Unfortunately, the Sardinian chef and owner has sold this place to someone else and it has reverted back to the bland Italian place like most other Italian restaurants in Zurich. What a shame! If anyone knows the current whereabouts of the original owners, please do update.... More
