A nice restaurant with a pleasant and informal atmosphere in the city center. We just had a pizza baked in a wood-fired oven, it was excellent. The service is good and fast. Prices are in line with the restaurants in Zurich, that means are high. A special mention to the espresso, which is a real Italian one (very close to).... More

Great small selection. If you are open for surprises (with Italian food you can't get disappointed) I highly recommend the 'Tavolata' - the surprise menu (min. 2 person - and for the whole table). The place is always booked, make sure you make a reservation. Easy dinning in Zurich!

Bar Basso serves real Italian style espresso. Very friendly service. You have to get your coffee at the bar, but it is absolutely worth the walk: the coffee is fantastic.

I was visiting the Basso and ordering a pizza Margherita in my memory of a exquisite pizza, a "top ten" in Zürich. Unfortunately something changed. The pasta of the pizza was not well done and cooked with an unpleasant result. The Margherita is the simplest pizza therefore also the best test. I am glad that I was in good company... More

This is a super nice place for casual dinner and drinks with some friends. The pizza is really good and you can see the pizzaiolo preparing it. This is the sister place to Rosso, another great Pizza place in Züri West.

The little brother of Rosso, the famous Pizza place near Hardbruecke. Basso is a bit less charming than the original, but the food is nice.

It took us almost 60min to get a pizza which tasted like the ones I heat up in the micro wave. Overall a really bad place.
