Been there with a friend from work. Place was quiet for lunch. We sat at the big long formica table, face-to-face. That was fun. Enjoyed the best pizzas baked with real wood-fired oven (i could see it from my seat). Will go back!

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...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.
