We have been frequent customers since the restaurant opened (see my comment dated 2015). Almost once a month or more. 2016 the decline started: all the time new personnel, absolutely not qualified and no word German nor English nor French. Only Italian maybe.That maybe authentic but the result was ridiculous. And if they understood us still..Wrong drinks, wrong food etc... More

Its the second time for us to be there. It's actually a place combining restaurant and bar. Really cozy and chill. Feel like a local family restaurant from the outlook but somehow stylish inside, "surprisingly". The food are generally good. I'd say Pizza is way better then pasta there. Recommend food: Pizza Postino and Calzone Super not recommend Spaghetti Vongone

We love il Postino, housed in an old Postoffice where I used to send my Christmas cards off in the old days. Great 'Holzofenpizzas'. Should include some more choice to the white wine list (by the glass)

Very good pizza, delicious desserts, very nice and helpful service, pleasant atmosphere and music. Standard Zurich prices (= expensive if you are not used to these).

I ordered a light pizza (280 calories) and it was great! The mozzarella was so soft ! We were a big group and at the end of the meal, the staff offered us a free tequila shot! I will return there!

I've been using this pizzeria for several years and was actually reasonably satisfied with it in previous years. However, several incidents in recent months have forced me to find a new pizzeria. Firstly, if you're eating in, be prepared to wait, as it can take 45-60 minutes for pizzas to arrive. I even had this experience a few weeks ago... More

The pizza is delicious, the atmosphere is warm, the restaurant itself was an old swiss post office which gives it an authentic impression. The waiters are friendly, the pizza is real Italian baked in stone oven which gives it a nice crusty touch. the prices are above average for pizza restaurant. Reservation is recommended on Weekends.

Negativa: Not bad food but prices are way too higher than the quality offered. Positive: Most of the waiters are friendly.

The service at this restaurant is very warm and friendly. The people working there are Italians and don't speak German very well. This makes the place even more authentic. I loved the pizza. A real wood-oven pizza. I can recommend this place to people travelling by car. There's a large parking slot and it is located close to the Highway.... More
